So as some of you may have noticed I have something of an affinity for anything sparkly. Man was I in for a treat when I finally got to try out Orly Sweet Peacock. It's the most glitzy foil you could imagine and a perfect blue. Application was decent, opaque in two coats. Sitting next to Sweet Peacock when I was applying this was Gone Gonzo from the OPI Muppets Collection. It looked a pretty good match to the blue so I though, hey, why not. OMGSOSPARKLYINEARLYDIED. It just enhances the glitter in Sweet Peacock and the silver just adds that little extra. WIN.
I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do. I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it. Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss. As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows? I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin. Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish. Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints. I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours. The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!
