Happy Halloween Monster Nails!

Oh my, so much Halloween, I can't help jump on the bandwagon.  I had a hard time deciding what to do and surprisingly, my male co-workers and friends have been really helpful!  I wasn't about to use makeup to make it look like my nails were torn off like one suggested as I have had actual nightmares about that and I now get really depressed when I break a nail *breath* but I like the idea of monster nails.  As I've been having fun with my nail art polish lately I thought I'd try my hand at happy monster nails.

To start, I painted my thumb, middle and pinkie fingers with Orly Dayglow, my index finger with Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet and my ring finger with Joe Fresh Orange.  Next, using L.A. Colors Art Deco nail art polish in black, I freehanded the monsters.  I used the end of a paint brush to make the eye circles as all my dotting tools seem to have disappeared lately.  Viola!  Happy monster nails!  On a side note, I've actually had a few people think that these are stickers or pre-made nails so yay! 







The Verdict:  I think I'm going to have to do more of these types of nails.  I like having happy nails.  Happy Halloween!

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!
