Here's the photo that we picked to challenge ourselves for some pretty busy nail art. I figured I could manage a cartoon picture such as this there's some obvious differences between the picture and my nail art. It turns out my nails aren't big enough to fit everything on them...grrrrr!
I happened to already be wearing Zoya Blu so I kept it on as the base for this mani and then just sponged a bit of white at the edges though that's blown out in my photos so you can't see it. Trust me, it's there! Then I went to town on my Sunday afternoon with a mix of mostly polishes and a few acrylic paints (the black, brown, white and grey). My favourite part is that I used Zoya Godiva for the sand. It's a textured polish but I topcoated these with HK Girl so it just looks sparkly. That's when I realized my bottle of Godiva is more than half empty and I don't know if I can get another. Oh no!!
I did happen to write down all the polishes I used here, so if you're curious they are:
Zoya Blu, Zoya Godiva, Essie Sand Tropez, KBShimmer Sky Jinks, KBShimmer Beach Please, China Glaze With Love, China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, China Glaze Metro Pollen-tin, China Glaze Heart of the Matter, Dance Legend 389, OPI You’re So Outta Lime, Lime Crime Lavendairy, Essie No Place Like Chrome and Revlon Dominate. There was a lot.
I also mattified them to see how it would look. I still haven't decided if I like Godiva's sparkles more shiny or matte. Decisions, decision....
