31DC2016 - Day 27 - Inspired By Artwork

Hey everyone!

Ok, I kind of really like these. Yes, my colour choices might not be spot on, but.. PLEASED!

HERE is the link for the artwork, but I will toss the photo in here as well.


 I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Formula X White Matter
  • OPI Casino Royale
  • Orly Glitz
  • Essence Gold Foil
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

This was a lot of acetone/dragging work.. but I was pretty obsessed with these. And I was pumped that I still had large chunks of gold foil kicking around.

That is all for today! See you again tomorrow!

Hey everyone!

Slithering in under the wire here.. phew! Kind of lost track of the day.. no real excuse.. just derp.

HERE is my inspiration.


 Well, despite the fact that it looks like crap cobwebs.. I like the colours. Win!

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • OPI Gelato On My Mind

31DC2016 - Day 24 - Inspired By A Book

Hey everyone!

A couple weeks back, I bought the book 'In A Dark Dark Wood'.. I decided to start it some time after 9pm.. and stay up until just after 1am to finish it.. and I had to be up at 5am-ish to get ready for work. Genius, I am not.

This book was fairly captivating to me (obviously) - was it a literary masterpiece? No. Was it completely predictable? Yes. But, I had this need to finish it. There was no stopping. And that makes it a good book. And worthy of having the cover art inspire some nail art.

At first I hated these. My lines weren't crisp and clean like the cover art. Then I reminded myself that this was an inspiration thing - not an exact replica. That, and it is the thought that counts.. right?!


 I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • OPI Black Onyx
  • Formula X White Matter
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today - see you all again tomorrow!

And I did.



I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Formula X White Matter
  • China Glaze Treble Maker
  • China Glaze Sunday Funday
  • OPI Color So Hot It Berns
  • OPI Black Onyx
