I really struggled with today's choice. I wanted to do butterfly wings, but I also had a really cool idea for an outline! In the end I decided whichever I picked, the other could be saved for the 'theme you missed' day. I chose butterfly wings. I have done these before, but I did a little Google image searching just to make sure I remembered them correctly! I found THIS picture over at Nail Art Gallery, and I decided I wanted to recreate it. The wings are drawn slightly differently, giving it a more delicate and (I think) more realistic look.
Lol You can tell I'm ashamed because the pictures are smaller!
I think these definitely would have been less of a hot mess if I could have drawn them with my left hand (I've suffered a terrible break on my right hand, so it's out of action) and I'm really not used to a striping brush! It flicked out a couple of times on the little finger. It did give thinner lines though! I will definitely be practicing more with it
So there you go. Pretty much a fail! I kind of like them though. I did a fairly decent gradient, and it's the first time I've done actual art with a striping brush (the first time was just playing around) and I think they're kind of cute. Rubbish, but kind of cute!
Remember to check out everyone's (no doubt better) manicures!! I hope no one used my outline idea!
