Day 15–Delicate Print Paramecia

A little paramecium can be delicate and cute too right? These guys look a little like bugs too don’t they? I had a very hard time deciding what to do for today’s delicate print, so I started thinking about things that were small and fragile which led me to our microscopic buddies!

I started out with two coats of Essie – Mojito Madness and then made some tubular-like shapes with Essie – Navigate Her. I then painstakingly outlined each paramecium with black acrylic paint and drew on the cilia, or little legs. This was probably the hardest part to do and my back was so sore when I was done!

    1. Acrylic paints make drawing SO much easier! Just get the ones that say non-toxic on them and you should be good!

  8. How cute! I love your science-y nail designs. (:
    What acrylic paint do you use? Mine never turns out that opaque looking unless I go over it 100 times. :(
    Hehe, I love that you called them our microscopic buddies.

    1. I just use an acrylic paint that Michael's sells...don't know if you have that in the States, but I do have to go over things a once or twice if they're not dark enough.
      They are our buddies!!
