31DC2015 Inspired by the Supernatural – Fairies

I think this design turned out just okay – I don’t hate it, but I don’t think it looks that great either. I do love the accent glitter, Sinful Colors Star Studded. The stars are a bit tricky to get on the brush but look great with the silver and gold glitter. I didn’t apply a color base underneath, but I’d recommend a silvery-gold polish so the swatch better matches the bottle. I used acrylic paint on the flowers and fairies, but went over the petals with Sinful Colors Triple Platinum. If I had to redo this nail art, I think I would change the background colors to something more neutral and/or also make the flowers silhouettes.

31DC2014 Supernatural: Will-o’-the-Wisps

I recently saw Brave, and it gave me the idea to do the Will-o’-the-wisps from the movie for “supernatural” day. I always get stuck on this one and end up thinking about Halloween-themed manis. I think these characters are so cute and mysterious, and they make a great nail art design. To start off, I applied two coats of L’Oreal Raven’s Strength, a black with subtle shimmer. I then filled in a rough outline of the Wisps with Sinful Colors Most Sinful, a deep blue. I drew a more obvious outline with KISS Nail Art Light Blue on top of that as a guide. I filled in the outlines with messy strokes of the light and deep blues plus also added Brucci Kathy’s Baby Blues and Piggy Polish Blue-ming Romance. To finish them, I dotted the eyes in white.

31 Day Challenge 2013: Inspired by the Supernatural

Fairies! I tried to draw them as best I could, but I don’t know if you’d be able to tell they’re fairies without knowing. The pink is Sinful Colors Starfish. For the gold, I used Funky Fingers Golden Grace with Maybelline Color Show Gold’s Night Out on top – both beautiful gold glitters.

31 Day Challenge: Inspired by the Supernatural

When I started this one I wasn’t planning on just using black and white, and had several colors selected. But I wasn’t happy with my original design at all, so I decided to do something much simpler.
