I got a new blanket that inspired this nail dezine. It's black with colored Peace signs and colored splashes.. It inspired me but i'm not so sure my idea came out the way I wanted. I had a hard time with the crackle, it just wouldn't crackle enough to show the colors through it.. Oh well, it was fun to do.
I used a basecoat first of Nailtiques a nail protein basecoat. Then I used a basecoat of Seche Clear. I used the colors Mint Sprint by Sally Hansen and 4 by Sinful Colors, Amethyst [purple] Innocent [green] it looks yellow in the pic and the purple looks blue.., Why Not [Blue] the blue pictured is Love Nails, it was too light for what I needed so I swapped it for "Why Not"and the last color is Feeling Great [Pink] I also used one coat of Snow Me White so that the colors popped better.
Here's a better less fuzzy view of my nails and my inspiration, my new blanket*
Please comment if you like it.. I love this idea on my nails, I might work with it a bit more and try to come up with a diff idea to fix the crackle problem...
