3D Lego Nails!

Ugh As soon as clicked on the new post button, the new post page loaded and then my internet immediately cut out!  It obviously was down a few days ago when the power went our but for the past few weeks it's been finicky in general.  Anyways I hope you had a great few days.  I had a new first!  A man followed me the other day!  Luckily is was by a busy road, and when I lost him I went and hid in a store for a bit.

Now onto things that aren't creepy men!

I've been wanting to do 3D nails for a while now but wasn't sure what I wanted to do.  I knew I didn't want anything too over the top, or something that would interfere with me doing things.  So a few nights ago I was looking at The Daily Nail's site, and I came across these Lego nails.  Not only did I think they looked nifty, I thought I could do something like that but actually make it 3D.

First I painted my nails the base colour of whatever the block was going to be.  Next I placed between 2-6 pieces of KKCenterHk gold circular glitter down depending on how many bumps the block was going to have.  After that I got out some nail glue, placed a tiny bit on each piece of glitter, and stacked another piece of glitter on top of the original piece.  Then I repeated that step so each of the bumps consisted of 3 pieces of glitter.  When that was done I got out my acrylic paint and painted over just the bumps, focusing on the sides.  Following that I went over the entire nail with the acrylic paint (you may need to do this more than once if the base colour of polish is slightly different than the paint).  Finally I topped it of with a couple thin coats of top coat.

Note:  My pinky finger was done entirely with polish because I didn't have the shade of green I wanted in paint.  While you can do this entirely with polish I found it much easier with paint.  Not only that but I found the bumps were more more defined with paint.

What do you guys think of 3D nails?  Thoughts on creepy men?

  14. The nails are incredible! Where can the glitter circles be found or is there an alternative you can recommend? I have never used paint before are there any negatives?

    1. Thanks! http://www.kkcenterhk.com/Nail-Art-Glitters-2.5mm-or-1/10/c130_140/index.html. And I'm sure you could use normal circular studs but they will look like domes rather than half cylinders. The only maybe 2 negatives I can think of are it needs topcoat. It has a chalky finish and needs to be protected and sometimes even out. You also kind of need to practice. So you know how much paint to use, how the paint will react if you do it too thick and such.

      TBH I have never done my entire nail in paint before this. It's just easier to work with for nail art. If you put a blob down on your work surface it takes forever to get tacky, but once painted on the nail dries super fast. It's also just easier to work with than polish(at least to me) and I find I use less of it than I would with polish. Not only that but a bottle generally cost a fraction of what you would pay for say an OPI.
