IT'S MY BIRTHDAY SO I'M HAVING PRINCESS NAILS DAMMIT

Well, today I turn 27.  To distract myself from the fact I haven't done much in the past few years that I'm totally not getting old, I'm having Disney princess nails, dammit!  I found the princess temporary tattoos in a supermarket in Australia, of all places, and had to have the right occasion to wear them.  What better time than my birthday?  COS I'M A PRINCESS YAY :D:D:D

So, to start with, two coats of Revlon Silver Coin and one of the holo top coat from Etsy, same as yesterday, followed by a coat of Seche Vite cos I'm impatient.  Then, once it was dry I cut out two princesses from my sheet (Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, because they're both blonde like me) and applied them to my thumb and ring fingers.  The remaining fingers was the jewel and silver pattern from the border.  I found the best way to apply these is just like you did as a kid: peel off the outer layer, stick on, soak for 40 seconds with a makeup pad and slide off.  Add a top coat so they stay on.  Voila, princesssess :D:D:D







The Verdict:  How could I not love these?  It's not so obvious what they are so I'm fine in my male-dominated workplace (oh, being a female programmer) but I know I have princess nails! HAVE to find more tattoos now.

  3. You're a programmer? Cool! I was a CS student and nails/makeup/hair are never noticed by male programmers anyways. :)

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!

My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images! To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle
