Drawing is definitely not my forte despite taking lessons for a few years when I was still a little girl. That is why I really envy my brother, who is able to draw the Simpsons very well, and my baby sis (who is drawing some of the doodling arts in our “Laugh With Us” category).
With my sister now doing a contractual job at a bank while I do the setting up our online shop (I’ve stopped working with those lovable students of mine due to the relapses of my backaches :(), she has very little time to draw.
Actually, I am a fan of her doodling arts ever since she started drawing all those funny characters inside her notebooks and erhhmm….lecture notes. They never fail to make me laugh.
I wanted to read more of her works, but I guess just my liking isn’t enough 😦.
HOWEVER..if you’ve already read our “Laugh With Us” posts (it is just a click away, sweeties!!) and think they are worth reading, do leave down your likes and comments so that she is motivated to draw more.
Without further adieu, here’s the result of my first piece of work:
The top nail (ya…drawn by yours truly) was done with colour pencils and markers.
Actual nail polish were applied to the one at the bottom with the fimo slices and rhinestones placed only after the colours are dried so that I can reuse them hehe…
The colours used : Jet Black, Mustard Yellow, Blue & Silver Glitter
Art Decor used: 3 butterfly fimo & Black rhinestones
With this, I can create as many designs as I want to without using any top coat (yes, I’ve yet to buy them…) and best of all, I don’t have to remove them.
I’ve just purchased some acrylic nails and nail polish brushes/dotting tools so that I can try out all my paper designs on the nails.
Oh~ can’t wait for them to arrive. 😀
Hope you do enjoy this humble post of ours.
Cheers & TTFN~ 😀
