No portrait of Troy would be complete without his flowing locks, and they cannot be contained on just one nail, oh no! This was so much fun to paint. I really like how it turned out, even if I am not personally a Steelers fan.
I started with a base of China Glaze Happy-Go-Lucky for a nice Steelers yellow. This is a good shade and this was just two coats of polish, which is nearly unheard of for yellow nail polish.
Here is the first pic I took of the mani underway. I got so into it that I forgot to take any pics before this point. All of the art work on top of the yellow polish was done with acrylic paint. You can find out more about my technique by reading my FAQ page.
Here is the manicure nearly finished, before topcoat.
It is always tough to look at pictures of a manicure after I have finished and have a few days perspective on the design, because I always find flaws. Like the highlights I tried to add to his hair ended up looking like his hair is grey. And I made his eyes too far apart, but these are nitpick things that really only matter to me. I still love this mani, and I really hope that it brings a smile to Dyan. :-)
