Wow, that was a catchy post title eh? Lol. Today I am doubling up, with my final post of the DD's New & Improved week, as well as nail art for Things That Fly, this week's 40 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge.
Today the 2 are united by .... decals. Ever since I saw the Things That Fly prompt, I've wanted to use this super cute bumblebee design from UberChic. I'm also obsessed with the notion that logically, there is no way a bumblebee SHOULD be able to fly, and yet it can. Oh, and I love their lovely dumpling shape!
This mani is also a bit more evolved than my usual nail art, bringing it back to the Improved element. I have 3 nails stamped with flowers, and 2 bumblebee nails.
For the garden, I did a base coat of Literary Lacquers Phizzwizard, a great pale green holo, stamped it with these super cute daisies from UberChic 5-01 and dotted their centres with OPI Hot & Spicy, Planks a Lot and Jessica Ocean Bloom. I liked those nails a lot.
My bumblebees are from the same UberChic plate, and I coloured my decals in with OPI The It Color. I got some smudginess from the bees' faces, but other than that, did better with my decals than before - mainly, I think, because I cut them to size before applying them to my nails. (Over Barry M Huckleberry).
That's it for this week - I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen from us, and maybe it's inspired you to try something new or give something another go. Have a great weekend.
