Which Way?


I love tessellations. (an area covered by repeated use of a single shape, without gaps or overlapping) They're awesome. They're a pain in the ass to paint on a nail though. :-D These took a couple of redos. I think they turned out pretty awesome though, if I do say so myself. (at least I am happy with how they turned out!) I used one of the China Glaze Tronica collection holos, but it wasn't nearly as holo as I had hoped.. :-/  I bought them all when they came out, but I'm just trying 'em out now, I'm a little behind.

So which arrows do you see first? The blue ones? The black ones? For me, it depends on which nail I look at.

Tonight I made the best dinner, Chicken Tacos!  I made the tortillas from scratch, made my own sour cream (it's impossible to find in India), steamed rice with fresh corn, added seasoned chicken and cheddar.   SOOOO good.


I used China Glaze High Def as a base, with American Apparel Hassid for the black. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite topcoat.

Ever see the arrow in the FedEx logo?  No? Look between the E and the x.  Now you'll never be able to NOT see it.

  11. I love this design! I never would have thought about doing a design like this.
    And to answer you question about which color I noticed first, it would have to be the black. But I like the blue ones better.

  21. I saw the black ones immediately. I had to do a second glance to see the blue ones. I really like how these turned out. :) Thanks for pointing out the Fedex arrow. I will never not see it.

  22. I saw the blue arrows first, but I might be conditioned via reddit because I immediately saw a downvote manicure (downvotes are blue arrows. Upvotes are orange) :)

  23. INSANELY well done nails! You might need to see someone about that. I mean, you have polishing superpowers. And drooling over your dinner! Great job with the homemade goodies.

  24. This is crazy. The first time I saw it, I saw the blue. But I bookmarked it come back and comment and now I see the black 1st.. :)

  25. I saw the black arrows first, and only saw the blue after reading your description. I first read about the FedEx arrow in the webcomic xkcd a long time ago, but I forgot about it and this is the first time I actually saw it. Now, as you say, I'll probably never not see it!
