One for the money, two for the show, three to get polished… ok I don’t know where I was going to go with that but today on Llama’s Time Period Challenge we’re visiting the 1950s, I haven’t left since Monday it would seem.
I have gone for something very different today with bright primary colour blocking a little bit of stamping and a little bit of vodka transfer (yes I love that technique for achieving my concepts in this challenge).
So starting with the whole look all together we have NYC Lexington Yellow which for some unknown reason decided it wanted to be a textured polish today, BarryM Gelly Pomegranate yay for one coaters and BarryM Cyan Blue also only needing one coat today.
Who knows what the white is? Well done, yes, it’s Natural Collection White two coats. Now the stamping was done using Konad Special Polish Black and the plate from a set I was given for xmas numbered M-22. I love how well the superfine lines came out!
Onto Elvis – I found a nice black and white image on google, scaled it down in Microsoft Word and printed it out. Then using a vodka soaked cotton wool ball I applied the image onto my nail. As you can see lots of the details came across and this literally takes seconds to do! I smudged him a little with topcoat but you can’t really see in real life. So yeh, little king hanging out on my ring finger at the moment.
Not really much more to be said about this manicure really other than to make my excuses about the state of my cuticles. I love how bright it turned out and it is a little pop-art too I suppose. I am ready to listen to some rock’n’roll in the summer sunshine! If you haven’t given the vodka technique a try you definitely should – no need to fork out for expensive decals!
