40 Great Nail Art Ideas – Hobbies!

Painted Fingertips | I love nail art

Hi everyone!

Despite the more limited time I have for nails now, I’ve decided to join in on a low-key group linkup. Some ladies are taking part every week but I’ve decided to aim for once every two weeks. Every second friday, you’ll be seeing a different nail art theme and not only will I share my own nails, but there’ll be a linkup at the bottom of the page for you to see more ideas on the theme. Today’s theme was hobbies and for me, that could only go one way. I am barely getting time to do my nails, when would I fit in another hobby at the moment? So, I did nail art about nail art! Painted Fingertips | I love nail art

I’m still struggling with my lighting but hopefully it’ll get sorted out eventually. I promise, these looked better in real life! I knew I wanted to do little polish bottles on my nails and I turned to this post on Will Paint Nails For Food for inspiration. Painted Fingertips | I love nail art

I started with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White and then used very diluted colours to sponge on the background. The background polishes were Tip Top Hap-Pea, OPI Hot & Spicy, and China Glaze Tart-y for the Party. I topped them with a coat of Sinful Colors Opal Glitter, although that hasn’t really come through on the pictures. Painted Fingertips | I love nail art

Next, I used black acrylic paint to outline the bottles and did the lettering on my thumbnail. I filled the 4 bottles with Essence Happy End and Breakthrough, and Sinful Colors Innocent and Fly AwayPainted Fingertips | I love nail art

Aren’t they cute?

    Sorry about your lighting issues – can you manually set the white balance on your camera? Might help balancing the yellow tones.

    The nailpolish bottles came out so well! Really cute.

      I am so frustrated with my camera right now – I can only set the white balance when it’s on auto mode, meaning I can’t have both white balance and close up :-/ I really hope I can find some daylight bulbs soon! Nobody seems to have them here.
