Hope you're all feelin footloose and fancy free! Today's prompt for the 31-Day Challenge was to create a Blobbicure, also known as a pebble manicure. I decided to play with some textures and tones to create this... almost patriotic look.
I pulled three Liquid Sand textures and one creme finish from OPI to make it happen.
|L-R: OPI Magazine Cover Mouse, Solitaire, Tiffany Case, Viking in a Vinter Vonderland|
To begin, I started with one coat of Viking in a Vinter Vonderland and let it dry. Then I applied a second, thicker coat.
Before that second coat was able to start drying, I used a dotting tool to apply blobs of the three textured polishes and let them "melt" into the base color.
Because Viking is such a dark purple, it looks almost black, which is why I called this look almost patriotic with the red, white, and blue.
Obviously, there's a few dodgy bits here and there, but you can definitely see where the blobs melted against one another. I'm not super happy with them, but I don't think I'm a fan of the look in general, so that's probably why. I found it most interesting that using this technique really took away a lot of the texture feel of the Liquid Sand polishes - they don't feel as much like fine sandpaper as they do when applied normally. This might be a great thing for those of you who are texture-phobic!

As always hope you're doing well, and I'll see ya tomorrow!
