Every month the Digit-al Dozen shows appreciation for the bloggers in our group who are celebrating birthdays by having them choose a picture that we all create a manicure based off of. This month we celebrated Amber (Nails Like Lace) and she chose an AMAZING picture of what we are joyfully calling "Unicorn Wood!"
Check under the cut to see the picture she shared with us and more of how I decided to interpret it! :)
So this is the picture we had to work with. Isn't that friggen gorgeous?! Man if I could have all the furniture in my house made out of this I would do it in a heart beat!
I decided to just sit down with this pic and start creating without any plan in mind. And this is what I ended up with!
After putting down a white base with Sinful Colors Snow Me White, I used all the shades in the Beyond the Nail Summer Galaxy Holo Collection to do a smoosh mani/stamping marble. But that wasn't enough for me, I needed something else to be going on, so I pulled up some of the coloured polish to show the white below for contrast. :)
Once my base was dry I knew I had to bring in another component. I decided I was going to focus either on the idea of a unicorn, or the idea of wood.. Since all the pastel gorgeousness in the base is unicorn-esque I went with painting a white bark design with my Art Club White Liner. But why stop there! I then covered the white lines with polish from an Art Club Glitter Liner and then covered the whole thing with China Glaze Fairy Dust because WHY NOT.
Pastel + holo + rainbow + white + YES. I'm super in love with how these turned out!
Let me know what you think! Thanks for visiting! xx
