Hi Friends, as you might be aware that I am participtaing in the STNChallenges by Anita who herself is a great artist. God, the challenge is making push by limits and break my bones :P . But I am glad that it is really keeping me on my toes for this month.

I would have survived by taking inspiratin from any of wonderful nail arts by lovely artists around, but over ambitious as I am, I chose a design that I now think was out of my league. Stupid Me!! And obviously when the long back breaking nail art was complete I was dissappointed in my self. And not to forget as if doing it was not enough on one hand I again tried it on both hands, which made the job double difficult. But that's the way I feel satisfied so be it. Anyways my fellow nail art friends were very supportive and encouraged me through out. Its great to have such positive energy around :).

I took inspiration from the great Jaunty Juli . I saw this design on IG a few months back and had been wanting to do them since then. The challenge was a perfect opportunity to do so :). The nail art is goorgeous no doubt, but it is lengthy na d complicated too. But her video onyoutube made it look so easy, that I fell for it.

This is how I think I did my Nail Art (Again a series of steps, make me forget what I began with :P ):

  1. Painted my nails white and let it dry.

  2. Taped the tip of the nails, so that I could later paint them tan color.

  3. Sponged it with Maybelline Colorshow Shocking Seas and Hooked on Pink. (I think I should have picked up lighter colors).

  4. Removed the tape and painted the tip in Tan Color, I used Envy Laminate.

  5. Used brown acrylic paint to dot the Tan Tip part

  6. Made colors using acrylic paints just a shade lighter than the nail polish sponged on my nails, which is light pink, purple and light blue. 

  7. Started with pink dots, used purple where gradient of pink and blue met each other and then light blue over the blue part.

  8. Made a mint color using Turqiouse color, lime green and white acrylic paints to draw the palm leaves.

  9. Highlighted the tip of Palm Leaves with Lime green Acrylic Paints.

  10. Made a lighter shade of mint green prepared earlier to draw stripes over palm to get texture feel.

  11. Using brown acrylic paint draw trunk for the palm tree and striped it with black.

  12. Took a chrome yellow acrylic paint to draw the sun and dotted it with ornage.

  13. Drew a boat with light blue and mast with light yellow acrylic paint.

  14. Used a lighter blue and lighter yellow to stripe the boat and mast.

  15. Now, the tricky part (as if the all the above steps were not tricky and tiring enough :P ), outlining the palm tree, sun and boat with black acrylic paint. Also partition the tan painted tip of the nail with black stripe.

  16. Now, finally put a top coat and seal your design.

Inspiration from Jaunty Juli Nail Art

I would not say this was the toughtest design I drew but it was lenghty. The short tutorial itself seems like a lenghty essay :P . Jainty Juli has made it so effortlessly and flawlessly and look at me :( . Really, hats off for her work.
