Today's manicure came about from our challenge of "complimentary colours off a colour wheel" over at Adventures In Stamping. After looking at the colour wheel, nothing appealed to me at all! Red and green, blue and orange, purple and yellow. Purple and yellow? That sounds interesting...
When I looked at my available polishes, I then thought of a traditional winter knitted sweater. This is what I came up with;
I have used:
Basecoat - Seche Clear
Colour on ring finger - two coats of China Glaze 'Spontaneous'
Colour on remaining fingers - three coats of China Glaze 'Lemon Fizz'
Top coat - Seche Vite
Stamping and sponging- China Glaze 'Spontaneous'
Plate - NC03 from Nailz Craze
I'm putting it out in the universe, I do not like this manicure at all. I strongly dislike complimentary colours. If I ever did this design again, I would not try a gradient with colours that do not blend well. What was I thinking?
Yet... I love my purple 'Spontaneous' polish and I'm glad I got to wear it. I love my new Nailz Craze plate and I'm happy that I tried something completely out of my comfort zone.
Have you ever done a manicure that you really haven't liked, yet still found elements that make you keep it on your nails?
