Glam Nails Challenge | Octopus

Hello Sweeties!
I have the last July Glam Nails Challenge prompt to share with you today. July 31st prompt was 'Octopus' so of course my Disney obsessed brain had to do Ursula from The Little Mermaid!

*Info for challenge if you would like to join in can be found at the bottom of this post. Read on for more info!

I wanted to try something new with these challenges and since recording myself painting my nails for hours and then having to edit the video is just too much time and energy I don't have at the moment so instead I thought I could at least show my step by step process.

I started out by creating a blue, fuchsia, purple and black sponged on gradient as my base. I then freehand painted Ursula and her tentacles using acrylic paint. Once dry I sealed it with a glossy top coat.

Night Owl Lacquer-Ya Basic Black(black polish)
Night Owl Lacquer-Paint The Sky(aqua polish)
Lollipop Posse Lacquer-A Little Mental Yoga(purple polish)
Zoya Nail Polish-Charisma (fuchsia polish)

Nicole Diary-Nail Art Brushes
Glisten & Glow-Quick Dry Top Coat

Since this was the last prompt for July here is a collage of all my prompts :)

Here is the challenge. It was created by @nbnailart on Instagram. Feel free to join in and create some fun nail art!
