Do you ever have one of those ideas? Really random, weird ideas? I do.
Well the other day I was thinking of transparent animals, because no one can stop me. That lead to me thinking of veins that you can see through skin. And I wondered could I do that on nails?
I knew I was going to have to sandwich blue in between a sheer nutral. Now I had nothing that matched my skin so I used a random Nailene french mani polish. As well as Milani Dude Blue(ugh) for the veins. Finally I added a layer of matte topcoat.
Now there's a few things you should take note of when looking at these photos. 1) The Camera tends to make the Nailene polish look a lot yellower when under light that's not natural. 2) The more light the less visible the veins were in photos. In real life they look more like the last 2 photos. Which were taken with a tiny bit of natural light 3) What I'm trying to say is these were IMPOSSIBLE to photograph. Any lighting I would consider good lighting essentially washes out the veins.
Now this is a semi fail because this actually looks pretty cool in real life. The "skin" looks a lot more natural and the veins are a bit more visible. But not too visible. Enough that they look sort of like veins :P
You guys get any weird nail ideas? Do you actually go through with them even though they my fail?
