Continuing with our theme of celebrating The Digit-al Dozen's 2nd Anniversary, today's theme is 'china'. China (i.e. dishes and fine tea cup sets) is the ~modern~ 2nd anniversary gift according to gift-giving traditions. I haven't actually done a classic white and blue china-themed manicure yet so I was really excited for these! Check 'em out!
I based my nail design off of this photo and enjoyed doing some freehand work for this!! I haven't had a lot of time to sit down and do lots of small details so this was a nice little change of pace for me this week. Originally I had wanted to go a step further and do a broken pattern on top of this freehand floral pattern BUT I don't think the scale would work well since I have already used my teeny tiniest brush to accomplish the small stripes in this design. I'll save that idea for a different time :)
I did three coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff (yes, I finally bought this polish and can feel like a real nail blogger again now that it's in my possession) as a base coat. Then I used Sally Hansen Thinking of Blue for my main patterns as well as a tiny bit of grey and a tiny bit of gold to do some accents. I used a bunch of my small brushes to freehand this!
