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.
