The last time I tried to do some nail art was around Easter and I failed miserably. I had a cute peep mani idea, but I was lacking one key element…actual nail art tools. All I had were dotting tools…I tried to work with that but failed. So the last time I paid a visit home, I found all of my old art supplies and a bunch of brushes. Yay…with that and another nail art brush I purchased I was all set finally So since I’ve never made any real attempts with brushes I just started with a super basic design. Today I have for you my “Under the Sea” mani featuring Color Club Chelsea Girl.
I love Chelsea Girl, it’s a vibrant electric blue and kind of on the jelly side…but not entirely. Ok, here’s what I came up with, remember its simple so don’t expect to “oooohh and aaaaah” and then find yourself not
Here is what I used for this “masterpiece”
Bubbles: Dotting tools and Orly Au Champagne; Seaweed: Color Club Twiggie; Starfish: Pop Beauty Ablaze and Pure Ice Twinkle.
The starfish is a little funky. It was slightly funky to start out with then it dragged a little when I put my top coat on and got more funky, probably because it was a little thick. I dunno how people can do those super tiny detailed nail art. I feel like I need those microscopic lense/light things that guys use to paint their lil sci-fi figurines. I can’t remember what they’re called, but hopefully you know what I’m talking about.
I know this is extremely simple compared to all the other nail art out there, but I still think this is simply cute
