Clubbing blues.

I feel like I've been grossly negligent in updating this blog lately. Another day and it would've been three weeks, woops. I have no excuses besides being lazy and spending all my time watching House. But I digress.

Bit of a blast from the not-so-distant past; these pictures hail from before I chopped my babies down. A blue I will describe as 'vaguely cobalt-esque but not entirely so', and is one of Miss Sporty's Clubbing Colours. In real life it had an interesting vibrancy that was difficult to capture on camera. Nothing too extraordinary, but still a very nice colour in a budget polish.
Also - another untried down.. quite a few more to go!

Omelette du fromage.

If that title made sense to you, odds are you're gonna like this post.
Or.. that you enjoy French and eggs.. but I digress - onto the nails!

This post sadly brings with it my significantly shorter nails. Ouch. I broke my middle finger nail making a Sally dress for my little sister, and chopped the rest down as well. It's also been really long since I did some proper nail art (roughly three months or so?) so I'm glad I did.
Anywho, a group on deviantART I'm a member of has Cartoon Network as its monthly theme, and I spent three years of my life doing very little else besides watching Cartoon Network!
I was instantly inspired to go for the cartoon I've cherished very much since I first saw it, Dexter's Lab. It's been a favourite for years and I frequently still watch the episodes. But I'm sure you don't care about my television-related life story and I'll just show you more pictures.

  The blue behind Dexter is a Miss Sporty polish. I wore it before my nail broke and I took some pictures so I won't get into it yet.
The darker blue on my empty nails is My Boyfriend's Jeans by Essence, from their Denim Wanted! collection some time ago.
The pink behind DeeDee is a L'Oreal Resist & Shine Titanium polish and has been previously discussed in A Study in Pink.
The characters themselves have been painted with gouache and acrylic paints and a 00 brush.
