Melted Crayons

 Hey everybody!

Heads up, today's posts pictures are not very good. They're blurry and just not good quality at all.I was early in the morning and I had to leave to go to midterms and I have a tendency to pick at my nails (Don't do that, it's very bad for your nails) so I wanted to take a picture of them before I left. I'll probably end up redoing them just cause I don't have a good picture of them and I don't think I did my best job on these. Also you can see where my nail broke on my ring finger. :(


 Today's manicure was inspired by this melted crayon art. I really like how they incorporated the cut out silhouettes of people into the artwork.

 I started with a base of Pure Ice "Super Star!" on all of my nails and created the gradient using a sponge on my index, middle, and pinky fingers with Super Star! and China Glaze "Holly-Day" I used a small dotting tool on my ring finger and thumb to create the melted "crayons" with Simple Pleasures "You're Lime-ing", LA Colors "Bright Green", and Holly-Day. I also mixed some of those colors together to create the drips. Then I took a striper and black acrylic paint and I painted the silhouette of the girl on the swing. I top coated everything with Out The Door. (Yay! I finally got a new topcoat!)
