For these I started with 3 coats of Zoya Solange (a yellow textured) and then freehanded the orange stripes with Zoya Beatrix. At first I tried to get perfect stripes using vinyls but turns out vinyls don't play nice with textured polish. So I learned something new...and wasted a lot of time waiting for these to dry enough that I was confident the vinyls wouldn't pull up my base. So when they wouldn't stick I wasn't a happy camper.
After the stripes were dry, I used Mundo de Unas Black and this skull image that I absolutely adore from Loja BBF-24 for the stamping. I didn't top coat these because I wanted to keep the textured look. In the end I really liked these so it was worth the time I spent waiting for them to dry.
Here's a macro of the end result. They almost look fuzzy eh?
