Egyptian Nails

Good afternoon, dear readers!

Today's manicure is inspired by Egypt and hieroglyphics.  I started with a base of Butter London Wallis (thank you SO much, Amanda and Nory!!! :'D) and then painted on the designs with black non-toxic paint.  I then added some lighter gold around the designs, using Orly Luxe.

I then added some China Glaze Fast Forward top coat.  I had to fight to get photos of this, as I left my cables for the light box at my friends house, so I won't be able to use it until sometime next week.

The design is messy, but I'll just need to practice more.  ^-^



  1. THIS design is messy? Are you kidding??
    Your work is pure perfection, as always. Keep it up! =D

  2. Very pretty and antique looking.

  10. @ Maria: Thank you so much!! :D Naw, I only did my left hand. I usually only paint one hand since I remove the polish so soon afterwards. ^-^ I get excited for my next manicure and can't keep one on for very long, lol!!

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.

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*
