Hi guys, and welcome to the penultimate day of the NAGG challenge. Today's prompt is Pointillism, which is where you use little dots of colour to make up an image. Unfortunately, I didn't know that at the time, so I interpreted it in it's most simple form, and did a polka dot mani. Considering that I haven't studied Art since I was 13, I probably should have googled that, but I'm almost glad I didn't, as I really like today's mani.........
So, the base for this mani is a gradient of Rimmel Lycra Pro - Heart on Fire, Barry M - Red Black, and Sinful Colors - Black on Black. I adored this gradient, the Barry M is a bit sheer, but I think that contributed to getting quite a smooth blend between the colours.
For the accent nail, I used 2 coats of Sally Hansen Gem Crush - Cha-Ching over Heart on Fire, then freehanded the heart shape, and filled in around it with Black on Black. The dots, and outline were done with Barry M - Silver Foil.
I'm not so keen on the accent nail to be honest, but I loved the rest of the mani a heck of a lot. It just has this 50's Rockabilly vibe to it that I adore, and I am itching to recreate this without the accent nail. I will try and hold off a little while though so I'm not just posting the same thing :)
What do you guys think of this mani? And don't forget to have a nose around at the awesome mani's in the thumbnails below :)
