Welcome back to Digit-al Dozen week; this month's challenge is texture! I did this mani a few weeks ago and have been chomping on the bit waiting to share it......I think it is one of my coolest mani's ever....but if history is any indicator, what I find cool, no one else does and what I think is meh, people love! I guess we'll see!
Started with a base of two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and topped with SV (no pix as have shown before). Added Zoya Godiva at tips for sand.
Added images from Infinity 18 using FUN black stamping polish.
Using Mundo de Unas 22 (brown) and 37 (green), added palm tree from Infinity 18.
Added additional images from Infinity 33 (ring and middle).
A quick look at plates used; here's Infinity 18**.
Using the LeadLight technique, filled in images using assortment of jelly polishes. Polishes used were L'Oreal Jolly Lolly, L'Oreal Miss Pixie, OPI I'm Never Amberrassed, OPI I Can Teal You Like Me, New York Summer Hot Sky Blue, New York Summer Hot Green and American Apparel Redondo Beach. I also added a few birds; on the thumb, they are stamped from Infinity 33; on the middle, I hand drew it in.
Filled in the sky using a brush and more polishing. The skin tone is The Kit Nude Jude.
Just before adding topcoat, I added a few more layers of polishes on the sky and water to give a darker hue; not sure how noticeable it is in the pix! For top coating, I only top coated all but the texture polish and left it all gritty.
So what do you think....cool or meh?
Here's the other ladies Day 1 texture mani's.....the group also has welcomed a few new members, so be sure to check them out!
