It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is Mythical Creatures. I am so excited for this one – I love fantasy and the mythical creatures that go along with it. I also think I’ve done at least a couple of good nail art looks for this week that I am excited to share with you! For my first look of the week, I went with the first creature I always think of associated with anything fantastical or mythical – the dragon!
I have a few more pictures than usual to share with you today to make sure you really see this dragon in all its glory!
To get this look, I started off with a base of Quixotic Basant. Using acrylic paint, I then freehand painted the dragon. I tried to get it across all of my nails, with a twist of tail on my thumb.
I’m glad it came out as a recognisable dragon! While I thought the dragon’s body left a little something to be desired, I was really happy with the wings.
I suppose they may look better from a short distance, but you’re getting macros anyway!
My favourite wing!
I think Basant was a great base for this, the green provided good contrast against the red, and all of the shimmer made it seem just a little more fiery and magical.
This isn’t the first time I’ve painted a dragon on my nails, although the others have been a little different. I did a dragon eye not once but twice, way back in 2014 I did a proud-looking green dragon, and my Game of Thrones nails included 3 dragon silhouettes. I really liked every one of these nail art looks – perhaps because they’re dragon themed! Let me know which dragony style you liked best.
I can’t wait to see what the other Digital Dozen members have come up with for this theme! I think it’s a great theme – and besides, I still need another idea for later this week! What is your favourite mythical creature?
