This week we were asked by EZFlow to create a fantasy piece over 5 tips to help people get excited about the new acrylic collection: Enchantment!

Fantasy nail art is something I have always wanted to attempt, so I was delighted to find out the details of this week’s challenge! When I hear Enchantment, I immediately think of a fairytale. So I decided to write my own story and make them come alive on these nails:


A village is being terrorized by an evil dragon. It is said that the only way to defeat the evil dragon is to get a WHIMSY flower from the Keeper of Time and space. So to take the matters into his own hands, the wizard sets out to the forbidden kingdom to seek help. On his way to the kingdom, he came across a fairy. He explained his situation and the fairy felt obligated to help! So she decided to give him a hand by granting him the power of ETERNAL YOUTH using her crystals. She then gave him directions on how to find the Keeper and wished him well, the wizard thanks her for her kind hospitality and went on his way. After days of trekking, he finally found the Keeper. Excitedly, he told the story one more time in hopes that she would offer him the Whimsy flower. The Keeper smiled and said "all you need is love" Then she rapidly wrapped herself in vines and vanished. Then it all clicked. ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE! So the wizard went back to the village and yelled out "I AM HERE FOR YOU DRAGON!" He then created an orb containing powers from a special part of his heart and sends it towards the beast. When it touched the dragon, he was at peace. Because, like the keeper said, All you need is LOVE! As it turns our, all the dragon really wanted was a friend, and he was just frustrated at the fact that all the gnomes ran away as they saw him...so the village invited the dragon to stay and this will go into the story book as THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER!



To say that this is my favourite set of nails to date would be an understatement. I sincerely hope you enjoyed the story and the nails as much as I did creating it!
