This week EzFlow and Nails magazine wanted us to create a set of fantasy nails.
The designs are inspired by EzFlow's new collection of coloured acrylics named 'Enchanted' - with colour names such as 'Eternal youth' and 'Nymphs and Nomads' my first thought went to the classic Disney Movie Peter Pan, and the magical world 'Neverland' where you never have to grow old!
Fairies like Tinkerbell spend their days roaming enchanted forests making magical things happen.
My Fantasy nails start from the thumb, in London with Big Ben, where the rainbow can take you across to the forest of Neverland.
Tinkerbell is hovering around the forest, making magical flowers appear wherever she goes.
Sparkling Butterflies can be seen below every rainbow and mystical, magical doors can transport you to a different place and time.
I wanted this piece to represent and encompass my time so far in the competition, but also stay true to my style of being clean and simplistic.
I made each of the nails to have a similarity to other challenges I have done throughout the competition, to see how much growth and journey I have taken.
Before NTNA, I had never completed a fantasy piece, and the thought of it felt overwhelming! Especially to complete in one week.. But now I feel confident I can achieve anything I set my mind to.
Even though I have been a Nail Tech for a long time, this competition has taught me so much, and this is the culmination of my growth.
I hope you enjoy looking at my creation, and it sparks some magic in your day! xx

BIG BEN NAIL - 1. I created the rainbow with coloured acrylic on grease proof paper 2. I continued layering all the colours of the rainbow 3. To build Big Ben, I sculpted the basic shape with coloured acrylic 4. Once I built up the building I hand painted the clock details 5. To create the cloud I layered circles of white acrylic 6. I also painted the cloud with matte and glow in the dark top coat, for a cool night time effect 7. For the base tip, I painted it with blue gel polish, and marbled some white polish into the second layer to give it a realistic look

FOREST FLOOR - 1. I created my roses petal by petal 2. I twisted each petal around some wire before it is completely hard 3. I sculpted each leaf on a piece of grease proof paper 4. I added the leaves to the rose while they are still a little pliable 5. I make the mushroom tops with red acrylic on the end of a brush, I added some wire underneath and covered the stem with white acrylic  6. I continued making mushrooms and roses until I could cover the full nail tip 7. On the base of the tip I put one layer of gel polish, I coated it in a mix of green pigment and acrylic and then cured it (for a mossy look) 8. I attached all the pieces to the tip

BUTTERFLY NAIL - 1. I placed some grease proof paper over a picture of a butterfly 2. I sculpted the wings with differing shades of EzFlow glitter acrylic 3. Here I sculpted the butterfly body 4.

I wipe the polish brush in-between the colours to achieve a smooth fade 7. Finally I applied gel top coat
