In case you're wondering why I'm jumping in mid week for Digital Dozen Does Colour Contrast week, it's because I started a new job on Monday, and have been growing out and healing a severe break/cut on my ring finger.
Today's look is a bit of a cheat using black as my contrast on this purple Gelaze Spontaneous. This was a conscious decision though, because there's nothing I like to wear more than a crisp black or white on a more subtle colour. For the look, I did two coats of the purple gel and added a black French gel tip. Once cured, I stamped in regular black polish and sealed in gel top coat.
I liked this look, and actually received a ton of compliments considering it wasn't overly complicated. Don't forget to check out the looks the girls have been working on in the Inlinkz below.
So, I was looking for inspiration for this look for Digital Dozen week and happened to watch Mickey's Twice Upon A Christmas linked here with my kids on Wednesday night. We start Christmas Specials in November! We were watching a segment that stars Minnie and Daisy as competitors in a figure skating competition. They were wearing colours that totally reminded me of Lottie Dottie from KBShimmer, and this look was born. I used two coats of the polish for my insta-contrast in a bottle and then added double line stamping stripes to represent the ribbons the characters twirl in the competition.
Weird inspiration I know, but a glitter cruelly was perfect for this week...once I thought of it. As an FYI, the Mickey's Twice Upon A Christmas is amazing! I have some more colour contrast looks coming up soon on nail tips as I kept up my freehand practice for fun while I was growing out my ring finger.
