My boyfriend, David, took me to the Tim Burton Exhibition as a surprise and of course it was incredibly inspiring. I mean, seeing all his artwork was amazing. The shapes he creates in his drawings and sculptures are intriguing and sometimes disturbing. Still buzzing from the inspiration days later I tried to use the famous Burton swirl in my changed from where I thought I was going with it but I still love it nonetheless and got a lot of compliments! :)

Here's a better photo, you can see the details;

What I used: Sportsgirl Nail It in Strike A Posie, Ultra3 in Wild Berry, Inglot in 540 (the sparkle black/grey), Hawley Nail Art Pen and simple rhinestones.

I'm only just starting to use rhinestones and whatnot on myself (got some from ebay) and I'm loving it-- I want more!
Thanks for looking!

I painted these nails for when I went over to Melbourne to see my lovely David, he likes him some Gloomy Bear :D So this photo was taken after I'd worn it for two weeks. Yes, two weeks, that's what to wonder of a layer of acrylic can do for your nails! It keeps them strong, helps them grow and your nail polish never chips.

I only recommend it if you're up for the maintenance though, I get lazy with it, as you can see these are in need of a refill but a lot of the time I just file them slightly and paint over it. LAZY! Anyway, to the point, the nails!

I love how they turned out and so did David, hurrah!

What I used: Beautiful Nails in White, Glossyblossom in  Mat Rose, Orly in Fair Godmother and Hawley Nail Art Pen in Black.

Nice and simple design that looks great in the end. Thanks for looking!
