While everyone else was watching the Super Bowl, I was painting my nails. Now that I don’t have to worry about breaking them lugging heavy books around I can play with my polish again. You didn’t think I had gotten over that illness, did you? I thought with Valentine’s Day around the corner I would play with a theme. I don’t even ever do anything for Valentine’s Day but I thought it would be fun anyway.
An upright shot of the stamps. I’m finally getting the hang of the whole stamping thing. My centering skills are still a bit suspect.
Some silver crackle. It’s hard to photograph the silver, it’s kind of sheer.
Black crackle over the same pink and purple base. The black is a bit tougher looking.
It’s a lovely bunch of polka dots.
Copper base with purple over the top to make the half-moon design. Sorry for the yellow picture, the polish looked blue otherwise.
A more daring look. Sparkly red and black french manicure.
Some holographic, purple stripes. This didn’t go quite as planned but you can see what I was going for.
Lastly, pink with mega sparkle. The sparkle is better in person.
Please forgive the horrid cuticles, it’s winter in Michigan, so it’s very dry and I forgot to moisturize.
Just a short little post to give you some ideas for fun nails. I never realized I had so many pink and purple polishes and I don’t even like pink that much.
