I've been off work for 2 days due to the blizzard that hit our area. Tomorrow, my mission is to trek through the frozen, snowy tundra of Southern New Jersey and dig out the restaurant. I'm not looking forward to going out and being blinded by nothing but white and grey.
The perfect remedy would be for Spring to miraculously appear, but since that won't happen, the next best thing would be a green mani...*and* some color on top of that...*and* it has to be something beautiful, shiney, sparkley, and, andandand...
Can a little mani to do all that? I think so- especially if the inspiration source is the epitome of beauty!
My mani comes nowhere near the quintessential beauty of the Peafowl (or more commomly, Peacock), however, the similarity is there, and that's all I need.
Lots of pictures. As always they're clickable for ginormous viewing.
Base color- Rimmel, Camoflage- 2 coats
Fauxnad plate A18
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, Malediction
Konad Special Polish, Blue Pearl(?) why don't they label these?deb (as in deb Shop clothing store), Purple
The fauxnad image I used, and the one to the left of it are very tricky to use. Oddly, polishes of the jelly type, and shimmers work better than thick creme polishes. I had to thin out the Konad Special polish a lot for it to work.
Some afterthoughts- I wish that I had used a polish with a purple flash instead of the deb shimmer. I'm thinking that ChG Liquid Leather may have been a better black for this image, but I've used all mine up in frankens.
My right hand turned out better than my left. I believe it's because I had less layering of image upon image.
My cuticles are still an unsightly, bloody mess. Thankfully, I found that polish thinner was a painless way to do my clean-up!
