Hope your week is going splendid!
Today, I will be heading to Seattle for some job training and a company meeting.
What better way to commemorate Seattle than with a cityscape manicure!
OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls
OPI Skull and Glossbones
China Glaze Pelican Grey
White Acrylic Paint
Bundle Monster BM-414 (Buildings)
Bundle Monster BM-015 (Space Needle)
I wasn't sure how to start off the base for nails. I knew I wanted to have a cloudy cityscape day because it rains a lot in Seattle. I started off with a base of white from OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls and then sponged a bit of grey from OPI's Skull & Glossbones. Skull & Glossbones was a bit too light/sheer so I added some darker grey from China Glaze's Pelican Grey. I added some white sponging for the clouds with acrylic paint. I very much enjoyed the end result.
I stamped the buildings from Bundle Monster plate BM-414 and the Space Needle from plate BM-015. It was hard for me to stamp the buildings straight so some were a lopsided. My first attempt at stamping the Space Needle was a fail so I erased it with a Q-tip dipped in remover. It left a black smear but it only added to the gradient.
This will be my third time visiting Seattle and I very much enjoy this fine city!
Does anyone know if there is a Golden Gate Bridge stamping plate for San Francisco?
**Note: I did this manicure a couple of days ago. I didn't actually wear this to a corporate meeting. :)
