Hey Nailistas! The Digit-al Dozen Nail Art Challenge Week is again upon us. This month’s theme is “art” well technically it’s The Digit-al Dozen Re-Does Art because we did this one a few years back too. So many amazing designs came from that challenge that we just had to do it again.
My Day 1 design was inspired by the avatar of one of my favorite youtubers, Omegon. He is a Cthulhu overlord that does mostly commentary videos on PC Culture. His channel art was created by the amazing artist MsShadowPaint. ~ If you’re not familiar with the word cthulhu, it’s basically a fictional octopus face character that has been seen in many games and originated in an HP Lovecraft story. ~ And it looks pretty awesome on mah nails!
I did these all freehand with acrylic paints. Only the red base is polish — Zoya Posh (matte velvet). There is a “Watch Me Paint” video on my youtube channel if you’d like to check it out.. I call it watch me paint rather than tutorial as it’s just me painting, there’s no step by step to it really..
I had a lot of fun making these. It’s been too long since I did an All freehand design. Yeah there are a few spots I could’ve done better probably but I love the way they turned out, especially the abstract-y-ness of the tentacles…yes I just made up that word. 🙂
Make sure to visit the rest of the Digit-al Dozen girls to see what they did for Day 1 of Art Week in the InLinkz below.
