OMD2, 4. Bright

So here is my post for the prompt bright. I'm calling these 'Fire Lotus' nail art...yup, I'll pretend these were planned for! After two coats of my base colour Picture Polish Tango, I kinda decided this colour was not bright enough for the prompt bright. I headed for my stash and came back with China Glaze Orange Knockout and NYC Lexington Yellow and the 'fire lotus' was born! This was all accomplished with my smallest detail brush and finished off with a little acrylic paint in black to pop the details. Once I chose my colours, I was kind of inspired by a previous look I did a long while back. I'll include that look for you below.

I'm really happy with the final look, although...with more time I would redo my pinkie. Just not as smooth looking as the rest. The picture below was taken out by a pool. I was hoping to get the neon orange to play fair...it helped a bit!

This last is the look I was inspired to recreate, and the post is linked here.

Cheers all,
