31DC - Day 4 - Happiness
Dark Metal Lacquer - Flashy Sparklies and She's Like Heroin as my design colours. FS, and her silver sister, Whisper, have provided me with a lot of warm fuzzies since I bought them, and SLH is also named after a System of a Down song, which is awesome.
Then I picked out my all time favourite stamping image, the inverted roses from MoYou Pro XL 07, and stamped them on the ring and middle fingers with a black cream. (my favourite cream, naturally).
She Sells Seashells to create some thick chevrons. I used the vinyl's two at a time to get thicker sections, painted over them with SLH, and then pulled them up with some tweezers. Vinyl's are something I've only been using for a short while, but I've always loved tape mani's specifically for that awesome feeling you get when you pull it up and see a clean, straight, perfect line. Same thing with vinyl's, except you don't have to build all of your patterns with straight pieces. :D Finally, I lined the divide between the chevrons with black acrylic paint to help tie it in to the other nails, and top coated.
So, what do you guys think of this mani? I can't help but feel this would have been perfect for the "your signature style" prompt, and that now I won't be able to come up with anything as good for that. That's weeks away though, so I'll worry about it then :D
In the meantime, as always, you guys should check out the other mani's for today by visiting the thumbnails below....
