Hope yer all doing well :) I have been having major pangs to buy polish for the last week! I'm thinking of doing a post about the ones that grabbed my attention last month. Hmm watch this space!
I have to say I love today's challenge!So many different ideas came along with this one and the colours are guaranteed to be amazingly bright and fun so I cannot wait to see the other girls' post :D In the end I went with scooby doo :P
Would you like to see my latest concoction? ;)
If you have seen the show the first thing you notice is the hippie factor :P The big flower on the side of the van and the colours and of course Shaggy!They were probably all high as kites hence the talking dog and the really scary monsters that turned out to be people? I don't know but I love Scooby-doo! He is just so adorable.
I had spent forever trying to make a nice brown colour using my paints. I mixed every colour you could think of and nothing. Then I noticed what I had initially thought was my crimson red paint was actually a redish brown! I swear I would have been so mad if it wasn't for the fact it was the perfect match for Scooby-doo :P It would have come in so handy for my super mario inspired manicure HERE.
Anywho all of the details are done in acrylic abar the orange flower. This has an orange acrylic base but it wasn't bright enough for my liking so I went over it with my Nails inc Atomic polish which is a bright neon-ish polish. I love this so much but it is going down so quickly in the bottle :( I topped it off with a layer of Essence quick dry topcoat.
I am really liking the bright blue/acid green combination. Definitely a colour combination I will try out on its own in the future. Finally you can see my little sketch below. This was one of the easiest nail art pieces I have done for this challenge.I kept this on for a while after but then I had a bath and his ears fell off :( I should have put a drop or two of my topcoat of them too.
