Digital Dozen does Decades - 1960s First man on the moon

Day three, and today's free hand nail art was a real struggle.  I must have spent about 30 minutes on just that one finger. That's ridiculous, especially as it doesn't look that good in the end!

For my base I used Cirque Hatch. It's such a unique polish and I notice it has made lots of bloggers top polishes for 2016 list.  I thought it looked just right for the surface of the moon, being a whitish grey sort of colour with all the grey flecks through out.

The moon boot foot print was painted with acrylic paints, I don't used them very often, but it was easier for this design as I was able to scratch bits I didn't like away, unlike with nail polish, once that is down you have to remove the whole nail to fix it up.

  2. That's such a great idea! Great little hand painted foot print and I'm loving that base. I can see how it made the top list of favs for bloggers in 2016! I've never tried any Cirque polishes, but perhaps that'll change hehe

  5. I just got a Messy Mansion plate with that footprint image on it. Hatch is perfect for a lunar surface!
