Hello gentle readers.
Yeah. I know. Weird, huh? Nail art three times in one month? What's going on around here? Have we slipped into a vortex? An alternate universe? Is someone running a fever, here? It's okay. Don't panic. Everything is okay, you are safe and sound where you are, normalcy (well, as close to normalcy as it gets, around here) reigns and you do not need to run to the medicine cabinet for Advil.
I had a little fun with skittle style nail art, the other day. Skittle style nail art is something I am kind of getting into, lately. I am developing a real taste for interesting, multifaceted designs, something fun on each nail, cohesive yet not matching. Yeah... I'm into it.
I started out by applying Orly Black Pixel to my index nail, two coats. No top coat. Orly Black Pixel is a nice textured polish, I recommend it, if you haven't checked it out, yet. The rest of my nails went bright orange with Orly Orange punch.
My middle nail went dotty, spooky style with Wet-N-Wild Black Creme, China Glaze Snow and China Glaze Bizzare Blurple.
My ring finger is stamped with Wet-N-Wild Black Creme and Bundle Monster plate # 224.
On my pinkie is a coat of Orly So-Go-Diva.
Everything is topped with a generous coat of Orly Matte Top Coat.
So, I have fallen in love with PicMonkey. (No, I am not affiliated, I wasn't asked or paid to mention them) I use it so much that I am actually seriously considering paying for their Royale membership. Funny enough, I have a free premium membership, all the bells and whistles at Ribbet and I rarely use it. I just love the Monkey. One of the fun things in PicMonkey is special effects, even the free version has a lot of great options and I got down and got funky with my spookified self.
Oh, hush up. It's been a rough morning. I was up at the ass crack of way too fucking early, I had a doctor's appointment, I had to fast, no coffee, no food, no water no nothing. I'm still a little hung over from that, lemme tell ya and my brain is a bit fried out. Plus, she shot a bunch of steroids in my ass and I think they are wreaking havoc with my thought processes. Even if they aren't, they are a convenient scapegoat. Work with me, here.
Isn't this version fun? Very vampire, no? I kind of dig it. Which version do you prefer?
I went crazy making holiday themed watermarks, too. Editing. Not my strong suit. Oh! Wait until Christmas time! #sorrynotsorry
Okay, I'm going to post this before it gets too late in the day. Please don't forget to let me know in the comments which version: Normal Old Broad or Glam Vamp you prefer.
Thank you so much for popping in and reading and have a wonderful day. I'm going to go finish my coffee and bagel and open my package from Stila. My eyeliners are here! Yay! Bye!
