Today, 11th theme is Sea Shells <3
First I felt like I can use crushed shell chips, but then thought it’s not that unique and interesting…it’s just a material, not “theme” or “art” at all. And then I saw some silhouette images of sea shells and sea shore animals which looked pretty good for me, so I decided to paint them on my nail…

I’m happy for final result with white silhouette arts, but much more happier for the base color. Combination of shimmery glass fleck blue and blue flaky are very beautiful even on the photo but it pops up as a miracle IRL!! This is my new favorite summer color, it really fits to happy summer beach <3

So how about other’s Sea-Shells inspired nail? For sure they are great ;)

さて夏チャレ11日目、お題は「貝殻」!……ってところで安直にシェル使うことを決めかけた自分を殴り倒したいところです。まあさすがにそれは安直過ぎないか、という脳内会議が繰り広げられた結果満場一致で却下という方向に動いた結果が本日の爪で御座いますけれども。
さてこの感じ何処かで見たことあるなー?と思った方は大正解で御座います、元ネタは
こちらのシール。とはいえ当然シール買うことなぞできないので頑張ってアクリルでぺたぺたしてみました。しかしいつもながら全く顔料が足りていないこちらのアクリル絵の具に最早発狂寸前で御座います。とはいえ新しいのを買う暇、正確にはきっちり 選 ん で 買う暇なんてものは今の私には無い!!(´;ω;`)ということで今月はもうこれで通します。使えなさ過ぎて泣くしかありませんが!orz
俺……このチャレンジが終わったらアクリルガッシュ買うんだ……<死亡フラグ

  1. I really like your manicure, you did it so good. For me sea shells were not very easy to draw.

      It was not so easy for me too, that's why I went for "simplified" shells :D

  2. Very pretty mani! The blue base looks awesome... like sparkling seawater? blue+flakies is always a winner in my opinion. At first, I thought you stamped the shapes! Very nice job!

      It's already a bit too long for me, my best length is few mm shorter, but you know, longer is much easier for the art ;)

  5. You freehanded these shapes?? They look so much like stamping, you must have a really steady hand! I love this mani, great job :]

    1. Yep I did! :D If you see carefully, you can see some unusual smudges which never comes out by stamping; and I'm VERY bad on stamping, freehand was easier for me!
      Anyway thanks :)
