Horse Nail Art - My First Of 'Real Life' Animals

Hey beauts!
I am super excited for tonight's nail art - I usually avoid 'real life' things & do cartoon's buttt I got requested horses!
I love & adore horses myself so I did my best, I am so so proud to have done these, at a standard of which I love them!

I really am sad to see these go & wish I would have used a peel off base :( maybe I will recreate them on falsies for a frame soon!
It is such a major thing for me to like my own work - 90% of the time I really do not lol.
I just can not get over how real life I managed to make it - well real life for nail art lol.

I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls as my base color, the rest of the design is all done using acrylic paints.
On the plain white parts, I used a wash over of blue with watered down paints- not sure it is seen much in the pics.

I hope you all enjoy tonight's art, as much as I enjoyed doing this for you all :)
