The Color Of Tidal Wave -day37

Posted on Feb 6, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 3 comments

The ocean deep blue color of the nail polish used to paint these beads is called tidal wave, looks like the color of “angry” waves. I used nail polish a lot in painting my beads because of the richness in colors aside from the fact that I love the names. Red, is not just red, it can be mustang red or strawberry red 🙂


I think it is a good idea to paint our beads in just one color for the bead swap this way, you can make something that is similar to this.


We thought it is the perfect accompaniment to the spotted glass beads we found at the Pasadena Show.  I just love this bead, it has flecks of gold, blue and pink just unusual.


And now, the winner for the blue drops giveaway!  I used number picker and it picked out number 3 among 9 participants and that happens to be Manou!  All the way from France 🙂

Please contact me for your address thank you for playing.
