Whew..my nails are a mess, my house is a mess, and I’m actually dreaming about nail polish. Here’s a franken from a while back, since my nails are in no condition to be shown to the world right now! With the polish removal and filing of nail tips I made plus all this alcohol hand sanitizer that we use at work, a serious toll has been taken on my natural nails. They need some paraffin wax, cuticle oil and a whole lot more TLC than I can give them at the moment!
Here’s a brown I made by mixing red and green (both Japanese dollar store polishes), equal parts of each. The resulting brown was a little warm, so I added some iridescent green pigment to it. That lightened it up and made that nice green flash. You could also add a color like OPI See Ya Later, Sailor! or another sheer iridescent green if you don’t want to add pigment. The green adds a nice richness that looked better than the original warmish brown creme.
I added some brown decals and then dotted some silver glitter polish randomly.
Sorry about my lack of updates- the blog has been on the back burner a bit as I’ve been getting ready for my big show. I’ll be sure to let everyone know how it went- wish me luck!
