Nail art

I read a lot of books and work in front of the computor, that can become very boring, so in an attempt to cope with sitting still; I paint my nails. You know, nail varnish needs time to dry, right?
Inspired by Cutenails tutorials I tried nailart myself, an easy one. Well not very easy, my hands are a bit shaky and I will not show you the other hand that I painted with my right hand (I'm lefthanded)
I used a golden varnish as a base and black and ocra acrylic paint to make swirls and dots. The tools comes froma nail art box I bought at the local supermarket, nothing fancy. I used a dotting tool and a fine brush. 
Heres a video of some inspiration. This video is quite old but it's a good starter and she has developed her style tremendously since then.
Like this one

Time for digging down in my books again, while the varnish is drying.

  1. Snyggt! jag köpte något slags nagellack med tunna penslar...målade en tunn linje på ett annat lack men det torkade aldrig..sur. Stod inget om att det skulle användas ihop med en tork eller så...

    1. Måla mönstret med akrylfärg istället :-). Vanlig hobby-målarfärg

    1. When I was a teenager, I painted zebra strips with a toothpick, that can be an option if a brush is hard to manouvre.

  4. I agree with everyone, that you're much more skilled than I! I wouldn't even attempt a fancy pattern - I'm happy if I can manage not to get grey polish all over the sides of my fingers. I really need to try my Jamberry's one day, but I'm afraid I'll ruin them all trying to get them on right. :)

    1. Of course you will try your jamberry :-). I also get a lot of paint on my fingers but that is easily removed.
