Love-ly Nail Art Challenge - Gifts

Hi there guys. Hope you are all doing well. I returned to school today, it was actually ok but tests will begin and ok will disappear in an instant.

I originally had no clue what to do, I didn't want to do a standard gift as I wouldn't know how to paint it. But I had an idea that utilises cute cartoons which I was excited about, but it didn't exactly hit the spot. There's something about the manicure I'm not happy about, I guess I didn't paint it as well as I would've wanted to.

They're wedding anniversary gifts!!! I painted 1-6 year gifts (excluding 3 which was leather, I didn't know what to do for leather). Cotton, paper, fruits and flowers, wood and sugar. I'm only happy with the cotton and the paper since the rest weren't as nice I personally think it ruins the manicure but I really like the base colours. But I liked the idea.
