Yep, this happened.  And yep, I’ve been sitting on this one awhile; honestly, there are a ton of ideas that I’ve either been sitting on or will continue to do so… I don’t want to tackle the really fun stuff that I’ve been looking forward to trying until I know I’m getting to a point where I’m good enough to tackle it, you know?  So this one tumbled around in my head for months, and I really like how it turned out!  Things got a little wonky on the peppermint (dang you swirls!!!) but otherwise I feel good about how it looks.

I started with a coat of Kleancolor White and then went in with acrylic paint for… everything.  There was no way I was doing this one with nail polish.  Once I had all the colors down I put on a clear coat, waited for that to dry, then used Wet n Wild Ebony Hates Chris to add some detail and lines, finishing it off by adding the background in China Glaze Shower Together.
