Nineteen With Nail Tatz

Since I created this nail set, I've been desperate to try something similar on my own nails but I was very doubtful about whether I'd be able to paint such intricate details using my left hand. And omg I actually did it. By no means am I ambidextrous but wow, I completely surprised myself. 
I'll definitely be doing this kind of thing again with different words and colours. It's such a cool twist on knuckle tatz without the whole lifelong commitment thing!




The base colour is Models Own Utopia
I used black acrylic paint for all the detail with a nail art brush.
On the thumbs I used W7 Cosmic Mauve (glitter) on the tips.
All coated with a few top coats of NYC.

  6. Freaking cool this design! If I'd be any good at free handing I'd copy but.. it would probably be unreadable.
