So now that I'm all settled in to my brother's place for the next 10 days or so, I figured I should make a post to make up for yesterday's absence.There was on-flight internet, but I seriously was NOT going to pay $10 for the 6 hours I was on a plane. Sorry. On a budget and all.
ON TO THE MANI!
This has to be one of my more awesome ones to date. My friend texted me after a very troubling event knowing I needed to do my nails (it makes me feel better!) with this: "I have an idea for your nails! You could do a naughty and nice type deal, like, do a hot color on all your nails except your accent nail, where you can do a pretty neutral. Also you could do the shiny topcoat on the 'naughty nails' and the matte topcoat on the 'nice' ones. Just a suggestion. I won't be offended if you think the idea sucks."
I took the suggestion and ran with it. It mutated in my mind into "Good vs. Evil" and here ya go!
|This was an "Evil" accent nail. Devil horns made out of caviar beads. The beads were almost impossible to see without looking :(|
|This was the other "Evil" accent nail. Devil tail made out of caviar beads.|
|This was a "Good" accent nail. A halo made out of caviar beads. Oddly, this was much easier to see in normal light, but the camera hated it.|
|This was my "Evil" hand, with the "Good" accents. My middle and pinkie fingers are wings.|
(My pinkie sucked, IMHO. I wish the halo was visible, but I promise it's there)
|The "Good" hand. This picture turned out much better lol|
So, I don't have my polishes with me, and I didn't think to write down what colors and brands I used, so I'll do my best to remember.
The base white and base red are from Sinful Colors. The white had a Pure Ice glitter over it, and then the silver, which I THINK is L.A.C. The red had an N.Y.C. glitter over it, with a black/silver combo from... Hrm. It's either Color Workshop or L.A.C. I can't remember. Sorry. The caviar beads all came from the Dollar Tree and are a brand I can't make out in the picture.
I would like to say that I HATE working with white polishes. They get gloopy and hard to use waaaay too fast, and even my polish thinner doesn't seem to help :( If anyone has a favorite brand of white or a suggestion on how to keep the whites from thickening up super quick, leave it in the comments please!
On a side note, am I terribly vain or are there others who totally feel let down when no one comments on your nails? No one said anything about them :(
