Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Decades: 1960's Inspired Blobicure

by - Wednesday, January 11, 2017

I don't know you guys, I feel like my creativity has left me these days. :( Getting these nails out was almost physically painful for me I had so few ideas... This was my third attempt at something vaguely 1960's themed and I'm still not happy with it. I think I was going for like, a blobicure inspired by a lava lamp?? :/

I need to stop being such a Debbie Downer. Grr. Positives, okay... Hmm, well, this is a moderately successful blobicure, which I have never done before! That's good, right? :) And I did get a mani done today, so that is a success I can acknowledge too. So that's two positives. Just gotta keep in that mindset! Yess!

So let me tell you a bit about this manicure... I started off with a thick coat of Color Club Astro-Naughty because I wanted something other than boring white, and then I did my blobs with Nicole by OPI Daffy Dill, Hit the Lights, The Right Thing and Oh That's Just Grape! I decided that wasn't quite enough so I took the risky choice of adding a bit of pink with Color Club Jackie Oh! dots. Too much? Doesn't matter, it's done now!

So I like this mani but I definitely don't love it - I feel like I could have done something a bit more creative, but oh well. Tomorrow is another day!

Let me know what you think! Thanks for visiting! xx
