I told y'all I got some new nail goodies and I'm gonna tell you what I got. Acrylic paints, brushes and water soluble ink. I'm a super fan! Well maybe not the ink so far, it's a little harder to work with than I thought so far. The reason for the ink and what am I doin with it? Stamping! Think how much easier it would be if you could just wipe off a messed up or misplaced stamp with water than it is with remover. Soooo much easier! It's not as opaque as I wanted but it's still a learning process. Anywho, the paints. Both harder and easier than I thought they would be. For this mani I used white acrylic paint with a little bit of pink water soluble ink (cuz how did I seriously not buy pink acrylic paint?!). But anywho, I used black acrylic paint for my tips. Harder than I thought as far as that goes but easier to do the ribbons than I thought.
Here's a terrible pic (sorry old camera) of just the tips. Acrylic paint dries matte and it looked pretty cool.
That's it for this post, it feels great to be back though! I can't wait to play some more with my paints and such. AND it's getting closer to Halloween, yay! Can't wait to try some of my fun holiday stamps :D
As always, thanks for stopping by :)
