Urgh, today is just not a good day for nails. Not only did I cut myself twice on the cheese shaver (in addition to the two other times I've done it) but both cuts were on my photo hand. Acetone + fresh cuts = owies. To top it off, the design I had in my head for Australia day didn't work out that well and I feel like I've cheated if my glitter doesn't line up properly. I can't even re-do it cos I can't face the acetone again! So we're all just going to have to deal with less-than-amazing Australia day nails.
I thought about doing Australian flags but it felt too hard so instead, the call of the wild Australian: Aussie, aussie, aussie! Oy, oy, oy! Believe it or not I've heard it in bars all over the world. To start, I applied two coats of the greenest green I have, Revlon Posh. Then, using my usual technique, I slapped the glitter on. I couldn't work out which way round the pieces were supposed to go to sit together properly so I cheated and spaced them out a bit. I used a gold Sharpie on my thumb but it smeared under the top coat, so I left out the super close up today.
The Verdict: Urgh, I hate everything about this, including the white balance and exposure on the photos. And my hand hurts. Blerg. Happy Australia Day everyone. I'll be less complainy tomorrow.
Don't knock yourself too much, the fact that you had the patience to line up the glitter is one skill I have yet to achieve! I just tried my first glitter placement type of deal, and it definitely wore on my nerves.ReplyDelete
Awww...I find it pretty even though you didn't like it. I like how the glitters are arranged and thanks for your patience. Happy Australia Day!!!ReplyDelete
