31DC2016 Day 2: Orange with Freehand Gold

Painted Fingertips | Orange with freehand gold for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the 31 Day challenge and as I mentioned yesterday, I don’t love today’s nail art. I remember having a tube of gold acrylic paint among my other paints as a teenager, and noticed that it had a different texture than the others. That was confirmed when I recently bought some gold acrylic paint for nail art. It may be partly because I bought cheap craft paint instead of artist’s paint, but it definitely has a runnier texture compared to my other acrylics and I had a hard time getting a fine line like I’m used to – especially if I added more paint, wanting to darken a line – it’d just spread out! Oh, well. It’s still an orange freehand nail art! Painted Fingertips | Orange with freehand gold for the #31DC2016

I may not love the final look, but I am definitely a fan of the base polish! It’s le flame by le polish. On top of the lovely crelly base, I freehanded the pattern with gold acrylic paint. Painted Fingertips | Orange with freehand gold for the #31DC2016

It’s not too bad, but I’d’ve been happier if it had come out the way I imagined it! Oh well, luckily the gorgeous le polish is there to save the day. Painted Fingertips | Orange with freehand gold for the #31DC2016

In previous years, I’ve done orange with orange slice stamping, and some pretty cool Aerosmith nails.

Tomorrow’s theme is yellow, but after that we’ll be back to the colours I’m more comfortable in! Take a look at some more orange nails at the links below:
