First don't forget our giveaway! Only a few hours left!!!
So the past couple of weeks I have been busy so I haven't really had time to make my nails pretty for you guys. Not only that but as far as nail art goes I've just been feeling a tad uninspired. I do have some manicures planned but I'm saving them for specific days.
While looking for inspiration, I remembered something. A friend who I do sketch with said that he always carry's an encyclopedia around. If he doesn't know what to write about he just turns to a random page and writes about whatever he sees first. Now I didn't have a encyclopedia(The children's one I have does not count). But I have Wikipedia. So I decided to see if Wikipedia could help me get inspired. And it's easy because they have an option where you can choose a random article!
Now I made up a few rules/cheats:
1) If I don't like the first article or I just want to see if I can find something that inspired me more I can select a max of 3 articles. Once 3 are chosen I must choose one.
2) Things that are inappropriate I can disregard and they are not counted as one of my possible 3 articles. (War, murder etc.)
3) I can disregard things that aren't articles. (If the word has different meaning or it's people with the same name it will sometimes send you to a page that gives you options for different articles that have the same title). Not counted in possible 3 choices.
4) Vague articles can be disregarded. I had an article pop up that was a sentence saying it was a patch of land somewhere. Depending on article I can choose to disregard it.
So what was my first random article? *Drumroll*
Yup the number 92. I looked over the article and saw that it was the atomic number of uranium. Huzzah inspiration! I have Sally Hansen's Ivy League and it reminded me so much of glowing uranium, I knew I had to use it somehow. So I ended up doing these toxic nails! I used that, BK polish in number 19 from the Born Pretty store and acrylic paint and OPI's black shatter(didn't think I would be using that anytime soon).
I can't want do another wiki article inspired manicure!
