The Digit-al Dozen Does: Metal - Chain Link Fence

To end this month's theme I finally have the design I was talking about on Monday!  This was my bright moment and cause of excitement when I started working on my designs for the week.  I am ecstatic to share it with you!

Day Five - Chain Link Fence


The base of my design is two coats of butter LONDON Poole.  Poole had been sitting in the unswatched pile.  I recently used it with some nail art but never swatched.  I am loving this dusty turquoise! 


I applied my chain link using butter LONDON Goss and GA7.  These shades look amazing together!



I could have stopped with the chain link, however most of the fencing I have seen always has flowers/weeds growing up it.  We have a stretch of chain link in our background and I spent a week pulling all the vines off it.  With that in mind, I felt that my chain link needed some pretty vines and flowers!

I added my vines using Barry M Watermelon and BM309.  My original idea only had the vines, but when I was looking at the finished product I felt that a pop of color was needed.  I added a flower using Barry M Blackberry and MoYou Pro 08.





For me, this is the perfect design to end the week with!  I am so glad that I got over the frustration of doing metal designs because I have loved every design I created this week.  Plus what the other ladies came up with!  Hope you enjoyed it too!

  8. Wow, wow, wow! Your mani is just awesome! *mind blown* I am always so amazed (and dance a happy gleeful dance) when I see this type of nail design so well done. I truly appreciate the thought that goes into creating it - the various polish colors, the stampings, the layout and, finally, the result! I also appreciate that at each stage of this mani, so many things could go wrong. Thanks so much for the wonderful pics!
