PURPLE CRUMPET FAIRY CHALLENGE – The 31 Days of Christmas
Day 3 - Snow Globe
Well I feel like I have started with 2 MAMMOTH fails in the Purple Crumpet Fairy 31 Days of Christmas Challenge. They required art work that was beyond my ability, and I have been pooping myself about my Snow Globe.
I did seriously contemplate copping out and just doing a skittle of wintry colours, all layered with CG Snow Globe, but NO, Crumpet riseth to the challenge! So instead I spent half an hour wandering around the house trying to find a circular shape that would be just the right size for a snow globe. Obviously, everything was just a little too big or a little to small – aaarrgghh!
Overview – this features 5 nails, 4 of which feature the same snowglobe, taken from different perspectives. The thumb has the whole, the index finger the top half, the middle the bottom half and the pinkie a super zoomed-in version of the top half. All the nails have had 2 coats of CG Sea Spray which is not only beautiful but PERFECT for winter manis, and the accent nail has 1 simple layer of CG Snowglobe.
Each nail features the same snowglobe – a ickle Cwismas twee J I wanted to do something clean and simple and Christmas tree came up a lot for Google images. The alternative was a snowman, but as I did that yesterday AND there’s a snowman day coming up … well, not an option.
Colours used –
· Tree = CG Starboard
· Outer rim of globe = SH White On
· Base of globe = Barry M Gold
· Silver tinsel, star and baubles = CG Cheers to You, a really fabulous metallic silver
· Purple baubles = Milani 1 coat glitter in Purple Gleam
· Tree trunk = Orly Instant Artist in Chocolate
· Snow = Nubar White Polka Dot
Phew – for me, that constitutes MASSIVE planning and consideration lol! I hope this “art” was tolerable for you J
BTW, if you're wondering why some photos are pre-clean up and pre Nubar, it's because Crumpet has learnt that disasters are ALWAYS around the corner, so I took some halfway-through photos *just in case* :)
It’s not too late to join us – just click here and do as many or as few days as you want – no pressure, just fun J
Enjoy xx J
Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
