ABC Challenge: R is for Rubik's Cube
Howdy, everyone! I'm a late poster tonight. I like to get my ABC Challenge posts up on Tuesday evenings but I was exhausted last night and had to wait to paint 'n' post until today. Our letter this week is "R" and I thought it was going to be a super easy letter cuz everything starts with "R", right? Yeah, not as many things as I thought and a lot of them were far too esoteric or general for nail art. I surely could have grabbed a Revlon or a red and just done a swatch, but I wanted to do something more decorative this week. So, after searching words that start with "R" via Google, I finally came up with Rubik's Cube! I have a brother who can solve one of these in about 5 minutes; he says there's a trick to it, but I've never figured it out lol
Whaddya think? I think they turned out really well and a good thing, too, since they took about 3 hours! There was a lot of taping and striping polish used and, of course, after I started I realized there may have been an easier way to do it, but oh well. It turned out in the end and that's all that matters ;)
For some reason, my camera didn't like the green I used (China Glaze's Four Leaf Clover) and it's showing up in these pics as more of a mint. FLC is much more of a grass green, but you get the idea, I hope?
