I could not decide which nail art to re-create so…
I decided to cheat a little and re-create something from “Hobbit Fan of the Week” (from the movie facebook page) Katie Alves who did this awesome Hobbit-inspired eye look. I know for sure I could never do this on my eyes but I wanted to give it a go on my nails.
This manicure came out so much better than I anticipated. I am so glad this is the last prompt so I can keep it on for as long as possible!!
…And chances are I will be doing it again in December when the next movie comes out!

After I took the pictures, I sealed the designs with Seche Vite. I was nervous that the artwork would smudge, though, Seche Vite is awesome at preserving detailing.

I love this design! Especially the thumb. Oh, that thumb! ❤
Thank you! I am so happy with how this came out…so much better than I anticipated!!
i really like your gradient underneath the design. it looks amazing!
Thank you so much! I actually use a sponge-tip applicator for more than two colors because it is more precise. I am personally not a huge fan of using a make-up sponge.
