Thank You For Not Smoking
Guten Tag, folks! :-P Today's nails are for a very good friend of mine who recently decided to...get this... QUIT SMOKING. Congrats to him on dropping the habit, however cranky he may be. :-P *JK* He's in a lovely mood, all the time...every second, yes, that's it. I tried water marbling a pale blue over a dark color in hopes that it'd look like wisps of smoke, which it SORT of does, but not as well as I had hoped. While I think that smoking is an icky habit (minus old dudes smoking pipes- those are ok because they smell amazing), I think that cigarette smoke is quite possibly one of the prettiest things ever, how it twists and turns and has that lovely bluish silver hue. Pretty. *sigh*
yes... that's Nicorette, I managed to pry some from his hands long enough to take the picture. ;)
I used American Apparel Passport Blue as a base, with Diamond Cosmetics Giddy water marbled on the four fingers, China Glaze White on White for the cigarette, Sally Hanson Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in 06 Sun Kissed for the filter end, and China Glaze Salsa over China Glaze White on White for the Ø sign. ;) It turned out ok, just not how I was hoping, but what can ya do about it at 12:30 a.m.?
YAY FOR QUITTING SMOKING!!! :) (Too many people I love have been affected by smoking, and the hell it causes) :(
