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.

Today I realized I am very lonely. For the past few days I’ve been pretty trapped in my house for lots of reasons, and I felt like I wasn’t practicing at all. So I did what any witch would do and decided I needed a way to bring the spirits to me.
Not very long ago I did this for a friend who was searching for a companion, but it’s been entire years since I even thought about doing it for myself again. I used to spend hours making these as a child, and I still enjoy it.
I took a pretty plain normal box with a glass top and put an electronic candle in it. I lined it with fleece so it would be inviting. I put in a tip of clear quartz, a mirror, a small sea shell, a nail, and an unoccupied vessel. (See pictures) I did this in hopes of attracting a new spirit to come around for a visit or a stay.
I tend to put in very generic objects so the kind of spirit that is attracted is a surprise. Of course this can be changed depending on the sort you want to meet. (Leave flowers for fae, red fabric and a mirror for a succubus, etc.)
But please, before you start anything, check and double check your protections. Inviting the unknown to hang around can be risky. Also please keep in mind the physical things that might hinder your experience. If you have a problem with ants in the house (like me) don’t put honey in the box. Just don’t. You’re smart people.
Use your creative side as much or as little as your like, use what is around you, and of course your intuition is your best tool.
