I actually created these nails for this week's Nail Art Nation prompt: Autumn Equinox. Plus I wanted to use some polishes and vinyls I purchased recently. I love fall, and fall colors, this season for me is never long enough and is just a whirlwind of activities. So, I chose these colors and the swirly gigs to represent fall.
Materials I used:
Basecoat - SuperChic Lacquer "Bring It On!"
Polishes - Frenzy Polish "Penny! Penny! Penny!" & "If You Don't Fight You Die" (both from the TV Frenzy Collection)
Swirl Vinyls from Lou it Yourself
Small dotting tool
Topcoat - SuperChic Lacquer "Marvel"
I started off with two coats of "Penny! Penny! Penny!" which is inspired by The Big Bang Theory. I have never seen this show but I had to have this polish when I saw it. I topped this with a quick drying topcoat. (Please excuse the misshapen mid finger, I'm having a bad nail week.)
Once the base color was dry, I placed two of the smallest swirly gigs on my ring finger. I then applied two coats of "If You Don't Fight You Die" based on my favorite TV show, Walking Dead. I immediately removed the vinyls, because the secondary polish is matte it dries very quickly so it was important not to leave the vinyls on too long. I finished off the accent by dotting tiny dots around the outside of the swirls in my primary color with a very small dotting tool.
I did a little clean up with gentle acetone and a brush, however I did not apply another layer of glossy topcoat like I normally do, I wanted to keep the two different finishes.
This is a very simple, but (for me) a very accurate interpretation of Autumn. I love the colors and the contrasting finishes. Both of these polishes are gorgeous on their own but they also make a good team.
I hope you are enjoying fall (for those of you who get to experience it) so far, and I hope you enjoyed this nail art design. Thank you for stopping by, see you next time.
