The Digit-al Dozen does Colors That Collide - Autumn Camo

Hey there!  Yup, I'm the worst!  I haven't blogged in a month and I'm already a day late for this month's first Digit-al Dozen day.  I've really got to get my priorities in check.  I didn't even finish blogging last month's theme even though I had them all done.  But I'm determined to get this month's done, even if I'm late!  This month our group is doing a theme of Colors That Collide.  At first I just thought I'd do contrasting colors but nah, let's go with colors smashing into each other!  For the last week I've been a little obsessed with fall colors so I think I'll just do fall colors this week.  I'm not sure why.  It's been fall here for quite awhile (seriously, it never did feel like summer this year) but there's a single tree I drive by on my way home from work that I'm in love with.  It's a lovely red to yellow gradient, all on its own so I think it's the tree's fault.  Or maybe it's that we've already had some flurries so I need to get my fall nails in while I can!

I decided for my first color collision of the week, that I wanted to do a sort of stippled camo base but with reds, oranges and yellows instead of camo colors.  It was about 11:30 pm last night when I started these so I'm glad it turned out to be a relatively quick technique.  It also explains why I didn't stop to take a pic of the base on its own before I stamped.  I really didn't want to redo the nail art barrier I had on them!

I used a white base first and then a little brush to apply a bunch of Hit The Bottle Colors, all over and on top each other.  I used Spun Gold, To Have and To Gold, Burnt Orange, Copper-Haired Girl, Drop Red Gorgeous and Poison Apple.

For the stamping, I used Whats Up Nails B021 and Hit The Bottle As Black As Night before finishing up with Seche Vite top coat.  I usually use indie top coats and I'm remembering why.  The shrinkage ends up so bad with this top coat the next day.  But it was cheap at Winners so I couldn't resist.  Hopefully I can get back to my beloved Vibrant Vinyls top coat soon since I have some serious nail art to do this week for this theme.  

That's it for today.  It feels good to be back online so hopefully I can keep it up finally!  

'Til next time...
