31DC2012: Day 15, Delicate Print

Boy I'm cutting it pretty close today huh? Lucky it's a Saturday so I had all day to panic about what design I was going to do. I had a total "writer's block" on this design. I even did a different design... I chose not to use that one for today but I'm sure I will show it at a later time.

I'm quite pleased with what I finally came up with for today's theme, delicate print.


Dragonflies!


The base of this manicure is Zoya Zuza. Then I used my It's So Easy Nails Stripe Rite in black to paint on the bodies of the dragonflies. Finally, I added the wings on using my medium length striper brush. I used a mixture of OPI Don't Touch My Tutu and China Glaze White On White to make a white that wasn't so stark.

Last year's delicate print was an attempt at a henna pattern. You can also take a look at upcoming challenge prompts here.
