My Family Crest - Not My Best Work

So I'm always on the hunt for new ideas.  Given my bf is surprisingly supportive of this blog, he actually set me a decent challenge: make my family crest.  My family crest is actually kinda interesting, have a look at the bottom of the post.  It looks weird being the first image. 

Looking at the heart of the crest, it looked pretty simple: royal blue background, wavy white lines then a yellow chevron over the top.  Using Revlon Royal, Rimmel French White Tip Pro and Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow, I set to work.  Unfortunately, it just wasn't....good.  From a distance they look like flip flops and it's just not up to my normal standard.  Running out of time tonight, I feel it is my duty to share all my efforts with you, success or not.  Also, I'm sooo happy my original desk lamp died, the one I've been using for the past 10 days (this is about three weeks old) is so much better.  






The Verdict: So there you have it folks, not some of my best work but challenge fulfilled!  I wish I could go back in time and fix my white balance here but alas, whatcha gunna do.  Was worth a shot :)

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

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!
