Jewelry Nails

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    The other morning as I had coffee I opened the embarrassingly large WSC order I'd placed, and yet again the fake pink pearl and gemstone Rhinestone Glam decals were calling my name too loudly to resist.

    This time, I wanted my nails to look like jewelry, and spent a while thinking of a silver that would look like white gold when I finally thought of Nubar Platinum.  It really is the color of platinum, so it was perfect for what I wanted.  I used two coats of Platinum with top coat, then let it dry for a bit and added my decals.  The placement's not perfect, I'm still working on that, but here's the manicure.

    Later, I got an equally embarrassingly large order from VNS that I mentioned already, which contained some Art Club kits.

    The art club kits are cool as heck - they have stripers, various beads and things, decals, they're great.  I had to dig into the Pretty Shiny Things kit because who loves pretty shiny things more than I do?  That kit's metallics, with copper, silver, and light gold glitter stripers, so I started with a yellow gold base of Nubar 24K.  I figured for playing with an art kit, I'd be better off using 24K than Chanel Gold Fiction...

    Then I just went nuts with the kit.  I had fun, and my hands are essentially a sampler of the items in the kit.

    Far from elegant, well into the realm of fun.

    Those are my jewelry nails from yesterday, and if nothing else, I had fun making them.  That's all for now, Dear Reader.  Until next time, love and nail polish to you!
