Hi everyone! It’s time for the next prompt in the #PPSAnailchallenge 🙂 This entire month all my nail posts will be for the Polished Pretties South Africa Nail Challenge. Polished Pretties South Africa is a Facebook group started by the Nail Anarchy ladies and we decided to do a month long challenge and open it up to everyone. You don’t have to be a member of the group to participate, but if you have a love for polish, why not join our group anyway? The challenge is also not compulsory for group members. It’s all just for fun 🙂 Here are all the prompts and the dates:This prompt had me proper stumped. I don’t like villains. I like the heroes! Or even the anti-hero. The underdog. Everyone but the villain! I had a good think about what I could do and with the passing of Sir Christopher Lee one of my favourite books/movies was in the forefront of my mind. I decided I would try to paint the eye of Sauron. Here is how it came out:I started off with an L.A. girl base coat to protect my nails. I painted 2 coats of Tip Top Black Forest on all of my nails. I used a nail art brush with red, yellow and orange acrylic paint to create the eye. I sealed it all in with a coat of Seche Vite. Here is the picture I was working from:
I was absolutely over the moon with how these turned out! I think it is safe to say that this is my favourite nail art to date. I really had no confidence in my ability to freehand this, but I surprised myself and I’m so very glad I attempted it! With the picture for guidance it was actually fairly easy. What you see is my first attempt. I didn’t take off or redo anything. So many people tell me they can’t possibly do nail art and I always tell them that they don’t know until they try. I really should follow my own advice.
I would love to hear what you think of this in the comments below 🙂 Don’t forget to check out what everyone else did in the inlinkz 🙂
