Hello and Happy New Year to you all! Lift those spirits out of those winter blues with something bright and cheery that might also be sweet enough to eat! Find out how I whipped up this sweet and colorful nails after the break!
Colours Used: Sinful Colours in Nirvana, Ruby Ruby, and Black on Black | OPI Gumdrops in Cherry Amore | Avon Nail Polish in Sunshine, Electric Green, Blue Escape, Vivid Purple, Fuchsia Fun, and Cotton Candy | Sally Hansen Extreme Wear in Lilac and Blue It | Joe Fresh Nail Polish in Tigerlily
What really got me into it though, was the backstory of the level, which involved a goat with rainbow horns, that just refused to come down because "there's only disappointment and sticky feet waiting for him", which kinda represented my general state of mind when things become tough.
To start things off, I did the soda springs in the traditional colours using an ombre effect. I started off with a layer of the Fuchsia Fun nail polish, then sponged on the Vivid Violet on the bottom half, making sure that it's evenly blended and true to colour. To complete the ombre effect, I sponged on some of the Cherry Amore to add some depth, shimmer, (and fizziness!) to the look.
For the Rainbow Horns, I used the same colours that had appeared on the goat's horns. I tried my best to mimic the swirly shape of the horn but it ended up being a trippy and bizzare mess!

To complete the look (and to complement the rest of the vibrant nails!), I did a coco straw design on the thumb using the same Nirvana base as the Chocolate-Honey (but with some white mixed in), and then adding some black and milk chocolate stripes to the nail.
It feels great to be back to blogging again after the emotional breakdown that has been happening to me for the past couple of months. As long as I stay positive and don't do anything that will make relapse again, I should be just fine.
I hope this has helped bring back some well needed colour into your lives! Have any of you guys started playing Candy Crush Soda yet? (and if not stop what you're doing and get on it immediately!)
