I'm kinda excited about today's mani. I think it turned out kinda cool. I started off with a unique polish from Colors by Llarowe, Precious Metal. It's a light grey with a heavy red shimmer.
I think that red shimmer effect is so neat!
The art that I did was inspired by this Pinterest that doesn't link anywhere. And, the pix wasn't watermarked. So, whoever did the original art, out there in the ether... thank you! I love it!
My version goes more red. I painted diagonal tips on each nail with China Glaze Hawaiian Punch, and then a smaller triangle over that with Sally Hansen Red Zin. I will say, in Real Life, the color differences were much more subtle, and I would recommend using colors with a bit more contrast.
On the other side, I painted the diagonal in the very light grey creme, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. The overall effect is a multi-colored French tip.
I placed tiny glitters along each red side, and a red rhinestone off-center. I think it looks like Picasso's Santa Hat.

Can you see the abstract hat? Or does it just bug you that the stone is off-center?
