Warehouse 13 Nail Art
Backstory: I had been seeing all sorts of awesome nail art on the internet, and party food and drinks, and I decided I wanted to play with nails and drink rainbow colored champagne. So I invited a bunch of friends over to my house. Some people tried nail art from various website (cutepolish on Youtube is a great source), some people just tried different techniques, and I decided to try to come up with something based off of the television show Warehouse 13.
For the other hand, I decided to do a pocket watch (based on the artifact used on the show, Duarte Barbosa's pocket watch). I figured the chain could wind across the other nails. This I also freehanded with the various tools and polishes.
What I learned: Working with the dotting tools was pretty interesting. I can see how it makes a difference between using brushes, toothpicks, and dotting tools. I am not too bad at painting the nails on my right hand using my left, at least, not as bad as I could be.
What I might try next time: I saw a nail design where the design was done in paint on a ziplock bag, with a clear coat, that was used like a transfer. That could be cool.
Final Thoughts: I had a lot of fun having people to my house, and we had a lot of fun messing around with nail polish.
