Day 176 - Monsters

Every now and then I do a design where I just shake my head and laugh, today is definitely one of those days! I really am not sure where this idea came from, I was just digging through my drawer with all my 3D embellishments, when I came across some googly eyes in an unopened pack and I thought, these could be fun to play with. Next thing you know, I have a bunch of crazy monsters on my nails. But I am not going to lie I kinda love them, they bring a smile to my face every time I look at them.

These were done using a variety of nail polishes, Instant Artist paints and acrylic craft paints. Each monster was painted in the base color, kinda deciding the shape as I went. Next I gave them all mouths and added other details to give each monster its own personality. Once that was done I outlined everything and gave it a good coat of top Coat. Final step was the eyes, I waited for the top coat to dry and I attached each eye with a drop of nail glue. As silly as the eyes are, they are just too much fun! I know these will get used again in the future.
