First Attempt at Freehand Stripes - Need a Better Hand

Urgh, looking at these photos does not make me happy.  I picked up three new Sally Hansen Hard As Nails colours the other day and I've been racking my brain, trying to think of a way to use them together.  I did initially try marbling but it was a messy disaster and I abandoned it.  Next I thought I'd try to free hand stripes.  Not good either.  I still like the combination but the execution is just terrible.  I wanted to post this though, just to show an evolution of an idea, I guess.  One day I'll find a good use for these.

Used below is Sally Hansen Grey Area, The Real Teal, Caribbean Coral and my favourite silver, Celeb City.

  1. I just bought Celeb City and Caribbean Coral(I think, it didn't have a sticker) earlier this week. The current manicure I have right now is Caribbean Coral and gold accents. I really loved the coral in the bottle but when I started using it, it was a thick, gloopy mess and more red-orange than a pretty coral. If you want to see it, my name links to the post I made of it on reddit.

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go. 

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop .  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
