One of my last nail design tryout was the drip paint look. I hope that's the proper name for em....if it's not oh well...you'll see what I'm talking about it in the pictures.
I actually quite liked the design and once I got the hang of it, it was pretty easy to achieve the look. Although it does take longer to complete it than getting a regular manicure, it was worth it.
And without further ado, I present to you drip paint nails....yea!!!!
1. First put the clear base coat - Then your base color, I did two coats of that. Let dry.
2. Grab your second color, put/paint/drop two or three dabs (with your nail polish brush - no special brushes needed) on the nail and drag the color up to the top of the nail. Let semi dry.
3. Paint the top of the nail-french tip like. No need to be uber perfect.
And like omg you're done (sorry for that), well after letting everything dry and applying your top coat and clean up. Then you;re done. For my left hand I painted two of the nails a solid color of each polish. Make it a little different. --- Sorry for the blurred picture, I was kinda being rushed...date night.
Color used - Sinful Colors-Summer Peach & Essie-Merino Cool
So I think I am finally starting to realize that nothing will ever or always be perfect. For me this means trying to capture the perfection or rather the complication or the fact that there is little of it...time.
I have always been caught in a loop of miscalculated time. My childhood was not really my childhood but rather my training into adulthood. My adolescence is something I would much rather forget. - I really was awkward. Yes, I know that's what your suppose to be, but I was awkward in the sense that I knew I didn't belong for a multitude of reasons. Maybe I was way beyond my years at the time. And now my adulthood, well its kinda a mess and I'm still trying to figure that out.
Then of course, there's the I never have enough time for everyone. It's like I'm living separate lives with everyone: work, family, friends, my boyfriend, his family, yada yada yada. Oh! And I forgot myself. I play one too many roles: "mother", sister, daughter, girlfriend, wifey, chef, leader, worker, friend, volunteer, counselor, student, planner, beauty queen, vivacious latina, sex vixen, intellect, and on a occasion a bitch. Some of these I wish I could do a bit better.
But you know I will never have enough time to do everything and somehow I have to figure out a way to be myself in all of these roles. Or maybe I have to stop being so "I got everything" and hand the torch to someone else for a change!
I have to remember that I have resolved that there is not enough time or enough me to do everything...all the time. And to not be so hard on myself when I have days that I just can't do anything. It might also be about making calculated shortcuts to make others believe that I'm are indeed SuperWoman.
