Nail Art Tutorial - Bear of Pink and Blue

For my last Valentine's inspired nail art, I decided to go for something "cutesy". I chose to wear a deep brown polish for the weekend but I didn't know what design yet. But last night, my mom asked me to paint roses on her nails and she mentioned that pink would look good on my newly polished nails. So when I got back to my personal nail station, I started to think about pink. Surprisingly, bears came to mind. Then I got this idea of painting a bear couple!

Here's the result:

Yes, I painted a pink bear and a blue bear, a girl and a boy represented by color. I patterned my teddy bears to the previous one that I did, that you can view here.

Base color is 2 coats of China Glaze Ingrid. Fabulous color and is a possible 1 coater polish. It's a deep chocolate brown that has a very shiny finish even without a top coat. Application is smooth and easy. I'd say it's a good choice to bring light colors to life like pink and light blue.

I decided that the pink bear belongs on my left hand and the blue one on my right. Initially, I wanted to paint them on 2 nails that are beside each other. But I wanted to paint big hearts on the others nails so I decided on having accent nails instead.

Here's a closer look at the pink bear:

I also was able to create a video tutorial on how I painted the teddy bears. Perhaps this video can address those who requested an actual footage of how I paint designs on my nails.



I also have some good news. I have been meaning to upload a video on how I paint with my non-dominant hand. I finally was able to come up with a decent recording and I'll be sharing it with you on my next post. I know that I have promised this a long time ago and I really had a hard time coming up with a good video. I hope it will be helpful to those who have asked me how I paint with my weaker hand. Stay tuned!

  6. I love them, Rina! Could you please tell me how you mixed the bright turquoise with acrylic paint? My turquoise always comes out dusty, I guess it's because I don't have colors bright enough to begin with. As a reference, I'm using the 14 piece acrylic set from BPS.

    I am also using the 14-pc acrylic set from BPS. I started with the darker blue and lighten it with Liquitex white acrylic. I totally love the consistency of this white paint so I got a big tube and have been using it if I encounter a color that I don't like the consistency. I just mix a little amount of this white color to make any color brighter. I hope my answer helped. :)
