Cute piglet nail art

How to make "Piglet" with acrylic l&p and paint *l&p=liquid and powder*

As I was bathing my two kids, I took a washcloth from the shelf and looked at it, and I had the bright idea to make it into a nail art design.

So first, take any pink acrylic colored powder that you have that comes close to Piglet's body and start forming your free edge.
I used a neon pink powder and a neon glitter that I mixed with clear powder.
The one on the left is the neon pink powder, and the one on the right is the neon glitter.

Then encapsulate with clear acrylic, and when that is fully dry, file and buff your nail to the desired shape.
With black acrylic paint and a dotting tool, I formed Piglet's eyes, eyebrows and mouth.
With China Glaze's "Pool Party" I made his little cheecks.

Then I mixed a purple acrylic paint with white, to make lighter shade of purple for the stripes on Piglet's belly.
I let that dry completely and put a coat of NSI Glaze 'n Go on it and let it cure for about 2-3 minutes.

Next time I'll try and remember to take pictures in between so I can give you a better step by step, but I think you know what I'm talking about when you see the video.

3D acrylic skull nail design

I was messing around, and sketching some designs out on paper
(Most of the time I sketch it out on paper to see if it is possible to do with acrylic, or if it is going to look nice or not)
So one thing lead to another... I was drawing pumpkins, and for the pumpkins I needed faces, so from one face to another I was doing a skull-like face, and then BAM, bright idea to do a girly skull!

I was never so excited before to do 3D nails.
While I was working on it I kept saying : omg! look at that, how cute, this is going to be so adorable!
My husband rolled his eyes everytime I said something. LOL

I felt like a little girl

To me these are the cutest nail I've ever done (at the moment lol)

So here it is!!
 Sorry they are upside down, but don't know how to fix it on this blog :/

So first I Sculpted the nailbed (reverse method), then I used a hot pink/neon pink glitter (mixed with clear powder) for the free edge.
I encapsulated it with clear powder.
Once it was fully dry, I filed and buffed the nail.

Then with purple I started sculping the heart, then filling up the heart with a purple glitter, just because I thought it was prettier.
Then with white acrylic,I started sculpting the skull, first a ball for the head, then 3 tiny balls for the 'teeth'.
With a very tiny brush (no.2) I did the bones.

With a dotting tool and black acrylic paint, I painted on the eyes, one larger than the other, and the nose.
Once that was dry I took my favorite topcoat, and gave it a couple of layers to make it shiny
I used ORLY glosser. <3 that one!

So here goes the video!

Halloween nail art

Since "everybody" is doing this, guess I'll do it too.

I really wish we had Halloween over here. Well at least trick or treating.
But in february or march we have "Karnaval" over here and that is when we are going "trick or treating", it is not the same, but we "sing" for candy as well. And the cool part is: we also get to dress up, yaaaaay!

So here we go with the nails

 Cute Halloween nails, but yet very Halloween-ish

 These are my Halloween nails, a yellow and orange glitter mix with irridescant stars, with cute whote acrylic bows.

I hope you guys all have a great Halloween and lots of fun!
And be safe!
