Patterned Paisley Nail Art

Hello everyone! I'm super duper excited to share these nails with you! I'm absolutely in love with them! They took me forever and a year to do, okay not really... but they did take a while! I think the time I spent on them definitely payed off though! It's going to be painful to take these off.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, these are hand painted. No stamping plates or stickers were used here! Just good old brushes, a steady hand, and a lot of patience. Wait.. I have patience?

I was inspired by THIS photo and I just completely fell in love with it. I knew it would be hard, but it would look great as some nail art, so I grabbed a ton of polishes and some brushes, then starting painting away.

The white base polish I used is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On. The rest of the polishes I used for the paisley patterns were from China Glaze. I used Starboard, Entourage, Sunday Funday, First Mate, Dance Baby, Happy Go Lucky, Spontaneous, Papaya Punch, and Passion For Petals. Phew! Quite a few. And as always I used Out The Door top coat.

Are you all in love with these as much as I am? I wish nail polish would last forever. Like I said... This is going to be painful to remove. I may have a breakdown. Good thing I took pictures! Right?

I made a short little tutorial by speeding up the process of me painting one nail. It would have been ridiculously hard to do a tutorial and show me doing every single nail. You can check out that video below!
