nautical gold


Pale seafoam!

Started off with a base of fairy dust (1 coat) and then sponged on the pink and purple on the lower half of the nail. If you look closely at the photos you can see the lunula. The polishes themselves are really sheer (they need like 3 coats for opacity) so when they’re sponged-on like this it looks really sheer and subtle. Thankfully my free edges are not naturally super white and opaque so it covered easily.

Then i drew on the seafoam with white gouache and stuck the little things on. Since I’ve accumulated quite a variety of things I thought it’d be timely to try something like this. (My friend insists I count gold and silver as 2 separate items but to save myself the guilt I count them as one because SAME DESIGN. Such self-delusion.)

Now every time I glance down at my hand I laugh ironically. This is so uncharacteristically feminine haha.

On a side note, I looked really dumb walking around with only one arm in the knit haha. Backstage truths.

Colours used:
Catrice Ultimate Nudes 02 Don’t Tell Mademoiselle
essence 173 over the rainbow
China Glaze 551 Fairy dust

Chapter 13- The Drowned.

Robyn loved the feeling of leaping from rooftop to rooftop, with her uncanny ability to jump big distances. It made her feel like it was an exhilarating run, only with the added thrill of being up high and feeling like one of those super heroes from thr Saturday morning cartoons she watched at a kit. She was making phenomenal time from her home in Savannah Central, to the meet up spot in an abandoned suburb in Sahara Square. As soon as she crossed the border into the desert-esque neighbourhood, she could clearly notice that it was a lot quieter than the rest of the city. After the wave, 75% of the Sahara Square had been deemed destroyed and no one lived on the coast anymore because no homes were left standing. The most common sights were chain-link fences around ruined buildings, where clean up crews would work tersely during the day. They were still finding bodies nearly two months after the wave. Even the bustling warehouse district near the port was quiet, no ships docked there anymore. Robyn wouldn’t describe the area as a ghost town, no; Sahara Square was like a rotting corpse, slowly being eaten away by maggots. The only part of this corpse still alive was Cacti gardens, the part of Sahara Square that had once been deemed the poorest, but with recent events it had become the richest…whilst poverty still quite common.

My outfit for the second and main day of our little Steampunk gathering at Stora Hotellet in Umeå, Sweden. 

Both Robin and I went with a Steampunk Pirate theme that went really well with the hotels antique/nautical interior.
