So this was my very first attempt at something, I thought dots would be easy to start with but I actually struggled to use the dotting tool and it came out quite messy, but I did really like the colour combo, had a bit of a pop art feel to it. The drips were a lot more purple in real life. As you can see, my cuticles are disgraceful, another thing I wasn’t looking after very well!! The Yellow B/G is actually the Sally Hansen Nail Effects Nail Polish strips, they were extremely fluorescent in real life.
My nails today, Essie Neo Whimsical with Orly Instant Artist gold glitter striper. Inspired by this, couldn’t track who the original artist was, but reminded me of the Madeline Poole Style. Also later added a funky accent nail in between cooking dinner, will post pics tomorrow. P.s A tip for girls with acrylic nails, the border design is awesome for covering up the re-growth that starts showing when you are due for your refills like I am atm ;)
Even though I’m not usually into holiday mani’s I decided to get into the spirit and did this Xmas inspired wheel today. I tried not to make it too wintery looking so I could represent the Xmas spirit from down under! Should’ve just done a wheel with some VB tinnies, flip flops and some bbq’d sausages lol!!
Experimented with some floral designs with acrylic paints over CM Insatiable Passion, also sponged the background with nubar brown/gold glitter and used some chunky hex glitter applied strategically once the roses were finished.
Nails today, OPI Atomic Orange with CND Gold Chrome and black Striper, random designs except for the eye which is meant to be the All seeing eye, I saw someone else do a mani with this that gave me the idea, can’t remember who now, but if you know msg me know so I can credit. Top photo is with flash, bottom natural light under the very sad grey sky of Melbourne today, it’s meant to warm right now, but it seems Melbourne weather is staying true to it’s unpredictable nature!
