Freehand Flowers and... Cabbage??!

Good afternoon, dear readers! :D

I still have a loooong way to go with practising one stroke flower designs, but here is my most recent manicure attempt:

The leaves on the middle finger look kind of like a cabbage.  XD

For the base I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Blue It, and then I painted the designs on with acrylic craft paint.  I have to say, Blue It is an AMAZING polish!!!  The colour and formula are fantastic!! :D  I can't recommend this polish enough (and it is inexpensive to boot!).

As you can see I have a LOT more practice to go, but it is so fun to do that I don't mind! :D

I hope that everyone has been having a wonderful weekend!!  My birthday is coming up soon (8 days) and I am SO EXCITED!!! :'D

Take care, my friends!!

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*
