Honeybee chrome nail art

Hey honey, bee happy! OK bad joke but I just had a lot of fun making this design :D It was SO COOL to see my ideas come together like this!

For a honey-like base color, I started with two coats of Picture Polish Cherish and added a single coat of OPI Primarily Yellow on top, from the Color Paints collection (those really cool see-through ones).

The honeybee was painted with acrylic paint and I really didn't think it would look good on a smaller-than-life scale but it kind of works!
The honey combs... they were the most fun to make :D I painted the pattern with some black no wipe gel polish and cured it. Then I had the perfect base for some Gold Bullion powder from Mitty because it sticks to the gel and not the regular top coat underneath! SCORE!

I topped everything with some Masura gel top coat that I bought from Hypnotic Polish and then I just sat and admired my thought-child come to life :D

I received Mitty Gold Bullion as a press sample. Opinions expressed are 100% my own and not influenced in any way other than the quality of the product itself.
