Fireflies by DreamWalker412 Fireflies by DreamWalker412
here's my entry to :iconheavenlynailart: contest!
the theme was the Enchanted Garden and it was awesome! even thought I found a bit hard to figure out a nail art design xD
I decided to go for something that's not that magic, but I've always thought that fireflies give an enchanted atmosphere... so I tried to recreate it on my nails painting them while flying on some grass at night :)

I used:
- l'oreal resist and shine n731
- pupa folk waves n719
- kiko n344
-sinful colors n802 "san francisco"
-essence n23 "sundancer"
-poster paint
-glitters

I really hope you will like this!
much much love and I hope you'll have an enchanted day :heart:

thank you!! I tried to take inspiration from a book about fairies *-* but I should have worked some more on the fireflies themselves... maybe some more reflections xD

mmh you're right it takes some more time when sponging the colors on the nail...I don't know maybe add some more nail polish on the sponge before applying it but I'm not sure it works that was just an idea >< thank you so much hun!! :hug:

:o You've never seen them before? Oh my gosh you have no idea what you are missing!!! It's so much fun to catch them! We used to catch them and stick them in a little jar and pretend it was a lantern xD Of course, we would let them go after a while.

I know...it would be awesome to see them and catch them *-* I don't know I'm sure there are some of them round here but I've never seen them or heard anybody talk about them! maybe they can be found a bit more in the inland o.o

So long as the temperature is warm enough, they should be around. Now if you live somewhere in a more colder region, then there's the possibility that they aren't there at all.

xD Possibly. I know I live a good four or five hours away from the ocean and get them here.

this is the best comment ever and you made my day once again *-* I'm going to call you when I'm feeling sad :) don't know how to thank you! Actually I was afraid that this wasn't enchanted at all but I'm really happy you think that :heart: and don't say that u.u I'm pretty sure that if you do something fireflies-ish it will be much more better than mine u.u thank you so much, again! send you a big hug :hug:

I am so glad my comment made you happy :-D I really did mean what I said though!!! Your design was amazing & I loved it so much. I have always thought there was something enchanting about fireflies too :-)
I hate to think you would ever be sad but it would be quite a long distance phone call if you called from Italy to Scotland for a chat hehe! :-) It is so nice to know I can cheer you up though ;-) If you ever want to chat about anything you can always message me here on dA. I am always up for a chat anytime :-* Hugs to you too xxxx
