Heavy Snow Fail…

So in my head this design was so beautiful – unfortunately it didn’t turn out that way on my nails… I wanted to have a sponged, snowy back ground with a touch of glitter and then different sized pearls to look like falling snow in the foreground. What I got just some weird, pearl mess. Maybe if you could scrunch your eyes up and look at it, the would look more like a snow blizzard? Thanks.SnowFail

Bubbles in the Stream…

So this is a design I did a while back but wasn’t happy with the photo. It’s a little out of focus so I held it back from being published. However, I’ve not really had time to paint anything new so I’ve dusted off it’s cobwebs.

I think it looks like bubbles in a stream? Or maybe when a male Betta Splendens blows a bubble nest? I’m honestly not on drugs or anything…

Burnished Metal…

So I thought this design started off quite cool – I used some left over nail wraps and made a burnished effect with a fan brush. But then my silly brain said to me ‘more is always better, why not add some pearls but not just a few, a whole bunch of them!’ and that’s when the design sort of went south. They don’t even make sense as to why they’re there! But I kind of like it in a messed up way. Yes, No?

Cinderella Pearl…

This took ages to dry as I had to apply and re-apply top coat after top coat to make sure the pearls a) wouldn’t fall off and b) catch on anything because that feeling creeps me out. But, totally worth it! I think it’s quite classy and elegant looking without being too boring classy if that makes sense… I also had the comment that it would be lovely for a wedding!


Look how stumpy my nails are, that’s what I get for not wearing gardening gloves… 😦
