I'm going to start this post off with a warning: this is going to be picture heavy. This is probably the challenge i have been most excited about.. 3D. Ohh the places that my mind jumped when i saw this.. And where did i settle? 3D dragon nails of course.
Yes, i may have gone a little out there with this one, but i'm so mother fluffing excited to show you it! I'm hoping to swatch the two polishes used on the actual nails (or in this case, claws) to show you guys tomorrow. But for now, i give to you.. my attempt at dragon nails.
*drum roll please*
TAAA DAAAA! ..can you tell i'm excited?
To make the claws i used air drying fimo clay and sculpted them over some false nails. I fixed them on to my real nails with blue tac, as i didn't really want to keep these on for too long! I used a red leather polish from Claire's Accessories and then a cranberry polish by ELF for the claws. For my hand i just used acrylic paints and went mad! I think the way it dried and cracked looks awesome.. i'm a very happy bunny!
What do you think? Is this something you'd like to see more of in the future?
Now only a couple more pictures to go.. I wanted to prove my dragon nails were 'every day friendly' so i cuddled a teddy bear and drank a cup of tea.. just about anyway.
Oh and if you're wondering what it was like to get off, it wasn't actually that difficult. I did however look like a zombie half way through..
So there it is! My dragon claws :) Hope you enjoyed this post as much as i did! Will hopefully swatch the two nail varnishes used and post them in the next few days.
Cya! Becky x
