Polish Days - September Theme - Geometry

The theme for Polly Polish's 4th Polish Day is 'Geometry' based on the fact that it's back to school time.  According to Wikipedia Geometry is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space, righto, glad we got that sorted.  Googled Geometry images and you know how it is on Google, you go from one thing to another and I ended up with Geometric Images.  I'm not very artistic so decided the best way forward was to make my own water decals.

So here's my interpretation of 'Geometry' using my home made water decals.




 This is the 'googled' Geometric Image I found, as soon as I saw it I knew it was the one and would be great as water decals


Printed two copies of the image onto the special water decal paper


Cut out some nail shapes



Painted a coat of top coat to seal the image


Base colour used L'Oreal Calypso Blue (277) a very sheer pearlised turquoise, one coat


Et Voila!




My water decal technique needs improvement, but overall I'm pretty pleased with the result.  If you want to see what other Bloggers did check out the links below, enjoy x
