The last day of May I attempted my most intricate design so far. Since May has been kind of crappy for me, I decided to tackle a design that I’ve had on the back burner for a while. From crappy you can only move on up, right? When I was little my mom had a book called ‘Flower Fairies of the Spring’ by Cicely Mary Barker, that I was totally mesmerized by and I’ve wanted to do a flower fairy for so long. So I decided to start off with Daisy Fairy, she is so cute and I thought I could fit her onto my nails.
Well, my nails aren’t that big so the detailing are definitely lacking and it was so tiny. But nevertheless I’m so happy with the end result. Here she is my little Daisy Fairy:
Now when I see them side by side I certainly find room for improvement, and I think I will attempt more fairies in the future. They are so sweet. I made a little tutorial for the daisy, I’m not able to film the fairy itself because it takes forever and I really need to move my hand around too much.
- I started with a base of OPI ‘My vampire is buff’
- Sponged Essie ‘Cocktails & coconuts’ on top to create the vintage feeling in the background.
- Acrylic paint for the rest. The pictures are self explanatory. To get thin lines it’s important to just practice a lot to get the right amount of paint on your brush, the right pressure when painting and how diluted the paint should be.
- Top coat and clean up.
Be prepared with patience if you attempt a fairy too 😀
Some more pictures because I love her so much and I’m pretty pleased with myself. I hope you like her.
