#TLR Burnt Orange & #31DC2016 Metallic

Today I'm combining prompts for #TheLacquerRing and the #31DC2016. I've managed to come up with a cool design that addresses both prompts and let me tell you, it wasn't easy. #TheLacquerRing has a color prompt for today which is Burnt Orange and #31DC2016 is Metallic. I didn't want to do two separate mani's because one a day is enough stress. 

I finally landed on this look, inspired by this look from Vanity Projects. If you don't follow them, you should. They do super cool looks! Anywho, my base is OPI It's a Piazza Cake which is the perfect burnt orange polish. It's a perfect deep pumpkin orange. I did like a brushstrokey negative space look, which didn't translate well once I added the foil. 

I then went in with some nail foils in Metallic Gold and added a "stripe" to each nail. I wish I'd placed them a bit lower, but I love the way the gold isn't perfect and lets the orange peek through. There you have. Two prompts in one...BAM!




Check out other Burnt Orange and Metallic looks below. See you tomorrow for rainbow nails!

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee
