Stained Glass (for Ryah)

Ryah dreamed it, I painted it.  I have no idea if it was what was in her dream, but it was what was in my head (and on the Internet).  And thanks to Kari for encouraging the color.

Colors used:

Base pinks was a mix of Orly Passion Fruit as a base and China Glaze Sexy Silhouette sponged on top.  In the stained glass partitions, I painted and then sponged for texture China Glaze Solar Power, Sky High-Top, Frostbite, Four Leaf Clover and Breakin'.  For the Tulip fingers: China Glaze Bahamian Escape for the blue circle, a mix of China Glaze Salsa and Japanese Koi for the Tulip petals and So Easy Stripe Rite Neon Green for the leaves.  Over each finger, I used Orly Rage (a metallic/foil) applied via sponge to give a little bit of light effect for the stained glass.  I then did the firm black outline with So Easy Stripe Rite in Black, and applied two coats of Seche Vite for extra glass shine!

do you think you could take a picture of the brush you used to pain the stained glass sections?

This is exactly what I dreamed. It reminds me of Beauty and the Beast. Love it!

To shortnails, I actually painted the colored sections with my regular polish brushes. The black lines were made with "So Easy Stripe Rite" polish. It is a polish just for striping. Click on the link from the post, and it should bring to to a page in their website.

I also use striping brushes like these

Good luck on your search!

And Ryah, I am so glad you like the post, it was pretty fun!

Truly awesome! I agree with Ryah that it's like something from Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Certainly one of my faves of yours so far!
