Sort of feel like I'm doing the same thing twice in a row, but meh. I enjoy doing this type of nail art.
So, here we have Daria. I don't have much to say about it, really.
Herôme W.I.C. 'Dakar 107' and acrylic paints.

What's it going to be then, eh?

Polishes used:
Koh  '185 Coral'
Herôme W.I.C.  'Utreg 173'
Various acrylic paints my little sister kindly lent me, 
and the whole is finished off with a matte top coat.

Looks like I'm on a bit of a roll with the more detailed nail art I used to do. If 'two' can count as 'on a roll',  anyway. Gotta start the rolling somewhere. Err, anyway. Based on what (I think) is the most recognisable book cover for Anthony Burgess' 'A Clockwork Orange'. Another one of those designs I've been wanting to do for ages but kept putting off - check!
The rest of my hand has a bit of a erm, McNail vibe going on with the colour scheme. I toyed with doing the rest in orange for obvious reasons, but that didn't link back to the book cover, which was first and foremost my intention. I meant to show the design next to the actual book cover, but my copy is currently on loan so the badge got the spotlight!

Is this not what you expected to see?

If you wanna find out what's behind these cold eyes,
You'll just have to claw your way through this disguise

I really, really love The Wall. I'd been meaning to do this for a while but kept putting it off (dreading the effort I expected was involved in getting the bricks properly across both hands) but I did it now!
Not really as planned, and my right hand definitely came out looking less than stellar. If I can have a superpower, I want it to be ambidexterity.

Polishes used;
Koh 'Black!'
Miss Sporty Clubbin Colours '70'
'Nail Tip Whitener'
NYC '003 Prey of Grey'
Bodique (Hunkemöller) 'Rood (red)'
