Lindsey at the Neverland Nail Blog is so incredibly creative. I love her blog so very much and about 3 weeks ago she announced The Summer Fun Challenge.
Day 5: ARE WE THERE YET?
I have been traveling quite a bit this summer so this phrase hits rather close to home. I'm actually at the point that I'm sick of traveling & all I want is to stay at home. Unfortunately that is not going to happen...yet. So to celebrate this mantra what could be better than MAPS:) First you should be impressed that I even own an atlas, even if it is an old German atlas:)
This manicure began as a base of some Sally Hansen white polish. The beige looking squiggles (mountain tops) were actually created with OPI Skull & Glossbones, but my brush was a little dirty for some reason from a crazy pigmented red and made it look a tad pink. The green parks/forests were made with OPI Stranger Tides. Then I squiggled Barielle Berry Blue for rivers & lakes, made dots for cities out of Sinful Colors Black on Black, and finally connected the cities with Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby roads.
I like how this turned out, especially since it was created while I had a migraine. Yay for maps!
