Pink Camo!

It’s Father’s Day in the US today !  My dad is the best!  He’s what you’d call a Mr. Fix It.  It’s so comforting to know that if the crap hits the fan – my daddy will be able to fix it it for me!  He’s a woodworker and a real outdoorsman too.  He’s into camping, hunting and all the typical guy stuff.. so I thought it would be fitting to try some camouflage nails for today’s holiday!

I was googling images of camo for like ever… until I decided to just pick up a brush and go for it!  As my dad would say, ‘stop farting around and get to work’.  So that’s what I did and here’s what I came up with!  There’s no planning needed- just pick a few camo colors and start painting some splotches!  I started with a very light pink base color called Kiss the Bride by Orly.  Then I used a detail nail art brush to paint the splotches using China Glaze Dance Baby (medium pink), China Glaze Westside Warrior (dark army green) and Orly Faint of Heart (cream grey).  I also did a gradient accent nail using the same colors and some silver studs.  Lastly, a matte topcoat works well to transform it all into a smooth uniform design.  I love my MASH Matte topcoat!
