Yeah, I know, okay? St Patrick’s Day nail art in NOVEMBER?! So I’m seriously behind in my nail art blogging. Accept it and move on.
Aren’t they just the cutest? ^o^ After the success of my reindeer nails at Christmas, I was encouraged by a fellow writing critique group member to do some piggies in honour of our critique group. See, we’re the HOGS – yes, like the pig. It’s short for ‘Hearts of Gold’ (aww!). We like to call each other piggies, and collectively, we are a sty.
You know that feeling you get when you stumble across a really incredible idea? It might not be your own, but it’s something so great (to your mind, at least) that you simply have to try it? That’s how I felt when I found these zip water decals.
I have a thing for rainbows. I mean, who doesn’t? They’re just so pretty! But it does seem somewhat surprising for me. My wardrobe tends to lean more towards black, black, and – you guessed it – black. But I guess I’m a closet colour-lover (is that really something to hide???).
I have a problem with red. Nail polish, that is. The ones I have are all thin, translucent things, that take many coats to gather any semblance of opacity, and even then you can still typically see your smile line. Oh, and that’s not the worst of it. They don’t photograph well. As in, you can try taking thirty shots in different light using different filters on the camera, and only one will turn out remotely close to the original.
