Pinwheel Multicoloured Stars

Hi there guys!! I've just edited a mad amount of pictures and now it's just time to write posts. I am tired though, it's pretty late when I write this and I'm excited to chill (to an extent), really I have a ton of work to do (as usual) but let's not think about that. I had good intentions with this design but things ended badly. This goes hand in hand with yesterday'd glitter post, I don't like this design very much.

But I think the design looks much better in pictures. I like the colourful chaos in the pictures, it's fun and contrasting. But in real life it's a mess. We ignore such things though. I wanted to do stars without a black outline and of course that called for mental rainbow and monochrome(ish) stars made up of lines to go with the bar glitter. Yep and that didn't work out so great. I always like bright colours but the execution could've been much better here.

I did a base of white for the stars then got my toothpicks and drew lots of lines for the stars. I really do like some of the black and silver pinwheel stars, they are cool. I think I need to do more pinwheel nails in general, cause they're really cool in general.

  1. Hahaha!! I have those times too! The idea sounds fab in the head and somehow just isn't working on nails. :P Glad it's still alright in photos. ;) Oh, I do like the mix on your ring shown in the second picture. The silver bars really sparkled like firecrackers making the whole look really festive (like in carnival or circus).

    1. I seem to have quite a few of those times, it's annoying!! >:( Well it's better in pictures, which I always take. Thanks :) ok I love your imagery, it's fabulous, makes the idea of this design so much better!! :)
