another watermarble and another hair color matching manicure :)
tried something new today and i think it worked out really well!
after the polish was completely dry i applied a temporary tattoo to each nail. i had purchased this printable tattoo paper for my friends circus wedding – my original idea was to be the tattooed lady. i ended up being their fortune teller and my mom went as the snake charmer. i had printed this snake skin for her nails but we ran out of time.
here’s a close up of the tattoo applied to the nail. the hard thing about this paper is that once it’s applied it’s like a sticker – not like a traditional temporary tattoo that you buy in vending machines or whatever. it’s still like a piece of paper. so once i got to this point i had to take an exacto knife and cut off the paper that was outside my nail. tedious to say the least.
i just dyed half of my hair green/teal/turquoise! i’ve had “loud” colored hair for a long time but it’s always been the underneath part. or the tips. but i decided i needed something more dramatic. and it is :)so in honor of my new hair, i colored my nails to match. teal/blue ombre. now if only i could figure out how to dye my hair with glitter!
simple mani today. matte gunmetal with a super glitter accent. i’m still falling in love with all the loose glitter i bought on an after christmas sale – i just want to roll around in it!
