#31dc2013 - Day 6: Violet

Violet, you're turning....violet! Sorry couldn't help myself. Today is day 6 of the 31 day nail art challenge. I lurve day 6, because purple is my favourite colour! Yippee! This is my hands down fav mani of the challenge so far. I cannot get enough of these new Pixie Dusts, the colours are so vibrant, its like glitter for grown ups....mmmm fancy!

Today's design features:
  • Zoya - Carter (violet Pixie)
  • China Glaze - Liquid Leather (black)
  • OPI - Can't let go (dusty purple Liquid Sand for index gradient and thumb reverse gradient)
  • The purple ombre was done by mixing OPI - Funky Dunky with Barry M - White. I mixed it 3 times with less white in each version as the purple darkened.

I was inspired to do this mani by @HeyNiceNails. To do the claw/teeth shapes I painted them on with a small brush in white first. After they were dry I then painted over them with the custom purples I had created. I made sure to overlap into the black a bit so that you couldn't see any white sticking out. I then used a small brush to define the shapes and clean up where necessary. I really, really, really love this design and will definitely be doing it again with other colours.  Until tomorrow..........
