Hey guys! Back today with post (or day) 5 of Lindsey from the Neverland Nail Blog's summer fun nail art challenge. Day 5 is "are we there yet" so road trip or vacation mani. I had planned to do some map type thing with Route 66, but then I changed my mind, big surprise there huh?! :P
My monkey butt's (Brendan) 2nd birthday party was pirate themed, so I had actually come up with this idea back for his party but didn't have time to do it, due to the fact that I was hosting his party. So now is the perfect time!!
There is a little bit of a back story to get you in the mood ;) You and your partner go on a vacation alone to the beautiful beaches of Maui, while you are building a sand castle, you come across an old tattered piece of paper, and this is what you find!
I used Zoya Shay as a base color then I sponged on Nubar Spark and Sinful Colors Mercury Rising around the edges to get the old paper feel. I used a dotting tool and a skinny nail art brush to freehand the skull and crossbones on my thumb with black, then did the eyes, nose and mouth with Zoya Shay again to match the background. I used OPI The Color of Minnie to do the dotted line and X, and the the SC again for the trunk of the palm tree, and the green is in this little nail art pen thing my mom gave me.
What do you guys think?
Until next time! Happy painting!
