Purple Winter Hat

One of my co-workers has a really pretty purple knit winter hat. A year ago, I remarked to her that I wanted to nail art her hat. She was very excited. I then promptly forgot until THIS winter that I said so! She was wearing it the other day, so here it is. Hi Amy, I finally painted your hat!

It is a bit funny to me that these nails (and her hat) are purple, seeing as how she always wants to steal my green polish (and only my green polish).

The hat is a knit with a few shades of purple, and grey buttons. I started with a purple base, and smushed (it’s definitely a technical term!) on other shades of purple using saran wrap. Once that was dry, I added either a stamp of a knit pattern using the darkest purple (which is why it appears so faint) or applied a stamping decal I made of buttons. Both stamps are from the 2014 create-your-own stamping set.

So there we have it, Amy’s purple winter hat! I actually really like how this mani came out. My own winter hat is a plain boring brown, so you won’t be seeing it on my nails at all! Happy Friday 🙂
