Morning! Today I want to share a mani I did for a wonderful new novel, Fairtytales for Wilde Girls by Allyse Near. The cover is gorgeous, as are the illustrations inside, and I was determined to try this cover as a manicure, despite being worried I could not do it justice.
On every nail apart from my middle one, I used 2 coats of Nails Inc. Kensington which is a rich, dark bottle green. On my middle nail I used 2 coats of Picture Polish Nude.
On my thumb and pinky nails I used a small brush and Barry M Mushroom to do the branches and added China Glaze Kalahari Kiss to give them texture.
On my index nail I painted the mushrooms using a fine brush, China Glaze White Out and Ulta3 Cherrylicious. I added the dots with a dotting tool.
On my middle pinky I used a fine brush and Orly Liquid Vinyl to do the bunny, and I dotted on his eye and nose using the same red and white mentioned above. I was really happy with how Bunny turned out but I can't say the same for the next nail..
Finally on my ring nail I wanted to paint Isola. I did everything but her face, using China Glaze White Out for her skin, China Glaze Kalahari Kiss and Ulta3 Pale Dahlia for her hair. Then I attempted her facial details about 3 times but I just did not have anything fine enough to let me do detailed eyes, a nose or a mouth so I gave up and gave her 2 dots for eyes and a small smile. I'm sorry, Isola - she looks nothing like you!
