Poison dart frog nail art

It's Sunday and Lelack's nail art sunday and to day the theme is "Frogs". For those of you who have been following me for awhile, you would know frogs are one of my favorite animals. I love illustrating them with marker pencils, and especially different kind of various poisonous frogs since their colors often are amazing. I've also done two poison dart frog manicures before, so this will be my third. :)

I first made a coral and orange base with CG's Orange You Hot and Flirty Tankini which I sponged together. After that I used my three blue shades and sponged them on diagonally over the nails. I tried making the black spots irregular. At the bottom of the page you'll see the frog of my inspiration if you didn't already knew which one I've been inspired by. ;)





Polishes used:
HM - Blue My Mind
HM - Nail Him
China Glaze - Bahamian Escape
Kleancolor - Black
China Glaze - Orange You Hot
China Glaze -  Flirty Tankini

    2. I would have never come up with idea - I need to be more creative I think ;)
      Feels a bit silly writing in English when we're almost neighbors but I don't know if you would understand Danish, and I only know Swedish from all your crime movies ;D

    3. It wasn't really me that came up with the theme even though I really liked it. It's this "theme-nail-art-sunday that Lelack.blogspot.com hosts. :)

      Yea, I actually thought the same ;) Like "hey, we should understand each other"! :D I think I understand Danish, especially written so you can choose either way. :D

    4. Det lyder da som en rigtig sjov idé med en tema søndag :)
      Og skal vi ikke bare tage den på dansk/svensk fremover - vi forstår sikkert hinanden :D

    5. Ja, jag kan garantera att du får vara med om du vill. Varannan vecka är det fritt val och varannan vecka med tema som Lela bestämmer (står vad på hennes blogg). Jag tycker att det är riktigt kul med temorna för då får man chans att utveckla sig på knasiga teman man annars inte skulle våga sig på. :)
      Och ja, jag tror säkert att vi ska förstå varandra :D
