I just got striping tape so I wanted to play with it a little bit. I realized that these look watermelon-y now but its getting colder so why not bring a little bit of summer back.

*read in fransworth’s voice* GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!

My food service job has me on a call in basis so I can paint my nails again! However I have painting this semester so said nail art will be destroyed in 4 days max. That being said I am going to attempt to do some nail designs again.

DEAR FOLLOWERS!

I have started a new job in the food service industry which means that I cannot paint my nails anymore. This rather kills this blog.  That means that I will be on haitus until I have more than a day off of work to have nail polish on, or (more likely) I will start up when I take my semester job on campus. I miss painting my nails more than you know, but I far prefer to have a job and make money. I will return with a vengeance when I can paint my nails again.

Doctor who nails take 2. description of nails from thumb to pinky as follows: 11’s jacket/bowtie, dalek, tardis, 11’s screwdriver, fez. The screwdriver looks a but like Loki’s staff to me. This post also includes bonus paper TARDIS that I made today. There is also a doctor, complete with mop/ fez, that I made to go with it.

metallic triangle nails. I got a couple of new metallic colors last week and wanted to try them out. I like the slightly tribal feel of these. Painters tape is your best friend on this one. it keeps the middle triangle nice and clean while you paint the outside color on.
colors used:
Pure ice jaguar
Pure ice silver mercedes
Pure ice magic
Pure ice iced copper
Sinful colors black on black

Watercolor/Impressionist/Jackson Pollock nails
I saw a post about doing water color nails with a ziploc bag so I thought I would try it.
I used white as a base. I then taped my fingers to make cleaning up edges easier. Then I placed globs in various sizes and colors (orange, turquise, and green) on my nail in a vague design. Then I immediately put a ziploc over the nails and lightly applied pressure to smudge them. This had to be done a few times to get the right look. Then I removed the tape, cleaned up the edges, and applied top coat.
By the time I was done they looked very impressionistic period to me, that or something out of a Jackson Pollock painting. Basically the art history buff in me came out and gave them an artistic style period for a name.

Pink and Brown with dots. Simple to do and they look sophisticated yet edgy. I had just pink but it was far too girly for me. I added the brown and dots to make it more me.  Colors: Magic and Love by pure ice
