I am so happy cartoon nails are back because I think they were super popular during the rise of cutepolish and nail art about 10 years ago and I just never got around to doing them, but I have been making an effort to knock off my nail art bucket list and even re-doing things I tried oh so long ago because I would like to think that my skills are better AND my photos are a lot better now! I remember I would only paint them if I had a day off the next day because I always painted at night and would take my photos in natural light as I had no ring light at the time. Back then, ring light setups were a bit of an investment, but I can’t believe that they are so affordable now! I used to pray that I wouldn’t get any sheet marks on my nails or cause any damage to them before they could be immortalized by photo!
Following this tutorial by HannahRoxNails, I did the best I could with hand-painting, but the black outline was the hardest to get smooth! I tried! In the end, I am really happy with how they look especially now that my nails are long again. I think the length really suits the design!
