Ziggy played guitarrrrrr!!!!!
sang hummed this line mani times while painting my nails for Day 2 of Digit-al Dozen does decades! When googling the 70's for this challenge, David Bowie/Ziggy Stardust images came up quite often. Then, David Bowie was trending on FB this weekend on what would have been his birthday (January 8th; same as Elvis!) and today being the anniversary of his death, I knew that a David Bowie/Ziggy Stardust mani was in order! I didn't do it in the colours of the era but more so kinda like a galaxy background to go with the whole extraterrestrial persona (not very successfully!); here's what I came up with!
Started with a base of two coats of Opal Lagoon, no top coat.
Added a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.
After letting my nails dry for about 15 minutes, sponged on Beyond Polish Peony, Dare to Wear Butterflies, FingerPaints Be Still My Beatnik He-Art and OPI Suzi Without a Paddle. Dabbed a little Parrot Polish White Gold here and there for some sparkle interest.
Topped with KbShimmer Clearly on Top.
I made a couple
I used the double shrunk image on my largest nail and it still barely fit! After placing it, I added stars from the same image with a clear stamper for placement. The rest of the images are from MoYou Roxy Collection-09 using FunkyFingers Gesso.
The placement of this image is a little awkward as I had to place it on the diagonal to fit and I don't think he's that obvious in all the shots but he is kinda cool so here's a solo pix!
Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.
Here's the other ladies Day 2 decades mani's!
Thanks for looking!
P.S: For all those David Bowie/Ziggy Stardust aficianados, I know enough about Ziggy Stardust that the thumb may not be accurate so have taken some space artistic liberties here for interest!
