Brace yourselves, everyone, I'm trying to be timely and relevant! This is quite the stretch for me so bear with me. I'm even going to talk about sports *gasp*. Anyway, in an attempt to get my bf interested in my blog, I occasionally make him challenge me with a design. His brilliant idea? The Euro Cup, with the soccer and whatnot. Sure thing, says I, flags it is!
First up, I started with two coats of Joe Fresh White. I wanted a nice solid base to start on and that was closest so that'll do. I started with my thumb by painting on a tiny pentagon somewhere in the middle with my new tiny brush, using black polish. I then drew out the rest of the lines and pentagons and it actually turned out ok. Encouraged by a decent start, I then moved on to the flags. I free-handed them all as taping gets risky, with the base colour. Colours will be listed below.
The Verdict: I'm kinda proud of myself with how well this turned out. It's like I have control over a brush and am relevant to world events, all at once yay!
- Green: Revlon Posh
- Yellow: mixture of American Apparel Neon Yellow and Sunshine State
- Red: Sally Hansen Cherry Red
- Black: misc Australian brand
- White: Joe Fresh White
What a fun mani, and great work on the details! If I'm going to do this, I'll go all out with Germany ;)ReplyDelete
