December Nail Artist of the Month - Perfectly_Polish

Hello polished world!  How are you today?  I'm doing well, and am happy to finally be bringing you today's post!  I'm taking a break from my Christmas manicures (kind of much needed since I'm painting and posting in a very short period of time and it's getting hectic) and bringing you the December Nail Artist of the Month!  Usually I introduce you to a Nail Artist of the Month at the beginning of the month, but not only was I sick, but so was the selected artist.  Since I really wanted to feature her, I decided to push it off until we both were better.

Today that day has come and I couldn't be happier to introduce you to Janet from Perfectly_Polish on Instagram!  Some of you may know her by her previous Instagram name @Janet_M1.  I actually selected Janet to be my December Nail Artist of the Month back in October after seeing her Legend of Zelda manicures.  Seriously, this girl has some talent.

Enough of my babbling, let's hand the blog over to Janet!

 I'm so excited to be doing this post! I just want to start off by thanking Alaina for this opportunity. When I first read Alaina's email I was so surprised that she had picked me to be her nail artist of the month. I honestly couldn't believe it! So Thank You once more Alaina for choosing me it is truly a great honor to be your nail artist of the month!:D

Hello everyone! :)  My name is Janet I am 19 and from Madera, California. My hobbies include nail art, baking, drawing and other crafts. Ive always had a great appreciation for art. I truly believe that their is an art in just about everything. I would always look at magazines and would wonder who all these wonderful people were and how they were able to turn something like nails into a work of art. I started getting serious about nail art after discovering instagram nail artists. I got inspired by the wonderful nail art community to switch my paper and pencil for nail polish and stripers. I'm so thankful for all the wonderful people on instagram that helped me grow and taught me things that otherwise would've taken me years.

For today I decided to paint Haley Williams on my nails. I used this amazing drawing that was created by Sophie from paintparamore on Tumblr. Ive seen it floating around the internet a couple of times and I finally decided to find the artist. I love Paramore so much but for today its just Hayley Williams. :)

Her amazing artwork. <3

This is how my nails turned out. Sorry for the glare there was seriously no sunlight so I have no clue were all the glare came from.

I did a slight orange to red gradient because those Hayleys favorite colors. It was hard deciding whether to add color to it or keep it black and white. After doing the outlines I decided to add in color. :)I also decided to add some tribal print. I wanted it too look like Hayley a lot more but you can stilll tell that its her when referenced with the drawing.:)




And here's a macro shot of Hayley! :)

really hope you enjoy reading this. Thank you so much for this opportunity I truly appreciate it. :D

It's amazing to me how Janet was able to get such detail on her nail!  Truly brings the meaning of "The Little Canvas" to life.  I can do some random nail art, but I don't think I could do anything as intricate as this!

Head on over to Janet's Instagram to see more of her work!  You can also see her work on her blog!!!  Please, head over to both and follow her! 

Thank you Janet for being this month's Nail Artist!!!!  I'm happy we finally were able to get this post up and running :).

Until next time, <3.
