A couple weeks ago I picked up some acrylic paint to try out (for nail art, of course) and I found myself wanting to re-create the chandelier art piece and its 'teardrop' effect. In other words, where the words of what seems like a corny love letter were cried on causing some of the ink to blur (wah wah, someone call a wambulance).
It's not a perfect replica, and I'm still not happy with my paint brush size (I had trimmed one down but it was still frayed, arg).
Let's look at my nailspiration for a sec:
|Working Girls Design Inc. Chandelier canvas|
|Chrome chandelier-style floor lamp from Urban Barn... and my kitty.|
|The artwork again... and my kitty just 'cause.|
And here's some more pics of my actual nails. The colouring of the photos went a bit wacky because I was using the canvas as a backdrop as opposed to my usual bland grey draw blinds.
Can you see the 'teardrops'? Boo f**king hoo.

|I would be so mad at someone if they actually cried on my pointer finger nail.|
