31DC2016Weekly 2: Orange

The prompt for day #2 of the 31 day nail art challenge is “orange”, so I went with a marbled sandwich bag manicure. This time, I skipped the white base colour and directly applied the blobs of orange, yellow and white nail polish over my bare nails. I thought there was sufficient coverage even without the white base.

I rather like the whimsy of the sandwich bag and other marbling techniques, and left it at this. I think this might make a nice background for stamping as well. I applied a base coat to protect my nails, and then used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow, Sun Kissed and White On for the marbling effect. I did not apply my DIY peel-off base coat (crafting glue thinned down with some water) around my nails for this. Regardless, this entire manicure took 5 minutes, including clean-up time. Here’s a close-up:
