Today I have a second manicure to show you, because two of my challenges fell on the same day--this one is from my weekly Cheeky Girls Challenge twinpost. This week Dina from Secretary's Nail Art and I are both using the equalizer image from Cheeky plate CH31.
Mine went through a bit of an evolution because I wasn't happy with it. Here was my first shot:
|Equalizer attempt 1|
I wanted very much to use some of my new British polish haul, non-coincidentally also just sent to me by the lovely Dina, and the Barry M Magnetic Dark Silver had a cool pattern on the magnet that looked a bit like sound waves to me, so I decided to use that magnet on Barry M's Magnetic Burgundy. I used the Dark Silver on my accent nail, but didn't use the magnet on that one. Then I added a layer of Max Factor's Fantasy Fire over the Dark Silver in order to tie it in a bit with the Burgundy (and cause I was just plain dying to use it, lol). I stamped the equalizer in Barry M Silver Foil Effect. I added a row of square rhinestones to highlight the equalizer pattern for impact.
However, the magnet pattern didn't look quite as much like sound waves as I'd hoped, and I left feeling a bit underwhelmed by it. So, I decided to add a little more stamping:
