Today's post is the next in my twin post series with Dina of Secretary's Nail Art. We're on Cheeky plate 41, and we agreed to use the cake image from this plate.
A while back, I did a Warhol-esque 'pop art' manicure featuring cupcakes...so when I was deciding what to do with the cake image, I figured why not make it a follow-up on that pop art theme? If you want to see the original post, you can see it by clicking here. :)
I started with a base of China Glaze's Keep Calm, Paint On from the Avant Garden Collection, a very soft frosted mint green. Then I stamped the 'yummy' background from Cheeky plate CH42 in my pop art colors (Sally Hansen Lickety-split Lime, Brisk Blue, Lively Lilac, and Orange Impulse). On top of that, I isolated a single slice of cake from the CH41 image, and stamped it in a contrasting color. I filled it in with a dotting tool, and then stamped over it again with Konad White. Finally, I put little cherries on the top with China Glaze Red Satin (one picture shows the manicure without that final touch). Here's how it came out:
|Psychedelic cake slices make me happy|
|But psychedelic cake slices with cherries on top make me happier|
What do you think? I smudged the one slice of cake a bit, but hey, that's true to life--when you cut a cake, the first slice that comes out is always jacked up. :P
Thanks for taking a look, and don't forget to check out what Dina did with this image; you can see her version by clicking here. :)
