52 Week Pick & Mix Challenge - 60s/Matte or Texture

Hello my loves. It's nearly Friday! 

I have this weeks installment of the 52 week challenge for you today; the themes this week are 60s and matte or texture. I didn't find these themes as easy as the previous two - gone are the days of just doing a gradient!

I'm no expert on the 1960s.. it was 30 years before I was born! But after some googling of sixties fashion and patterns etc I eventually settled on these peace signs. I painted my thumb, ring finger and little finger with W7 - Black and my index and middle fingers with Sinful Colors - Snow Me White. I freehanded on my peace sign with the opposite colour to the base - these were pretty hard to paint! Then using my OPI - Sheer Tints I blobbed on each colour over the white spaces to create a tie dye kind of effect. The I topped it off with Rimmel - Matte Topcoat to cover the matte side of the theme.

I was fairly happy with these - they aren't my best work I don't think though. I'm not sure if I have 100% embodied the 60s but I tried at least! 

Let me know what you think in the comments.

See you next time.
