Hi! Finally, exams are done! I can finally paint my nails all day long! Haha. I'm just so excited to swatch the nail polishes that I bought and to stamp them with my MoYou London and FUN plates. I still have a lot of unused plates.
Since it's already summer break, I decided to make a summer related nail art. I also dedicate this nail art to my boyfriend who has a saltwater aquarium. For my base, I initially painted my nails with China Glaze Hopeful. I, then, sponged it with some gradient using China Glaze Aqua Baby, OMG Atlantis and Nature Republic Mint Sky. I love gradients but they are so messy to do.
Do you have any tips on how I can lessen my cleaning time when doing gradients? Please comment them below. I would love to know how to avoid getting my fingers all messy with the sponge.
Going back to the nail art. I stamped it with MoYou London Sailor 08. I also did a few decals (still with MoYou Sailor 08).
I really like how this turned out. There are some imperfections but I'm happy with it. :)
Here are some close up shots:
This fish doesn't have eyes. Haha. Should have put some white dots.
I experienced some bubbling when I added the top coat. I made a theory last night. Haha. I shouldn't apply top coat (or any polish) when the AC's fan is directed towards me. Stupid mistake. I should have turned it off when I applied the top coat. Haha. Oh well, the bubbles could just add accent to it since it's a sea-themed nail art. :)
I hope you enjoyed reading this post and looking at the photos as much as I enjoyed making them :) See you on my next post! :)
