Olympic themed Hello Kitty nails

Monday, 30 July 2012

So, in the set of Fimo Canes I bought the other week here there was a cane of Hello Kitty faces.  I love the whole tackiness of this so I decided to do Hello Kitty, Olympic Style nails, in the colours of the Gymnastics arena.  (I've been watching loads of the Gymnastics, I love it, I kind of wish I could do a flip, or even a half decent handstand...)

Hello Kitty nails

I used the following polish:
Dark glitter pink on Union Jack is Kiko 277
Corally pink on all nails is Kiko 282
Light pink on all nails is Barry M Baby Pink
Glitter is Deborah Lippmann Candy Shop
Right thumb base is Nubar Brilliant

So, I pinked up the Union Jack, did some dotting on a few nails and used a Bundle Monster stamp for the circle pattern.  I tried and failed miserably again at doing the olympic rings, I tried a straw (fail) and then free hand (ridiculous fail), so the stamping was the next best thing.  I then also covered up the fact that the stamp is too small for my fingers, (and chances of me lining it up without messing it up are nil), with a pink tip on my middle finger.

I cut thin slices of the fimo canes, and used Sally Hansen instra-dri top coat, and then put the pieces on.  They stay pretty firm with just top coat, as long as you let them dry properly.  And there you go, Hello Kitty Olympics!
