This lil bit of nail art is actually from a much larger picture (with a lot more going on) - the idea is part of a painting that I'll finish one day. I've titled this "Little cloud dudes with buckets who like rainbows". I think that about sums it up. They just want to be colourful. Aww..
On day 2 I did the clouds. I used dotting tools and China Glaze Recycle, China Glaze White On White, Essie To Buy Or Not To Buy and OPI My Pointe Exactly (mixtures and layers). I added a bit of OPI Pirouette My Whistle on top for some sparkle.
The rainbow and little bucket carrying cloud dudes are painted using fluid acrylic paints and a tiny brush. They were built up in layers of colour (the rainbow was blocked out in white first). Finally I outlined them in black fluid acrylic paint and gave them their eyes, arms and legs.
I think they're so cute and I smile whenever I look at them. I hope they put a smile on your face too! But if for some reason you need more cuteness, here's a picture of my kitty Delilah smelling a flower while I was outside taking pictures of my nails.
Enjoy and happy Thanksgiving to all of you celebrating!
My lovely friend and fellow lacquerhead Moana from Ooooo Shiny! asked in the comments below if the little cloud dudes had names, to which I replied they all look the same and probably can't even tell eachother apart. So... I was inspired and made a comic. Enjoy! :D
