This week with Artsy Wednesday we’re sticking stuff to our nails! I had lots of ideas, but ended up with this:
What it’s supposed to look like is ninja stars (shuriken) embedded in my nails, which are dripping with blood. A tad macabre, I guess, but that’s just me all over! 😛
The base is China Glaze Stone Cold, one of my new favourites (charcoal matte, cannot say no!). The “blood” is a really old thick, gluggy bottle of ulta3 Sizzling Red (it took me a good five minutes to get the lid open). I trimmed the sequin stars down with scissors, put the “blood” on, then held the star there until it stuck. This is definitely not a work-friendly look!
From the side:
I was really happy with this – I racked my brain for weeks for ideas, but none of them really seemed all that appealing to me before I came up with this! This is partially inspired by how these star sequins love to poke me painfully if they’re attached to any clothing.
What do you think?
More 3D excitement:
