Nail of the day – Lilo & Stitch nails.
Did you ever have something on your nails that made smile every time you see them? It could be your very first gradient, an amazing holo or a rare indie polish, but I bet you know that feeling, right?
Today I am showing you a manicure that has made me smile all day now for several reasons. First of all because this is my first manicure using acrylic paint instead of ink, and it’s turned out quite well I think. And second of all because it’s of one of my favorite cartoon characters ever, Stitch!
I may be in my thirties but man, I absolutely love the Disney movie Lilo & Stitch and I’m not to afraid to admit that, it’s just such an adorable movie and if it were in any way possible I’d have a Stitch as a pet!
So when I read that Taylor of Nailed to the T was going to do this Disney Nail art contest to celebrate her blog turning 1 year old and her daughter’s birthday who is turning 4 this month, I couldn’t help but participate and try to recreate my favorite cartoon characters on my nails! Happy Blog Birthday Taylor and Happy Birthday to your adorable little A, I hope she likes these nails!
May I VERY proudly present, Lilo, Stitch and her doll Scrump:
Aren’t they adorable?! I’m so in love with these I keep looking at them and smiling!
By the way, for those of you who haven’t tried painting with Acrylic paint on your nails, you should totally give it a shot! It’s easier than it looks! You just have to understand the basics of painting and have a very small brush. As for the painting, you should start with the base and filling it in with the highlights and use the dark colors last . Also Acrylic paint is easy to correct. If you do something wrong and you’re in the beginning stages still you can wipe it off. And if you are in the end stages you can always paint over your mistake. It really is that simple. By the way, I used this set of Oumaxi acrylic paint that I ordered off of eBay a while ago and they’re a dream to work with. Perfect consistency and beautiful colors. I highly recommend these!
The brush I also got off of eBay, I think I used the middle length of this set.
