This nail design is inspired by a toilet bag, that I just bought.. I've seen it a couple of times and really admired all the characters on it.. Last time I took pics of it with the intention of doing nail art inspired by it.. But I decided to buy it.. I'm not sure I'm ever going to use it as a toilet bag, but it is a rich source of inspiration :)
Cute right? It's really environmental/recycle-ish.. I wonder if there is a cartoon or series of product with these characters on it.. Anyone of you know? Have you seen them before somewhere?
/Edit\ I now know these are called Tokidoki! yay.. /Endofedit\
For some reason still unkown to me I took step-by-step photos.. So you get a tutorial :) I don't know if you can use, but now it's here :)
First a pic of the finished nails (the day after, so a bit of tipwear)
The pics are taken in the evening under artificial light, so my hands are a bit lobster-ish and scary.. just so you're warned.. And I have a lot of stray hairs here and there..
First, three different greens :) Mmmm, greeeeeen..
I don't really know what I'm going to say, so I'm jsut going to let the pics talk..
And then topcoat :)
If you have any queations about any of the steps, just ask :)
And here's the nails together with each of the inspiration sources:
I looove these nails :) So colorful and happy :D I'm looking forward to do some more nail art inspired by the toilet bag :)
The polishes I used:
See that polish with OH MY GOSH on it? New Gosh polishes, that I'm going to tell you a tiny bit about in next post :) This post is already loong enough.
[Speaking of inspiration.. Don't forget my Nail Art Contest: Get Inspired!]
