It's the REFB logo on my thumb and a Campbell's Tomato Soup can (a la Warhol) on my ring finger! These were really fun to paint.
I started with a base of white polish. I used a new white polish that was recommended by Leslie of Nail Polish Art Addiction, thanks Leslie! This is just one coat of Snow Me White by Sinful Colors. I'll never go back to Sally Hansen Whirlwind White!
The soup can was the hardest thing to draw. I used acrylic paints for all of the art on the nails. There are so many tiny details on the soup can, I did the best I could.
Here is the beginning of the REFB logo. So cute, a heart inside of an apple inside of a box of food. It is very evocative and has a clear message.
On my right hand I painted an apple (it turned out really photo-realistic! I am so proud!) and also the letters 'refb' for Redwood Empire Food Bank. I painted this with my non-dominant hand.
Here are the two hands together. I really like how both of the items of food are red, which brings the design together. I also like that one item is non-perishable and the other is fresh fruit. Redwood Empire Food Bank is able to distribute both shelf stable and perishable food to our community. It is really an amazing effort.
Here are my thumbs with the REFB logo and the letters 'refb'. I had to ask my friend Lauren to take this pic at work for me, LOL.
Polishes used in this manicure: Seche Vite topcoat, Sinful Colors Snow Me White, and Essie All In One Basecoat. The nail art was all done by hand with acrylic paints.
