Hi everybunny! Happy Tuesday! Welcome to part 2 of one million of my On Safari nail art series/obsession/catharsis. I can't stop. I guess maybe we can make this On Safari Week? On Safari Month? On Safari FOREVER??
This design came from one of those times when I knew what colors I wanted to use but had no clue what I was going to do with them until I was actually doing it. I kept thinking of dotted half-moons but then right as I was about to start on them I thought of making the dots descend in size to the edges and I love the way it ended up looking! I think it looks like my nails are wearing little necklaces.
The beige is China Glaze Kalahari Kiss, one of my new favorite neutrals. The glitter is China Glaze I'm Not Lion, which... I love, obviously. I liked Purr-fect Plum and Kalahari Kiss together so much that I almost didn't add the glitter, but once I tried it on one nail I loved how it looked even more so I went for it.
As part of the same clearance haul I talked about yesterday I somehow had the unbelievable fortune of picking up two of the Finger Paints flakies I didn't have (for $1.64 each!) and I really wanted to use Finger Paints Flashy over Purr-fect Plum on my right hand.
This is one of those times where my left-hand nail art was so simple that I easily could have replicated it on my right hand but I was dying to use that flakie. Do you guys ever do that? Paint your hands differently because you just can't decide? Am I crazy?
God, just LOOK at those flakies, though. They look like embers on this base color and they really bring out the red tones of the plum. And that COLOR SHIFT! Hnnggg.
Alrighty, that's all for today, guys! Do you have any of the FP flakies? Do you love them? I forgot how much I loved them for a while but now I remember. So much.
