ARTSY FARTSY INDEED...

Well I did get down and dirty in the polish and n.a.p.'s (nail art pens). However, I am not too pleased with how my pictures turned out. My camera did not take very good pictures last night. I think it was in part due to it was 10 pm and the lights in the house were not the sort of bulb or watt that I needed. Anyway - on to the pics!




I tried to change the brightness contrast on the camera, so take your pick of the snaps above that you like best and just ignore the other ;).

Below I have up close pics of each nail and the details of each pic.

THUMB

The base was painted with two coats of NYC - Saffire. I then used my So Easy Stripe Rite - White n.a.p. and painted a ghost outline and painted the inside completely with white. Next I used Nubar NAP - 129 Black and made two little dots for the eyes and an oval shape for the mouth. Top coat was Poshe.

INDEX

The base was painted with Finger Paints - Shades of Dark. You can see in the pic that there was some cuticle drag with this color. I then topped it off with Black Radiance - Hot Steppa. This is such a gorgeous color!! It is clear with gold and copper colored glitter in different sizes. The colors remind me of fall leaves. Final coat was Poshe.

MIDDLE

This is a cat, I know the picture is b-a-d. It turned out so cute though! Disappointing to say the least. Anywho, the base was done in China Glaze - Cat's Eye (that's where I got the idea to do a cat face). Then I painted on a face, ears and whiskers using different n.a.p.s - So Easy Stripe Rite - Gold Glitter & Silver Shimmer and Nubar NAP - 129 Black. I did two dots of the gold glitter for the eyes and it reminded me of those old pins that had the cat face and rhinestone eyes. Top coat is Poshe.

RING

This is a leaf. Once again the picture does not do all my hard work justice :( For the base I used Black Radiance - Tease. This is such a pretty shade of gold, and it looks orange in the picture - just so wrong. I used Nubar NAP - 151 Emeraldes to outline the shape of the leaf. This is a green color with green glitter. I then went over the green with So Easy Stripe Rite - Gold Glitter, but leaving some of the green to show through. Topped off with Poshe.

PINKY

A witch's hat. The base was 3 coats of Color Club - Yell-Oh!, a very neon yellow color. Some cuticle drag with this, but not too bad. I used Nubar NAP - 129 Black to draw a hat shape, and then I filled it in. I used So Easy Stripe Rite - Silver Shimmer to make the band on the hat. Top coat of Poshe. This was super shiny. The base neon yellow color just made this look pop, and once again disappointing results with the camera.

Anyway, tell me what y'all think! Only 13 more days until Halloween.........
