Hey yo wassup all. ;)

I don't like to post art work and the like very often, but am all a flutter after doing some creating tonight for an article in NAILS magazine, and thought I would share my mini-gallery. I had 3 themes to work with: embossed, eyelet, and text messaging.

So here is the official showing, cheese and wine will be served afterwards....

:green:




I am frequently inspired by work I see done by other geeks, so I thought I would take a turn since I was already at it... ;)

Fantastic work!
The yellow one is my favourite, I think I'll do my nails like that the next time, if you don't mind!

Thanks guys! The yellow one is my favorite too actually- I drilled three holes in the nail, then snapped various colored eyelet hooks into the holes after painting it "Hot Pop Yellow", then after it was dry I ran a ribbon through it! I put a dot of topcoat on the knots so that they wouldn't loosen. The leaf is a real leaf! It's a treated leave dipped in copper- I cut it to fit the nail, and when the polish was tacky, just "smushed" it on. No topcoat on it, I wanted it to stay textured. The "alligator" nail is a layer of red enamel, then a layer of black, when it was tacky I took a corner of a plastic bag and drew lines by pressing- no top coat on this one either for texture. All others were just hand painted, except for the one with the embroidery iron-ons glued to the nail.

Glad you are enjoying it! I have paint all over my hands this morning, and topcoat, and some glue... lol. It was fun though ;)
