31 Day Challenge - Day 15: Delicate Print

Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Hey everyone!  Man, I know...I've been gone for quite some time, considering I was posting pretty consistently for awhile.  But, I'm back today with Day 15 of that 31 Day challenge.  Now, I can assure you that you are not mistaken that it has taken me over a year to get to Day 15.  I sincerely hope to actually finish the challenge before another year passes, lol.

So here we are: Day 15 - Delicate Print.  I couldn't figure out what print I wanted to do...and I finally narrowed it down between lace and paisley.  I would've attempted paisley....except I didn't bring the right colors to do it, lol.  I basically had to do this lace print with primitive tools...well, tool, a dotting tool to be precise.  It was the smallest dot, but it still was too big for my little project.

As you can see, the lines are too thick for it to be a "delicate print".  It was supposed to be a line just bellow the smile line, then little hills on top of the line with dots on top and below.  Yes...maybe I went a little overboard with the dots, hahahah.

Here is a slightly better picture to see the lace-ness of my nails.  Basically, I have China Glaze's Shooting Stars on my tips, and then OPI's Yodel Me On My Cell for the lace pattern.  Let me say that it always looks different in my head, lol.

Next time, I'll try to hunt down a tiny brush.  I didn't have one available to me this morning, so I had to forgo the luxury. Heheh  Also, I think I'd cut down on some of the dots.  And maybe do the same design on my ring finger instead of the fishnets I attempted.  Lots of stuff to improve upon!

Hmm...so I'm thinking about doing a review of Glen Ivy Hot Springs & Day Spa soon....and of course, I need to move on to Day 16: Tribal Print.  Man, another tough one!  In case you haven't noticed, I've never done a tribal print before.  Guess I better get crackin! Hhahahah

Till Next time!
