Here is the photo that our ladies have picked as our inspiration. Luckily Kristi was good enough to explain what it is:
"it's a silicon wafer with patterned metal or the common name = computer chips! Computer chips are all created on a single circular wafer and then cut up later. This is what we actually call at my job (Intel) a "pretty" wafer....it's only made for photos and would not really work in real life."
I really had no idea how to recreate that beautiful photo on my nails so I ended up going with a loose interpretation. I started with a base of Jade Mystic Gold and then stamped a computer chip image from Winstonia W317 with a rainbow of colors. I used Mundo de Unas Reddish, Barbie, Neon Blue, Lemon Tree, Aqua, Yellow and Tutti. I tried so many stamping polishes but those gave me the brightest result so I went with those.
To try to make my mani look anywhere near as sparkly with rainbows as the original photo, I took my photos in direct artificial light using a gold holographic sheet as my background. Looks pretty neat eh?
So happy birthday Cathy, Kristi and Kerry! I think everyone's interpretations are going to be mighty interesting this month. I personally can't wait to see them all. We can find them all in the links below.
'Til next time...
