New31DC: Day 24 - Inspired by a Game

Hello loves!  So today we have Day 24 of the Crumpet's New31DC.  Our theme of the day is Inspired by a Game.  My favorite game ever is Monopoly, so I didn't have any trouble deciding to use that as my inspiration.

For my base color I used 2 coats of Layla Mercury Twilight, a silver holo.  I used this as a nod to the Monopoly I usually play, which is the Millennium edition.  This one has a holographic silver board instead of the normal green one.  Believe it or not, I don't actually even own the classic Monopoly!

The rest of this design was done with a small paint brush and my acrylic paints.  Let me tell you, those letters would have been impossible for me with nail polish... I just know they would have spread out into a bunch of blobs!

I hope you like these if you are a Monopoly fan!  What is your favorite game?


  1. This is such a wonderful idea! I would have never thought of it!!! I love it! And now I really wanna find someone to play with... Wanna visit me? ;-)
