Hey guys! Can you believe it’s August already? I know you’re hearing that from pretty much everyone. It just seems like yesterday I was painting the design for the January color scheme. Crazy how fast this year is going by. Today, I have the design for the August colors to share with you.
The colors for this month are Need Sunglasses?, That’s Hot! Pink, and Got Room for the Blues. I decided to throw in Alpine Snow and make a comic themed design, because I couldn’t figure out what else to do with these colors (besides a gradient of sorts).
I started with two coats of each color (I layered Need Sunglasses? over white), then added in the dots. Then, grabbing one of my nail brushes, I started painting in the “bubbles”. I did two different designs — the first one had a white base with colored dots, and I kept each nail the same color. Halfway through that design, I realized I should have used the colors for the base. So, here is attempt two.
I topped it all with OPI’s Matte Top Coat. I’m quite pleased with how this design finally ended up turning out. Thoughts? Let me know what you think!
