I finally, finally, bought some acrylics to paint with, and this is my first attempt!
Once again mumma mitten is my model (yay alliteration). For a first try I'm not displeased, but I'm eager to do better, it's the perfectionist in me, plus I'm in desperate need of a finer brush this one was just too big! Mahoosive thanks, and credit for inspiration and general awesome teaching skillz, to Robin Moses, without her I never would have even drempt I'd be capable of such intricate pieces, and she has reignited my passion for art which totally when flat after I left collage. So if by some chance she's ever reading this, thank you from the bottom of my heart, thanks to you drawing and painting makes me happy again. and maybe someday I'll be able to make a living from this, that is my dream.
Here's the video tutorial I used as inspiration for the above nail art.
