Hello beautiful people!!! I am so sorry I have been absent this week. I really didn't mean to but you know... life always get in the way of the fun, Isn't it? But I try not to dwell in it too much. I am here now and that's what important, right?
So Jennifer of Jen's Nail Files reached a huge milestone of 2,000 likes of her facebook page, so she is celebrating with a nail art contest. The idea is to take inspiration for some nail art from one of Darling Diva Polishes! Think of one of her polishes' name and represent it in a nail art. So here's my entry, inspired by Dangerous Driver:
So I started with two coats of Julie G White Orchid, my go to white creme. However, I wanted some rough feel to it, so I topped it with a franken that I made. It was actually suppose to be my attempt at making a white holo polish, but as you can see - it is a fail. It's not quite white and not quite holographic. It did suit me wonderfully here though!
Then I used a large tape that I placed on my nails to cover the middle, and I stamped the checkers pattern using Bourjoise - Bleu Asphalte polish, a blue-ish dark grey creme. I added the red stripes with my striper brush and China Glaze - Xtreme Thrash and then freehand painted all the cars. And that crooked stop sign. Sorry, apparently I can't draw a hand... The polishes I used for the cars are all from Chic - Metalix collection. In case you need the specific names, I used Citrine Gold, Red, Smashing Blue, Green Olive and Pinkish.

And have a lovely week!
