PCFC - Red + Orange + Yellow Abstract Mani

Hi Loves!!!

Today's Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge was to use the colors Red, Orange & Yellow.  When I first sat down to create this mani I designed a very sickly butterfly.  Thank goodness my husband said "WTF!"  because he saved all of you from one ugly mani :D

Once I pulled my head out of my tush, I created this (in my opinion) awesome abstract mani.  Even though the pictures don't truly convey the colors used, the top right is red and the lower right is orange.



 

To create this design, I started with 1 coat of Avon's Sunshine on the accent nail and 2 coats for the french.  Sunshine is the brightest and prettiest yellow I've seen yet. Once dry, I drew on a square of Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby in the top and a circle of Pure Ice Hot Tamale on the bottom.  From there it was a matter of adding lines and dots with Kiss Nail Art Paint in Black, Silver and White.  There was no pattern persay, I just put lines and dots where I thought they looked good :) For the french, I chose to do a tiger pattern using all the colors on the accent finger.


I'm in love with this mani.  I feel like my "nail personality" came out in this design :)

So what do you think?  Is this more me? :)

Until next time! Happy creating!
