Creative musings in bright colors

I generally dislike animal print, but I knew I had to try something for the Animal theme in the 31 Day Challenge! Moreover, usually when I see a manicure, I can figure out how the design was put together (even if I know it is out of my skill level). This manicure, by Lacquerish, had me completely flummoxed. And it was a BEAUTIFUL manicure! Luckily, she has a tutorial ūüėÄ

I tried to replicate what she did‚Ķbut my polish is wavy in the wrong direction and thus I had to move fast (so the magnetic particles didn’t stay well), my polish is much more opaque than hers, and unfortunately I tried stamping before it was dry.

The base I used was Zoya Ziv. I realized I had never used Ziv in a full manicure, so I had to have some photos. She is just stunning. A beautiful gold foil with hints of…angles. Or something. But, beautiful.

Unfortunately, you cannot see almost any of the gold glitz under my grey magnetic polish. Adding the leopard spots didn’t help.

Maybe I’ll try this again at some point, but I’m going to need to be more patient (and go for unrealistic colors‚Ķand get a real tiger stamping plate or something)

Colors

  • Gold: Zoya – Ziv
  • Grey: Nails Inc – Trafalgar Square
  • Black: Julie G – Black Sheep

Oh well, live and learn! I consider this a failure, but a number of people still liked it. Each to their own!
