Day 22-Inspired By a Fabric

I totally forgot to take a picture of the fabric I was trying to copy, but because I am already so late with this post I just wanted to share as quickly as possible! I have a tank top with these really cool mosaic pieces in orange and I thought it would be neat to replicate the design in a bright blue. This manicure took a VERY long time to do for one hand…about 1.5hrs…outlining each shape was definitely what took the longest. To do this, I painted three coats of OPI-My Boyfriend Scales Walls as “underwear” and then hand-painted all of the shapes with blue acrylic paint and a small nail art brush. It was a lot of work, but I really enjoyed how it came out!
