I have my second pair of nail art earrings to show you! The first one is here. For this pair I used some little wooden pendants that my dad cut for me to use as earrings. They are rectangle and circle shapes and he drilled tiny holes for the earring clasps. He sanded them, but I also used a nail file to smooth some of the corners. Then I grabbed my nail polish and started decorating them!
I painted the wooden squares with black wet n wild nail polish called Ebony Hates Chris. Then I stamped the rectangles using blue Keks by Butter London along with my MoYou Pro Collection 04 stamp. The squishy stamper kinda went wooooosh sideways… you can see my stamps are a little off-center. 😦 But still, I love how the Butter London stamps over the black. I tried this combo one time before when I reviewed some MoYou London items. It looked wicked, but you couldn’t really tell since it was only on my thumbs. (here’s a pic! check out my thumb!) I just knew I had to try that black n blue combo again. So I did. I also added a few rhinestones to my earrings that I stuck on with clear nail polish. Lastly, I attached some fishhook earring clasps, and there ya have it. My Butter London Earrings.
Thank for stopping by and I hope to see you tomorrow. I have a new underside mani to show you! Then later this weekend I’ve got a gradient for our Nail Art Ideas Linkup. Ta-ta!
I watch a decent amount of prime-time cable (okay, I watch A LOT of cable) and lately I’ve noticed a definite fashion trend: almost every leading lady in the last few weeks has worn dark blue and black together! Personally, I’ve always steered clear of blue and black since the old rule is that ‘navy and black clash’. But the more I see these two colors together, the more I likey! This trend inspired me to do a color-block nail design using the following:
♥ one coat of Orly Ridge Filler as a base
♥ two coats of Cynthia Rowley unnamed neon blue polish
♥ a striper brush and Wet n Wild ‘Ebony Hates Chris’ for the black accents
♥ MASH NailsMatte Topcoat – I needed two coats to make it matte since the black Wet n Wild was super-shiny!
Why doesn’t Cynthia name her polishes? I’ll never understand that! Well, I’m gonna go ahead and name this neon Shark Week since it’s a vivid dark blue that reminds me of the bottom of the ocean. The shade really lightens up for the camera so I tried some different lighting conditions to get the blue to stay as true as possible. It’s still way darker in real life… but c’est la vie!
I have heard that Cynthia Rowley nail color is hard to find. Luckily, I received a three pack set from my lovely sister for Christmas! In case you’re trying to get your hands on some in the US… I think she found it at Marshall’s Department Store.
