Layered Floral Nail Art - Digital Dozen Day 4

Thursday, March 12, 2015

It's Day Four of the Digital Dozen Nature Week. I decided to try a new technique. Well, I am sure someone has done it, but it's new to me.

I decided to see what it would look like if I layered designs between top coat. So, it's sort of like a pond mani... but clear.

I started off with a base color of Elevation Polish "Storm in the Morning Light." Then I painted the leaves and stems with metallic green acrylic paint. Then I applied a coat of Seche Vite. After that dried I applied the light purple petals and then another coat of Seche Vite. I repeated that for the dark petals and then the yellow centers. It really does give it a three dimensional look.

I may have to try this with different designs. I kind of like the illusion.
