In the end I decided to use one of my favourite rings as inspiration. I love how gold and royal blue look together. So luxurious. It's just a classic and even ancient colour combination, reminding me of Ancient Egypt and one of my most loved gemstones, Lapis Lazuli. I really love how this turned out!
I used two coats of Revlon Royal. I painted the white part of the eyes on using white acrylic paint (and black for the pupils). The tips and eyeliner are done in China Glaze Passion, which is a very dense, shimmery gold, and quite lovely.
Here's a shot of my ring finger with the inspiration! Love this ring. The eyes go all the way around and each one is a different colour - so you can show a different side depending on your outfit. Awesome!
This was really fun and I'm so happy with the result. Next week's theme is "Inspired by Reddit". Should be interesting!
