Today is my second post for the British Nail Bloggers Colour Me Crazy challenge, the colour theme this week is orange. As soon as I started toying with orange I started to think of Literary references such as "Oranges are not the only Fruit" and "A Clockwork Orange." I went with A Clockwork Orange, trying a simple accent nail to match an image I found on Google.
My orange polish of choice (not that I have many) was Mango from the Gelly collection by Barry M. I used Barry M Matt White for the dots and the eye, and a black striper to do the hat and the black dots. The laser studs were some I purchased from Winterberry Nail Art on Etsy back in November last year. I topcoated with NYC Grand Central Station.
Originally I used Wet n Wild Black Creme for the black dots, however I remembered to late that it's not good for dotting, I smudged the dots on the middle finger first time I added top coat. To correct this, being horribly lazy, I painted one coat of Mango over the original design, the redotted using a blob of black from the striper I had used.
