Prom Part 2: Marveling at Marvel

Went to Downtown Disney on prom night (and Marie Calender's and a friend's house and a thrift store and Zion Market and Costco and another friend's house and Joe's Italian Ice and Target) and saw this adorable tee at one of the stores >///<  I decided to do a nail art on it, but it took so long, it's not even funny.  I really love it though <3 Erasing these is going to be like losing little superhero friends.

L to R:  Spiderman, Iron Man, Captain America, Captain America's shield
Thumb:  "MARVEL"
The process:

I'm so glad these guys only needed the basic colors that I already have.  Except the gold -___-;; The polish is sparkly & the texture's messed up, so it made Iron Man look more messy.  Plus, I painted him last, so I got kind of lazy...

Prom Part 1: Midnight in Paris

Prom's tomorrow night & the theme is midnight in Paris.  I'm not going but decided to do the nails anyway~

L to R:  Dress, Couple holding hands with heart above, Tuxedo, Eiffel Tower with heart below

I wanted to go more red or pink than green, but this green was called "Dressmaker" & totally made me feel like a fairy godmother as I was painting the dress  >3<  Couldn't fight it, you know?  So green it is. Not too happy with the dress design or anything (should have planned it out better before painting), but it's all right.

AP Week

Did this instead of studying xD

L to R: "Study!", Stressed out nerd girl, "?" and sweat drops, Depression/How I feel after an exam

Tried putting on a watermark-type thing jic; it's such a pain xP But I guess I should go back and mark the others too... *sigh
And I used my dad's old camera for this one too ; it just seems to take better pictures, but the date thing at the bottom/editing it out is troublesomeeee

Black:  Liquid Leather by China Glaze
Red:  Diamonds and Rubies by Sally Hansen
Tan:  Bamboo Shoot by Sally Hansen
Blue:  Marino by Borghese

Greenhouse Coverup

I'd been wanting to paint my sister's nails for a while now (b/c hers are are ugly and gross when they're bare) but always ended up distracted by something else xD Eventually got around to 'em though.

My digicam ran out of battery, so I used my dad's old one to take pix of these, but... this camera stamps the [wrong] date in the corner -___-;;
Black:  Liquid Leather by China Glaze
Teal:  Teal Marble by Cherimoya
Yellow:  Mellow Yellow by Essence
Orange:  Marino by Nabi
White:  Poster paint b/c I had to use a brush instead of my usual dotting tool/toothpick, and I wanted an easy wash xD

Romance in Rain

I thought this design was pretty okay, but people have been asking me what it was, so I guess it wasn't as well done as I'd thought XP

All the clouds have silver lining :D

The raindrops didn't really show up against the blue background, so I thought black might be better.  It does contrast better, but it looks much darker, like it went from happy romance to tragedy xD

Please excuse like, everything about this photo >3< camera put a random date in the corner and the manicure's all chipped b/c I only figured out how to get a close shot about a week from the date posted xP

San Francisco

4/26 to 4/30, our speech and debate team went to SF for our state championship tournament.  Our debate... didn't do too hot, but nevertheless, much fun was had :D
Architecture in the city is amazingly creative and detailed.  I mostly only saw them while passing them by  car, so I couldn't get any good shots...

Here I am on Ocean Avenue :D
At Fisherman's Wharf... somehow, this is the only picture I took there...
Took an unexpected detour here on the way to the tournament and within two hours, my wallet threw up $50 xD but $20 was in the form of gift cards, so it's like I only spent $30... right?  But there was this adorable asymmetrical high low skirt with some tulip-style layering action going on at Yesstyle for $22 that I reeeeeeeally regret not buying >3<
So here's the nail art inspired by this trip:

My & my partner's nails; I had to modify the design on hers a little since my nails are like, 2x as long as hers....
L to R:  Cityscape, Golden Gate Bridge, "SAN FRANCISCO debate", ocean scene
Thumb:  "OA <3 KK 2012" (Oxford Academy Andi Kim-Erin Kim Team in 2012 <3)
Blue:  Marino by Borghese (only one thin layer for the lighter blue for the cityscape)
Silver:  Elegant Mode by Jade
White:  White On by Sally Hansen
Black:  Liquid Leather by China Glaze
Red:  Blood by Santee (or maybe Diamonds & Rubies by Sally Hansen; I forgot xD)
