Hello my lovelies!
I bought some craft sponges from a hardware store to do some gradients!
I've seen this idea on another blog - (unfortunately I can't seem to find it again - if its you, let me know and you will get credit where it's due!) and thought it was just too awesome not to try!
Unfortunately I've run out of nail polish remover so I still have my black and white konad on so while my boyfriend was playing Fallout 3 I painted his toenails!
I was originally going to try something different but wanted to keep it GothBoy friendly so zombie it is!
Here's some pics I took pre cleanup:
Can you see the dark green shimmer in the blackish polish? The green glows under UV - it's still dark green but it definitely has a slight glow - how strange!
And after cleanup (Well, a shower):
What do you think? I would have LOVED to have had some Matte TC to put over the top - but OH WELL...
Please be kind - it's my first shot at using sponges and i'm still trying to work out how much polish to load them with.
How do you do it?
I just painted it on the sponge but when that wasn't enough i put it over the mouth of the nail polish bottle and gave it a shake!
That turned out to be a little too much.
Next time i might just put a blob on, say, an empty ice cream container lid, then pick some up with the sponge.
Do they make you think of zombies? Or something else? All i can say is the Boy is content with his zombie polish. :)
