Hello ladies! The theme for today is Metallic Nails.
I struggled back and forth on what constituted a "metallic" nail polish. All I have in my stash are foils...but alas, are foils and metallics the same thing? Is a foil a sub-category of metallic? I don't know either! So I figured this day was up for personal preference/interpretation.
Upon rummaging through mother's stash, I found some of the old Sally Hansen Chrome polishes. The silver one was the epitome of a "metallic nail polish" in my opinion, so that's what I settled on! The color is called Black Pearl Chrome and it looks lovely on me if I do say so myself! But I decided that this challenge was to improve my art skills, so naturally I had to add to it. Upon searching images under "metallic" on ShutterStock, I found lots of pictures of various metals and industrial themes.
I decided on a sort of corrugated metal type pattern (I don't know what to call it?)
This was my inspiration:
I used plate BM-209 for the fence-like pattern, Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in Lightening and a black striper for the .... striped part. That was redundant. Haha
