Dalton and Glee Cupcakes

So I'm going to the Glee 3D sneak peek, and despite having no glee friends to party with I made cupcakes!

Look below the cut to see the Glee Slushie and Dalton Warbler cupcakes, and read about the process.

Dalton Blazer - Art Nails

Second set of nails, still on a dalton theme. I'm quite happier with these.



Dalton Blazer

Polishes used:
Bari Cosmetics - Pure Ice - Silver Mercedes (Silver)
NYC - Long Wearing - 115 Skin Tight Denim (Blue)
NYC - Long Wearing - 131 Big Apple Red (Red)
Sally Henson - No Chip Acrylic Top Coat (Clear)

Tools Used:
Nail Polish Brush
Toothpick (for dotter)

Method:
Simple stripes and dots, inspired by uniforms (though I suppose it should have been gold instead of silver). Still Dalton inspired because that's the only colors I have, and I'm still working on nails for my costume.

Painted on 2 coats of red and let dry.

Layered the silver on 1/3 (roughly) of the nail and let dry.

Striped the blue on, leaving a small strip of silver. (could have done blue, then a line of silver, but I was using the polish brushes to get smoother lines). Let Dry.

Dotted on silver with a toothpick, let dry then added 2 coats of clear top coat. (I also learned I could have dotted the silver on when I made the first silver layer and saved a little time. oh well)

Nail Art - Dalton Stripes

So, I've decided to play with nail art, in the hopes of having some nice nails to pair with my dalton outfit on the 10th (Glee 3d: the movie pre-screening)

This is my first attempt at nail art, and I think it's pretty safe to say, I have a long ways to go.



Dalton Tie Stripes

Polish Used:
NYC - Long Wearing - 131 Big Apple Red
NYC - Long Wearing - 115 Skin Tight Denim
Sally Henson - No Chip Acrylic Top Coat

Tools Used:
Polish Brush
Striping Brush (homemade, cut down paint brush)

I just realized that the polish names will be funnier to Klaine fans (bonus, the silver I used to mark the inside bottom is 'Mercedes')

First step was filing the nails, leaving them long but making a better fit. Then I glued the nails to wood skewers, to make them easier to manipulate.

I started with a bottom coat of blue, then realized the red would not show up well, so made a few coats of red. red ended up a little darker because of this.

Applied blue in (messy) stripes, then covered in 2 coats of Top Coat.

Lessons for next time: - Choose bottom coat wisely, and make neater stripes. Invest in a good striping brush.
