Hey everyone! My first post of 2016, I'm excited to see what this year will bring for me and for my blog, but today I start with these super cute octopuses (yes I had to google the plural for octopus). It seems right to start the year with a design I'm super proud of. These were inspired by Julia Heffernan, more specifically this design she posted on Instagram. I knew straight away that I wanted to do a design based off it, I adapted it slightly but I tried to stay true to the design as much as possible. I hope you like them as much as I do. I posted on Instagram about how sad I was to take these off, I actually only got to wear them for around an hour before I had to move on to something else. But at least they will forever be immortalised with pictures!
Once dry I used Avon - Roses Are Red, OPI - Thanks a Windmillion, Barry M - Sky Blue, and OPI - Is Mai Tai Crooked? for the colouring of the octopuses, mixed with acetone to give them a gradient effect.
Then I used OPI - Dont Mess With OPI for the leaves, and Deborah Lippmann - Walking on Sunshine for the yellow. Finished off with a coat of Seche Vite
