Black Squiggles Over Silver and Gold - Freehand

Good morning, dear readers!

Today I have a messy manicure to show you.  I don't know why, but I just haven't been that inspired this past week.  :(  I was chatting with ChiChi (from I'm Just Me...ChiChi), and she said how she does challenges to keep inspired and push her art skills.  I think I may just do that!  Thanks ChiChi!! ^-^

So for this manicure I used a base of Barielle Night Moves (a gorgeous silver foil), with China Glaze White Cap over top, and two coats of Essie As Gold as it Gets over top of that.  Then I painted squiggles using black acrylic paint.

You can see the splotches of gold over the silver in these photographs, but in real life the effect was more subtle and really quite pretty! :D

I hope that everyone has a fantastic Friday!!  Wooo!

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*
