THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS manicure 2 by this-is-a-paradox
THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS manicure 2
(10.5.14)
Done for Rick Riordan's "The Blood of Olympus" release on October 7th, the fifth and final book of the Heroes of Olympus series and the Percy Jackson and the Olympians characters. This version featuring my Camp Half-Blood T-shirt and it's closer up! : )) I tried to mimick the cover a bit, especially with the gold, which follows the design of the banner with the series title along the tops of each book, with Jason's gold coin in the middle, like the sequin I put there. I didn't use any tutorials or references for this one. First time doing ombre too!!! : )

Took 2 hours.
Colors:
-Revlon #965 base coat

-Essie “Blanc” (#008)
-Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme wear “Mellow Yellow” (#360)

-Essie “Tart Deco” (#584)
-Essie “Bikini so Teeny” (#764)

- Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme wear “Golden-I” (#485)

-Love & Beauty Forever 21 (batch code 7896 whatever that means)

- Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme wear “Invisible” (#100)

Read the book! It was great. ; )

I created a new folder for nail art, which I have been meaning to do forever but now I have a smartphone so I can upload pictures I take with it!! Exciting exciting! As for this folder, you can expect new manicures in there every 2 weeks, as that is the normal pattern of when I do my nails! : ) Thanks everybody for your continued support and I hope some of you will check out the folder as time passes. : )

Thanks so much!! That really means a lot to me. : ))) As for your comment on inking, I usually do color and stuff, but in my small sketchbook I don't. (Too lazy haha) I'm trying to learn more about shading and color, so in the future I should have lots of color added to my gallery! Thank you again for the kind words!!
