Spring Challenge - Day 3 - Picnic Tablecloth

Third day of the spring challenge myself and Esme of Nail Addict are going to do; and I was excited to do these before I started :P

Base Coat: Nail RX - Stuck On You
Base Colour: NYC - Nail Glossies - 215
Stripes: Barry M - Bright Red
Acrylic Paints
Top Coat: Models Own - 3 In 1

First I taped off vertical lines and painted with a sheer red polish, and then taped off horizontal lines, and painted again. I honestly thought this would do the trick making the overlapping squares dark enough to stand out; but I had to go in with a dark red acrylic paint to darken up the squares a bit.

And then I couldn't help but do some sandwiches. I was going to do sandwiches originally but then talked myself out of it; until Scott talked me back into it :P The 'ants' aren't how I thought they would turn out. but I like them all the same :]


I hope everyone is having a good Tuesday :] Don't forget to check out Nail Addict to see what Esme came up with :]


Edit: Forgot to include this :]
