Musical...nails? :)

Hi ladies! While watching a Hong Kong drama, I was inspired by the protagonist's cello playing and decided to go about creating some musical nails! I turned to the world wide web for some music images and came across this image so I decided to try and translate it onto my nails.

I started off with two coats of Australis Blackmail. For my index and pinky, I layered two coats of Australis Speck-tacular. I imagine the flakey to be sound waves, each colour representing a different pitch. Oh I do think I'm becoming quite the artist! *ahem* ;)

I stamped the piano image from plate CK-05 (which can be found from Born Pretty Store) on my ring and thumb, before dabbing on more Speck-tacular on the free black areas. For my middle finger, I used white acrylic paint to draw the musical notations before going over it in colours to match the flakey nails.

(don't mind the thumb, I got a little too happy with the brush and remover)

Despite the wobbly nail art (I was becoming quite hungry by the time I got to that stage!), I quite like this manicure. And hey, practice makes perfect, yes? I'm planning on doing as much free hand nail art as possibly during my break! :)

What do you think of these nails?

Thanks for reading.
