Yo Dog, I Heard You Liked Nail Polish.......sorry

I apologise in advance for any and all meme related content in this post but come on, how could I not do it?  So here we go: I heard you liked nail polish so I put some polish on your nails!  With polish!  But not actually polish, acrylic paints!  I don't know how I'm going to hold all this polish on my nails!  Yayyyyyyy! ....sorry. I'll stop now. 

So I have an awesome friend who does this great small scale acrylic painting on shoes so I steal her sometimes and bribe her to do said painting on my nails.  She's done my cat in space, and my cat as long cat for me so far, and this time I wanted her to do me a pattern of nail polish bottles.  After applying two coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff, she did her thing with acrylic paints.  It of course came out super awesome.  Thanks Erica! 





The Verdict:  I love how this came out.  The colours in the bottles work so well with the off-white background and it just looks all-round awesome.  I only wish I could have kept it on longer.  But you know, the glitter beckons.  Thanks again Erica!

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.
