Previously on nailart: part 2

After I did the Easteregg manicure (see part one) I did another Easter manicure with eggs that had a simple tribal print and with cute little bunny’s with bow-ties. Please forgive me for the terrible photo quality, I promise it will get better; at the time I started doing nailart I knew nothing at all about photography.

These tribal printed eggs and bunny’s were all done with either Etos Effect nails or Essence Colour & Go, I also had old polished lying around that have no name or well known brand that I used here, such as the light pink in the bunny’s ears on my pinky finger, the hot pink base colour on my middle finger and some others I believe..

And that’s it for the holiday nailart so far, I’m looking forward to paint cartoons on my nails for Christmas! Also, in the Netherlands we have a celebration earlier in December called ‘Sinterklaas’, it’s something like Santa (in fact, Santa is a misunderstanding, the Americans created Santa Clause after the Dutch colonists told them about our Sint Nicolaas). The basics are the same, a man in a red costume wearing a hat, he has men working for him and he gives presents to children during the night. I will have a lot of fun coming up with something for that one =)

Other things that I did are fruit nails, I did the classic watermelon nails and the strawberry’s. I’ve also done Minnie Mouse nails those days:

I’ve also tried Union Jack nails, and I did a cartoon mani that I saw on Youtube, it was called ‘Picknick Thieves’. That one was cute but the pictures are no good, I will probably re-do them sometime and make better pictures.

Pictures that worked out fine are the ones from my pokémon nails, on the left is Pikachu and on the right is Togepi:

After this I discovered that you can also use acrylic paint for your nails so I bought a small basis package of acryl paint. I’m also into normal painting on a canvas instead of bodies, I just barely practice that version.

I also tried a new technique called watermarble, on the pictures below you can see my attempts.

And this pretty much wraps up the highlights so far!

Enjoy watching & feel free to request (:
