When I was little, I used to watch “I dream of Jeannie” all the time, but it is only until now that I’ve had the pleasure of binging the entire show (I’m on season 3 right now). I absolutely loved the character and loved the chemistry between Tony and Jeannie.
I do agree with Larry Hagman (Major Anthony Nelson), Barbara Eden (Jeannie) and Bill Daily (Major Roger Healey) that marrying Tony and Jeannie killed the series but I still enjoy it very dearly. It is why I had to recreate some of the intro images on my nails.
It all started like this:
And then I remembered I saw a design with two colors and a black line striking through. The only difference is that the colors where not gradiented, they were separated by the black line itself, so I decided to try this out!
YAY! Today is my birthday and of course I had to have special nails for today.
I wanted to have something summer themed and what a better summer fruit than watermelon slices? This design is so easy to do but due to the very curved shape of my nails, the green/white lines aren’t as visible so I had to make them thicker. Still, it looks very “summer-y” and I like it very much 🙂
Happy Birthday to Meeee!
Sometimes you just gotta catch them all!
In case you didn’t “catch” it from the photo, I’m team blue 😉
These are not stamps. I literally took the time to actually draw these and it took so long!
I knew that I wasn’t going to be able to do this directly on my nails without failing before, so I took the safe route and drew them over nail polish on this rubber mat by MyBlissKiss. It took me 5 tries before I was actually able to do the cross bones with stars pattern, even using a tiny brush to do this made it so hard!
It was very difficult to create which is why I added a black/white gradient to the other nails to vary the design.
Also, I cut my nails before doing this design, and the entire “flipping” hand didn’t fit on my thumb, which is why it was a bit cut off on top. That’s why I’m including the original drawing so you can see the entire “middle finger up” like Beyoncé likes to sing now.
This, aside from the color looking amazing, smells like glory!! So much chocolate!!
I’ve been literally using too much neon lately! And this design lasted absolutely 10 minutes before I removed it because one of the triangles was misaligned. LOL.
Turns out, I have more than one pair of those sneakers, and gray also goes well with neon yellow.
When I tried to make this nail art, it was just because I was obsessed with Neon colors but didn’t notice until after I had this on my nails that I realized it looks just like my sneakers!
I re-did them because they didn’t have enough neon on the tips, and because some of them had already chipped off.
I’ve been meaning to try out this wood stamp and it looks…weird. Cause I didn’t use the right colors hehe. I used a very dark chocolatey base and used a sand color to make the stamp but it looks a little gray. Still, I really like how clean the design looks! Might actually try this again.
