rainbow wedding nails

a colleague's getting married tomorrow asked me to do her nails. i decided to make her some nail tips instead, so that they can be a keepsake.

these are held onto the sponge using some bluetack.

i fitted the nails to the colleague's fingers and clipped them to a nice length. she has a long nail bed to start with so i didn't make the tip very long. i filed them down and shaped them before applying the base color. this is 3 coats of Rainbow #31, a blue base sheerish pink.

the clouds and rainbow were drawn with acrylic paint, the puffy clouds were makde with nail acrylic powder.

swarovski ab crystals to make the smile line.

one last look.
