Summer Challenge: Day 46 - Deckchairs

I came up with the neatest idea for this challenge.  At first I was just going to do green and white stripes, to represent the fabric of a deckchair, but I didn't like the way it turned out.  I started looking through my stamping plates for ideas and found it in my new set!

I started with 1 coat of OPI A-Taupe The Space Needle.  I didn't want full coverage just some color.

I created my design using BM309 and OPI Get in the Expresso Lane.

The end result is my wooden deckchair!  I had decided to matte-ify the design, but my Essie Matte polish has gone lumpy and ended up ruining my design. I was so happy with the design I didn't want to toss it out and start over, so no top coat. But it still looks pretty cool! :)

  1. SO COOL! I love the wood design! I have always been wanting to do a wood design on the nails and I'm glad to finally see someone do one =)

  2. whoa....this is a really cool idea, and it came out awesome as usual :)

  3. blog suggestion- for those on mobiles that only see the first pic, MAYBE you could put one picture of the completed mani first- that would represent your post better? just an idea...

  4. Beautiful! I wish I was as good with nail polish!

    I am giving away three unique pairs of handmade earrings on my blog and I'll be so glad if you join!


  5. oh! i didn't get it at first (my duh) but that's bloody clever! hurrah! x

  6. Hi, Taken lots of inspiration from your designs. Will be posting on my blog very recent. Going to thank you for that in my blog. I'm regular with your blog present & past. keep up the good work. Rupa.

  7. I really like your different takes on these designs. I never would have thought of a wooden finish - I would have pulled my hair out because I would have been thinking that there's no way that I can draw a deck chair! :D
