The Fanciest of All the Fancy Nails

Claire's is surprisingly reliable for interesting nail stuff.  At the same time as picking up the nail polish strips that were so shiny but so poorly wearing, I found the most amazing moustache stickers.  Seriously, it was not possible for me not to buy them.  As I'm not very good at painting yet, I figured they'd make the base for my most fancy nails yet.  And fancy has to be in the most British of accents - fannhhhncy.  In fact, please instruct your reading voice to be British for the rest of this post!

First up, I started with two coats of my favourite nude, Orly Pure Porcelain.  Next, I stuck on a sticker to each nail, mixing up the styles between fingers, for that personalised touch.  Next, large dotting tool in black polish, a smaller while dot and a tiny black dot, for the monocle. I then drew in tiny top hats and chains.  

While I love the look of this, I'm disappointed with the stickers.  They wouldn't sit flat and pulled up the polish underneath.  When I added a top coat, they went a bit wrinkly.  So drawn on moustaches for me next time!







The Verdict:  I know I have a winner on my hands (literally, hur hur) when it makes me do this face: :D So even though the stickers were a bit crap, I still love my fahhncy nails :D

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....

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!

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.
