Originally, I planned to do a design based on the curtains that Maria used to make the kids' clothes in The Sound of Music. After a few moments of patting myself on the back for being so original, I googled it and found that Debbie had beat me to the punch! D'oh.
That was okay though, I had received butter LONDON Two Fingered Salute in the mail yesterday afternoon and was itching to use it anyway. It's a bit too turquoise to pass for the curtains in the movie, so I used it to make a pretty baroque design over my base color of Lime Crime Milky Ways.
I freehanded this design using my trusty medium length striper brush (I know, you're shocked). Two Fingered Salute was a bit sheer for nail art, so I did have to go over my embellishments twice, but I am enamored with this color and didn't mind at all. As for the actual patterns, I just made them up as I went. I did have to re-do a nail or two because I wasn't pleased with the way the pattern had come out.
I love the copper sparks in the turquoise base, and layering it over an ivory shade really just made for a nice vintage look.
What do you think? Are you feeling the vintage vibes?
Lime Crime nail polish can be found on the Lime Crime website and on Harlow & Co.
