Days 22 & 23: Inspired by a Song and a Movie
Sorry for the lack of postage yesterday, I got home late and was exhausted and I figured no one would miss me too much.
So aaaanywho, the first order of business is nails inspired by a song. I actually have two things to show you for it, and they're both frankens. The first one is a fail, the second one is slightly less of a fail to try to make up for the former.
Anyway, they're both part of my Beatles-inspired franken endeavor, and the first is called Octopus's Garden.
There's the inspiration, and here is three coats of this lumpy mess.
It actually looks okay in these pics, but it was so lumpy in real life! The base also made the glitter look darker than I'd like. If I can figure out how to make the glitter lay flatter that would be wonderful but I don't know how. :(
The next song-inspired franken is All You Need is Love.
*Sigh* I love the Beatles so much!
As you can see, all the glitter settles at the bottom. Badly.
It was supposed to be a white base with gold shimmer, except the eyeshadow I added for the shimmer didn't really work and some of the red glitter bled a little bit so it's more of an ecru-pink. I think this one would be improved by the addition of some all-over sparkles, I think I might need to add some store-bought stuff to it.
Anyway, day 23 is much better! This is also a franken, one of the first ones I made. It's inspired by a fantastic movie.
It's definitely in my five favorite movies. This franken I bequeathed Run, Forrest, Run!
click for the awesomesauce shimmer
click. You will be amazed, seriously.
It's slightly less fantastic in the shade, but still pretty.
OMG guys it's SO PRETTY in the sun. I don't even remember what I put in this, cause I didn't write it down but it might be the best franken I've made. This is one coat layered over Finger Paints Scenery Greenery.
It's just got this fantastic multicolored shimmer... it's even prettier in real life. Seriously.
So, how'd I do? I'm about ready to give up on glitter frankens since they are super hard to do! Somebody help me!
