Creative musings in bright colors

Every now and then, I need to remind myself that I can actually do fine detail work. A friend of mine challenged me to do pysanky, or hungarian easter eggs, on my nails…so I did. This manicure took 2 hours to complete, and I have to say I am proud! I am also submitting these to Nail Polish Canada’s easter challenge, so please go vote for them!

I started by looking for photos of pysanky that I liked. Here, you can see two that I ended up going with (they are circled). The others I free-handed or based loosely off internet designs.

many eggs

So far, people seem to like the design on my ring finger (blue/black) or pointer (brown/yellow) the best. Which is your favorite, reader? And do you think this was worth two hours of my life? 😀

Unfortunately, Lucy of Lucy’s Stash already submitted some similar egg-themed art for the challenge, so I doubt I’ll win (she really is better than me at detail work, and woah her nail length! So jealous!), but it would be great if I could get at least a few votes. You just have to select “flightofwhimsy” from the pulldown menu.
