Creative musings in bright colors


This post is dedicated to my baby sister, Jojo. On Valentines day, I was actually wearing this mani. In honor of Jojo. Because February 14th is her birthday and purple is her favorite color. So here you go Jojo, a post in your honor that does not feature your nails (sorry!).

A really nice simple bit of art by Deanne29 had been floating around pinterest recently, and I wanted to see if I could somewhat recreate it using purple (the initial design was in pink). With the arrival of my new dark purple, I could finally do it! It’s astounding (and sad)…I have over 250 polishes, and I am still missing certain color groups. Like dark purple, until now. I suppose it doesn’t help that fully a quarter of my collection is in the teal/blue range.

The other amusing bit about this mani is that everyone went gaga over the rhinestones. I don’t often wear 3D art (they get pulled off under my gloves in lab), but maybe I should try more often? Not just as a single rhinestone accent, but as actual designs. *shrug*

The silver studs are from the Born Pretty Store and can be found here for $4.14 (less if you use my 10% off code LY5X31). Hope you enjoyed! (Yes, even you Jojo).
