The polish I used for the base of my nail art is "Black Gold, Texas Tea" by the brand Colors by Llarowe. Here are some pics:
Black Gold, Texas Tea is a gorgeous ultra linear holographic black polish. Opaque after two coats, it dried almost instantly and application was super smooth. I added a topcoat to make it shine and bring out the holographic effect even more. My nails are POPPING! I just love this color! Clean-up was pretty neat, too - no staining around the cuticles, though Llarowe recommends a good base coat to prevent the nails from being stained due to the high pigmentation of the polish.
I chose this polish as the base because it made the perfect "space" backdrop for my Captain Amelia nails from Treasure Planet. For those unfamiliar with the movie, Treasure Planet is a take on the classic Treasure Island, and takes place in the 17-1800's but with a steampunk twist. Aliens everywhere, ships fly, it's just amazing. Definitely one of my favorite Disney movies, and my son absolutely loves it too ^_^
In the movie, the captain of the ship taken to find Treasure Planet is Captain Amelia, the winning choice from the You-Pick-My-Art last Friday. Here is the design I came up with for her:
Her ship is on my pointer finger, Treasure Planet is on the middle, Captain Amelia is on the ring, and Morph is on my thumb (he's just such an adorable character, I couldn't leave him out!). I had a lot of fun with these, and am pretty happy with how they turned out :D I hope you are, too!
