Is Zit Ok?


Ok, so I KNOW these are gross, and some people are going to cringe and whatnot, but I KNEW I had to do them. :-D  I thought of the idea last night just as I was falling asleep, so that must mean it's a good one, right?!  lol  That's what I'm telling' myself.

What better use of those nail pearl things, but to make PIMPLES?!  (Granted, this is only a better use if you want zits on your nails, which obviously I do.)


I used Deborah Lippmann Naked as a base (I'm sure this is what she had in mind when she created it), and then variations of a mixture containing Deborah Lippmann Naked, Nicole by OPI Redy to Runaway Love, and American Apparel Port. I used Born Pretty Pearl nail gems to create the 'pimples', then painted over them. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite topcoat.

Go ahead and say it: Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

  20. And Google Ads (or whatever ad service it is..) is running an ad for zit cream on the left of this page... the last time I saw a combo so funny was when MSNBC ran a warning about laptop computers causing low sperm counts (i.e., male infertility = bad), next to ads for the NuvaRing (i.e., female infertility = marketable product = good)...

  26. I found you via a link posted on MUA. This mani is repulsive. I'm seriously impressed. 3D nail stuff kinda freaks me out in general, but this is just AWESOMELY disgusting.

  27. This would be a legendary prank to play on a nail tech, "YOU GAVE ME AN INFECTION! I'M CALLING THE STATE BOARD ON YOU!"

  40. Gross? Yes. The most unique nail art I've seen? Also yes!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh kitten-so realistic it made me cringe. Kudos on the realism, though!

    ReplyDelete
  42. AKA ReaderRita
    Totally hilarious!!! Can't think of a better way to use those darn "pearls".
    So, is the temptation to, um, *pick* at your nail art now double?
    (Plus, the fab Electric Pineapple suggestion from Anonymous would be a nastily great addition, though it would certainly up the gross factor...)
    Well done, Ms. Daily Nail!

  43. That is awesomely gross. It's also quite nifty and inspiring. I think it would look pretty cool if you put the pearl bumps in a line and covered them with a mattified black. It would look weird and futuristic and leather-y. This has all sorts of possibilities and not all of them so, er, gross. Still, great job.

  51. You shouldn't apologize for this masterpiece at all :D but in all seriousness, you are really creative. Nail art is much more than "pretty nails" and it can be artistic and creative and not necessarily pretty.
