There are very few things I love about National Day: Bitching about the lack of patriotism, being blatantly disregardful and unpatriotic, and the colours of the Singaporean flag. Red and white is one of my favourite colour combos. And yes, I do realise that I say that about every combination I talk about.
I do love red and white, though. Especially the stripes, which were not well painted, and the polka dots, which are done even more poorly. I did this late at night the day before National Day, you see. I'm glad I at least go the flag right.
I did this for my Toastmasters Investiture, which is like a ceremony to honour the old ex-co and welcome the new ex-co. There was a chess theme, and we (the old ex-co) were told to wear black and white.
I LOVE it, because black and white are the colours of my cat. And I take colours very seriously.
I can't believe this was the first time I put rainbows on my nails. I guess I thought I didn't have big enough nails.
I used a dotting tool to messily draw jagged lines. Looks rather childish up close in a big picture, but it was really cool in real life. Believe me.
Yes, I'm back. I've been busy, but I'm back now. I intend to continue posting on this blog by keeping posts short. I'm not going to write a lot. Maybe I'll just post pictures without captions. We'll see.
Anyway, this is strawberry ice crem with sprinkles. Doesn't it look delicious?

I'm so sorry for spamming you with pictures, but how awesome is this? I love what comes out of me when I'm inspired. Artwork on my fingernails.
Yes, I'm complimenting myself. I'm shameless.
I seem to be totally infatuated with a male individual of my species. MY species! Believe it or not, this is the first time this has happened. Before this, I've only fallen in love with cats and dogs. Never before have I wanted a man to be mine.
So congratulate me, I feel like a teenage girl! I finally know what all those girls in secondary school were talking about. Personal growth! Woohoo!
I named this after Queen's song, Crazy Little Thing Called Love. "This thing called love, I just can't handle it." I really can't handle this feeling. I can't stand the way my heart flips when I see him after a long time. I can't stand having to avoid him because we both know and it's so awkward. I can't stand the fact that I will never have him. Not even for a little while.
Fuck. I hope I get over this soon.

This was inspired by a bag that I saw in a shop. (By inspired, I mean I totally copied the pattern.) It was a white faux leather bag with colourful fabric circles fastened onto its face with silver studs. I almost bought it, but I was rather poor at the time, so I left the shop without it. Now I'm glad, because although I love its colours, its shape and size were totally irregular and I would never have used it.
Pretty, though, isn't it? The thumb is my favourite. 16 studs! I can't tell you how much pleasure it gives me just to look at pictures of it. Oh, I love my nails.

Yeah, claws again. Green this time, so that they look venomous. That's how I felt when I painted them. Toxic, dangerous to others. I sometimes think that that's why I wear bright colours, to warn people to stay away like frogs, snakes and insects do.
Isn't the colour pretty? It reflects gold. You can't really see it on my nails in these pictures but it shows up in the bottle. Maybe I shouldn't have used a black base. I'll try it on other colours.
And yes, I showed you my chipped polish. My fingernails are always painted but never perfect. What are you gonna do?

So, the hiatus has ended a little earlier than I predicted. I've got a new computer. And it's blue just like the cookie monster.
I love cookies. Just like the cookie monster. I wanted to paint a cookie on my ring finger, but I didn't have the right colours and didn't feel like getting my acrylic paint and mixing. So, all monsters.
And yes, the picture quality is bad and there's a big chip on my middle finger. I didn't manage to take a picture until about 5 days in. School, ya know.

I'm not able to upload pictures onto this blog due to some technical difficulties. That is, my piece of crap computer decided to die on me. Until I get a new one, which will be in mid-June, I won't be writing here. I'll still be painting my nails, though, and when I get my computer, I will flood this blog with entries. You'll be overwhelmed. Just wait.

I know, I've been away too long. I've got a few designs accumulated which I haven't written about. I've been meaning to, but school work, sickness and indolence got in the way. I'll get to it this week, though. Hopefully.
We all have dark sides and bright sides. Side by side. This is how I expressed mine. Can you see how the dark side glows with tiny blue and purple glitter? And how the bright side is dulled by gray shimmer? Sometimes dark sides aren't very dark and bright sides aren't very bright.
And yeah, I messed up. There are dark spots on the bright side of my left middle finger. And my right pinkie is smudged. I can make up some philosophical crap that makes them tie in with the whole concept, but I won't. Just ignore them, okay. :)
