Superhero Nails!

For today's nails, I actually had to fit a theme, of all things!  Every year, the advertising half of our company throws a massive themed party and this year, it's superheroes and villains.  Because I'm not the most organised person in the world, I went to get my costume from the only costume place nearby, the day before the party.  I was so tempted to go for an evil queen costume that was actually produced for an opera, it was that elaborate but an floor length red cape stole my heart.  I, then, am going as Super Developer!  Never a defect or a bug exists that I can't fix!  Never a cat video that will go un-shown!  So, I needed superhero nails!

First up, the same cloud design I used here.  Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect in Air makes an excellent base for clouds.  After three coats, I created the clouds using Rimmel French White Tip Liner, dotting on to create the clouds.  I should have followed my instinct and used purple for the writing but instead, I used American Apparel in Downtown LA for the writing.  The hero herself, that's just a mixture of polishes :)







The Verdict: Yay superhero nails!  I kinda want to do more heroes now, I really like how she came out :)

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.
