The Digit-al Dozen does Brands: Kiss My Face Sunscreen

For today's Digit-al Dozen design inspired by a brand I'm focusing on an important everyday product - instead of a restaurant (finally, I've been so hungry these past two days!). Florida is the Sunshine State and I am very fair-skinned, which means I have an alarm on my phone to tell me to re-apply sunblock every two hours [all day long]. Check out my nails inspired by the current sunscreen I'm using - Kiss My Face!

About This Design

This is a much simpler design than I had originally sketched out - I was planning on extrapolating more of the shapes from the packaging into the design (like the boxes and type). But instead when I was done with the suns, I just left them that way! I love how bold and graphic this is with just two colors. Sometimes simpler is better, and these suns put a huge smile on my face.

Polishes Used

My base color is 3 coats of OPI In My Back Pocket, a lovely shade of orange polish but with a sadly slightly-streaky creme formula. Then I freehanded the sun half-moons (half-suns?) with a yellow acrylic paint; I don't own a yellow polish precisely this color and didn't want to suffer through the frustration of trying to mix polishes over and over (it dries so fast that way, wahhh).
