Learning: 3D Acrylic Art

Yesterday at nail school was a very busy day!
We had an event called "Professional Day" and everyone was allowed to wear fancy clothes, 
and we even decorated the school.
There are also a lot of students at this school studying cosmetology and aesthetician.
Each section of the school had to pretend that they were a real salon, so there was a "manager" and we kept track of how much "money" we made doing services.
 Our "nail salon" won an award for top performance! :)

We also learned a little bit of simple 3D acrylic art.. 
It was a nice change from just doing pink and white acrylic.
Don't mind the weird plastic fingers, it's what they give us to practice on but they are kind of creepy!
3D Acrylic cherries, bows, and hearts over colored acrylic tips and painted leopard spots over red acrylic tip.
Here is a small Hello Kitty done on a regular pink & white, using 3D acrylic bow and striper brushes.

 My new friend at nail school loves pansies, and her mother's name is Pansy so I tried to create a 3D acrylic pansy flower.. here is my first attempt!
It was difficult!
Since it was professional day, I made my boyfriend come in to get a manicure so I could make more "money" for the pretend salon hehe :)
