How do you do the artwork?
With tiny brushes! All my nail art is hand painted unless otherwise stated. And no I don't use a magnifying glass, My eyes are not that bad yet ;)!
How long does it take to do the nail art?
Most designs take under an hour for a full set, but speed comes with practice.
When you are creating a design from scratch it can take a while to get the right look. When you have done it properly once it's easy from there!
Can I use your nail art?
You can interpret any of my designs in your own way and I would love to see what I have inspired, but do not claim that my work is your own (re-distributing photographs of my work under your own title).
Do you have any tips for aspiring artists?
1) Get the right tools for the job!
There's few things quite as infuriating as having a clear picture and the skill to create artwork but having the wrong tools for the job!
It is not expensive to get fine tipped brushes from an art or hobby shop, beauty suppliers will stock them too, also there are plenty of brushes available on eBay but I would be very careful about the quality!
Trust me: once you find that favourite brush that can deliver a neat line it will always be within reach!!
2) PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!!
I cannot stress this enough, it is easy to want to give up but sometimes you just need a little break. Try and watch some tutorials and copy them as they go, do not expect perfect results first, second or even third time round!
3) Creating your designs.
If you have straight out copied someone else's design acknowledge that fact and tag or link them to it. If you have copied a painting or drawing then include the original's name somewhere in your title or description.
For on-trend looks get a fashion magazine or clothing catalogue and see what types of print they are using on the fabric. Try to re-create these patterns and put your own spin on it. Wallpaper is great for inspiration too!
