Panda Nails!

So this particular manicure has a bit of a story behind it.  I've been making it my mission lately to exercise more and to help me make more progress I've been seeing a great personal trainer.  He's so good, he actually takes an interest in my nails and helps me brainstorm ideas.  His suggestions last night were E.T., angry birds, city skyline and pandas.  That's dedication for you.  Anyway, I had to go with pandas so time for more questionable painting skill displays!

To start, two coats of Nicole by OPI "Baby" Blue from the Justin Bieber collection.  Oh how I hate myself for that, but it was on sale and a nice sky blue, so lalalala totes not Justin Bieber.  Next, I painted the head and body of the bear with white acrylic paints, followed by the face, limbs and bamboo.  And the sun.  It came out reasonably cute but I think I prefer my giraffe nails at this point.  It's practice!





The Verdict: Cute idea, needs more practice.  Also, if you're looking for a great personal trainer in Toronto who does an excellent impression of caring about nail polish, his name is Benjamin Paley and you can find more information here.

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!
