My name is Marisa and I blog over at Hey, Darling Polish! My blog is made up of mostly bright and quirky nail art with some indie polish swatches thrown in the mix. I saw that Katherine was looking for some guest posters while she deals with real life now and I love being to help people out, so here I am writing a post for you guys!
Let's get to the nails!
Here's what I used:
Today's nails are kind of special because I decided to recreate a pattern that Katherine painted a while back that she said I inspired her to try. I think that my favorite part of blogging is getting to interact with others who also love nail polish and I'm always sort of taken back when someone says that I inspired them. So, these nails are for you Katherine! I remember that I was so happy when I read her post and looking at it now, I'm still smiling (:
These nails started with two coats of Natty and a layer of Glossy Glam. When that had dried, I used my orange acrylic paint and detail brush to paint on the octopus. I then went back in with my black paint to add the smaller details. Everything was cleaned up and sealed in with another layer of Glossy Glam.
I thought these nails were so fun and a lot of my classmates liked my little "octopus friends" haha. Thank you Katherine for finally motivating me to try painting this pattern and allowing me to guest post for you!
From Katherine: I love these so much and the sentiment behind them was so sweet! Marisa always inspires me to think of gorgeous freehand patterns since she does them so well, even if I don't do them as often as I would like to. Thank you so much, Marisa! This post means a lot to me. :) If you're looking for inspiration and lovely nails make sure to check out Hey, Darling Polish! on facebook, instagram and twitter!
