Hello lovelies! I have a quick nail art post for you tonight that is celebrating my aunt's birthday. I haven't gotten to see my aunt for several years and I wanted to do something special so she would know I'm thinking of her, not just today, but every day. She got a new purse for her birthday and I decided to do an abstract take on that design as my mani inspiration.
I didn't start this mani until after I got off of work today so I knew I wouldn't have time to recreate it perfectly, so I decided to do a loose interpretation of it instead! It's been so long since I got to sit down and do freehand nail art and this showed me how much I miss it... and how rusty I've gotten! Definitely not my best work, but I am pleased overall. First, a look at my inspiration.
I originally had a much lighter base (to match the lighter spots in the purse) but blended with darker colors to create the same look as the background of the purse. Unfortunately most of my light spots ended up completely covered so my base looks much darker than what it was originally.
