Hope nails and my comeback

Oh man, it's been so long since I posted any new nail art I've almost forgotten what it's like! 

I told y'all I got some new nail goodies and I'm gonna tell you what I got. Acrylic paints, brushes and water soluble ink. I'm a super fan! Well maybe not the ink so far, it's a little harder to work with than I thought so far. The reason for the ink and what am I doin with it? Stamping! Think how much easier it would be if you could just wipe off a messed up or misplaced stamp with water than it is with remover. Soooo much easier! It's not as opaque as I wanted but it's still a learning process. Anywho, the paints. Both harder and easier than I thought they would be. For this mani I used white acrylic paint with a little bit of pink water soluble ink (cuz how did I seriously not buy pink acrylic paint?!). But anywho, I used black acrylic paint for my tips. Harder than I thought as far as that goes but easier to do the ribbons than I thought.

I have more pics but they don't want to upload correctly :( The pinkish hint on my nail bed is Savvy USA Blush and the rhinestones were sent to me by a friend :) I put an extra coat of the Savvy on over the rhinestones to try to keep them on better but it turned out to be a bad idea. It got all bubbly. Looked way better before that! 

Here's a terrible pic (sorry old camera) of just the tips. Acrylic paint dries matte and it looked pretty cool.

This mani is all about hope to me. The black because it's a dark time, the rhinestones because just because you feel like shit you are still beautiful. 

That's it for this post, it feels great to be back though! I can't wait to play some more with my paints and such. AND it's getting closer to Halloween, yay! Can't wait to try some of my fun holiday stamps :D 

As always, thanks for stopping by :)
