31DC2014 Day 2 – Aerosmith for Orange


Hi everyone!

Today’s prompt in the 31 Day Challenge is orange. I was pretty stuck for what do to for this prompt for a while. My boyfriend and I were listening to the latest Aerosmith album, Music From Another Dimension!, when I complained that I needed an idea for orange nails. He immediately pointed out the Aerosmith logo on the album was in orange and I should do that! painted-fingertips-31dc2014-31-day-challenge-2014-day-2-orange-aerosmith-logo-nailsRather than doing the logo itself in orange, I decided to go with an orange base and do the logo in black. For my base colour, I used Rimmel Cocktail Colour Shirley Temple. I used black acrylic paint and a very fine brush for the logo. The two wings aren’t very even but I don’t think it’s that noticeable and I was very happy with how it came out. Of course, no classic rock look is complete without some spiked studs, so I added a couple to finish it off. painted-fingertips-31dc2014-31-day-challenge-2014-day-2-orange-aerosmith-logo-nailsLast year I did some very cute orange nails stamped with an image of actual oranges. For those that aren’t into Aerosmith, the cuteness of the oranges might just be the winner.

    Gorgeous nails!
    You’re making me regret not to have picked that orange, it’s amazing!

      Thank you! Yes, I am SO glad I got it. I could have easily passed it by as I was just getting into nail polish and might not have realised how special it was. When I saw the collection I first picked up the green, blue, and purple ones then I loved them so much that I went back for the red and the orange 🙂
