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.

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!!

Nude Dotti

After seeing this nude polish in a store, I found myself rather curious. I’ve seen nude lipsticks and whatnot over the years, but I had never really seen nude polishes. I’m sure they were around – I was just oblivious to their existence.

And so I just HAD to buy the lacquer, and try it on for size. Or rather, colour, as the case may be…

Nude Dotti 01

I probably should have chosen a colour a few shades lighter – I’ve got to remember I have the shade of a ghost! But I think the nude still works on me. Especially when brightened by my rainbow dots!

It took me a bit of thinking to decide on doing rainbow colours over the nude. Though really, it’s kind of common sense. The neutral colour would make the rainbow really pop O_O

Nude Dotti 02

It was inevitable that I dotted the rainbow colours. Let’s face it; I’m a dotting addict!

I refused to take pictures of my right hand – ambidextrous Mish will never be ^^; Don’t the dots form cute, unique French tips? A beautiful, uncomplicated nail design (just a little on the time-consuming side).

Nude Dotti 03

For the curious, that is the Queensland tartan (yes, our state has its own tartan). It’s not mine – tartan’s not exactly my thing…
