FingerFood’s Theme Weeks: Abstract: Using Revlon Polishes
I didn’t know where to start for the abstract theme for this week’s FingerFood’s Theme Weeks challenge.
So I did what I always do when faced with something I’m not sure about … I Googled!
I looked up abstract art and found a nice abstract painting to use as my inspiration. I was going to try to copy it using the distressed technique (see Chalkboard Nails’ distressed tutorial). I started off with a coat of white and then barely scraped the polish on.
I chose a random assortment of Revlon creme polishes: Revlon Red (red), Royal (royal blue), Plum Night (purple), Sweet Tart (pink), Bewitching (plum), Dreamer (pale blue) and Electric (yellow). I got it wrong with the yellow though; it’s not a creme but a shimmer polish.
But after just one nail, I didn’t like the look. It didn’t look anything like my inspiration picture and I just hated it.
So then I loaded the brushes more and painted on randomly. I think it’s a bit like Elmer the elephant now. I’m still not entirely sure I like it – but it’s abstract, that’s for sure!
Here are the manicures from everyone else that is participating:
- Base: one two coat of Sinful Colors Snow Me White
