The Digit-al Dozen Does Festiveness: Lights!

 

Day 3 for The Digit-al Dozen Does Festiveness and today is lights! Sure, I have a new stamp I could have used but I wanted to try free-handing some lights and I love how they turned out! :)

I chose these colors for the lights because these were the colors of the lights we use to have on our house growing up. We would keep them up all year long because they were a pain to put up and take down! :) But we had a basketball hoop up by the garage and so all the lights around the hoop got broken and that always made my dad mad! :)

I used Essence Romeo as my base. Wanted a nice neutral so that the color of the lights would pop!


I then used a small brush and Finger Paints Black Expressionism and drew the wire. I kind of like how it looks just like this! :)


For the lights I used Zoya Sooki, Catrice Blue Cara Ciao, Nails Inc Hans Place, and China Glaze Starboard. And yes, this is the same photo as above. Having issues with my OttLite and the lighting on my manis. Sorry! >_<  Hahaha! :)


Don't forget to check out the other ladies and their Festive manis! :)
