Painted Fingertips | Secret Garden nails

Hi everyone!

Today I have tried something totally new to me. I not only painted my nails, I also painted under my nails! For a good reason though, just keep reading to see what I came up with 🙂Painted Fingertips | Secret Garden nailsAbout a year ago, LadyCrappo posted these nails. They were hugely popular, and for good reason! As I was thinking about what movie I could use for this prompt, I remembered her idea and decided to do my own version. The movie is The Secret Garden. It’s a children’s movie, but if you never saw it, you should!

I used acrylic paint to outline the stones. Then I climbed over the wall…Painted Fingertips | Secret Garden nailsAnd into the garden, which I did with acrylic paint. I just loved this idea, even if it’s not the most practical, it’s just so cool!

In previous years, I did Finding Nemo nails and Rango nails. I’m not even going to try to pick a favourite out of these three. All 3 were awesome looks that I worked really hard on. I think my Rango nails were the hardest to do so I was very proud of them BUT I was also really proud of my Nemo nails at the time and the Secret Garden nails are just such a cool idea! Can you pick a favourite?
