Like I said in my last post, I am participating in the ABC Nail Challenge.
I added this challenge to the letter A.
Without further ado, A is for Aquatic!
WARNING: Slightly picture heavy post.
I was inspired by Kelly at Base Coat Top Coat Nails. Her designs are always so beautiful so when I saw this amazing design I knew I had to try. I opted for a bit more color in my design.
I also added matte top coat. I really like matte top coat with more complex designs because it reduces the glare, making it much easier to see the actual design.
The background is a sponge gradient of Sally Hansen's Pacific Blue and Essie's Bobbing For Baubles. Everything else was painted with acrylic paint. As you can see I used NYC Matte Me Crazy. I would definitely recommend this matte top coat if you're looking for one. It's cheap and works wonderfully!
Here's a close up of the thumb. I really like the turtle.
I couldn't bring myself to only choose a few photos.
Here's how the design looked with just Seche Vite:
The difference isn't too noticeable in this picture but the glare was pretty bad in all of the other pictures.
Okay last picture.
I hope you guys are liking this Alphabet Challenge! Next up is B!
