Happy Friday! Only three more work days (after today) until vacation! Since I will be gone the latter half of next week, I will actually be posting next week's WNAC mani mid-week, and then it will go on Instagram on Friday, as usual. Today, I have this week's prompt, which is turquoise.
I finally broke down last week and bought acrylic paints. For no real reason, I had been determined for so long to be polish-only, but I really love some of the looks that can be created with acrylic paint. So I decided to pick up black and white and try them out for my ikat design to see if I liked them. And let me just say, I think it was a success!
For this mani, I started with a base of Aliquid Lacquer Puppy Love, which was a special release polish in the fall with a portion of the proceeds going to the ASPCA. I love this polish, and it certainly doesn't get used enough. After applying topcoat, I then added the white blobs using acrylic paint. Once dry, I added Zoya Wednesday on top and then added the black using more acrylic paint.
This mani was so easy to do! I absolutely love working with acrylic paints - they dried quickly and don't build up a thickness on the nail. So be sure to expect more freehand nail art using the paints in the future! Overall, I am very pleased with the way this turned out and have been bursting at the seams to share it with you. Hope everyone has a great weekend and Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!
