Today’s prompt for the Pirate Challenge from the Challenge Your Nail Art group is “Treasure Maps!” Since I totally took the easy way out in yesterday’s “gold” post, I decided to actually do some art today!!!! I started with two coats of China Glaze Don’t Honk Your Thorm which is a nice nude color. Then, I cut out holes in a makeup sponge so that when I dapped polish on, it would be inconsistent. I used China Glaze Mahogany Magic for this. Then, I did it again with Don’t Honk Your Thorn to blend the two colors and give the nail a bit of a distressed look. I wanted my treasure map to be old!!
Then, I used a teeny tiny bit of black around the edges and dapped that on with the used sponge to distress it even more. Finally, I used a nail art brush to draw on treasure-mappy items. I used China Glaze White on White for the dotted line, China Glaze Seeing Red for the “X” and Formula X Black for the mountains. I gave it a map top coat because I’m pretty sure treasure maps aren’t glossy…even if it’s just treasure map nail art! lol!
