Having a good week so far? I hope so. I am finally feeling a bit better even though not 100% yet. It can only get better. We are now also officially in autumn so hopefully the weather will start cooling down. I don’t think Mother Nature got the memo though as yesterday was boiling!
It’s NAILLinkup time and time for a new month with new prompts . You can check out all the prompts on the poster below. Remember, the dates are just a guideline. You can also find more info about NAILLINKUP and the March prompts here.
I can’t even begin to explain how I landed up with the prompt of Balls for this month but I can tell you it was a very funny and interesting conversation between the four of us. 😉 So for Balls, there are tennis balls, cricket balls, rugby balls, hairy balls etc etc etc. Let me show you what I attempted.
Let me start with my pinky. I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Snow me white. When it was completely dry I stamped using BM408 and Moyou Stamping polish in black and topcoated. This is of course, soccer ball. On my ring finger I started with 2 coats of Revlon – Checkmate. When that was dry I used Sinful Colors – Nirvana and made an oval shape in brown. It did end up covering most of Checkmate but anyway. I then used a thin brush and Revlon – Checkmate to make the thin lines in the middle and little spots around the edge to represent a seam. This is rugby ball! On my middle finger I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Easy going. When that was dry I used a thin brush and a combination of Sinful Colors – Nirvana and Sinful Colors – Black on black to make well, hairy balls. I topcoated and hoped it would be are enough that it wouldn’t be too in your face and we can move along 😉 On my index I started with 2 coats of Tip Top – We have an green mint. When that was dry I used a thing brush and Sinful Colors – Snow me white to make curved lines and then with the same brush I made thin wispy lines on the edges. I did this to make it look a bit more fuzzy – like a tennis ball!
What do you think? Is it…..ball-ish enough? We all know I don’t really do well with freehand stuff so this was way out of my comfort zone but it did provide for quite a few giggles so it’s a total win in that department. 😉 Don’t forget to check out the other participants using the InLinkz thingum below
