Nail Crazies Unite - Sweets

Hey there!  Today's Nail Crazies Unite themes is Sweets.  I thought for sure that I'd use the latest Bundle Monster set since one of those plates is loaded with sweets but then I went on a huge jelly bean binge.  By huge I mean I ate a kilogram of jelly beans in a month.  That's A LOT of jelly beans. So while I was in the middle of my binge, I decided to try to freehand some jelly bean nails.  My colors didn't match the real jelly beans at all but I think the colors I used look even more delicious than the real thing.  Great, now I'm wishing I had that big bag of Jelly Belly's back...

These were pretty easy to do, even for me who doesn't freehand much.  My white base is KBShimmer Eyes White Open.  Then I painted where I wanted my jelly beans to go with black acrylic paint.

To color them in I used my favourite KBShimmer collection ever, the pastel neons from Summer 2015.  They are Lei It Again, Leggo My Mango, Rum Me The Right Way, For Sail By Owner, In Yacht Water and Sarong Place, Sarong Time.

Then I added the white glare with Eyes White Open, went over the black lines again and finished with Clearly On Top.  I got a fair bit of streaking but nothing that was noticeable in real life.
