Icicle Nails

Hi all! Happy Sunday!

No stamping challenge from Adventures In Stamping this week, I have family up so I'm sitting this one out :]

Today I have Icicle nails for you! I started these with a white base, added some striping tape and sponged over a mixture of acrylic paints to form the bricks, then I used acrylic paints for the icicles themselves. Basically you can see no polish!
Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Base Colour: Rimmel - French White
Sponged Colours: Acrylic Paints - White, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna
Icicles: Acrylic Paints - White & Phthalocyanine Blue
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Advanced Hard As Nails

Sadly I forgot to wrap my tips when I did these, and they started peeling off in the shower later that night :(

I'm not sure If i'll be very active over the Christmas period, so if not; Merry Christmas to those that celebrate :]

    1. Before adding the icicles I was trying to get photos but the sun was hiding! Just having the brick pattern was pretty awesome looking!
