Blue Valentine

Good morning, dear readers!

I have another blue Valentine's Day manicure for you today.

For the base I used 2 coats of Cassiopeia, a franken that I had made.  I then drew on the details with a mix of white and blue non-toxic acrylic paint! :D  YAY!! :D

I want to mention to everyone who uses acrylic paint on their nails to please make sure it is labelled as non-toxic. There are so many paints out there that contain very harmful heavy metals, and you definitely don't want to expose your nails and skin to it.  A lot of these toxic ingredients are used to produce brilliant colour payoff, so they are still used.  I am a painter as well, and have many dangerous paints that contain cadmium and other toxic ingredients in them, and I save those for my regular paintings!  I also use separate brushes for nail art vs. regular paintings to avoid contamination.

I hope you like this manicure, as it was really fun to make! :D

Have a wonderful Saturday, everyone!

About Me

My Photo

Heyo!  I am the writer behind Art Evolve, a blog about things and stuff, that I update sometimes.  >:D

I have a serious love for books, gaming, and general sci-fi and fantasy things.

I also love music and art, and hope to become a better musician and artist as time goes on.

I just started playing Magic: The Gathering again after a looooong break (11 years!?!), and it is awesome.  I hope to become a better Magic player too, because I'm not that great at it heheheh.

I was introduced to edh last (I think?) month, and it has quickly become a favourite format.

UPDATE: Wow, that was in March of last year!  Time really flies!  Definitely not magnificent at it, but still on the Magic train and much better at it than last year.  XD

OH!  I also do MTG altered art, which I recently started and it is seriously fun and rewarding.  Magic + art practice?  Aw yeah!! :D

What else, what else...  I like video games, and play on both PC and console (PS!!).  I love rpg's and some good shooters, and killing zombies is a plus.

I love chocolate, tea and coffee.  I smoke cigarettes, which is stupid, so don't ever smoke cigarettes because it is stupid.

I also really like food.  Too much so.  Especially crunchy things!  I seriously need to get some bubble tea because it has been way too long.

I love to study but my ADHD makes it a bit difficult (a lot difficult, because remembering things can be kinda rediculous).  I also have obsessive compulsive disorder which sucks.  And anxiety disorders, which suck.

Favourite subjects include: astronomy, nihongo, art, geology, stuff like that.

HAVE AT YOU, KNAVE!  *slaps*
