So here's a much delayed summer post you can sob over as you bid adieu to bikinis and welcome oversized sweaters. Face it...that's what you've been looking forward to.
As with many of the designs I've been posting, I got inspiration for this from a pattern (whose artist I'm unsure of so hook me up with the name if you know it). Somehow, the pattern had colors that I could pull almost directly from the Retro Summer collection by OPI.
These were all done freehand with my Winstonia Berry Wine brushes and the colors from this collection (plus Alpine Snow and Black Onyx). My favorite part of these might be the blending of their head feathers with their breast feathers. It's subtle, but really brings them to life.
I used all of the 6 colors from Retro Summer, starting with What's the Double Scoop? for the base.
|OPI - What's the Double Scoop?|
|OPI - Flip Flops & Crop Tops|
|OPI - SPF XXX|
|OPI - I'm Getting a Tan-gerine|
|OPI - Towel Me About It|
|OPI - Sailing & Nailing|
Sailing & Nailing (2 coats) isn't just a
So even if you're heading into fall, when that gets old and you start dreaming of summer again, grab the Retro Summer collection and get painting!
