The Digit-al Dozen Does: Re-creation - Gnarly Gnails Skittle Week Design

For my second design this week, I am revisiting a design by Gnarly Gnails.  We have seen a lot of girls come and go in the group, and I do miss them, but I really miss Gnarly Gnails.  I loved the designs she came up with, they were always so cool!  I had to pay homage to this amazing lady and I did it by recreating her gorgeous skittle lace design.



I tried to match the colors but I was lacking all but one.  I did my best but I realize that they are not perfect.  I wish I had used a darker army green on my ring finger.  I used OPI Pepe's Purple Passion, Catrice Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans, Catrice Khaki Perry and butterLONDON Two Fingered Salute.

I got out the acrylic white again to create the lace design.  This was my first time freehanding lace.  I like and I don't like it.  I wish my lines were a bit cleaner, but it is not bad for my first attempt!  I need a much thinner brush.


Miss you Gnarly Gnails!
