31DC 2.0 - Paisley & 52WPNMC - '60s & matte/texture

Hi all!

Another combination post because these prompts were perfect together! I mean... Paisley and '60s... I have done a Paisley mani before, but this time it's in more autumn colours.

Today's pretties:
  • China Glaze - 1077 Call of the Wild
  • Barry M - Matte - MNP3 Caramel
  • Essence - 166 Mister Rusty

First you get the glossy photos *winks*. My base is two coats of Call of the Wild, I love this deep dark chocolate brown! On my index, middle and little finger I added a few simple dots in contrast to my super busy accent nails. I used the same dotting tool for each colour, just used less pressure to get the dots smaller, I did use a different sized tool for the Rusty dots than for the Caramel ones. Then with a small nail art brush (cheap one that I cut to a few bristles) I painted the paisley curves and used a small dotting tool for the dots and flowers. When it dried I sealed it in with G&G HK Girl top coat.

I did like it glossy as well, but the second prompt for our pick and mix was matte or texture. So I added a coat of matte top coat as well, which gives it an aged look I think.

I happily wore these last weekend and was sad to have to take them off on Monday.

More '60s or matte and textures down here!
