31DC2013: Day 13 Animal Print

SHARE

I thought I had this one set from day one…after all I’m a leopard print addict.  But then just today I did a complete 180 after my fiance even commented that he guessed I would do leopard print as it’s animal print day…so instead I tried something completely different – rainbow fish scales.

I knew immediately I needed to do this with holo polishes to get that fish scale glittering effect so I kicked off with a base coat of A England Ascalon.  Then I sponged on random patches of ORLY Miss Conduct, Emily de Molly Cool, Calm and Collected and Color Club Revvvolution and Wild At Heart.

I went back round a second time adding random extra patches of colour until I was relatively happy with the mix of colours before top coating the lot.

Then I went back and stamped a fish scale design from Mash plate 39 using Ulta3 Black Satin to reach the final effect.  I now desperately want a larger fishscale plate because this design only just fit on my nails and I filed them back quite considerably today.
