Fresh Limes...

Today's post was inspired by a blog I love, Original Ego By Cecilia.  Her blog features fashion illustrations that she creates.  Recently she posted some nail art illustrations and I wanted to try and recreate one of the designs.  You can view her post and my inspiration HERE.

To create this mani I started with two coats of NOPI Ladies In The Limelight.  Next I made some half moon shapes and polka dots with OPI Alpine Snow.  To finish the limes I used my dotting tool and Orly Fresh.  It's not perfect because I didn't use tape or any guides but I think it turned out well.  Would you be willing to try something like this?

  11. I always like trying things like this! I hope to see more on your blog! This is an adorable idea and I love experimenting with fruit designs for the summer! And without your suggestions here I would unlikely have looked into these colors used for myself.

    Hope you visit me again soon.

  12. Most of the time, I do nail art partially because it's more fun/interesting, and partially 'cause I just love artsy make-up! This design is so cute and the colors match perfectly ;) Looks really professional... I know it can be super-hard drawing a design free-hand... Phenomenal job!
