Well, this is my 200th post, everyone! I have something special for today- mushroom themed nail art.
These are not wicked hallucinogenic mushrooms, they are innocent, enchanted fairy mushrooms in the forest. I’ll save the psychadelic mushrooms for another time after I perfect the water marbling technique.
First, I mixed a green jelly from 2/3 creme yellow to 1/3 China Glaze Bermuda Breakaway, a blue creme. I then added about 15 drops of clear polish to give it a more translucent base. I’d wager this color is a lot like NARS Zulu but a couple shades lighter.
I painted two coats on and let them dry. From there, I used my dotting tool to add burgundy and white dots to my thumbs and ring finger.
For the pinkie, I painted a white tip, let it dry, and then used Essie Fishnet Stockings for the red. I added some white dots with my dotting tool.
I had to paint the entire mushroom shape using white creme before I painted the red caps, otherwise the red will not show up well against the dark green. After painting the caps red and adding dots, I outlined the mushrooms with my black Sally Hansen nail art pen.
My rarely-seen left hand is a bit wobbly but I wanted to show it to you!
The whole manicure.
I find myself staring at these because they are really just too cute. This one is over the top in a fun way!
I hope everyone has enjoyed my blog so far and will keep coming back for more. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
