Mixed Media Nail Art for Competition

This has nothing to do with polymer clay... but I have incorporated the skills and techniques used when working with clay in the following work... ...

Two(2) weeks ago I was at the "Fantastic Nails Awards 2009" International Nail Competition held in Malaysia. It was my first time competing in such an event. I have participated in the Mixed Media Nail Art category and unfortunately, no trophy for me this time {sigh}...

Here's my entry:

However, I was WOW by the quality of artwork presented by other participants. They were inspirational and motivates me to work harder and better! lol...

Mixed Media Nail Art: 1st Place

Mixed Media Nail Art: 2nd Place

Mixed Media Nail Art: 3rd Place

Mixed Media Nail Art: 4th Place

Material used to create the above artwork usually includes Acrylics powder, Gel, Acrylic Paints, Nail Enamel, Top Coat, Crystals, Glitters... and so on. It's mixed media so be creative! ;p

Ok first of all YOURS are gorgeous!!! I love the tropical rainforest theme. The winners were stunning, and I am sure that you will be right up there with them soon enough. Now the big question...are these types of nails actually meant to be worn? Or is the acrylic nail just meant to be an unusual canvas? I couldn't imagine wearing something that gorgeous and fragile around, atleast not on my hands...a brooch maybe though. Again LOVELY pieces.

These nails are not meant to be worn, but as a canvas to showcase creative artwork applying skills and techniques using nail enhancement products. The artwork is extravagant as compared to those wearable ones. ;p

Moving back to Singapore

Yes, I am going home... I will miss Hobby Lobby and Michaels' a lot! Hope I will have the time to continue claying 🙌
