TRI-ing on Talons
Let's just get this part over with, shall we? Holy Frijole!
You've seen my nubs, so you know these talons aren't real. They're KISS Everlasting French press-on nails. I got them from Influenster, and took them for a spin. After a day, I got bored with the plain French, and started doing different nail art looks, which I'll be showing you in the coming days and weeks. They do look pretty good, and with a layer of Rica's Glossy Glam, they actually looked more real. Fooled a friend of mine that does her own acrylics!
For the nude part of the challenge, well, the nail already has a nude part! I accented it with Ooh La Lacquer Matte-terial Girl, a collection of tiny nude/pink glitters in a matte base.
I was inspired by Robin Moses' Heart Flowers design for this look. It was kinda fun to have a long nail as a base for this nail art.
After setting the background branches with my black striper, I used Avon Mango Melon (which looks red, but it did seem like coral!) with a little Born Pretty holo #3 to make the heart flowers.
Mentality Pastille didn't work for the leaves, really, but I did love it for the 'pollen' of the flowers. Who needs leaves? This turquoise holo is so pretty.
Some more Glossy Glam, and we're done!

I'm okay with my nubbins, but it was fun to wear talons for a few days. There was So.Much.Room on my nails! Do you have a preference for looking at nail art on long or short nails?
