Week one is inspired by Michelangelo. Although I know of Michelangelo, even know some of his works, I wasn't quite sure what to do (short of a penis, since he is well known for his male nudes). I searched through images and decided not to go with a literal inspiration. This is what I chose as inspiration.
Thought about doing columns, but decided to go with the scallop at the top instead. Here's what I came up with.
This started with two coats of China Glaze Ingrid. Let's see a flash photo in order to see Ingrid in all her loveliness.
Ingrid is a lovely brown scattered with a golden shimmer. She is one of those complicated polishes. She looks a deep dusky, muddy brown in some lights (as shown in the first pic) and golden brown in others. I love colors like this, not a polish everyone would wear.
Finally I added the scallops with OPI What Wizardry Is This, one of my favorite textured, polishes. Simple, but elegant. Check the other Michelangelo manis.
