31DC2013 Day 06: Violet Hippie Mix

Peace, love, and polish. What more could any free-spirited lacquer lover ask for?

This nail art combines a few classic elements of hippie culture in shades of violet. I began with the simple tie-dye effect and then the rest of the manicure took off from there!



I've done a more realistic looking spiraled tie-dye before, but I like the simplicity of this one, too. Of course, it doesn't hurt that this one is much faster and easier to execute!

I added a feather to my pinky and a daisy pattern to my pointer. The manicure was finished with a lava lamp/peace sign hybrid on my thumb.



There are four shades of purple used in this manicure.

OPI You're Such a Budapest - light lilac base
China Glaze Crimson - deep red leaning grape shade
China Glaze Grape Pop - classic royal purple
China Glaze That's Shore Bright - medium pinky purple



I'm so happy that I had an easier time coming up with this nail art than I did on blue day! Two days in a row of that and I think I would have had a breakdown.

  9. I had a breakdown yesterday. I ended up doing four different manicures, 'cause the three first ones sucked. Fortunately I was happy enough with my fourth mani to blog about it.
