Day 8: Metallic

I've been dreading this day because I hate the look of metallic nails on their own, but then I thought, why not add something else? I couldn't really think of anything and so I googled 'metallic things' (so original) and a picture of a paperclip came up... BRAINWAVE. Remember that annoying paperclip from microsoft word? "How can I help you today?" by leaving me alone :D Anyway, I decided to do him/her on my nails (do paperclips have a gender? maybe it should just be it) this post is rambling so I'll be quiet and let you see the nails. They didnt turn out as I hoped but the idea is there nonetheless :)

I just found this funny :P

I used Barry M silver foil and acrylic paints topped off with Seche Vite top coat



  1. I loveeee Barry M silver foil but then I always add something on top of it so I know wotcha mean!! Also I had forgotten all about that little annoying paperclip!! Aww I kinda miss him now!!

  2. I love all of your nail art. It's all pretty amazing. Seeing how you paint your nails often, how do you keep them from yellowing? Do you use an amazing basecoat?

  3. Awesome, I use to hate that paperclip haha!

  4. As the guy who created Clippy for Microsoft, and a lover of painted nails, I must say, I am hugely impressed and honored!
