Today's 365 prompt is to make something inspired by the world of reptiles. I've been seeing manis using bathroom poufs for a while and I decided to try using them to get a scaly design. Painting over the mesh just made a mess, so I used it to dab on top of the nail kind of like the syran wrap technique.
It made this kind of textured flaky look, I think if I used higher contrasting polishes the texture would stand out more.
I started with a base of green and let it dry a bit, then I put a light coat of gold over it and pressed/dabbed the mesh over it.
Here's the polishes I used:
L.A colors basecoat/topcoat,
CQ golden green,
Lakme fast and fabulous 40" gold caramel,
a bathroom pouf,
and N.Y.C extra shiny top coat.
Thanks for reading!
