I bought this beautiful mug at either TJ Maxx, or Marshalls, I can't remember. It was on clearance. Woot! I wanted to try to do a mani inspired by the artwork on it.
I started with a basecoat, and then a coat of Revlon's Aloof. I have been looking for a white that is wearable. This is leaning towards grey/silver, but not too much. I really like it. If I was wearing it alone, I would have used two coats, but this is one and a little bit extra on the tips.
To make the background stems, I stamped with China Glaze Holly-day, a medium/dark green creme.
Then I took a small paintbrush and dabbed on Milani Purple Passion mixed with a little bit of Essence No More Drama
To make the rose, I mixed white with a little bit of a champagne color, Fizz It is, by Sally Hansen, and used a small paintbrush.
I painted the center of the rose with Nubar Verde.
I know it's a leeetle bit of a hot mess, but I like it. It looks a lot like the mug to me.
It was so much work, though, I didn't want to do it on my right hand. So, I tried out Nubar's Black polka-dots over the Aloof. Love!
Yes, I'm still wearing a different mani on each hand as I write this. I like both. Don't worry, I'll be wearing something completely different tomorrow, I'm sure.
