I didn’t realise that this was the theme for this week until I looked on Monday – so following up on last weeks bright multicoloured design… I have another one for you! I was really stumped to start with but then I was tidying up and a card from Verity (BionicHipsAndFingerTips) fell on the floor and it was a eureka moment.
I am super bogged down in work at the moment so I didn’t spend a lot of time on this design in all honesty but I think it turned out fairly well all the same. Polishes used: China Glaze Electric Pineapple (Yellow), China Glaze Roguish Red (Red), OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips (Pink), China Glaze Bahamian Escape (Blue) and OPI To Beagle Or Not To Beagle (Glitter). Black detailing was done using a sharpie because it was quicker than getting out acrylic paint and watering it down and finding my detail brush.
For the accent nail I started with one coat of Barrym Matt White just so make sure all the colours would be bright and opaque. For the other nails I did two coats of the colours and one coat of glitter (I totally love this glitter thank you so much to Emma for buying me the mini set!!). Once the white was dry I used the brushes in the polish bottles to add my colour in approximately the same shapes as on the card, then once this was dry blobbed on a bit of sharpie to approximate the face. Everything was topcoated and finished, the mani took about 15 minutes from start to topcoat.
I love how easy this was and how graphic the results were – the coloured glitter in To Beagle or Not To Beagle match up pretty well with the colour palette of the card and because my tiger face is so abstract it’s pretty easy to recreate wrong handed. There are some lovely tiger face images on stamping plates now though if you would rather stamp than doodle on your nails – I think Bundle Monster has a whole plate full of big cats!
