Here we are, halfway through the week again. I hope yours is going well. This weeks Artsy Wednesday Theme is sewn patches.
To be honest, if it hadn't been AW this week, I wouldn't have been posting any nail stuff. My dermatitis is back, which means my cuticles are going downhill, and as you know I had to cut all my nails down, and I'm still nursing that break on my little finger. Such is life.
I did consider using my right hand, but then I went and broke the corner off a nail on that hand today too! (Stupid work photocopier) At least I suppose I'm getting all the hand ugliness out of the way at once haha.
I wasn't really sure about what to do for this one, so decided to just be literal about it, and paint some patches on my nails. Here's what I came up with:
The base for this is my favourite light pink, OPI Mod About You. This made it to number 6 on my all time favourite top ten polishes post (link) so that tells you how much I like it! This is one quite generous coat and it's completely opaque.
I then used a darker pink shimmery Rio striper and a dark blue Kiss striper to draw the patches. On top of that I used a Claire's white striper for the stripes, and Essie Blanc and a dotter for the dotty patches.
Here's another pic:
It's all topped with a coat of Seche Vite.
So despite not really being in a nailart-y mood, and not having much of an idea what to do when I started, I don't think this came out too badly, it's always nice (and surprising) when that happens.
