Love Nails and Chickadee

Good evening, dear readers!

Another Valentine's Day manicure (it says "LOVE" in calligraphy, but it is kinda hard to see it... :S)

I started with China Glaze Innocence, and sponged two frankens on the tips (Shamrock (by my sister) and Fangorn Forest (by me).  I also smushed some light yellow-green glitter on the tips, then added another coat of Innocence.  I then added a coat of Essie As Gold as it Gets.

I used acrylic paint for the decorations.  I did the thumb rose first, and was pleased with the results.  Then I started painting the other 4 roses and I didn't like them so much... I should have done what I did with the first rose and used a reference photo.  Ah well.  So I decided to cover the other roses up with calligraphy, but that didn't work out as neatly as I would have liked.  Oh well! ^-^  Then I added some dots on the thumb nail, and of course there were a lot of top coat layers between the stages of nail art (partially so I could take a break and go back to sleep, lol!).

Oh!  Yesterday I went out to a nature trail with my sister and dad, and we fed a bunch of chickadees. :D  Here is a really cute one that I was feeding:

EEEE I love chickadees!!! XD

I hope that you have a great rest of the weekend!

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*
