Zigzag sweater nails

 

I have an awful lot of older manis in the vault, I’ll try to post them over the next week or two, this is from August 1th..
The base color is NYC Mint Macaroon, a Tiffany blue, very, very close to China Glaze For Audrey, maybe even a dupe. First I painted a triangular pattern in turquoise acrylic color, then I outlined it in black and moved inwards with an indigo blue and the final triangle is pastel blue. I top coated with Seche vite.
It's NOT be perfect, but I didn’t really aim for a strict pattern either. I liked it and it made me think of a knitted sweater…
Jeg har en masse gamle designs på lager, jeg vil forsøge at få dem postet i løbet af de næste par uger. Denne er fra den 1. august.
Grundfarven er NYC Mint Macaroon, en Tiffany blå, der ligger helt tæt på China Glaze For Audrey. Jeg malede først er et trekant mønster med turkis akrylfarve, derefter omkransede jeg det i sort. Dernæst gik jeg ind mod midten med en indigo blå og den sidste trekant er pastel blå. Toplakken er Seche Vite.
Mønsteret er IKKE perfekt, men det gik jeg egentlig heller ikke efter. Jeg kunne li’ det, og det fik mig til at tænke på en strikket sweater…

    Jeg gik engang i skole med en dame i 45-50 års alderen der HVER aften lavede vildt nail-art matcende til det tøj hun skulle have på dagen efter. Hun fortalte at sådan havde hun gjort i flere år :-o Så ville jeg godt nok køre død i det...
