Nail art: One Piece

Hello there! :) I'm here again with another nail art. I just finished doing this. I started last night but I was so tired to finish it because I had hospital duty yesterday morning. I decided to finish it when I woke up. This is for those manga fans especially the fans of One Piece. I'm not really a fan but my boyfriend keeps on mentioning it. He then challenged me to make a nail art of it. I know it's a bit messy. I'm still learning how to use acrylic paint. 
I bought the fake nails yesterday at the mall. It was really cheap compared to the ones I see on the internet so I bought it. When I went home and I decided to use it, I noticed that the set was good for 6 nails. Haha. Anyway, I just decided to use it for practice purposes. 

So here are the photos of my One Piece nail art. :)

Acrylic paint is really good for nail arts. It's easier to blend. It's ability to dry fast is both an advantage and disadvantage. Because it dries fast, there is lesser chance of smudging. However, the paint on your palette dries fast too. In order to avoid that, I just spray water on the paint to prevent it from drying.

I hope you liked it. :)


  1. Awww luffy's crew :) Nice one

  2. what a coincidence!
    i also just finished my one piece nail art just a while ago.
    though only the strawhat boys.hehe

    having a spritzer bottle filled with water is recommended when working with acrylics.just spritz it every now & then to keep it wet & it's better than adding drops of water.

    1. You're nail art is nicer than mine. Hindi ko nga sila kilala. Si Luffy lang kilala ko. Haha.

      Yup. Spritzer should always be present. :) Never knew that it would be easier to do nail arts with acrylics. :D
