A lot of small hitters came out to play for this one!  Started with a 2 coat base of Material Girl Guilty Conscience — truly, it was almost perfect in one coat, but I was so put off after that 4-coat Essie fiasco the other night that full coverage is where it’s at right now.  Once that dried, I drew in some black outlines in Wet n Wild Black Creme, then filled the cherries and hearts with:

  • Migi nail pen in hot pink (same one from the previous mani)
  • Art Club Cosmic Creature
  • Art Club Red On Red
  • Art Club Mochalotta
  • Art Club Neon Orange (for some hilighting in the stems)
  • Sinful Colors Be My Valentine (jelly red)
  • ZOYA Tangy (leaf hilight)

See, I can still do it without acrylic!  :)

    Thank you! The shading was actually super easy — since that Sinful Colors striper was all jelly/transparent, The darker shaded areas really only have a little bit of polish over the black, where the hilighted parts are more of the Art Club red folded in with the SC to make it more opaque/brighter on the black base. Magic!
