My result was pretty freakin' awesome, especially considering the fact it was my first time trying it, and I didn't even use a toothpick!
I also really enjoy loose strokes of paint and that whole feeling, which I think I managed to capture purrrrty dang well. I tried to find an example of what I mean, but the world (or Google) decided to conspire against me.
Here are some pictorial testimonies of my nail art:
|Since you couldn't really see the thumbs, I added these two in. And, this one that I painted is my favorite ^.^|
|I kind of hate this webcam I am using, because it makes my expressions look 10x worse. ANYWAYS, Sally Hansen Salon Effects nails in Bling It On! YAY!|
I found this in some of my great-grandma's sewing supplies/fabrics and immediately wanted to be with it FOREVERRRRRRR, even though it is really flimsy and won't be able to hold up much (which is actually kind of cool, considering the fact it discourages me from bringing my whole room with me to go hang-out with someone).
On Tuesday one of our local thrift stores had an AMAZING sale, where all clothing was only ONE DOLLAR. Yes, incredible! I whirled through the store and found many LOVELY gems!
P.S. If anyone actually read all that, I luvvv you ^.^
Moving on to decor...
A few months ago I looked at my walls and realized most of the stuff on them is stuff I was into when I was like, 11. I decided to redecorate and take down ALL the stuff I had stapled, tacked and stuck onto my walls (mostly just the stuff next to my dresser, though). My room is pretty much in post-apocalyptic state, and I'm in the process of putting stuff up and all that.
This summer I've been feeling really crafty, so I've made a lot of rad stuff, like bracelets and bags and pillows and flower crowns...
Tavi and/or Rookie Mag).
IN OTHER NEWS, I watched What's Eating Gilbert Grape last night and IT WAS AWESOME! It renewed my faith in Johnny Depp, and I totally think it was Leonardo DiCaprio's best role ever!

Thanks, Gilbert, for all the inspiration.
