One Fish, Two Fish, White Fish, Three Blues..
I'm picking back up with the 52 Week Pick 'n Mix challenge this week, and combining the 3-blues prompt with the domestic animal prompt. Let's see.. shall I make a blue dog, a la Blue's Clues?
I start with this really nice, bright, opaque blue from CoverGirl, called Out Of The Blue. This is ONE coat. Easy, breezy, beautifu- wait. Wow, that's good marketing. You were thinking it, too, weren'tcha.
I started to do a chevron French tip with OPI Keeping Suzi At Bay, a medium blue jelly, but then when I added Sally Hansen Insta Dri Teal-y Fast, I just kept adding stripes. It's not a fishtail, but along those lines.
I really liked how this turned out. These colors look good together. I took a few pictures in case adding the animal part to the mani completely failed!
When I had all the blues picked, I thought of fish! And these cute goldfish from Cici & Sisi 11 fit the bill. I stamped with Milani White On The Spot.
Up close, you can see all the lines of the blues, but from a reasonable distance, it just looks like light and shadows in the water.
Everybody, now, "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!"
I've never owned any kind of fish before, but I do like watching them sometimes. Have you ever owned fish before? What's the attraction?
