NOTD - High on Pink Tie Dye

Hi! Right now I'm wearing these pink sort-of-tie-dye nails I did for a big family reunion (which means to me a lot of people to see my nails, obviously :D) we had this weekend. For a long time I didn't know what kind of design to do. I knew what I was gonna wear, white girly dress, pink-red sweater if it gets colder and pink accessories, so my nails had to be pink. I don't wear pink nails very often and I don't even own many pink-red polish bottles, I'm much more into blues. It hit me Wednesday evening: when I was doing High on Nails design about two weeks ago, that came to my mind through tie dye, originally I imagined something like today's design.

It ended up better than I imagined, quite decent but still interesting, it matched my outfit perfectly and I received a lot of comments on them. But if someone asks how long they took I'm going to lie. I would go crazy if I was to paint both hands in a row, I did my left hand one day's evening and the right another day's afternoon.

This design was something for my artist's soul - two brushes, acrylics and white (Gabriella Salvete 148) surface to be painted. (When I paint big, I like doing landscapes and space, I suck at portraits.)

Right hand turn out less precise but still pretty precise:

The title refers to the High on Nails post as mentioned above and I feel about these almost the same, when it comes to being high and staring at them.

...and you should probably see what I was matching my nails to.

As a top coat I used Essence BTGN Top Sealer.
I like these so much I don't want to take them off but at the same time I really want to paint something new. Never ending problem of a nail artist, right?

[Note: I have a tutorial for this now.]
