This week with Artsy Wednesday we're sticking stuff to our nails! I had lots of ideas, but ended up with this:
What it's supposed to look like is ninja stars (shuriken) embedded in my nails, which are dripping with blood. A tad macabre, I guess, but that's just me all over! :P
The base is China Glaze Stone Cold, one of my new favourites (charcoal matte, cannot say no!). The "blood" is a really old thick, gluggy bottle of ulta3 Sizzling Red (it took me a good five minutes to get the lid open). I trimmed the sequin stars down with scissors, put the "blood" on, then held the star there until it stuck. This is definitely not a work-friendly look!
From the side:
I was really happy with this - I racked my brain for weeks for ideas, but none of them really seemed all that appealing to me before I came up with this! This is partially inspired by how these star sequins love to poke me painfully if they're attached to any clothing.
