All the pretty nails! Too bad I can't have pretty nails in hospital :(
note to self: take pictures of stash, make multiple posts to thread C:
Spoiler: Rhinestone studded Sollux nails!
Wish I could figure out how to get bubbles outta topcoat. It doesn´t seem to matter how carefully I don´t shake it...
Wow, those are really cool.
And I have no idea how to get the bubbles out, but they sorta look neat and almost-intentional in this case.
My mother bought me some nail varnish this weekend so I did a Thing with it.
Spoiler: Minty-fresh pastel goth is not my aesthetic but it's hella cute regardless.
My favorite polish color. It's like the blood of my enemies only with glitter in!
Green adventures for a green month! Revlon Colorstay "Jungle," with Maybelline "Diamond in the Rough" sparkles overtop. The sparkles are actually kind of coppery IRL, which is not at all what they looked like in the bottle but is really cool against the dark green.
Spoiler: shiny shiny
Someone posted this (probably on pintrest maybe?)
So I'm still doing stuff, this is what I have currently. I just got a bunch of pics imported, except that Apple changed things and for no obvious reason I can't use aperture for imports now, and Photos is sort of crap.
Spent my afternoon painting a braid pattern on my nails
this makes me really happy :3
I have a bunch of stuff to post here.

Spoiler: you can see all the staining from yesterday's green nail polish :c
did this during gaming tonight: mint chocolate chip!
Excuse my rough and gross fingers.
Spoiler: Yay nails
I have a need to add a black splatter coat to everything I swear.
It makes your nails look like some kind of dragon eggshell
I'm spinning around and around in my chair because I want to talk to people about nail polish but I can only talk at people about nail polish because no1curr.
Spoiler: Yesterday's nails! Gold-tipped pastel and kawaii as fuck.
I bet magical girls wear this sort of nail polish.
Then today's nails:
Spoiler: FITAN EVIL BY MUUNLAAAIT
Does it bother anyone else that the senshi don't appear in planet order? Fuckdammit Venus stop ruining everything for everyone.
Spoiler: Ol' Righty makes an appearance.
Wonky-as-shit photo because how the hell do I operate a camera with my left hand. What do?? It never occurred to me that this would be a useful life skill.
A England Dragon + ILNP Success + Essie Matte About You = perfect lizardmonster nails. I need to remember this combo.
Haha I just realised that my right hand looks so awful compared to the left. It's been bearing the brunt of my bitey-bitey habits, I need the left to look pretty for nail art purposes.
this was a couple days ago and it's all peeled off by now (idk why but nailpolish doesn't last longer than like, two days on me) but it was super pretty while it lasted~ mint green + rose gold is like, the best combo.
Ooh, turns out that if you layer ILNP flakies over the matching multichrome you get a hellacious effect! My mother said it looked "like dragon scales or something"; my brother said I have "scary scary nails, quite terrifying in fact".
Spoiler: This is Brilliance over Nostalgia
'pologies for the picture, I don't have the semi-decent camera with me and had to rely on the tablet camera.
@alchemicalheart The only nail polishes I've ever had bubbles with have been a couple of really cheap ones and the Sally Hansen stuff, so it might be an issue with the brand you're using?
The only advice I can think of is to try using super thin coats, thick coats tend to be more likely to bubble. Oh, and don't shake the bottles (if you've been shaking them) or try shaking the bottles (if you haven't).
Robin's egg nails! Bit chipped, but eh.
