I wanted to do this design today to remind everyone to do there best to love our planet and treat it well! I believe I do a good job but I think everyone needs a little push every know and then. I am very good at recycling and I am also vegetarian, but today I felt inspired so I went to the local market and bought a bunch of plants, my goal this year is to grow an organic garden.
I painted this design a little backwards, first I painted the earth over the four fingers using a variety of blue and green striping paints. After that was complete I made a last minute decision that the Earth should be on a black background, to do this I had to go in with my black paint and fill in the unpainted area, total pain in the butt. But I'm glad I did, because this bluehas to be one of my favorites (from the 2012 neon collecction) and I think the black makes it pop that much more. I painted all the white outlines using a very thin brush, after waiting a few seconds for it to dry I painted in the lettering and symbols. I repeated this step using black paint for the rest of the detail. For theme nails I think they turned out pretty cute! And the great thing is, even though I had to cover up one of my hands for the hockey game my nails are at least still in the right colors (blue, white and green)
