#TheLacquerRing is back for our second prompt of April! Woo! Can y'all believe it is almost May already? I feel like April completely disappeared and the days are blurring together its moving so fast. For April, Jess has picks. You may remember for our color post we all wore I Love Nailpolish Bikini Bottoms. For our design pick, we're doing Aztec Nails.
I'm totally in love with my Aztec Nails. They are so cool! I started off with a base of OPI How Great is Your Dane from the Nordic Collection.
I then used the saran wrap technique over the top of How Great is Your Dane with OPI You're So Vain-illa. I was going for sort of a rocky sandstone type look, but it reads more marble to me.
Then, I went in with MoYou Explorer Plate 01 (which is AZTEC traditional designs) and Konad black for the stamping. On my thumb, pointer, and pinky I stamped on some traditional designs. Across my middle and ring finger I stamped on an image of the Wind God. I took a teeny paint brush and Sinful Colors Snow Me White to add some definition to the image.
What do you think? I'm so pleased with how this turned out, especially the Wind God.
Be sure to check out how everyone else's Aztec Designs: Amanda, Lesley, Jessica, Nicole, Voni, Frosso, and Cynthia below. I can't wait to see what everyone came up with.
Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee
