I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while! I've just been forgetful/busy/too lazy to post when I 'm on the computer. Also Uni is starting up real soon so I won't know how often I'll be able to paint and post on here because it's my first year - it'll take time to figure out my daily routines. But without further ado, here are some funky nails:
The theme is TV shows, past and present! From the thumb you have Community, Rugrats, 30 Rock, Daria and Saturday Night Live. A heap of fun to do!
Since I had done a Coldplay and Maroon 5 set of nails, I figured it was time to paint a theme of another favourite band of mine: The Temper Trap. I pondered upon what I could incorporate into it to make it distinguishable as Temper Trap nails. This is what I ended up with!
I tried to replicate the effect of their second album cover which looks like:
It required a myriad of blues and a lot of blending! Although it doesn't look spot on, I'd like to give myself at least SOME credit - it kiiiiinda looks like the cover. Nonetheless, it was very fun to do.
As has already been well established, I love having matching nails with outfits/themes. You know, things that - no matter how crazy or weird - can be wearable because of the relevance they have to what you are wearing. Don't know what I mean? Yeah neither do I.
The other day I went to an 18th that was themed rainbow. Which obviously meant I needed rainbow nails! But painting a rainbow on each nail!? Uck, time consuming. Painting each nail a different colour!? Please, way too simple. A third petty idea? No way. BEHOLD:
You can achieve a similar look by using a straw. Place a blob of nailpolish somewhere and dip that straw in! Then blow with force! At the beginning, I was failing miserably. I was just getting immensely lightheaded from blowing on the straw so hard! But near the end I got the hang of it.
