31DC2013 Day 21 - Inspired by a Color

In an attempt to catch up with the challenge I would like to show you a second manicure today. This is my manicure for Day 21 of the 31 Day Nail Challenge. The challenge is to be inspired by a color. I was inspired by the name of this beautiful blue Tawdry Terrier Howling at the Moon lacquer. I instantly knew that I wanted to try adding a howling wolf to it...


As I mentioned, the base of this manicure is Tawdry Terrier Howling at the Moon. The rest I added using acrylic paint, a sponge and a detailing brush...


This is actually the second howling wolf manicure that I've done since starting this blog. The first one was for Halloween two years ago. This doesn't happen often, but I think I like the old manicure more than this new one. This wolf seems to be a bit hunched over and not committed to howling. Also I'm not pleased with the blurriness around the moon. I was trying to create a haze similar to my inspiration image (see below), but sponging was probably not the best way to achieve that. I'm sure I'll be trying this manicure again at some point...





I used this beautiful image that I found online for inspiration...


I would love to know what you think of this manicure!

Thanks for looking!

  12. Thank you so much everyone for your wonderful and encouraging comments! I'm so glad that you like this manicure! I know I will be trying it again since I feel that I can improve on it! Thank you :D

    @Rebecca, definitely try it with a sponge! It gives a nice effect :)

    @Dimana, I painted the wolf with a small brush and black acrylic paint. I tried to copy the posture, etc from my inspiration photo :)

  14. Wow. Definitely art! If you don't compare so closely with the photo, the things you don't like aren't an issue at all. My favorite element is the moon and then the skyline/trees. Just amazing.
