    Default The Nail Thread

    there may already be a thread like this but just in case there isn't and because someone suggested it in the make up thread
    here... have the Nail Thread (and a cookie)
    post pictures/reviews etc etc... to any nail varnishes that you love (and hate)

    once I get home on thursday I shall put up some pics of my nails with various shades of varnish on
    also going to attempt to do a galaxy/nebula inspired nail so if that's a success then I shall also post pics of that

    I have super glittery nails atm . Got a bit bored. Sooo tempted to order the beetlejuice collection from Models own too, esp since it's cheaper atm!
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    I am going to paint my nails for the first time in MONTHS tomorrow just in time for going away (: NO.7 I'm not sure of the shade (it's upstairs and I'm too lazy to go check right now) anyone had experience with N0.7 polishes? It's a Limited Edition purple sparkly colour.

    Awesome thread! ^_^

    I'm currently lusting after Ozotic duochromes. I really, really want some. I'm trying to decide whether to buy the Models Own Beetlejuice collection too, I got them for my Secret Santa and they looked nice enough, but something is holding me back. I just can't figure out what!

    just googled the Ozotic Duochromes and now I'm really wishing I hadn't ... thanks for that
    I've been finding nail art tutorials on youtube and my favourite by far are the ones done by this girl
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wLRd...feature=relmfu

    they're all in french but they're subtitled and she does it step by step

    also I want to try doing the water marble nail art thing that a lot of the videos mention but I can't help thinking that it would just be a waste of polish seeing as it looks like you'd need to use a fair bit of polish judgig by the few tutorials I've watched on it

    Me and my sister found that water marble thing impossible, even with the correct water temp and various nail varnish brands. Gave up in the end!

    I've done this twice. It looked really cool on a couple nails and then the rest were like..eh. And its suuuuuuuuuper messy. I got it alll over my fingers. Even when I tried to do the taping around it.

    Depending on how long your nails are and how many layers you put in the water, it doesnt really use up that much polish when you consider you use at least one drop per nail for each coat, and for me I usually have to put at least one more coat on so the color will be nice.
    Now:
    left ear: lobes x2, tragus, helix, rook
    right ear: lobes x2, upper helix kinda thing
    left nostril, navel, septummmm!

    Later:
    right forward helix or tragus, conch, maybe another lobe
    another helix on left ear
    tongue

    Tattoos:

    I can't paint my nails because I broke my left middle nail yesterday and it's too short to paint:( I used to keep my nails a nice short square shape but recently I let them grow and quite liked it. I'm a bit gutted I've had to file them down!
