Do you ever do that thing where life is changing and you're all like "yayyyy" but at the same time, "holy crap what is going on, what is happening"? That's sort of what's happening to me but ah well, when there's a will, there's a way. Also nails. Always nails. Today I finally get a chance to do Shitty Nail Art Monday since I have been off Monday for the last couple of weeks. With that said, I don't rrrrrreally think these are shitty. They're pretty fun actually! I made a gradient with the cremes from Rainbow Honey's Summer of 199X collection!
I used OPI White Alpine as a base to start. With a cut piece of kitchen sponge, I painted on the colours: Rainbow Honey Mint Flavor, Rainbow Honey Tessie, and Rainbow Honey Apple Kid. I've been recommended to use a make up sponge, but last time I did, I found that it sort of fell apart and left little pieces of sponge on my nails. When applying, I just lightly went up and down the nail just to give it some blending. It's still not the best blend but I think it's OK for my standards, haha. I also reversed the gradient on the ring and thumbnails as "highlight" nails.
Here's my gradient before clean-up:
And here it is after clean up, with a coat of Seche Vite:
There were some spots that you could see where I screwed up, and the polish was being pulled back up by the sponge - probably because I didn't put enough polish on the sponge. Anyway, I figured now was the perfect excuse to try out the limited edition Rainbow Honey Special World polish created for Dee's birthday! I got #19 out of 100. I believe this one sold out super quick - and I am glad I got one! It's awesome! This reminds me of Lisa Frank:
Did you get your hands on Special World? Does this scream Lisa Frank or what? What other nail art would you make from the Summer of 199X collection? I never knew it would get the creative bloods going! (ALSO DID YOU WATCH BREAKING BAD LAST NIGHT? BECAUSE OMGGG HOLY SHHHHIIII...)
