91  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Doctor Who Glitter Flats on: August 15, 2012 08:21:44 PM
So I made another pair of glitter flats, this time with a Doctor Who theme to them.  

Plain Flats
Mod Podge
Acrylic Sealer Spray
Blue Glitter
Black Glitter
Star Glitter
Silver Sharpie

I took plain black flats (from Payless) and prepped the surface.  I then took mod podge and covered the front half of the shoes and sprinkled on some fine blue glitter and let it dry.  Afterwards I coated the back half of the shoes and blended in strokes of glue to the blue glittered part.  I took the loose star glitter and scattered some in, I then covered it with the black fine glitter and tapped off the excess.  When it was done, it looked like the TARDIS whizzing through space.  Once these were completely dried, they got a few top coats of acrylic sealer.  I finished them with "BAD WOLF" on one shoe and "Tick tock goes the clock..." on the other using a silver sharpie.  They are a hint of geek, if you know what you are looking at, without screaming it out loud.

I have a thing for skull and cross bones, this is pretty cool!  It would really rock in a glow in the dark polish for the designs.

Thanks, I really like texture and interest in my nail colors.  I did a neon orange earlier this week with a black shatter over it.  The neon alone made me feel like I could direct planes in at the airport LOL  The shatter toned it down a bit but it was still fun looking for summer.  Yesterday I had another glitter sandwich in a medium blue.  I tend to do my nails every few days LOL  I'm leaving them blank this weekend to breathe for a bit though before I do something funky for Independence Day with them.  I'll be sure to post it here :-)
94  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Coney Island Mermaid Costume on: June 24, 2012 11:03:59 AM
Yesterday was Coney Island's Annual "Mermaid Parade" (http://www.coneyisland.com/mermaid.shtml).  This is my 2nd year going and dressing up.  My costume was actually totally last minute as the original plan didn't work out at all.  If I'd have had more time, it would have come out better in the skirt.  I may even go back to it and add more to the "fin" area as it was't as full as I wanted.  The inspiration is Star Wars Slave Leia meets Flapper became mermaid.

I made the fascinator for under $10.  I sprayed on some gold glitter (which I'm still finding on my person today) and hot glued on a strong hair clip to the back.  I LOVE this thing and would love to wear it every day if I could.


"tail" is a tight pencil skirt with poly organza ruffles for the fins in colors to match the feathers on the fascinator.  The top was made using a cheap $3 bra and covering it with the same skirt fabric and using some gold trim I had in my stash.  The Sequin fringe trim was fun as it swooshed around when spinning or dancing.

Total costume cost = $25!

I just had a photoshoot in Central Park this past weekend with a good friend (and excellent photographer) at the Alice in Wonderland Statue :-)  It was a ton of fun and we got some fun shots.  http://www.ng-master.com/cm/thumbnails.php?album=855

I'm not a blush gal either, especially since i have naturally rosy cheeks anyway.  The hearts are cute, but I think I'm more fascinated with the eye wear.  I wish I had decent enough vision to not need coke bottle lenses.  I have one pair of glasses with those special thin lenses that are way too pricey.  Cute ideas all around!
97  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Green Apple "Candy" Manicure on: June 07, 2012 01:43:20 PM
I was worried about that, but it dried smooth and hard.  Each layer was very thin and I let a layer dry a bit before moving on to the next one.  I was doing this at work during calls LOL.
98  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Green Apple "Candy" Manicure on: June 07, 2012 09:13:01 AM
I saw this idea last summer season and hadn't actually tried it until now (too many ideas, not enough time lol).  Basically you sandwich a loose glitter polish between a "jelly" polish (a sheer polish that you can see through mostly).  I did this great green apple one (looks like a Jolly Rancher!) for summer!

Order of Application - one thin coat each to achieve this look...
Base Coat
Sinful Colors "Irish Green" (pictured)
Wild and Crazy Colors "Call You Later"
Sinful Colors " Irish Green"
Wild and Crazy Colors "Call You Later"
Sinful Colors " Irish Green"
Seche Vite Top coat

It's a layered sandwich of jelly and glitter until I was happy with the color depth.  You could do less or more depending on personal taste.  I found that the recent collection of Sinful Colors neons (bought mine at Walgreens for $1 on sale) are jelly like and would be good for this.  I have a Neon Orange and Yellow at home too I may try!  

99  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Plaid Nails made easy! on: May 01, 2012 07:37:41 PM
Yep, another nail art post and quickie tutorial from me.  The rainbow shatter mani went over quite well with friends, and I decided to try out my art polishes again.  I was going to make a simple pink/blue/purple stripe and do shatter over it again, but I decided to do it plaid instead!  Sorry the photos aren't as nice, I only had my camera phone and office lights.



1. Base Coat
2. First color, vertical stripes leaving spaces between for the third color.
3. Second color, horizontal stripes, leaving a space between.
4. Third color, vertical stripes between the first color stripes to fill in the gap. The 3rd color should be sheer enough to lightly cover the second color and cause the plaid effect to look better.  Let your colors dry about 10 minutes.
5. Clear Top coat of choice and done!
** Before moving on to each step, wait about 5 minutes for the previous color stripes to dry a bit or they will get smeared by the next color application.

I did this in the morning during work between calls... this is when I tend to do most of my art lol.  It gives my nails plenty of time to dry since I'm not doing anything to possibly damage them except typing on a keyboard.

Thanks everyone!  I plan to make another one eventually now that I have a ruffle root.  That won't be for a while since I have a huge list to work on for Dragon Con already lol
