31DC2014: Day 06 Violet Nails
Those poor unfortunate souls…
I’ve been dying to paint Ursula for awhile. This one inspired the whole theme of painting various villains for these color prompts. I actually quite like Ursula, if she teaches you anything at all in this movie, it would be that you should read the fine print before signing any forms.
The base for this one is a new polish from piCture pOlish Pandora. Isn’t it just stunning? All photos are taken in direct lighting (what it would look like under the sun) in order to capture this beautiful holographic.
The wonderful Allison of Born Pretty sent us a few nail art items for review and we will be sharing them in a few separate posts. The first item up for review are the rhinestones (Item #15228). If you use the offer code DGG10, you’ll get 10% off at the born pretty store! How awesome is that?
These are super cute multi color rhinestones, at about 1-2mm in diameter. In different angles, the rhinestones change from a bright green and yellow to a lovely pink and bronze. I loved the small size as well as the shift in the color. I thought that these were a perfect addition to my accent nails and my nails still looked classy and practical. I personally like to keep the amount of 3D decorations on my nail minimal. Just a little here and there can make a huge difference, no need to go overboard.
I have a few more ideas in mind for how I would like to use these. Here is one look using grays and small pops of color to balance out the colors in the rhinestones.
Placing the rhinestones: I applied a layer of top coat, then used tweezers to place them. You might want to apply a 2nd layer of top coat after placing the rhinestones to seal them in.
I teamed up with the wonderful Maja of MllrDesign (Check out her nail art, she is crazy good!) to create twin nails featuring Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto album cover. This one has been sitting in the inspiration folder for awhile and I’ve been intimidated by the complexity to try it out. Thanks to Maja, I’ve finally overcome my fears!
Here is a solo shot of mine.
I started with a black base (China Glaze Liquid Leather + piCture pOlish Starry Night). Then I used a combination of sponging paint and painting the color directly on to create the graffiti effect. I have a full list of colors in the full post (click read more ). (I’m a little embarrassed to admit that after all the ones listed, it has barely made a dent in my polish collection. )
