DIGIT-AL DOZEN WEEK: Red/Green/Gold: Little Bells

Nothing to Disclose

Hello lovelies! Today is Day 1 of Utter Nubbily Nubbiness.


Augh!! Try not to avert your gaze. They don't bite, even if they're sort of gnarly looking. (And not the good gnarly, like Gnarly Gnails; the bad gnarly.)


I went outside the directive a bit with the base colour I chose for this; two coats of Colline du Charf. I thought I'd need three, and I probably would if my nails were longer, but for this two medium coats were perfect. I love this colour, it's so dainty and stuff. I'm not 100% sold on it as the base to this manicure, though. The bells don't stand out against it as much as I thought they would.


The bells were painted with Shirin and Filthy Rich (the little lines). The string and bell details were done with Camelot. The leaves were done with Shawn and Tracie, and the berries are Nightmaren.


Polishes used:
Quo by Orly - Filthy Rich
Zoya - Shawn, Tracie
Duri - Rejuvacote (base coat)
tiny detail brush
liner brush (which didn't save my lines, unfortunately; what a sorry state of affairs...)

How do you like these? What base colour would you have used?

xo,

J.

  3. Thank you, and I'm so glad you think so... to be honest, they got longer than I would usually like, but they still feel so strange to me, being this short! XD I'll get over it...
