I love reading the blog Kind Over Matter and this week they had something I've been inspired to try. Usually i leave these things in the nice little blog post i see them in and don't bother to try them what with my crap eye sight and all.
It all seemed to go together so well though!
You see I'd previously picked up two extravagantly bright nail polish colours, back when i was 16, that my mother urged me not to buy on our trip to the US, cause I'd never use them ....that I've never used...Now you must understand, i am not a person who likes change per se, i like to be comfortable and when i find a comfortable way of doing things i tend to stick to it, not to mention like I've said i suspect I'm a bit OCD and when things are not symmetrical, even in their pattern it drives me up a wall...
SO, bright? Not something I'm comfortable with but THIS week, i talked myself into putting a bright colour on my toes, my argument was that it would almost never be within my line of vision so i wouldn't necessarily have to SEE it... and boom! I put it on and I'm like, 'psh! i was worried for nothing, this isn't bright AT ALL (the colour goes on pretty dull) then i left the house and BAM neon color BURSTS forth!
A friend of mine had previously tried the watermelon look weeks before and i saw it and thought 'Waw i kindda want one...!'
So when Kind Over Matter had this post i decided.
So here are the results of my little mini adventure :P
I must say i LOVE the Quirus Nail Polish Brand and if they hadn't closed their online store I'd be crazy and get more of their awesome crazy colours and be artsy, it's only $3.00USD bucks a pop! :D
Blurry shot but, what ya gonna do?
Here's a pic of the one done by mentioned friend NeckoCandy
Most people seem to do there water melon nail look vice versa to the way i did mine and more how NekoCandy did hers, with the straight white line but i find that when the line is curved it gives the water melon look a better pop as seen here: the best watermelon nails I've ever seen!
Oh and DO check out Kind Over Matter! It's a great and inspiring blog that has great material and posts, I'm an avid follower and i must say i will definitely have to try some of the awesome other designs they have up :)
There's quite a few i wanna try. Was discussing this with Eli and she came up with the idea of using the end of a shoe lace to get the perfect symmetrical circles for the strawberries, since i don't have one of those fancy nail art blotcher thing-a-ma-jigz. So, look out for that! :)
So all in all there you have it! My lovely fun summerie look :D!
