I was planning on doing holo nails today since its super hot and sunny. But at the last minute I changed my mind and went with 3D nail art. It always takes awhile for me and this was my second time using arcylic to make 3D art. I used a mold the last time and it had worked great but for some reason todays mold didnt bring me pretty art - I wanted to make bows. After a few tries, i ripped what i had already done off and started over without the mold. Freehanding my bows was a lot easier and faster.
I started with two coats of OPI Steady As She Rose. Followed by a coat of Seche Vite. Then using pink acrylic powder and liquid, I made bows on each nail. When I was done, I added a pink rhinestone to the middle of each bow and sealed with another coat of Seche Vite. Then because I love blingy nails..the blingier the better.. I added extra rhinestones to my ring finger. I used clear, yellow and gold stones for that and once again sealed with SV. Yes that's lots of top coat but hopefully no stones will fall off.
Has anyone tried acrylic art? How do you like it?
