Without further ado, here's my APC inspired nail art based off their eMOTIVe album cover:
Here's a shot of my nails next to the album artwork:
Total time to complete: 2hrs!
Colors used: Essence Be Optimistic, China Glaze Riveting, Peachy Keen, Happy go Lucky, H&M Sunset Dreams and black acrylic paint.
I painted my base with Essence Be Optimistic which is a copper metallic then a coat of Riveting to create the burnt orange base. I then sponged some black to create the faded black and orange in the background. I was trying to recreate that watered look. You can do that with watercolor paints; just not with nail polish.
The peace sign is from BM-07 stamped with the Essence color.
I created the perfect circle symbol first by doing a white base the sponged a gradient with yellow, orange and red orange. I painted in the two crescents using acrylic paint. I had to do it twice. The first round didn't turn out so well. I did this nail art this last Saturday and I have been wearing it since.
Also, just in case you missed my Puscifer nail art, here's the manicure I did when I saw them in concert.
