After a month of caring how my nail art and photos thereof come out (because of the MoYou London competition, which was fun, but effort), I couldn’t be bothered this time. I did get some new plates, though, and I mostly like how my nails turned out (although, again, lazy hence could be better).
On my left hand I have a base of OPI I Have A Herring Problem and different stamps from Sailor Plate 05 stamped with OPI Black Onyx. It probably would’ve been better if I’d stamped with white, since the grey, while sparkly, is darker than I always expect it to be from the bottle. Oh well. It’s still a nice and subtle look.
What isn’t subtle is my right hand. In sunlight the green is pretty much that radioactive looking. I started with an uneven base coat of Kicks White Orchid. (Uneven because lazy and up to the gloop in the bottom of the bottle. Also because I decided that a slightly uneven look with the slime colour would totally make it look more like slime. And it does.) Then I put a couple of layers of (aptly named) Claudia The Slime. It took ages to dry and I had to redo my index finger because I thought it was dry. Sigh. Then I stamped with OPI Black Onyx and MoYou London Scholar 03.
Side note, I was super stoked that when I opened the Scholar 03 plate, the design fails, which still appear in the website image and which I’d decided I could live with, had been fixed! In the above image, the fixed thing is the subscripts in the chem formulae (they weren’t subscripts originally) and (not pictured) the periodic table entries for barium and gallium were mislabelled. Super stoked that they got fixed. The plate itself was also from a new batch with neat little numbers in the place where there’s a cut-out tab in the cardboard so you can tell which plate you’re picking up without having to pull it out.
