So ladies and gents, behold my "A Leaf Per Nail" design:
Has something like this ever happened to you while you are painting your nail? I mean, you intend to do one thing and end up doing another? Isn't it crazy? But I am not complaining with this particular "craziness" because I really liked the results. It's simple, easy to do, and classy.
For base, I chose a charcoal gray polish -- Dazzle Dry Joan's Armor in 2 coats. And I painted the design using acrylic paints and nail art brushes that I recently acquired from Born Pretty. Review and link for purchase can be found here.
As the title suggests, I painted a single leaf on each nail accompanied by a light gray big circle and a few random very small dots. I think that it complemented the leaf really well.
Maybe if I had a bigger nail bed, I'd probably would have painted more leaves. I think that would look great. But my small beds will have to be satisfied with having a leaf instead.
Here's a crazy thought, I can now call my nails eco-friendly! If you're an environmentalist and would like to express your advocacy through your nails, this is probably a suitable design for you. ;)
Have you been inspired by leaves for a nail art design?
Bottom line, I really liked this color combo and the leaves were a bonus. How about you? What do you think?
