How To Do A Studded Collar Mani

nailart with glitter and texture

Earlier on Twitter I referred to unsuccessful attempts at this as an absolute Satanic Mess. Of course I didn't mean it because there aren't any goats or candles on it, and besides if you believe in a Satan you have to believe in a God and its all very theologically sensitive so if its ok with you I'd rather not go down that road.

This is about nails.

Very pale manicure
I took Barry M 278. I sat there for half an hour until it dried. I got a black nail art pen and tried to draw a collar shape. I attempted to stick diamonds on the collars.

If Blair Witch made manicures, they would look better than this.

Messed it up. Removed polish. Repeated all day until my brain bled. 
All that brain bleeding must have cleared way for sense. 
Of course its not looking like a shirt, shirts aren't glossy! 
Went over with matte top coat. 
Little fresh bits of brain cheered and clapped. 
Got a base coat, dotted alittle bit on the collar, poured glitter over and that was that. 
Easy when you know how. 
Matte top coat, and trepanning. 
should have stopped there. But I didn't
To capture the sparkle
I think we're getting somewhere

Left is a bad execution of a half assed idea. Right is the cootest wickle fing inna wurld!
