Painted Polish By Lexi Bells Of Ireland

Today I bring you my half of a twinsie post I did with someone on Instagram.  I saw a post with the shoutout asking for people to do this with her.  I saw the image and figured this was something I could do and offered to do a twinsie post with her.

Here is the print we were to recreate.

Looks pretty simple right? Well look again.  These flowers are six sided and all I know how to do are five sided flowers.  Yes people. The attention to detail has now gotten my ass involved in something I wasn't sure I could even accomplish anymore.

So it's about a month or so until my birthday and I've already bought myself my presents.  I got myself a Filofax planner and a set of 150 colored pencils to go with my coloring books.  Check it out, it's not even polish!  I've actually been very good lately and haven't bought any new polish.  That will change soon as Chaos and Crocodiles is putting out a new set of "soft" pastel holos that I must have. I've no idea what that means, but they are so pretty I must have them.

We all know the drama I went through to get a set of the Secret Agent collection because back then, stupid me said I didn't  need it.  I ain't making that mistake twice!

I need to go through and do another blog sale.  Just seems like the brands I have, people aren't really buying. Like my Rescue Beauty Lounge ones.  I don't have the motivation for that kind of project at the moment, so it's a moot point right now.

Let's get to this shall we?  Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Painted Polish by Lexi Bells of Ireland.  It's a gorgeous light scattered holo and I love it.

You can see the scattered holo here and it's just gorgeous.  Next I went ahead and did my five sided flowers as I knew I could accomplish that.  I worked really hard on this, trying to get the flowers spaced just right.  I used my Mundo White and Cream to make them.

What the hell I did to mess up the last photo on my pointer finger I've no idea, but it made me feel like a big fat failure.  I had worked so damn hard and the flowers are spaced just like the pattern and I go and ruin it.  When I tried to fix it, I made it even worse.  I told the girl I was doing this with that if she didn't think I was worthy, I was ok with that.

She actually thought these were cute and decided I did ok.  That made me feel better.

Why are we our own worst critic?????

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
