Evening everyone! I hope you've all had a great weekend :)
Today I have one of my favourite manicures to share, and it's for a fantastic book, Fingerprints of You by Kristen-Paige Madonia. I did this all free hand and wanted to try and capture the tattoo-look of the cover.
The base of these nails is ChiChi Can't Buy My Love which I bought recently, it was the perfect colour for the aged parchment-look of the cover.
I painted the pink petals with Zoya Maya and a small brush. I added the stems with L.A Colors Art Deco Striper in Bright Green. I used L.A Colors Color Craze Shock for the centre of each flower (I have two versions of this polish, both have the same name on the bottle but one is more yellow and the other is orange. I used the orangey version.)
I also used the L.A Colors Art Deco Striper in Bright Green to paint the hummingbird's chest, wings and the top of his head. I added Zoya Maya to his face and added some L.A Colors Craze Sea Siren to the wings.
I used a Glam Nails nail art pen in Jet Black to do the outline and details on the flowers, stems, and the hummingbird.
Finally I sponged Barry M Mushroom on the tops and base of the nails to add to the parchment-look.
This was a lot of fun to do, and it was nice to do something different from stamping and taping. I'd love to have a go at the font used for Kristen's name or the title but I'll save that for another day ;)
