Since I’ve learned pedicures in school, I might as well practice them even if they’re not my reeeally favorite thing to do…
At least once you’re done the feet look much better. This polish is Orly “Wonder Woman” from their Wonder Woman collection that was at Walgreens briefly. It is a clear base with a ton of red micro glitters with some blue hexes and yellow stars perfectly representing her costume. I did two coats of China Glaze “Poinsettia” topped with one coat of “Wonder Woman”.
Above is two coats of China Glaze “Poinsettia” by itself. It’s a lovely glassy red that applied super smoothly. I use this when I need a plain red all the time.
Above are the pedicures I’ve done at school, the top two on female clients and the bottoms ones on my classmate Rick!
I’ve been seeing this technique a bunch lately, and it looks super cool. I’m not sure if mine didn’t work that well because I didn’t let the nail polish dry enough before coloring on it with the sharpie, or if it’s because I use regular nail polish not gel or acrylic, but oh well, you only learn by trying things!
The end result reminds me of watercolor paints, so I still think they look neat, just not as cool as the ones I’ve seen. I used white polish as the base, then colored random parts of the nail with different colors, then used a nail brush dipped in rubbing alcohol to mush the sharpie colors around.
I really like making hats as they’re easy and quick! I’ve been working on just trying to use up my stash of yarn, and quick projects are good for that.
I’m hoping eventually to a bunch of stuff done and ready to sell, and maybe to have a booth at craft fairs or something. We’ll see, in the meantime, I gotta make enough stuff to be able to do that or have an Etsy store worth anything!
More practice of doing acrylics on myself, pretty happy with how they came out. I’ve come a long way in a year. The best part of fall is all the beautiful colors on the trees, so this mani is a tribute to that!
