52 Week Pick 'n' Mix Challenge - 70's
I used a few bits of striping tape under the red and stamping on my index finger, to create a few negative space lines, and then painted some slap dash staples with Barry M Silver Foil, so it looked like 3 bits of fabric roughly stapled back together.
For the middle finger I stamped the fist from MoYou Punk 04 over the tartan with Barry M Silver Foil, and then used some black acrylic paint to outline the nail. I didn't plan to outline it initially, but it looked a bit bare around the edges so I did. I'm really glad I did though, that nail turned out to be one of my favourites!
On the pinky finger, I used acrylic paint to fill in sections at the sides, leaving a narrow triangle of tartan exposed. Then I outlined the sections with BM Silver Foil, and added a clear, star shaped rhinestone where the 2 lines met. I had no idea where I was going with this nail, and it's really off-centre too, but I think it looks okay nonetheless.
Man I love wearing these spikes, even though I had to glue 2 of them back on when I woke up the next morning. Totally worth it, and I managed to save all 3 of these when I removed the mani too, so I can use them again :D
So, that's all from me today lovelies. I'll be back over the weekend with my A-Z round up post, although it might not be until Sunday. It's my grandad's 80th in a few days, and it was my nan's last week, so we're all going out tomorrow. If I'm back early enough, I'll still try and get something posted, but if not, I will see you all on Sunday.
In the meantime, please do check out the thumbnails below. There are some truly talented ladies in this challenge, and I have no doubt that there will be some really awesome mani's there for you to check out......
