Artsy Wednesday - Inspired By A Print/Pattern

Hi guys!! It's Artsy Wednesday time again and this week's theme is inspired by a print/pattern. I chose stained glass pattern (originally I saw an awesome tutorial by pixipolish here) and I own a pair of tights which have a stained glass pattern, so this counts I think! For this look I started off with 1 coat of OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls (an off white creme), once that was dried I used a toothpick to draw on the glass pattern with OPI - Black Onyx. Using another toothpick I coloured in a few of the squares using 5 colours; CND - Anchor blue (blue creme), China Glaze - In the Lime Light (neon green), China Glaze - Orange you hot (neon orange), Orly - Passionfruit (watermelon colour creme) and Orly - Glowstick (neon yellow) all followed by 1 coat of Cult Nails - Wicked Fast. Here is my attempt!

(Please excuse if I left any nail polish on my skin, or there is a large gap on the side of my nails, i'm not very good at clean up with a brush.. woops!)

I hope you like this design :) From afar it looks really eye catching and interesting! Don't forget to check out the other lovely ladies who have done today's theme! Thanks for reading :)
