MMMM... Pie! #ChallengeYourNailArt #FallingForNailArt
Today's Challenge Your Nail Art prompt is for Fall Food. Nothing says Fall to me more than baking! It's too hot here in Florida to do a lot of baking in the summer, anyway, but the really good apples don't get ripe until the Fall.
So when I saw this nail art (original author unknown) for cherry pie, I thought, well, I'd rather have apple.
I started off with Revlon Orient Express, but it was too red, so I put a layer of OPI Glints Of Glinda over it, which gave it a milky, softened look that was more like what I wanted.
I used a short brush to daub Zoya Flynn in a cross-hatch pattern, like a lattice-top pie. To give it more dimension (and golden-brown deliciousness,) I added little spots of Lacquerhead Polish Ashlyn, a dark brown holo.
Yeah, it still looks like a cherry pie, I guess. Which is okay. It's still pie, after all.
Bottle shot: Revlon Orient Express, OPI Glints of Glinda, Zoya Flynn, and Lacquerhead Polish Ashlyn.
Will you be indulging in a little pie this week? What's your fave? It's so hard to decide, but a good peach pie is hard to beat!
