Day 16--Color Opposites!

Hi Everyone!! Thanks for coming back after yesterday's horrible debacle of a water color manicure!  Today is Color Opposites in the Crumpet's Nail Tart's 31 Day Challenge.  This sounds sort of easy but honestly there is a reason whey they are color opposites!  Color opposites don't really go together, you can't really gradient with them--ok to be honest I didn't try to gradient them lol!  In doing some research on color opposites I came across a picture that I just loved!  AND I had a plate image I could use!

Here's the picture

Isn't this cool and refreshing looking???

Here's the mani I did
I used two of the colors from the Color Club Take Wing Collection, Sparkle and Soar and Sky High
And let me tell you it was hard for this die hard Green Bay Packer fan to wear Chicago Bears colors!!!!!

I used BM308 for the image.  It was a little tricky to guess where the orange slices would line up and some aren't centered great but overall I like this!

Here's a pic with the mani and the picture together


Let's check out tomorrow's theme!
A new technique to you--I've already done two techniques I've never done before for this challenge--saran wrap and water color what else is there???? Wait I have an idea!  We'll have to see if it works tomorrow

Be sure to see what the rest of the Tart's did for their color opposite

    1. I'm really happy with it too Gosia, I thought about gradienting yellow and purple but knew that would be a train wreck lol!
