I always hope that I end my week with my best design. In fact I typically plan my designs that way. This week that didn't happen. I got really stuck on my last manicure. I spent days trying to find inspiration and nothing was helping. So I just sat down and put something together. I actually had some colors pulled, which helped. In the end I went with an Art Deco design that I put my own twist on.
I started with two coats of Zoya Jacqueline.
I sponged on a coat of Bettina Birds.
And finished my gradient with Lime Crime Crema De Limon.
Here is where things got a little crazy. I decided to do a gradient stamping using Milani White on the Spot, Barry M Grey, Milani Black Swift and W111. In my head this looked wonderful, on my nails...not 100% sold.
It is a cool design, but I think I should have stuck with one stamping color. Now that I am looking at it, gold might have been an interesting choice. Let's call this an abstract/twisted interpretation of 20s Art Deco! Can't say I don't step out of the box!
