Happy Friday! Sorry for such a late post in the day. I'll discuss this further at the end of the post. Anyways, let's move on to the matter at hand, literally. Because Halloween is all about dressing up, I decided to do some more nail art for you. I have this image that I use as various avatars, but I decided to try to get a little more in-depth. So here's my Morrigan nail art revisited! Below is a comparison to her and the color I was aiming for is on the right highlighted with a 1. And yes, I pulled out the UMvC3 bible for these pictures.
For my thumb and pinky, I used two coats of Pure ICE Playful Princess. I was really impressed with this color. It looked amazing, had a great consistency for a creme and the glossy finish was oh so perfect! On my index and ring finger I used two coats of Impala Brisas. Brisas is a bit more of a semi-opaque jelly and dried to an almost matte finish. For my middle finger, I started with three coats of Color Club Oh My Versailles. If you remember in August I used this polish and it left horrible staining on my nails. I'm about halfway grown out right now, so I used this nude to make sure I have a nice even skin town like color. I then used Very Emily's tutorial on a cut-out heart and used Julep Cleopatra for this. This polish will make one more appearance in nail art coming up soon. The water decals were bought years ago on eBay and they just aren't the best anymore. I think I will try a different method next time I do Morrigan inspired nail art.
For those who don't know, Morrigan is by far one of my favorite characters in gaming and comics combined. I have always used her in every game that she's in so, its only fitting I still use her.
So again, sorry about the lapse in posts these past couple of weeks. Yesterday was both a joyous, yet difficult day. I was so proud of my babies getting academic achievements and district honors, but then we all had to go to a memorial service for one of Rosalie's friends who lost his battle with cancer. I can't even imagine what his parents must be going through; the thought alone brings tears to my eyes. Rosalie had drawn a picture of her friend and gave it to his family at the service. I was so proud of her, but seeing their own sadness... it was heartbreaking. I definitely find an outlet in working on this and casually gaming, so I'm glad I have them to do in my spare (spare) time.
