31dc: day twenty two: inspired by a song

b*tch better have my money by rihanna has been stuck in my head for like a month. it’s such a random thing to have in there but rihanna has a way of making songs that just play on repeat in my brain. good for her – that is her job after all. this has been an awkward one though – it’s real weird to just blurt out in the middle of other conversation “bitch better have my money.”

colors: opi green on the runway, sally hansen mint sorbet, kb shimmer PT young thing, sally hansen jumpin jade

31dc: day twenty one: inspired by a tv show

31dc tv showthis is the challenge that i changed. the original was “inspired by a color.” well, i did an entire week of colors and figured i could do something better with a different prompt. there’s quite a few media prompts coming up – but no tv. i thought that was strange. there’s such a wealth of entertainment (good and bad) on the television. actually, i could probably do this whole month with just tv shows! but that’s definitely not going to happen!

31dc tv show

if you can’t tell, the tv show i chose was orphan black if you don’t watch this already, start. like now. it’s okay i’ll wait…

oh good, you’re back. great show right!

31dc tv showtatiana maslany is an amazing actress – i really believe she is all those different people. like sometimes i think, there’s got to be at least two of her. like the olsen twins on full house. but instead of two people playing one, i31dc tv showt’s two people playing ten (or however many there are). that’s the only way my brain can make sense of it.

i think the alison and rachel drawings are the hardest – they look to generic in nail polish form. but the others, sarah, cosima and helena work great, if i do say so myself.

31dc: day twenty: water marble

i tried a few different methods of water marbling this time. i really like water marbling and again, it’s just one of those things i haven’t quite mastered. my colors don’t ever disperse as nice as they do in the youtube tutorials.

31dc watermarblei used my kbshimmer pt young thing for the base coat and sally hansen fuchsia power, gunmetal and invisible for the water marble. on my ring finger i tried the marble without the invisible because when i dropped that in the water it spread out sooo much – reducing the other colors to super thin lines. but when i did it without it completely covered up the holo.

i really like my middle finger. this actually came about after i started creating a pattern and it was all sticking to my needle. i gave up and was just swooshing it all around trying to get the needle to pick everything up and thought, hey that’s a better pattern than i get when i’m trying. so maybe not trying is my key to success here ;)

31dc: day nineteen: galaxy

i love galaxy nails. but i’ve done them (and will do them again). so i challenged myself to the planets of my galaxy.

31dc galaxy

31dc galaxy

i don’t know. it’s kinda silly. but kinda cute. i like the sun. i had thought about spacing my fingers out so the spacing between planets was correct, but my fingers are not double jointed, nor removable. so here’s my disclaimer: “planets and their relationship to each other are not to scale.” :)

31dc galaxy

pluto’s cute too. poor little pluto. demoted before he even took a lap around the sun. you’ll always be a planet in our hearts dear pluto.

31dc: day eighteen: half moons

once again i’ve gone literal. i’ve never really done a traditional half moon manicure – but for some reason i didn’t want to start now. this may also have something to do with my idea for tomorrow’s manicure – no spoilers ;)

31dc half moons

this is supposed to be the moon – half full. it sorta looks like it… and the night sky – some clouds – whatever. eh. the moon is glow in the dark though which is pretty fun but also scary when you forget and walk around in the dark.

colors used: covergirl nailslicks deep blue sea, sinfulcolors snow me white, sally hansen lacey lilac, spoiled black mamba.

31dc: day seventeen: glitter

i love glitter. anytime someone asks what my favorite color is, i say glitter. unfortunately i learned a hard lesson about glitter today. it does not like coloring within the lines. i did a tape manicure with glitter and i’ve figured out that the glitter should always be the base coat.

31dc glitter

anytime i pulled the tape up, there was either glitter poking out over the line or peeling up with the tape. i pushed it around enough as it was drying for it to turn out okay, but i definitely learned my lesson today.

colors used: essie coctails & coconut & hors d’oeuvres.
