For this final day I had to recreate my favourite manicure from another challenger. There were a lot I liked, some I couldn't do because I lacked some of the colours I would have needed. In the end, I picked something that made me laugh a lot at the uniqueness of the idea. It's also something I knew would truly challenge me!
I picked Sonoma Nail Art's Zombie manicure. Her take on it was to do a Rob Zombie manicure. Awesome, hilarious idea!
Ta-da! So what did I learn from this challenge? Well. a Couple things. 1. Tiny faces are just as hard to paint as normal faces. 2. Rob Zombie looks like Jesus. Zombie Jesus.
This is the original image that was used for Sonoma Nail Art's manicure. Creepy!
This was my reference. Hey, painting upside down is hard ok. Holding my hand the other way around to paint right side up is just too uncomfortable.
I started with three coats of OPI I Don't Give A Rotterdam (This is probably one of my favourite polishes. It's just so pretty and those gold sparkles! Ahh!).
Mini Rob (as I came to call him, whilst begging him to just -work- for me) was painted using white and black fluid acrylic paints and a tiny brush.
The blood spatter was done using a straw and China Glaze Adventure Red-y. I just coated the end in polish and blew through the straw onto my nail. I think Sonoma used a small straw, but I only had normal sized ones. So my blood spatter is a bit more.. dramatic.
And that's that. Thanks so much to Bec at Lacquer Dreams for this awesome challenge.
The next challenge I plan to take part in is a new 31 Day Challenge hosted by Nailed It NZ and two of her fellow bloggers. It starts in December, so if you're interested in taking part, make sure you have a look at the page and sign up!
