Hey everyone! Today marks the start of a new art challenge! Debbie Crumpet, owner of the Facebook group, Crumpet's Nail Tarts, decided to start a new challenge since our summer one ended. I only participated in a few days of the summer challenge because I joined about half way through. I also didn't know how fun they were! The thing I love about a group challenge is seeing the variety of nails people can come up with for one theme.
Today's theme was... tarts. I know, I know, right?! What the hell! Debbie posted this in the beginning of September, ( I think) and I brainstormed the entire month! I almost didn't participate but I figured, what the hell, it is a challenge for a reason! Off to google I went. Turns out there are two definitions for a tart. One, "a small pie containing fruit or the like," and two, a "prostitute or promiscuous woman. " Both definitions come from the dictionary. So, if you're anything like me, your jaw just dropped. You know it did. How the hell am I supposed to draw a pastry on my nails! I sure as hell wasn't going to put prostitutes on my nails! Welp, I believe I solved the problem. As soon as I was done with these, I asked my hubs what was on my nails and he guessed on the first try, so I figure they can't be that bad, right? Hopefully you can guess as well.
If you guess strawberries, you're wrong! They're blueberries! I am very pleased with how this turned out and I hope that you were able to guess what they were.
