Delicate Freehand Nail Art

Painted Fingertips | Delicate freehand nail art over mint

Hi everyone!

Today’s nail art was one of the first nail looks I did after moving to the US. My husband wasn’t here yet and I spent an evening doing this delicate freehand. Originally I intended to add this to the 31 Day Challenge as my delicate print, but I just didn’t get a chance for photo editing and posting amidst all the craziness. Not to worry, now we have some pretty nails to look at today instead! Painted Fingertips | Delicate freehand nail art over mintI started with a base of an unnamed mint polish from Vixen. On top of this, I just used acrylic paint and my finest brush and had fun making patterns. Painted Fingertips | Delicate freehand nail art over mint

One thing I need to get again is a matte top coat! Mine was almost finished so I didn’t bring it with. Using a matte top coat under your acrylic just makes it go where you want it so much more easily. This still went pretty well though! Painted Fingertips | Delicate freehand nail art over mint

I always enjoy painting patterns like these, so I hope you like them too!

    Thanks for the tip about the matte top coat under acrylic paint! I bought a white paint aaaages ago and I have yet to use it but now I know what to do! The nail art is beautiful, a night well spent 😉

    Wonderful. I know how hard is to paint such delicate patterns and I agree, on matte, the acrylic paint goes much smoother on. It came out great dear!
