Woot - another post live from Dublin! The weather is quite nice here which is apparently unusual but I am not going to complain. I haven't taken as many photos as I've wanted to - I am not sure if it's out of forgetting but sometimes it is to have those memories for yourself sometimes, and not necessarily to show others. (As a photographer, that's pretty much paradox but ah well!) I really do believe that sometimes it's good to live your own life without having to post on social media sometimes. We're in an age of oversharing. But speaking of oversharing, I'm not done with sharing some more Rainbow Honey Midnight Garden nail art. Last time I pulled a bold one and did a water marble, this time I went with a mosaic stained glass inspired look.
For this look, I started with a foundation of white using Sally Hansen White Out and then drew some rough light guidelines using a Kiss black striper:
Then, I filled in all the spaces with the Rainbow Honey Midnight Garden cremes: Charaxes (blue), Cymbidium (pink), Viola (purple) and Tayabak (green). I made sure none of the colours touched (welp tried to, anyway):
Looks pretty rough! But then I went over the guidelines again with the Kiss black striper and outlined my nails as well. I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite and ended up REALLY digging this boldness:
And for funsies, here's how it looks matteified, using OPI Matte Top Coat:
Overall I am pretty happy with the result!
Anyway sorry I haven't left any comments on your blogs - I promise I will the next chance I get to be on the computer for an extended period of time! My vacation is a third way done and I am already dreading the end! I just have to chin up and keep living in the present. Sometimes a hard thing to do for me!
How are all of you? I hope all of you are doing well. I hope you like this stained glass nail art as much as I do! It took a while but it was worth it.
