I follow this gal on Twitter called @TheGalDownUnder and I’m not sure where she got this but it is too funny!
Ok because it is a nail blog, here is some art for you!
#31nails2014 Jan 14 HOME TOWN INSPIRED. My home town is on Vancouver Island, BC Canada, right on the ocean, where there are lots of large green trees! I also used some inspiration from Neiru as well. A Japanese Nail Art teaching site. Go to https://neiru.me for more info.
This time the class is based on doing extra fine line work concentrating on your “linesman ship” and to help you build confidence!
If you signed up and viewed the time sensitive video, you know the technique. And if you missed it here is a picture of my “fine lines workshop” finished product. This work is done with gel color. (Mine is done with OPI Gel Colors)
It was very interesting and fun to do this fine line technique!
The other part of the challenge was to take the technique and do your own thing! Taking what you learned from the online class and adding your own touch/style!
So here is my own thang!!!
This kind of reminds me of stained glass work!
If you love nail art and new techniques, you need to check out Neiru. You can also purchase online lessons from Neiru for as little as $25 a month! A great way to keep the creative juices flowing!
So , of course I signed up and they got to 500 followers very quickly. I was eager to learn the new techniques.
Here is my creation from the lesson that she gave!
lesson #1 from Neiru done by Seriously Nails
I also learned a couple of tricks from the lesson as well. There are a few different layers to this nail art. Starting with a base of color, adding blocks of color, creating the flowers, adding dimension with the white and then some glitz with the gold foil!
Fun and very interesting! Of course, I see things that I did that could be done better next time. Practice makes perfect right! I hope you enjoy them.
Keep a look out for more Japanese inspired nail art. This is a two week online FREE class!
