I don’t know if it’s lack of sleep or what but I am super into what happened during today’s mani.  First, started with a two coat base of the Hello Kitty Night Sparkle nail polish, a mostly black polish with some great little green/gold specs in it.  That’s not the cool part, but I did leave that layer alone on the middle finger so you could see what it looks like without any futzing.  Then I went in on the other nails and stamped some feathers using OPI Who The Shrek Are You?  and did a quick swipe with one of the Sally Hansen glitter coats (I forget which one, sorry!).  That’s not the cool part either.  I hated the stamping (just didn’t really hold up over all the black) so went in and sponged and dripped in some more Hello Kitty.  Nope, not the cool part.

THEN I whipped out Color Club Volt of Light, a super bright yellow neon that could never be called opaque, but packs a wow in a couple of coats over white.  So here’s the cool part: while the black was still wet, I mostly-cleaned off the Volt of Light applicator then did a couple of SWACK-SWACKs over each nail.  Just kind of quick F-you slaps really.  And holy moly look at what happened!

I can’t even explain it but I’ve been fascinated with these nails all afternoon, staring at the weird patterned color warps throwing the two together created.  It’s not often that I whip out the macro lens (it fits on a camera that’s impossibly hard for me to use with my left hand) but this sort of demanded it!

    They are AWESOME! when I saw the first picture I saw faces (just me?). The pinky I ser a fairy or elf. The ring I’m not quite sure but I do see something. Is it just me from the pain I’m in and lack of sleeping?

    Thanks ladies! I don’t know if I can replicate this monumental weirdo pile on, but it sure was pretty. And yessssss Amy, I was thinking that too for awhile staring at them — I saw a raven in the ring finger bursting through a cloud of green. Perhaps we are equally kookoo. :-D
