Green and Pink, Who’d Have Thought?

Green and Pink, Who'd Have Thought?

Certainly an interesting colour combo!

Okay, so I get the whole complimentary colours, and adjacent colour thing, and, you know, the shades and tones business, but it has never occurred to me to pair green with pink. Ever. I kid you not. Not for an entire nail art. In my mind, these two colours have just never clicked. But when I saw a picture of this nail art, it was simply…perfect.

Naturally, I had to try it.

Oink Oink!

Who doesn’t want some bacon on their nails?

Aren’t they just the cutest? ^o^ After the success of my reindeer nails at Christmas, I was encouraged by a fellow writing critique group member to do some piggies in honour of our critique group. See, we’re the HOGS – yes, like the pig. It’s short for ‘Hearts of Gold’ (aww!). We like to call each other piggies, and collectively, we are a sty.

Delicate? Methinks So

Delicate? Methinks So 01

An interesting contrast: the smoothest polish job I’ve ever done, coupled with an unintentionally rough sponging…

Don’t you just love the moment nail polish goes on smoothly and perfectly? Well, I do. It happens so rarely, you know. And not typically with a narrow-brush polish. But that’s exactly what happened in this euphoric moment. The Revlon light purple just lay itself out perfectly on my nails. Win!

Green with Envy

Green With Envy 01

And before you think I have creepy arms with some very flexible joints, these are two pics put together :P

As far as cliché titles go, this one takes the cake. Sprinkles, cherries, the whole shebang. I know, alright? But I happen to like clichés, so…sorry-not sorry!!

Freckles

I have a serious chocolate addiction. Hard to believe, I know – a female who likes chocolate? Oh my! :P As I contemplated the myriad designs I could do to my nails this week, it occured to me that I felt like doing something yummy.

And what’s more delicious than chocolate freckles?

Ahem – chocolate jewels. Isn’t that the politically correct term for them nowadays? *sigh*

Rather than doing my own nails for this choc-fest, I thought they would better suit the Delightful Dana. She’s a sweet kinda gal :D

Freckles 02

I bought a chocolate brown specifically for this purpose. I think the salesgirl at Priceline had a nice chuckle over me – I required a second opinion for the most appropriate brown, after all.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I didn’t add some pink dots – the freckles include pink 100s and 1000s. I had to make up a pink paint (for some reason I do not own this colour acrylic) and it wasn’t exactly a nice shade (an artist I am not). Plus, the nail art looked divine without the pink, so I just vetoed it.

Why don’t you turn your own nails into pieces of such deliciousness? It’s simple, quick, and positively mouth-watering!
