Inspired by a color? What does that even mean? Make a mani in all one color? Do a mani of something that is a particular color that you are inspired by? Who knows.
I decided to go a different direction with
it, and be inspired by a particular POLISH color! As many of you may be
aware, I am completely and totally obsessed with OPI Skull and
Glossbones. It's inexplicable. I just love the color so much and want to
paint my room and my floors and my sheets in it.
So I started with a base of that! Just divine.
Then I added on some skulls and some glossbones in China Glaze Heli-Yum. The Heli-Yum is... the color of lip gloss...? Okay, I might have stretched the limits of today's theme. Whatever, it counts though! Don't judge me!
I did the bones with a dotting tool and the skull with a nail art brush with a flat square end.
the skull, put on the full solid skull first, and then add on the eye
sockets and the nose ...sockets (?) with more of your base color on top.
So for example, I painted in the whole skull in Heli-Yum and then added
more S&G on top for the holes in the skull.
bones, put two touching dots on one side of your nail. Do the same on
the other side. Then connect the bone ends with a straight line of
polish. This connection step would probably be easier to do with a
striper brush or even any other kind of nail art brush, but I just went
with the dotting tool cause it was already in my hand.
Hope you like! If I can pull off tomorrow's mani like I have envisioned it... you are in for some serious craziness.
