|My Thumb = My favorite!|
I got my inspiration from IartKandi's YouTube video. Click the link to watch her video. Her tutorial is great and she taught me everything I know. This is the fist time I attempted sponging let along using a stripe brush to make a object. I mean stripes I have done but palm trees, definitely not. It went better than expected and I love the results.
Glitzerland, Y'all Come Back Ya Hear?, Blazed, Dream Poppy,
Black Striper, Makeup Sponge
I laid down two coats of Glitzerland to make my nail opaque. I then put one coat of Y'all Come Back Ya Hear? over my whole nail. Next came the sponging which was quite fun. I sponged on Blazed first which is a coral so it blended the orange and the pink together. I then sponged on the Dream Poppy and finished up with sponging on a couple of coats of Glitzerland on the bottom of my nail to represent "sand". In the YouTube tutorial she uses beautiful blues which I love. Lord knows I have enough blues to do ombre down the street, so I might have to try that one next. I had fun with this one and surprised myself that I could perform nail art that didn't just require cutting tape.
