Let's Draw (with) Straws!


Day 89

Hey everyone! Today's nails are to show that you can find inspiration and tools everywhere around you- even at your local fast food restaurant or in your drawers! I decided to try using everyday drinking straws to create patterns on my nails, so here you go!



I used American Apparel Passport Blue as a base, with China Glaze TMI, China Glaze L8R G8R, and China Glaze DV8 'stamped' on with straws. :) I think it gives an interesting effect, not always circles, sometimes lopsided circles, etc, but I like it!! :) I topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Also, try to find the hidden face, I noticed it after I took the picture! :-P

  1. Neato! I love your colour combinations! Is the face on your ring finger?
    That's what I see, with a lock of red hair on the forehead.
    I'll bet you're gonna get some interesting guesses on that, mine included!

  2. Ooh, I really like this! And is the face on your middle finger? The blue in the middle of the finger looks kind of like a skull to me.

  14. GAAH! The face is kind of creepy. Half skull--half alien. I'm officially afraid of your nails (but also love love love your blog. This is just wonderful!) I think I learned the most from the marbling posts.

  15. HA! Had nobody said anything about the alien I might not have noticed, but I can definitely see it and he's actually very cute. I really like all of these colors blended together. The pattern is pop art at it's best.

  16. Wow you really can find a blog about anything on the internet can't you? Amazing! I really am impressed with all the designs you are able to come up with AND execute. My you never run out of polish. (That could be like a metaphor as well as a literal hope)
