You know that point in your nail art life when you cannot walk away once you’ve painted your nails a simple colour? You have to add something to it, and it’s almost like you’re physically forced to do that?
Yeah, I’ve reached that.
After wearing Tess (looky here, said she, in an eerily Jar Jar Binks- like voice) and loving her, but still, Tess appearing black under the nail art almost all the time (despite me KNOWING she’s emerald.) I reached for another gorgeous, complex shade by a-england – Dragon.
So I stamped these fun yin-yangs and won A BIT with the nagging nail art junky in my head – I did a 3:2 so 2 nails are a roaring Dragon in all its bare glory.
(using Amy’s terminology, which I always enjoy spotting in her posts – 3:2, 2:3, such a cool way to state: three nails stamped.)
‘Like sunlight glinting off his iridescent mossy green scales, the fearsome Dragon lays basking arrogantly, awaiting his due.’*
Also, I filed my claws pointy for the first time ever – REALLY pointy, not almond. It’s fun, it’s very different.
Pros? Easy to scratch an itch.
Cons? Tights turn into silk wispy webs all of a sudden. (And mine are black, proper tights. When they see pointy nails, I swear they transform into wimps.)
In other news, I’ve been playing with my new camera – I wanted better quality photos, DUH, always a good thang, and it’s interesting to be able to capture holos and such. I don’t know if you can spot the first post I’ve used photos from this new camera in, a few posts ago, but I hope you can – hopefully the nail porn is better.
I cannot believe I’m flying home at the end of this week for CHRISTMAS. Again, time FLIES LIKE A BITCH.
PS Remember about entering my giveaway lovelies – only 2 days left, and it’s INTERNATIONAL and I really want to send someone these awesome bottles of nail polish before Christmas.
