Blue and Purple Quatrefoil Wallpaper
I'm working on my third 'wallpaper' pattern for the NCC challenge this month. I've seen a few nail artists do different versions of this Quatrefoil pattern, and I thought it would make a neat pattern to try as wallpaper.
I started with Azature Blue, an unbelievably sparkly, gorgeous medium bright blue.
I made the pattern by taking a large dotting tool and Azature Lapis Diamond, a periwinkle cream, and making a 4-leaf clover-type pattern all over each nail. The outer edges of each circle are to lightly touch the neighboring circles.
With a smaller dotting tool, I made a smaller version of the same pattern inside each Quatrefoil, using Azature Plum Diamond, a shimmery royal purple,
Bottle shot: Azature Blue, Lapis Diamond, and Plum Diamond.
I really liked how all the different colors and textures came together in this pattern! Maybe a bit bold for a wallpaper for me... but I'd totally do this in a shower curtain. Somehow, I doubt that will be an NCC challenge, though...
