Good morning folks!
Today is super exciting as we 'The Crumpet's Nail Tarts' embark on a brand new 52 week challenge entitled '40 Great Nail Art Ideas'. Over 40 fabulous bloggers will be posting a mani a week following the prompts below... The nice little twist is that on each of the colour weeks we all have a different pattern prompt to go with it - That's a whole lot of nail art loves! I can't imagine just how much thought and preparation that went into this, I'm so proud to be a Crumpet's Nail Tart!
So to begin this journey we have 'Hobbies' and my lifelong hobby since I could hold a crayon has been colouring in. It's funny that I've been gently teased about my penchant for a colouring book and some crayola by friends/family etc over the years, yet now it's 'the thing' to be doing to relax and take a bit of 'me time'... I always knew that! My absolute favourite of the adult colouring books so far is the Zifflin's Doodle Invasion and this mani was inspired by just that.
This mani was so simple I almost can't tell you hahaha, I literally did a bit of colouring in! I started off with three thin coats of Barry M White, leaving to dry for a good twenty minutes. I then stamped the MoYou London Rebel image using Avon Licorice. I then coloured in parts of the design with my Sharpies and finished with Barry M Matte Topcoat.
I love, love, love how this turned out especially the thumb, index and middle fingers. I only wish my nails were bigger canvasses! Want a tip for colouring with Sharpies on polish? Use a light dotting/dashing technique rather than the normal pen on paper motion to avoid dragging & pulling your base. Nothing was needed to 'fix' the pen ink before topcoating.
That's all from me today but don't forget to take a look at how the other ladies hobbies have played out on their nails below...
