Fairy poop

Since I'm on an artsy-fartsy kick, I am going to force myself to come up with different and creative nail designs this entire week. I'd forgotten how much fun nail art was. I'm actually a little excited! Whee!

So today's art-fart is tame, but I thought it was pretty.

Also I totally forgot to take a bottle shot. Forgive me, I'm a sad excuse for a blogger. :C I'll try to remember to edit one in later.

Please don't click on these pictures. My hands look awful. There's red residue in my cuticles from Cajun Shrimp yesterday and there's a huge chip in my index finger and little hangnails on my middle and ring fingers that I couldn't even see in real life... but anyway.

I used only one (one!) coat of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Fairy Teal. Let me just rave about this color for a minute. It is gorgeous. Such a dreamy, dark teal... I could get lost in this polish for days. And only one coat! That just makes it fricking amazing. Not to mention fairies are cool.

Then, I thought gold would look lovely, so I whipped up a homemade dotting tool by shoving a pin into on old pencil eraser, and it worked pretty decently. It's like a bunch of pretty little fairies pooped on my fingertips. The dots are in Milani Gold Lamé.

I'll now rave about Gold Lamé for a minute. This is probably the most loved color in my collection. I've used about a third of the bottle, which is a lot for me. It's kind of weird because I've only used it for a full manicure two times, I think, but it's so useful for designs because gold looks good with everything!

Anyway. Not too out there, but it's pretty, I think. You?

  1. We should join forces: your frajitastic nailicles and my stuperific artsy fartsy light box should make quite the pair. Plus, I have accumulated a substantial-ish amount of nail polish since last you visited.

  2. Would you like to exchange something? I need to get rid of Cajun Shrimp. Also, I don't know what frajitastic nailicles are.

  3. Nice combination! I can't say as I've ever noticed Milani Gold Lamé--is it a current color?

  4. This looks pretty. It reminds me of Egyptian princesses.

  5. @KarenD: Thanks. I'm pretty sure it's still available, since I don't remember it being part of a collection. I'm still working on nail polish terms, but I believe you'd call it a core polish, since I checked their website and it's listed there.

    @Sonia: Why thank you, how regal.
