I have a thing for rainbows. I mean, who doesn’t? They’re just so pretty! But it does seem somewhat surprising for me. My wardrobe tends to lean more towards black, black, and – you guessed it – black. But I guess I’m a closet colour-lover (is that really something to hide???).
I have a problem with red. Nail polish, that is. The ones I have are all thin, translucent things, that take many coats to gather any semblance of opacity, and even then you can still typically see your smile line. Oh, and that’s not the worst of it. They don’t photograph well. As in, you can try taking thirty shots in different light using different filters on the camera, and only one will turn out remotely close to the original.
Each time I do my nails, it’s a new challenge. What can I do that’s different from what I’ve done before? What can I do that is good enough to see on my nails for days on end? I’ll be honest: I get bored very easily. Once something becomes common, it is no longer interesting.
Just as well my foil collection is underused.
This is one nail art I absolutely love ^o^ In my random nail art inspiration folder, I found a picture I simply HAD to try. Luckily, it had a watermark, so I am able to provide a link to the original: Orientalo-Graphique Nail Art. Tartofraises is the name of the French artist, and she is simply awesome.
While perusing in Cosmetics Plus, I stumbled across a new type of polish: BK’s Black Snow. It’s basically a glitter polish – no, actually, it’s more of a confetti polish. A clear base with assorted black and white bits.
I figured: cool! What could possibly go wrong?
