I can't believe it's already Wednesday. Where has the time gone?? Well I have a random-and-needs-some-explanation post for you today haha. Last week I read an article on BuzzFeed about a goldfish named George. This fish (who lives in Australia) had to have an operation to remove a tumor that was life threatening. Needless to say the surgery was a success and George is expected to live a very long life :) After reading the article, I just couldn't get fish off my mind. So, I painted one (*disclaimer)...
Colors Used: China Glaze - Capacity To See Beyond, Shimmer Polish - Trisha, Acrylic Paints
First off... I friggin' love this blue! It's from China Glaze's LE The Give Collection and it's a beauty. I started with it and Shimmer Polish's Trisha as my base colors, 2 coats for both. I forgot how magical Shimmer's are. Trisha applied so easily!
Then with a detail brush, I painted George using acrylic paints (orange, gold and black). I was pretty much just winging it and hoping for the best lol. Once my fishy dried, I top coated.
When life gets you down, do you wanna know what you've gotta do?
Be like George and just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming!
I hope you enjoyed this mani. I had considered adding more details (coral, kelp, etc.), but I really wanted the pretty polishes to shine thru :) As a side note... how do we all feel about the new watermark? I am "testing the waters" you could say haha. Feedback would be greatly appreciated *hugs*.
Until next time!
