Nail Art: The Very Hungry Caterpillar
I recently bought a set of nail dotters on eBay, so yesterday I took a bit of time out from everything to practise using them! The Very Hungry Caterpillar was one of my favourite books as a child, and I am still just a little bit obsessed with it. I have a Caterpillar calendar, a Caterpillar mug, bowl, plate, Caterpillar toys, Caterpillar plasters, Caterpillar books, a Caterpillar bookmark… all sorts! So it seemed only natural to attempt some Caterpillar themed nails, just for fun. 90 minutes and about 12 nail varnishes later, here is how they turned out…
I have to say, I am SO pleased with the result and I’m actually really proud of this attempt! The design took about 90 minutes in total, including drying time, which I don’t think is that bad considering I did it all freehand. The nails on my other hand all have polka dot tips like my thumb and pinky in this picture. I found the dotting tools surprisingly easy to use so I didn’t have much trouble with the drawing… This is definitely a more adventurous design than my previous ones anyway! The pale blue base is Avon’s Nailwear Pro in ‘Vintage Blue’, and the Caterpillar green is MUA’s ‘Shade 13′.
I have entered my design into Avon’s ‘Perfectly Polished’ competition and so far I only have 2 votes, so if you like my nails please vote for me here! A massive thanks in advance to those that do
What do you think?
