Inspired by my phone case!

Hello lovelies!

I'm really excited about the following post, which is inspired by my phone case. I've had my new phone and case since Christmas and I felt immediately inspired to put it into a manicure. I could however not find the right shade to match my case, until I discovered that Picture Polish "Big Bang" is a very near match! So I had to quickly paint this, because my phone case is already breaking down in every place, so soon it will not be picture-worthy.

Okay, so "Big Bang" has a ton of sparkle that does not match the case, but a little extra sparkle never hurt no one, now did it? So let me show you!

I painted over two coats of "Big Bang" with my detail brush and white acrylic paint (see here). The hearts of the flowers are three kinds of orange and yellow all mixed together to get the desired colour and carefully dotted with a dotting tool. I sealed it all in with two coats of SV (to smooth it out properly).

Although I did not manage to place the words exactly as on the phone case (I really didn't know how to and I really couldn't get the words any smaller, I'm not that skilled), I'm quite happy with the result, as the result is telling me to be ;) 

In case you're wondering, the phone case can be found on Ebay, for example here.
What do you think of my matching nails?
