Happy Nail Art Day!
Over the weekend, as I was looking at my nature inspired nails (click HERE to see the previous design), I was again inspired to do another nail art related to things I see in the garden! Well I don't actually see a lot of bees in person and there's only 1 bee I saw in our garden decades ago! In my dreams though, my garden will have butterflies, gorgeous colorful flowers, and just ONE bee! One because I'm scared of the sting! I'll probably just take care of 1 or 2 just in case the 1 gets lonely!
I know! I'm blabbering non-stop! The point is..I've done butterflies and I don't plan to do "caterpillar" or any "worm related" nail art! So next cutest thing would be Bees! Think about our local fast food chain Jollibee! :) That's why I call it the JOLLY BEE!
Step 2:Once the base color is completely dry, let's go back to gradient nail art steps and used an OPI Dress to Empress or any reddish orange polish with a patting motion using a sponge concentrating at the middle portion of your nail.
Step 3:Once you're done with step 2, proceed with the third color which is called OPI Electric Eel. Or much better, you can go for true green polish as "leaves", I don't have a good green polish so I settled on this!
Step 4:With a brighter colored yellow polish, I dropped an inverted 'almost teardrop' shape in the middle of the nails. Looks weird for now but you'll understand what's the point of this as read on.
Step 5:Making sure the yellow inverted teardrop is completely dry, draw 3 lines on it with L.A. Colors Art Deco in black. This will be the body of the bee! Yes, you read it right, body of the bee! Not yellow carrots! :P
Using a White 2 Way Nail Art Pen, drop 4 dots beside the "body of the bee".
Do not forget to drop 2 tiny dots on top of the body for the eyes too!
With a needle, extend one end like how we do on creating flowers. This will be the wings!
Step 7:With a Black 2 Way Nail Art Pen, draw the "eyes" of the bee!
And to make the most distinct feature of a bee, use the same black 2 Way Nail Art Pen to create it's "behind"! Do not forget the sharp, pointed "butt" :P
Step 8: OptionalBecause I was born to be "glamorosa", I applied more glitters on the tip of my nails with Chic Gold Glitter polish.
Step 9:Rest for a bit, stretch your legs and arms and when you are 101% sure that the nail art designs are completely dry, apply your favorite top coat! I am using ZOYA Anchor Top Coat.
Let' the BUZZ-ing begin!!! :)
I am hoping my nail art design for the week could at least put a huge smile on your face! Come on...show me some teeth :D
Happy Humpy Wednesday!
