My Nails are Lava-Dragon-Snakes

I love when you have a plan in your head and you are able to execute it flawlessly. I hate when you have a plan in your head and you execute it like you left the better part of your marbles in a public toilet. That is a bit like that happened here...except the outcome wasn't completely terrible.

colors used:
China Glaze Liquid Leather
Cirque Panacea
OPNL Absinthe-minded
Baroness X Tannenbaum Teal
Kleancolors Chunky Holo Black 


I had this idea that the glitter would look like scales, and this would be a bad-ass dragon manicure. Well, it didn't quite work out that way. I did a holo-as-fuck seriotype manicure, and then hand placed some glitter over top...and while it is beautifulstunningwow, it isn't anywhere near where I wanted it to be. I'm slightly disappointed and quite pleased all at the same time. 





It was, however, a wonderful excuse to take veryveryvery close pictures with my new macro lens...so I got that going for me, which is nice.

    1. thanks! The funny thing is how elusive those damnable glitters are! It looks like I only covered half my nail...but really its the whole thing!
