31DC2015: Day 21 Inspired by a color

It’s become quite evident over the last three weeks that I’m a sucker for the clean/naked nail look. I’ve also had several (unsuccesful) attempts at feathered manicures.

Today’s prompt is “inspired by a color” and like many other participants, I’m interpreting that to be “inspired by a nail polish name” – in my case two: Essie – Ruffles & Feathers and Maybelline – Winter Baby.

I started out by making a jelly sandwich with Ballet Slippers and Eyelet which looks like falling snow. For those of you that don’t know, a jelly sandwich is a coat of a sheer polish, a coat of glitter and then one (or more) coats of the sheer polish again. Then I watered down some white acrylic paint and painted on the feathers.

21.1 21.2 21.3

Polishes used:

  • Essie – Ballet Slippers
  • Sally Hansen – Eyelet
