|I thought this was a window pane but it is actually a carved granite door sign.|
For the base I used Leighton Denny Liquid Gold. This is quite a thick polish and I found it hard to work with but thinner should sort that out. It is a gorgeous colour, it has brassy and silvery toned shimmer in the bottle which mix together on the nail making a lovely metallic shade of gold. Due to the thickness, I didn't leave it long enough to dry between coats so have some bubbling but most of this is covered with the dark grey. The grey I used was Leighton Denny Greycious. I didn't want to use a black because I thought it would be quite harsh (plus the black I have is rubbish) but on second thoughts, I think it would have been nice with black.
After doing the design, I added some black and silver rhinestones alternatively, following the shape of the half moon. I wanted to add a bit more glamour to the design as I felt something was missing from it. I don't think all the gems overpower it at all because the colours meld so well together and the design is quite simple. It also reminds me of London West End Theatres with the ball shaped lights on the signs and dressing room mirrors with lights around them.
What do you think?
