I went to the theater and saw the musical “West Side Story” it was FAB. So, I had to do my nails for it. My thumb nail is actually an image I found on the web and trimmed it to the size of my nail. Putting first one coat of base coat then putting on the cut-out then two more coast on top of that to make it stick. It needs to be sealed well or, as soon as, you have a shower or wash the dishes it will come off.
For the other nails I used Sinful Colors Midnight blue for the background and then Fiji purple for the background bottom to give it more depth. Once it was dry, I use Revlon Sparkle to give it a night look (starry night) I really liked this Revlon polish as it has a vanilla smell not that yucky lacquer smell.
I really wait until all is nice and dry, even the next day I will sometimes start the detail acrylic painting on my nails. I really need to make sure that the enamel is completely dry before starting. I use Golden Carbon Black for the buildings and I use a Cadminum Yellow for the windows. Do different sizes for the buildings and windows makes it more believable.
