Creative musings in bright colors

Golden Lined Earth

I couldn’t help but think that this mani ended up looking like dirt with veins of gold in it. I was hesitant about this mani but I really like how it came out!

These colors are the same (other than the gold) to those used in an earlier mani, Coffee and Cream Chevrons. I wore these to work, so I needed my hands to look as similar as possible…without requiring me to freehand more chevrons! I settled on a gradient with gold lines.

The gradient is over a base of Zoya Flynn rather than a white base. It made the whole thing darker, which I like, but meant that the palest brown stood out less. I think if I were to re-do this I would use the lightest brown (Zoya Chantal) as the base color rather than Flynn or a white.

Maybe I should have stamped the same pattern on each nail rather than rotating the image, but I always like changing it up just a bit! Oh well. Hope you enjoyed!
