Hiding in pink

 
 
The next in my “Hiding in X” series is pink.
When I did my “Hiding in blue”, Ana from “Mimi’s Vanity Box” suggested, that I did a similar pink camouflage, so this is for you my friend, you have been a faithful support ever since I started my blog!
This is my second attempt, you can see the first farthest below, it lacked contrast and edge, so I realized, that I had to add more fuchsia/hot pink to get better contrast, and I started out with China Glaze Ahoy!, a raspberry red/hot pink with nice glass flecks, as the base color. For the dots I used China Glaze Rich & Famous + Dance baby, Essie Lovie Dovie and OPI Pedal Faster Suzi. And I top coated to finish the design.
Da jeg postede “Hiding in Blue” foreslog Ana fra ”Mimi’sVanity Box” at jeg lavede en pink kamouflage, så den er til hende, en trofast støtte, der har været der lgie fra mine første spænde skridt her på bloggen!
Det er mit andet forsøg, du kan se det første længere nede, men det manglede kontrast og ”kant”, so jeg tænkte at jeg var nødt til at bruge mere fuchsia/hot pink for at få mere kontrast. Derfor valgte jeg grundfarven China Glaze Ahoy!. en hindbærrød/hot pink med smukke glasagtige flecks, og til kamouflagen valgte jeg China Glaze Rich & Famous + Dance baby, Essie Lovie Dovie and OPI Pedal Faster Suzi, som jeg dottede på med et dotting tool. Til sidst lagde jeg toplak.

First discarded attempt/første kasserede forsøg:
My first try became too blahh, way too little contrast for my liking – even if I added a little silver. The base Color is China Glaze Rich & Famouse and the dots/camouflage colors are china Glaze Second Hand Silk + Dance Baby, Essie Lovie Dovie + Spaghetti Strap and OPI Pedal Faster Suzi.

    1. Nail crazy - I'm hiding in the pink part of the candy store from the "sugar is bad for you" activists, hoping they aren't violent and bash the candy (and me) ;)

  6. I love the contrast in this one... especially the shimmery light pink (Pedal Fast Suzi?), which makes it perfect. :)

    2. Thank you Lydz,"you pinked" would be quite appropriate in this case though ;) - I had a terrible night coughing, coughing, sneezing, blowing my nose, still have a fever, but maybe I feel just a tiny little better this morning...
