>Here is my entry for this week’s challenge by Polish Hoarder Disorder. The nails have to be greyscale, only to be accented by the color of our choice.
For this manicure I first applied China Glaze Recycle as base color, then I stamped the flowers from m24 in my dark gray franken, and the flowers from m11 in my light grey franken. For those frankens, I started with two bottles, one white and one black creme. I poured from one bottle into the other, then the other way round, and shook both well, until I achieved a bottle of light grey and a bottle of dark grey. It was very easy and fun =)
Finally I stamped the buttlerfly image from m1 in mint green, and filled in using Zoya Ivanka. I wish I did a better job filling in, but anyway. Oh, and underneath Ivanka I first tried using a mint green shimmer, which looked kinda weird. That polish is very cloudy and looked dirty. But the shimmer is pretty strong, that’s where the neon blue-green glow around the butterflies comes from.

The title was inspired by William Shakespeare’s famous quote: “We will all laugh at gilded butterflies.”

Polish Hoarder Disorder‘ın bu haftaki yarışması için yaptığım manikürle karşınızdayım. Yarışmanın kuralına göre tırnaklar gri tonlarda, sadece tek bir farklı renkle süslenmiş olacaktı. Ben de baz olarak China Glaze Recycle kullandım. Üzerine m24’teki çiçekleri kendi yaptığım koyu gri oje ile, m11’deki çiçekleri ise kendi yaptığım açık gri oje ile damgaladım. Koyu gri ve açık gri oje elde etmek istiyorsanız, biri siyah, biri beyaz olmak üzere iki şişe oje alın. Sonra bunları yavaşça birbirine dökmeye başlayın. Bunu yaparken iki şişeyi de ara sıra çalkalayın. Bir süre sonra siyah açılacak ve beyaz koyulaşacak. İstediğiniz tonları elde ettiğiniz zaman durun. Çok kolay ve eğlenceli bir yöntem. =)
Son olarak m1’deki kelebek desenini açık yeşil ile damgaladım, ve içini Zoya Ivanka ile boyadım. Ivanka’nın altına önce sedefli bir turkuaz sürmüştüm, fakat güzel olmadı. Kelebeklerin bazılarının kenarlarındaki tuhaf mavimsi ışıltı o ilk sürdüğüm oje yüzünden.
