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.

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*
