MIA

Hi all! Just wanted to do a very quick update at this late hour. I do plan on making more videos, I was dragging me feet about it and when I did finally decide I was going to pump out three videos a bunch of RL events happened and my RL comes before nail videos. I’m so sorry if anyone has been waiting for the “EpicMealTime” nails I do plan on doing that one still! It may not exactly come next as I hope it would but come what may and wish me luck.

Batik Inspired

For those who like to quilt or sew or may recognize the term batik. For those who don’t- it’s a type of dyed fabric. To be more accurate, its a type of dying technique. Not that it’s important to the tutorial you can learn more here.  Anyways, getting back on track now. I was admiring a scrap piece of batik fabric laying around my children’s great grandma’s sewing room and thought it would make a fun nail art design.  The awesome thing I think about batiks is that not one single square inch is exactly the same as any other.  Some places may be shaded a like but not as if it was patterned. (BEHIND the pattern! You know what I mean :P) I had a lot of fun making this video! I hope you enjoy!

What I Used:

  • “Medium” Puple: Sinful Colors “Verbena”
  • Magenta: Essie “Big Spender”
  • Dark Purple: Pure Ice “No Means No”
  • Shimmery Purple: Sally Hansen X-treme Wear “Virtual Violet”
  • Pinky Purple: Sinful Colors “Let Me Go”
  • Light Pink for DOTS:  Nicole by OPI “Kim-pletely In Love”

Tools:

  • A porous sponge ( You can use a regular cosmetic sponge but I like the other better)
  • Tweezers, for the sponge.
  • Dotting tools ( Or hair pins, sewng pins, toothpicks…you get the idea)

So for those of you paying attention- look up EpicMealTime on youtube!  Take a wild guess at what the next design I’m working on next. 😀
