So, at the weekend, I wore these nails to compliment the dress I wore a friends wedding. The two polishes are Models Own ‘Lunar Grey’ and ‘Everyday Grey’. The dress itself was out of Monsoon, and I’m not ashamed to say I picked it up in the sale – it cost me £40 compared to the original price of £180. It’s a full length dress and hand embellished (it’s embellished all over) so it probably was worth the original price but… I can’t comfortably justify spending that amount of money on a dress that I will potentially only wear once.
I think it looked good, it didn’t look ‘out of season’ or have any damage and I was honestly lucky to pick something up as they often don’t have my size left by sale time. If push came to shove, I may have ended up taking a visit to Tesco or Asda. They often have beautiful items of clothing, that are good quality for attractive prices and fit well. Does anyone else wear ‘supermarket’ clothes?
My last few Comic Book designs were a bit messy/top coat smudged/too much going on. This time I totally toned it down and just did a speech bubble accent nail. I like this look a lot better. I took inspiration from my WAH nail art book which has some comic book nails in it. I’d never thought of just doing ‘?!#’ those kind of things before, I’ve always tried to write words and that’s maybe why they’ve always been so untidy.
I can’t decided if it looks worried about something, or if it’s about to attack. It certainly doesn’t look as cute and cuddly as I hoped it would. Maybe it just really wants to chow down on that bamboo…
(And I know Panda Nail Art has been totally over-done, but I couldn’t resist giving it a go!)
Birds in a cage nail art! (Inspired by an ornament I have in my bedroom). I quite liked the single bird as an ‘accent nail’ which I would more likely wear out than having all my nails done in the cage design.
