For this, I copied the pattern of the Juvenile Emperor Angelfish. Why so specific about the juvenile part? Because they actually change to look completely different as adults. (I think they look nicer when they’re younger!)
Doing this sort of ‘theme’ thing, I’ve actually been surprised about how wearable some of the designs have been. What do yous think?
I’ve fashioned my nails into the pattern of a snowflake eel (sort of). What do yous think?
I don’t use my caviar beads very often, mainly because they’re a little impractical. I don’t like how rough they feel, and the beads don’t stay on that well – but maybe I’m doing something wrong? On only two nails though, I can almost handle the feeling of them.
So, I thought I’d try something new. Maybe kind of ‘theme’ months, where I’d do some nail designs relating to a specific thing. I have a few ideas drawn up but thought I’d start off with Marine Fish. Fitting, because I work in Aquatics and I’m an avid fishkeeper (although no marine tanks.. yet…).
First one, pretty obvious! An Ocellaris Clownfish.
I matted my polishes as it was all just too shiny!
(Sorry it’s such a poor quality photograph)
I’m usually not one for rhinestones, but today I thought ‘hey, why not!’. I think it would have actually looked better if I’d put gems on all my nails. And my ‘purple’ glitter top coat, wasn’t very purple! I’ll maybe try it again with a different colour combination.
This is quite a cool nail varnish that I picked up at a market stall in Newcastle. It’s a W7(?) polish called ‘Salt and Pepper’. This is a totally quick and simple design, two coats of ‘Salt and Pepper’ and then dot with black. Hey presto!
I got this gray from an Avon book and was dying to try it. In the bottle it has a kind of shimmer to it, and has a very slight almost lilac tint. It applied nice and smooth and didn’t dry too fast on my brush (which can be a total pain if that happens!).
I think I quite like this colour combination, although there’s still a bit of me going ”Oh no, that’s nasty.” What do yous think?
