Hiya guys. How's it going today? I cannot believe I made it in time to post this weeks prompt for the Nail Crazies Unite group. Last night, I decided to take a nap and I may or may not have slept till almost midnight. Spoiler alert... I did. That meant I had maybe an hour to get a mani together before taking care of the puppy and going back to bed. As I've always said, I work well under pressure (or at least that's what I like to think haha) and have come up with snazzy manis in the past just in the nick of time. The prompt for this week is one I picked out myself and it's 'Candy'. So here's the wacky-looking gumballs I came up with!
What do you think? I'll admit I just about labeled this mani a 'nail fail' and didn't post about it. After it was all done and sealed with glossy goodness, I instantly changed my mind about the whole thing. I think this is the first time I've done such a colorful mani!
Here's the materials used to create this look:
- Polishes: Salon Perfect Sugar Cube
- Dotting Tools in multi-sizes
- Acrylic Paint: Blue, Green, Purple, Yellow, Red, and Orange from American Crafts
- Fast Drying Topcoat: Seche Vite
I felt terrible last week not being able to come up with something for the 'love song' prompt. Believe me, I tried. Everything I attempted came out looking terrible and I did not have the will to post it. Of course, that meant I was going to go all out for this prompt. Unfortunately, I got stuck for ideas again. Thankfully my nail bestie helped me out and gave me a 'skittle' mani idea. After showing my hubs, he called them 'gumballs' and I realized they definitely looked way more like that than skittles. Haha.
The best part about this mani is how easy it was to accomplish - all you need is a dotting tool!
