Summer nails!

Hello everyone!

I decided to enter in the last days of contest for the bornprettystore summer nail art contest.

There's no video tutorial for these because I spent a LOT of time doing them. I'll give some step by step but the designs are done 100% with acrylic paints.

I never really painted details on nails, so this was a first time for me. I mixed a lot of colors to get the details and tones. The pictures don't do justice because they look so much better in real.

What I did for the base was paint my nails with a white base polish and then seal it in uv top coat when it dried completely. I then painted over it and the final result was sealer in another layer of uv top coat.

The uv top coat prevents smudges and adds a beautiful shine to the final design.

I used a single 0000 brush for everything, and very little water.

I couldnt decide on one design I wanted to make so I made all 4 of these. I got my inspiration from beach wallpapers I found on google. My favorite came out to be the pinky and ring finger.

Here's some close ups, even though I couldnt catch a good picture of any of them.

If there's any voting done on the contest, plese dont forget about me <3

Thank you for stopping by!
