So the plan was for this to include falling leaves and acorns and exciting things like that, however the glitter gradient (if you can even call it that) took so long to dry, I had to leave for work. And inevitably it ended up getting chipped, so I took it all off. I did think the base was pretty enough to deserve a picture by itself, so fortunately I do have something to include in this post, even if it is a little pathetic.
So here is another possible entry for the Essential Nails Competition, but I don’t think it’s going to be the one. I started off doing the usual dotting tool scale effect. I liked it, but it just wasn’t ‘wow’ enough for me and resorted to adding a glitter top coat. Unfortunately it turns out it looked better without the glitter, whoops!
So I purchased these dried flowers about a month back but I almost felt daunted to use them. Like ‘How do I really use them?’, ‘How do I make them look good?’ those sort of things going through my head. Also ‘Flowers aren’t appropriate for this time of year!’, I hear you say but remember it’s spring/summer somewhere and flowers can be Autumnal too, as I bought some funky looking orange/red blooms in Stirling at the weekend. (Check out my Instagram or Twitter for a pic!) So here they are the nails, I’m undecided on the result…
So I have this throw in my living room, and I maybe have a bit of a crush on it. It’s so cozy and cute, but it serves no real purpose nor does it match the colour scheme but so what. Sometimes it’s nice to just have to have things you like right? Anyway… I thought it would make some cute nail art, and be seasonally appropriate. My new white (a brand called ‘Jess’ from Poundland £1) is pretty thin, it takes loads of coats to work as a base so I went for the ‘reverse’ design.
So I’ve been clinging on to my ‘summer colours’ as it’s been amazing weather for September/October, however the leaves have changed and they’re dropping off so maybe it is time for change. I love using my nail tape to create triangle nail art, you need patience and time but it’s kinda therapeutic (for me anyway!). Also why is glitter never as pretty in pictures as it is in the flesh, boooo.
P.S. Talking of change, I feel it’s time for me to join Twitter/Instagram. However I’m nervous, eeepp. Is it worth it? Do people care? What do you ‘tweet’ about? Am I better joining one or the other instead of both? Help!
So I didn’t have anything in mind when I started this nail art, I just knew I’d like to use some Autumnal colours seeing as I still seem to be in summer/spring mode. When my mum saw these she said they look like a sunrise/sunset, so there we have it!
P.S (I’m super missing my daylight lamp, I still need to move it into my new home asap!)
So I’ve done this design before as a Halloween theme but I’m really into wearing autumnal colours just now (I wonder why, it’s not like it’s November and everything is all oranges and browns at the moement…) so the colour combination was an obvious choice. They remind me of turkey feathers though, anyone else? Just me?…
