Laid-Back 31 DC: Silver

Today is the second day of the 31 day challenge and the theme is Silver. I've been dying to try out my new silver studs and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity.

I've got a new and unimproved look going on for today's post. I found out I'll be traveling for work all this week and next so I had to break out my old laptop and say goodbye to reasonable computing speeds and my beloved Photoshop. My attempts to create my usual watermarks in GIMP tonight did not end well as you can see. Five googled tutorials later and I'm still just as confused.

I'm glad painting this manicure was much more fun than tonight's photo editing attempts. I started with my base coat and then layered 2 coats of Spoiled, Daddy's Credit Card. I wanted the studs to pop so I added a stripe of pink- Spoiled, Fuzzy Dice and then applied them with an orange stick dipped in clear polish. I finished it all off with a coat of Seche Vite.

Check the links below to see what everyone else came up with today.

  1. I like the thumb! And the nice contrast between the silver and the pink!
