The Digit-al Dozen: New and Improved - Paint Drip

Nothing to Disclose

The Digital Dozen
New & Improved

It's time for another Digital dozen week! This week, the prompt is New and Improved. Well goodness knows I need improvement! So We can either do a new-to-us technique or improve upon one we've done before.

So for my first mani, I've chosen a paint drip mani. I've done one before but honestly I'm not even sure it made it onto the blog. Yes, it wasn't great. Although, I do tend to show my fails, so it might have. Sometimes I just forget I have one I haven't shown you though.

I'm still not thrilled with this one, but if we do this prompt again next year maybe I'll try again!

I used a base of Salon Perfect Sugar Cube with acrylic paints for the rest. Rather cartoony, which makes it passable I think. It's certainly not what I'd call realistic.

So there day one in the books, bay-bee!

Check out the other great New and Improved manis from the DD gang in the links below!

  1. It's great! You managed to put so much detail in there. It even looks like it has shadows!

  2. I like it! It definitely looks cartoons like which is really cool.

  3. I like it! It definitely looks cartoons like which is really cool.

  4. I think these look great! Your drips have an almost 3D look to them, it's really cool!

  5. Looks awesome! I think we need to do this again; so many methods I haven't tried yet. I think I could do new and improved month!

  6. Paint drips are one of my easy downfalls as well, I can never get them to look 'real'. Gah but I think these came out fantastic! I much prefer the cartoony feel they have.
