I’ve warned you that I do all sorts of crafting…
I think I saw something like this on Pinterest, maybe, and decided to try it. Nine different polishes, in case anyone was wondering — I’m not entirely happy with how it came out, so I might try it again and see if I can get better contrasts, possibly more feathered action on the eyes, and maybe pick up some gold nail polish? I have a fairly vast collection, but there are some colors I don’t really wear and therefore don’t tend to buy. I didn’t think I had a need for gold, but I guess once in a blue moon I do.
It was also near impossible to get a decent photograph of this, which is why I don’t have my hand in the more flattering standard nail polish picture holding-the-bottle pose. Thus: My stubby crooked little fingers, (no) warts and all. And it does look a bit fancier in real life, but at a certain point you just have to give up.
I do have plans to make some peacock lace, possibly later this year. Maybe I’ll try the nails again for that.
