Stars Galore

I got these awesome star rhinestones at this nail supply store that I go to (probably too often lol) and I've been want to use them forEVER...ok maybe not that long, but for a minute, but I didn't know how I wanted to incorporate them without it being for 4th of July nails, so I just painted and glued hee hee. Right before I wrote this post another idea came to mind, so more stars to come!

P.S. super pumped about Breaking Dawn release! whoot whoot, anyone gonna brave the midnight showing ?? I don't know if I can do it...maybe...TEAM EDWARD!

For the base of the thumb and pinky I used Orly's "Liquid Vinyl". For the base of the index and ring finger I used a base of Sally Hansen SALON's "All the White Stuff", covered with a coat of Verity's "Hot Young Green". Those four  fingers have the tips coated with Santee's "Angel Pink Glitter". The middle finger's base coat is OPI's "DS Radiance", with a tip done in Orly's "Liquid Vinyl". All tips were outlined with star-shaped rhinestones and topped with a coat of Seche Vite.

Hola! How is everyone? Ready for the weekend? I am and its first friday (downtown we have this artsy type of event every first friday)! I have totally been getting my art on! I'm in fashion illustration this semester and boy what a difference in my drawings. I'm only mid-semester and I've learned alot. I'm super pumped now though because we've started color media!! whoohoo! I did an awesome dress (perhaps I'll post??). But I definitely can't wait to see what she has us do on our last project so I can compare with my first drawing...YIKES! Anyway I was feeling paisley so I decided to give it a shot. It actually came out better than I thought. The play on color, especially that rich pink background, really help the paisleys to pop. Hope yal like them!

I used Pure Ice' "Gossip" for the base. For bottom color of the paisley on the thumb I used Orly's "Green With Envy". For the top layer and polka dots I used Orly's "Snowcone". I used the opposite pattern on all other nails. For the yellow, on the pointer and ring finger, I used China Glaze's "Lemon Fizz". All topped with coats of Seche Vite.

Here's my thumb! Heehee
