Some of the few "chick flicks" I have watched are the Bridget Jones movies. And here I found my inspiration: Bridget's pyjamas! I know they are a bit christmas-y, but I didn't care very much... I like penguins! Even in spring!
This is the picture that insprired me. This time, I didn't exactly try to copy my inspiration. Only partly xD
I recently got a lot of old polishes from my mom. She's mostly a red person, so most were red polishes. Perfect, because I own even more yellows than reds! I chose one of the polishes I got from her: a classic red by the brand Jade (Maybelline). It was a little goopy, but nothing a few drops of thinner couldn't handle. What surprised me, though, was the smell! It smells almost as bad as Model's Own polishes. I don't think the polishes still smell like that...
The red polish dried really slowly. I painted all my nails on both hands, nail art an all and when I applied my top coat almost an hour later, I would still drag the red! Luckily, it doesn't show up very much.
The black and white are acrylic paint as usual. I originally planned to use my striping polishes, but I couldn't get the caps off as much as I tried (with freshly painted nails...). Oh well. The orange and blue for the penguins are polish though.
Well, since my top coat dragged the colors a little bit, the lines aren't as crisp anymore, but I still like how it turned out. It felt weird wearing red polish though. It still is a very unusual color for me, which is weird, because I wear red clothes a lot...
That's all the picture spam for today. I can't wait to see everybody else's nail art! Please take the time and check out their blogs!
