Well, I'm going to an IEEE picnic today with my boyfriend, and since we'll be doing lots of outdoorsy stuff, I went with this. My trailrunner shoes happen to be this sort of green and gray, along my shirt for the day, so I figured it was a nice time to match. I'll also be surrounded by fellow nerds who will understand!
I used a few colors to do it, and I found that I should have planned it a bit better... I painted my thumb, index, and pinky solid green, and then my middle and ring with a nude color. I put the Androids on my two accent nails, but then their little antennas wouldn't show up well on the nude! So I actually went back and filled in the negative space with white. That's why it looks so messy now!
As far as colors go, I used:
- Spoiled by Wet n Wild - I Only Eat Salads
- Ulta - Sweetheart Pink
- Max Makeup Cherimoya nail art polish, in White
It was all topped with a coat of Seche Vite.
It also probably doesn't help that I was going this past midnight! I'm so glad that the Seche Vite helped everything dry thoroughly before going to bed. I hate when I get "sheet print" nails!
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. The green one looks a little derpy since I had actually hit the nail on something while it was drying, and made part of his "mouth" slide upward! Now that I know what I'm doing, I'll definitely be revisiting this idea!
