I may die. I can feel a sickness coming on and I am not sure if it will simmer down, or kill me before I have a week of weddings to do. This is bad. I am kind of in panic mode. After next week, I may take a week off from Claw of Cthulhu. Or two weeks. I will try not to do three months. That was sort of bad. I could just do nail swatches instead of regular programming - that stuff is kind of easy. Anyway this nail art kind of describes everything I am thinking. I hope you enjoy it.
Here's a list of things I used for this nail art:
+ nail art brush
+ Essence Give Me Nude, Baby! (white jelly base)
+ Sally Hansen Black Out (black lettering)
+ Essence Naughty and Pink! (roses)
+ Essence Free Hugs (rose highlights)
+ Essence L.O.L. (rose leaves)
+ Essence Beijos De Brazil (rose leaf shadows)
I (obviously) freehanded all of this - the calligraphy is a little more wonky that I would have liked but since I only paint with enamel, it's pretty hard to maintain a smooth look. I might try mixing it with thinner next time to experiment with different consistencies. I'm pretty happy with the roses, though. They look cute and intricate and a huge difference from my roses last year.
How would you approach calligraphy nail art? Should I bite the bullet and just use acrylic paints? (I'm trying my best to do lacquer only nail art! I know it's possible (see: @kgrdnr on Instagram)
