I've been getting a little bored of Konading lately (*gasp* I know. .. heh), and been trying to try my hand (heh.. no pun intended) at some experimental nail art. I did spent two years as a Fine Art major, so I should be able to put those skills to good use now. While at ACmoore last weekend, I was browsing seeing what random craft supplies I could use for my nails when I I came across these babies:
I saw the work "Holographic" and got way too giddy in the middle of the craft store isle, I'm sure people were looking as me strangely. As always you can't see in pictures quite how pretty these are, but they do have a nice rainbow holo effect to them.

Didn't notice it till I got it into Photoshop :x
Today's post is a guest appearance from...my mom's nails.hah My mom was desperate for a new mani so I decided to do her nails, I have been wanting to try doing a gradient nail for a while so I pretty much winged it with the glitter...
For these nails I basically just put a few drops of topcoat on a piece of paper from a notepad, sprinkled some glitter in it and mixed it around with one of the little sponge cubes. Then I scrapped it off with one edge of the sponge, and sponge it onto the nails, focusing more on the tips.
One thing I did notice about using the glitter was I needed two coats of topcoat, and even with that it was still a little gritty.
|You can semi see the holo here|
And here's a little look at my "setup". heh.
I also got a bunch of other glitters, and I'm thinking I may try to franken with them. Anyone out there frankened? Any tips?
What I used:
Color- Sinful Colors Mint Apple
