Aussie Nails week - hand painted cockies

Hi there everyone! how are you?
Today I have taken inspiration from a painting i found on the internet. Here is the painting.

Image source-

This painting was painted by a lady called Jacqui McKinnon. And I love it! So I decided to try and paint this on my nails.
I used Zoya Song for the blue background, then with acrylic paint painted the background of branches and leaves. Then with Ulta3 polish (lily white,charcoal,honolulu,black satin,xoxo,chinchilly and soft hydrangea) I painted the cockies. then popped a top coat over it all.

It took quite a while to paint as each layer of polish had to dry.

I hope you like it I was quite happy with the results.
I love Ulta3 for nail art, I find that their opaqueness makes for good artwork.

If your interested in picking up a bottle or two of Ulta3 you can pick them up for only $2.00 at your local chemist or online at The heat group.
do not forget to check out everyone else's nails over this week below!

Until next time...........

  1. This is incredible, what an amazing job you did, I love it.
    I recently bought one of your polishes, "Glow Me" now I guess the name should have given me a clue, right.
    I always put my new colours on my nail wheel as soon as they arrive and I had it beside my bed and when I turned out the light, I thought what's that glowing on my table. Of course it was my new Loki, I just love it xxx

    1. thats awesome! Glow me! was a LE polish created, if i remember correctly the bottle should be numbered so they are few and far between :) do not forget to shake the bottle well before using as that will distribute the GITD pigment really well :) hugs taraxx

  2. Gorgeous!! So very very talented. Zoya is slowly becoming my favorite brand. You show the shade Song here beautifully with your extremely creative design! I would love if you could check out my blog:
