Black Squiggles Over Silver and Gold - Freehand

Good morning, dear readers!

Today I have a messy manicure to show you.  I don't know why, but I just haven't been that inspired this past week.  :(  I was chatting with ChiChi (from I'm Just Me...ChiChi), and she said how she does challenges to keep inspired and push her art skills.  I think I may just do that!  Thanks ChiChi!! ^-^

So for this manicure I used a base of Barielle Night Moves (a gorgeous silver foil), with China Glaze White Cap over top, and two coats of Essie As Gold as it Gets over top of that.  Then I painted squiggles using black acrylic paint.







You can see the splotches of gold over the silver in these photographs, but in real life the effect was more subtle and really quite pretty! :D

I hope that everyone has a fantastic Friday!!  Wooo!

  7. Love it. The colours go together so well. I find it really hard to get find nail art that I really want to try. It's annoying sometimes because there is so much out there but google only throws up the same old stuff :P
