The nail art that I painted for our holiday (vacation). I was really pleased that it lasted for the 10 days between being painted, all through the 8-day holiday, and then the family get-together the following day. I have to admit I was thrilled with the way this one turned out. I kept it looking good by touching up the black on the tips with a black marking pen every couple of days with an occasional addition of good quality top coat. It was easier to pack a marking pen than acrylic paints and brushes LOL
I've returned to very full message centres so please bear with me as I reply to you all (copy and paste will be my friend, forgive me ) and return to normal with everything else in my life too. Holiday photos will be uploaded in time. Oh my goodness, I am so stunned. A Daily Deviation My most sincere thanks to Maytel for the nomination and to for accepting Thank you both soooo much Kindly requested by Kindly featured by Happy Birthday MayEbony!Today is MayEbony's Birthday!
I had never considered the difficulty of nail art, but the brilliant colours and graceful design of this work are indicative of style, planning and creative output rarely seen in such culture conscious offerings. I love that each is different, each finger has its own artistic completion, and while I find it sad that it is temporary in our world of art, the picture will last forever, as well as the great pleasure to the eye. I am intrigued to see more of this kind of work because of the brilliant job done here. I am inspired to try, myself, though I imagine a steady hand as well as a thoughtful creation are needed. Bravo, May.
Thank you so much dear Tracey. I really love my weekly manicure. Occasionally I have a big fail, but was super happy with this one. (And the one I replaced it with, though David tells me my new one is boring )
Ha ha. Well that's one thing with nail art, it does *not* last long, but that's good because you get to enjoy new adventures The next design will be happening very soon. Should have been last night officially but the tulips are lasting remarkably well and there's a big spring cleaning of my house just around the corner, which is always bad news for nail polish. It takes the normal day-to-day stuff, but not the major tasks.
Thank you so much my Sweet Eve! It was such a wonderful surprise and I couldn't believe how fast it happened. 42 hours between uploading the deviation and receiving the DD - I never knew they could work that fast All of these comments and really have made my day
