It’s not time for another one of my semi-regularly scheduled nail art posts, is it? OH WAIT IT TOTALLY IS.

I swear, I don’t show you guys half of the shit that goes on my nails, but these in particular are making me so happy that I just had to share them. They’re opals! On my fingers! I used this nifty tutorial from @basecoat-topcoat—with just some minor changes because I proved to be quite inept at the suggested method. I love how they turned out and have been wiggling my fingers around like a lunatic all day because ~look at the pretty sparkles~
