I decided to go Ikat nails as soon as possible in the new year, and today is the day to share them with you!!
I like this go muchos better than my first go, and, I did this one using two of the new polish gems that my BFF bought me for Christmas!!
I am not overly crazy about the thumb, but I still don't dislike it. In fact, I absolutely love them as a whole.
Started with two coats of China Glaze Def Defying - that is just a marvelous bright green, then, I added some white blobs using Orly White Out (side note: I didn't wait long enough for Def Defying to dry, because I'm impatient, so the white took on a yellow-ish tinge that I think I love more than having it had been a stark white contrast!), then I used some China Glaze Creative Fantasy (love), and China Glaze Liquid Leather.
Ikat nails are extremely simple to do, yet they do pack quite the punch in appearance. I have a feeling you'll see this pattern another time or three throughout this year. I just adore it!
I wanted to also add in this photo of Bennie getting a massage from my sister. Degus love being massaged, specifically around their face/jaw and ear area - Ben is a massive suck. I will one day capture a photo of him doing the arm movement so you can massage/scratch in his "armpit" region. Ooh, and his super orange "tic tacs", as we like to call them, means that he is a healthy goon. Despite having "strange" creatures as pets, I couldn't be happier with Bennie, Fonze, and Cow. They are all that is left of my soul.
Take care and I will see you all again soon.
