Okay, so after I had the gradient plain on my nails for a day, I just couldn't leave well enough alone and (even though my thumb was chipped) I decided to get out my black striper.
I saw a wonderful tutorial where you can make your own decals, which means you can have perfect patterns on your drawing hand too! I wanted to give it a try, so I made this love one first.
I think it's worked well, but now I need to get my decals looking good - would you want a tutorial on these? Maybe I'll do one when I practice a bit more :)
On the other nails I just drew straight onto the nail.
I've been drawing hearts almost all my life, being a girl and hearts being so simple to draw...
I think with the birds and dolphin, I took the idea of the background being a sea-theme and just drew.
So what do you think? Is plain better or with details?
I always like patterns now... even gradients are too plain for me :P
Love love and naillove!!
