Easter eggs for breakfast, crazy 3D nail art
I hope you've all had a lovely Easter weekend! Here are some Easter eggs in their cups, ready to be eaten for breakfast! I know you all love to see how I make these crazy 3D nail art designs so I have a video tutorial as well. Click to see more!
I thought I could do a really cheap version using homemade salt dough but that turned into a distaster. I have it on camera so you'll get to laugh about it some time when I post it. After that, I got me some DAS airdrying clay from the toy store. Kind of a waste since I only needed a few small pieces, but when I have an idea, I can't just let it go. It might come in handy though, for other nail art designs.
I used OPI Alpine Snow for the cup (to make it nice and shiny and cover up the irregularities) as well as the base for the nail art (which was done with acrylic paint and my Basic One Gold detail brush from Christrio Scotland). You see me fixing up the nail with HK Girl top coat and then OPI Matte top coat. Lastly I add some nail foil glue that becomes tacky when it's dry, and then I slide the cup onto my nail and I'm done!
These are just for fun, NOT meant for actual wear. So yes, I know they are super impractical. The video is meant for your (and mine) entertainment and not directly meant as a tutorial (although you're welcome to recreate it if you'd like!).
