Welcome back! Ahh. Alright, so prepare yourselves for a bit of a messy look lol. I kinda went crazy and the cleanup wasn't all that great. But I still love my nails ^_^

This past week/weekend I've been having a bit of reading mix up. I've started 5 books and have not finished one of those 5. But, the book that I did get most of done is Sins & Needles by Karina Halle

SUMMARY:

Ellie Watt is used to starting over. The daughter of a grifting team, Ellie spent her childhood being used as a pawn in her parents' latest scam. Now she’s much older, wiser and ready to give her con artist life a rest. But returning to the dry desert town of Palm Valley, California means one more temptation than she bargained for – Camden McQueen. Once known as the high school weirdo, Camden is bigger and badder than the boy he used to be and a talented tattoo artist with his own thriving business. Ellie’s counting on Camden still being in love with her but what she’s not counting on is how easily unrequited love can turn into obsession over time. When Camden discovers Ellie’s plan to con him, he makes her a deal she doesn’t dare refuse, but her freedom comes with a price and it’s one that takes both Ellie and Camden down a dangerous road.

Went a little crazy cleaning up around the middle finger lol. *shrugs* 

EEK Messy!

Alrighty! Short click just so you guys can see the colors a bit better.

Description: I did a bit of a messy ombre. First I painted my whole nail with just a black polish. Then for the ombre I used three different colors: Sapphire Blue (top), Dude Blue (middle), Neon Green (bottom) With the black base, it really muted the brightness of all three colors. If used just without the darker base, it would have come out brighter, and I didn't want that.

I did the same thing for my ring finger nails on both hands BUT, I then just added a bit of white (dabbing it on using a paint brush sponge)  just so that when I added the design, it would pop more.

The design on the ring finger nails are just music notes on a music sheet. Again, this is very messy. It was late, I was tired, and I wanted to go to bed lol.

The video capture a bit more of the colors and I gotta say, I'm really liking the outcome. Minus the messiness lol.
