Pick your portal

I got this lacquer from Vivid Laquer as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it, I have some friends that are crazy for Portal so I did some nail art based on it.
I started with 3 coats of China glaze Snow and I added 2 coats of Vivid Lacquer Pick your Portal to all nails but my ring fingers and thumbs. For those I used Santee Neon Aqua and Neon Orange to free hand some Images from the Portal game posters. I did take some liberties with the design on my thumb but I wanted it to match my portal figures.

Overall I am pretty happy with how this turned out. I am not terribly good at freehand work but I liked this effort. I do wish I could find a bright orange that was a bit more opaque. I tried 2 other oranges before I decided to go with the Santee. As a result I had to go over the design several times so the orange side turned out less crisp I guess than the blue. I wish there were a stamp for Portal I'd buy it :)
