NCC: Boston Tea Party Nail Art

Hey guys!  Today I have my last post of the month for the Nail Challenge Collaborative, and boy did I just sneak it in on time!

You may have noticed a theme with my entries this month, they started very literal (with a tea set on my nails), moved to a less literal interpretation (blue china print), a creative interpretation (Alice in Wonderland) and now I'm just going totally off the wall, with "The Boston Tea Party" nail art!  Hey, it says "tea party," doesn't it?

These actually ended up being my favorite nails of the entire challenge!  I've been trying to do more scenes that span my nails lately, and I think it's starting to pay off!  I was really proud of these, and super bummed that I worked right after doing them.  They didn't survive.

This is the picture I used for inspiration!

I decided to pretend like there were no visible people on the boat, and that it wasn't so close to shore... I can only do so much, people.  I didn't want them to look crowded either.

And here we have a close up of the thumb, since you cant see it super well in the photo above.

It's just more ships coming in to harbor.  I was really happy with these nails!  I think they conveyed what I wanted them to and I think they spanned across my nails rather well!  I was super sad when they got ruined.

But anyway, make sure you check out the other ladies' final manicures for this very interesting prompt!
