Hey you certainly know what you're doing with your airbrushing, like the first one!
Although can't help but think that maybe the first one didn't need the 3D figure on the top. IMO I it's good enough with out.

So yep, the first one is my fav, but I'm a bit of an airbrush freak me!:lol:

Although I do appreciate the skill and effort gone in to your work on the 3d stuff, airbrushing tends to float my boat more!:wink2:

Thanks for sharing!

Thx everyone :wink2:

lol louby lou....:D I have never entered a competition before and when i actually get it that there is one going on it,s allready over ;)

I,m thinking maybe next year if the cash is there to participate at the nailympics in the category nailart. It,s just the fact to get there, find a model, etc... It always held me a bit back of entering.

I would love to do more detailed and complex 3D if i would know that it was for the sake of something. My 3D nails have served to be in scratch magazine twice and once in the nails magazine since those were the only times i contacted them if they could use them for something. Elsewise they just lie around collecting dust :D

Im sure you would have a queue of willing models to help you out if you did enter,
and i am sure who ever was your model would have the added benifit of learning loads from you on the day.
Good luck to you if you do decide to enter but i dont think you will need any luck, i think you would win hands down.

Thx :wink2:

It,s a mixture of acrylic sculpting techniques that i combine to make them.
But mainly they have been build up from the base by using small beads of acrylic and shaping the overal sculpture in this way. They do take a while to make...everytime when i have done one i feel i got nearsighted :lol:
