It’s been quite a while since I really tried to use my acrylic paints the last time. Now I decided to give them a try and paint some flowers on my nails. It wasn’t a big success but not a total failure either. I really need better nail art brushes though and a lot of practice. Painting is fun though and if I get better at it I could maybe eventually create something that is actually nice. I have a lot of ideas and I can always find more inspiration from the photos and tutorial videos of true nail artists.

For the manicure I used Flormar shade U29 and on my ring finger I also added Flormar U18 with a sponge to bring some depth and darker appearance on that nail. On top of those I added a coat of Wet n Wild Kaleidoscope glitter polish. Acrylic paints are Oumax and I also used those for the little dots I did with a dotting tool. After the acrylic paint dried I added a coat of Inm Out The Door Northern Lights Gold top coat.

I have so little experience with acrylic paints that it was quite time consuming trying to get it right. The good thing about acrylic paints is that you can just use water to wipe to wet paint off if you mess it all up. That’s what I did with the first five tries ;)
