One dollar nailpolish does not paint as well as four dollar nailpolish. I've never paid higher than that, but I can personally attest to at least that dollar amount.
In honour of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part one) being released on DVD today I thought I would paint a turtle on my nail and add a lightning bolt to it's shell. Sounds easy, doesn't it?
First try I used copper paint over my salmon coloured nails, thinking that the colours would look good together.
I didn't even try a lightning bolt on that one, it was too ugly. So I tried again. This time I used my good black polish for the turtle (and the turtle looks good!) and some of the cheap white polish for the lightning bolt. I even practised the bolt on my ring finger first.
Now I have a turtle with a big ol' smear on it.
So I tried again on my middle finger thinking that a larger canvas may help my situation. This time I used the white to make the turtle since I seem to have better control over the black. It is the best I am getting today.
I am still working on my sewing project. It isn't difficult, but it is taking me wayyyyyyy longer than I thought it would. Hopefully tomorrow.Pin It
