Digit-al Dozen Does Food; Day 3

It's Day 3 of Digit-al Dozen food week; hopefully you've been able to check out the ladies awesome food nails over the last couple days!  And did you see they have a pizza party yesterday and I didn't go?  Quite a few of them did pizza and had a virtual pizza party which was pretty cool!  

So continuing to think a little outside the box for food week, today's mani has the pineapple house that SpongeBob lives under the sea!  Here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of two coats of Nicole by OPI "Baby" Blue, no topcoat.

Did some water interest using L'Oreal Miss Pixie and OPI Sheer Tints I Can Teal You Like Me using brush.  I was impatient to do my nails because I didn't start painting til after midnight so a little blobby on index but I thought it would give some interest lol!

Added some sand  to the ocean floor using Zoya Godiva.

Added a few flowers for background interest using JR-20 and MoYou Tropical Collection-01.  I spent sooo much time looking for an image to use for these; little did I know that they would be lost with the stamping.  I custom made stamping colours by using MdU 11 and 30, then mixed right on the plate white.

I used several pix for inspiration but they were all along these lines.  These flowers are in most of the images and I was trying to mimic it!  While the other house didn't make it to my nails, I did have an image picked out to use for it too!

MoYou Tropical Collection-01.


Stamped on the pineapple on middle using a mix of MdU 59 and 66 using an image from MoYou Tropical Collection-07 for bottom and MdU 48 for leaves.

MoYou Tropical Collection-07

Made stamper decals for Spongebob and Patrick using acrylic paints.  This is from 12-56S.

Goodness; I can't believe I missed a tooth!  I really should start to wear my glasses when doing this work lol!

Patrick was from an image on FUN 11.

Added both stamper decals to the nail.

On the pinky, I had planned to do other house, but decided instead to add Krusty Krab.  There is no image for this, so I used one from MoYou Sailor Collection-10 using red Konad stamping polish, then added eyes by freehand.  Filled in the pineapple to make the house using same Nicole by OPI base polish.

For filler, added some coral, seaweed and starfish from MoYou Sailor Collection-10 using MdU 66, 59, and 48.

Top coated to finish.

Added a bit more Zoya Godiva at tips for sand.  It was very late by the time I finished, so left as is and made by way to bed for the night.

This morning, I thought the detail might be a little better in matte so added coat of OPI Matte.  I think it washed out the colours too much and my personal preference is the shiny version, but this was OK too.

Here's the other ladies Day 3 food mani's!
