Basically, I painted those fingers with China Glaze White On White, top coated, and let them dry completely. I then did each nail one by one: a medium coat of China Glaze Adventure Red-y, wait 30 seconds, a coat of A England Camelot. Then I took a piece of card with an edge I'd cut into "teeth" and scraped the red and black off. I let it dry for about 10 minutes to prevent smudging and then topped with two coats of Seche Vite to smooth it out.
I really like the effect. I had in my mind that it's a bit like ripped black fabric, but really it's just cool. And I love the red peaking through! It makes the whole thing just touch more sinister.
For my pirate logo I painted the design on using white fluid acrylic paint and a tiny brush. Topped with Seche for the awesome. Very happy! I would totally wear this for a few days if I could.
I drank bubbly and decorated my tree today. I really love tree decorating day. We always have drinks, snacks, christmas music and yelling at cats. Good times.
