31DC2015 : Day 5 – Blue Umbrellas

Hi, all! Today’s post is going to be even lighter on words than usual. It was rather rainy on the day I set out to paint this, so umbrellas sounded like a good idea.

I started with a base of 2 coats of Zoya Lillian. It’s a light robin’s egg blue with a slight hint of green to it.

I freehanded each umbrella using:

  • Index finger – Zoya Oceane (a deep turquoise with a silvery glass fleck-ish finish)
  • Middle finger – Sally Hansen Make Waves (medium aqua blue with greenish gold shimmer; interestingly, it has a pink shift at very extreme angles)
  • Ring finger – Zoya Rebel (metallic sky blue with silvery shimmer)
  • Pinkie finger – Zoya Jo (metallic periwinkle blue)

I added details using Nail Rock Velvet Navy (which came with a pot of navy flocking powder that I put on my thumb and proceeded to spill across my desk, leaving little fibers on all my other fingers…) and Essie In the Cab-ana.

That’s all for today! Thanks for looking!
