Hey y'all! I'm so HAPPY to share this mani with y'all today. It's something that I absolutely HAD to do, so keep reading...
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that a while back I stepped into a BBW store and grabbed this candle as soon as I saw it.
Seeing this was perfect timing too. Growing up, my dad called me Happy. I was out shopping one day and he was on my mind a LOT. Of course I couldn't pass it up, it smells AMAZING too. Also, that same day, I was walking out of a gas station with my drink & happened to see a Mini Cooper in a color of British Racing Green. Something he & I talked about a lot & it made me feel like he was definitely looking over me that day. Oh, and the day before I'd seen a bottle of Ketchup with the phrase "How do you Happy?" *cue Signs by Tesla*
Once I got home I put the candle next to his picture on my mantle. I went back a few weeks later and grabbed another one so I could enjoy the scent and not burn the one I purchased that day. This kinda kicked my inspiration and got the creative juices flowing. I HAD to do a mani to match the candle.
I started out with a base color of Sinful Colors Snow Me White and put a coat of Seche Vite to help it dry quickly.
For the squares, I used a cheapy art brush that I cut into a thin nail art brush. The colors are Finger Paints Grassy Knoll, Fresh Paint #WINNING, and Zoya Hunter. I didn't use a top coat once everything was done because the label on the candle has a bit of texture to it and I wanted the design to have that same sort of feel/look to it.
So that's it. I quite like how it turned out AND that it sparked my creative juices again.
What do y'all think?
