I've got five different ideas to show you here. First, on my pinkie, how can you go wrong with a gradient? My black is China Glaze Liquid Leather. Then I sponged on Sinful Colors This Is It and a little Milani Gold Glitz. On my ring finger, I started with a base of Sinful Colors This Is It, then with a fine striping brush on some feathery, grassy stripes with Liquid Leather, then a few stripes of This Is It on top of the black.
On my middle finger, I used some craft scissors to cut a fancy edge in some tape, then polished This Is It over Liquid Leather. Then sponged on some Milani Gold Glitz to help bring out the gold. On my index finger, I started with Milani Gold Glitz then free handed "the claw" design. Just in case anyone was wondering why I call this "the claw," it's because the colored part resembles a talon to me.
My thumb is my favorite! I seriously couldn't stop looking at it! Again, the black is China Glaze Liquid Leather, but I cheated a little with the gold. It's an acrylic craft paint. It's a gold metallic and it's fantastic! I used a small striping brush just like on my ring finger, but started from the side. I might have to do a whole mani like this. So pretty.
