Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Turns Five: Celebrate with Balloons!

by - Wednesday, September 13, 2017

My next look for DD's 5th Birthday is some freehanded balloons - originally I thought about doing a bunch of different colours but when it came time to do it I decided to go with a more elegant gold and silver theme!

My base is Julep Something Blue (a one-coater!) and then I freehanded my balloons with gold and silver acrylic paint, and then added my outlines and the shine in the balloons with some black and white and a detail brush. :)

I thought about making this look matte (as I always find freehand looks better when I mattify it) but I decided to leave it glossy to add some extra shine to my balloons. Not sure if that was the right call though, hmm... What do you think?
