Goofy ahoy matey!  Just a little colorful fun, the base on this is 2 coats of China Glaze Classic Camel with a little bit of Borghese Bronzatta Gold sponged in here and there.  Afterwards I went in to add the map elements using the acrylic paints for a quick and fun pirate map effect.

    Thanks ladies! Katelyn, the thumb was just a smattering of sand treatment, I tend to not go too nuts with the thumbs (I’m like part monkey and use my thumbs for EVERYTHING so try to keep those nails pretty short and plain).
