The Nail Challenge Collaborative: Tea Party - Week 2

Hello lovelies!

I'm super excited for today's nails so I'm just going to get into the post!

Onto the nails,

And this is why I was so excited for this month's Nail Challenge Collaborative theme. Look at how cute these nails are!

Here's what I used:

Today's "tea party" nails were inspired by this pattern. I love how cute this pattern is and the colors are unique.

These nails began with 1 coat of Luxe Lacquers's Chantal and a layer of HK Girl. I then started free handing on the pattern with the colors I mixed from the acrylic paints above. For me, I find it easier to start with the biggest object on each nail and then fill in around it with the smaller details. Everything was sealed in with another layer of HK Girl.

Gah, I love how cute these turned out! I really wish I had that fancy teacup to drink my tea out of haha. I still need to paint two more manicures for this month's challenge but I like this month's theme so I'm excited!

Thanks for reading guys!
