31 Day Challenge - Day 15 - Delicate

This was a tough one, but once someone suggested it, I knew I had to do it! What could be more delicate than Humpty Dumpty? He was very fragile! Lol
Humpty Dumpty Nail Art
I chose to do Humpty sitting on the brick wall, with an accent thumb nail of a splattered egg.

I wish his clothes had come out a little better, but I was struggling with just how tiny everything was.

Here's how you can re-create them. I started with a base of Zoya Kristen. 2 coats.

Then I taped off the french tips and painted them with Essie Very Structured. 

Outline some brick shapes with Zoya Farah and a tiny nail art brush.

Here I changed my mind on the thumb and removed what I had done and added Zoya Yara instead. (I wanted grass underneath where he splattered. :) White acrylic paint for his body.

More acrylic paint.

Add a thick layer of topcoat like Seche Vite!

Next up is Tribal! That was a tough one too!

  1. Oh, so nice, poor little guy, I can understand why he looks scares and sad... :)

  2. This is great! Really reminds me of the drawings in my children's book of HD! You made me laugh and I am still smiling!

  3. I wish one day I could do this...hahaha really nice dear!! I love the egg *-*

  4. love this! the bricks in a french manicure and so clever and i love the egg splat. i was just reading something that said that nowhere in the humpy dumpty story is it ever mentioned that he is an egg! how weird is that? i never realized, and he is always portrayed as an egg (also the work "ewok" is never said in a star wars movie). this just reminded me of the article. great work, i love it!
