Continuing my thought from last night... I've been kvetching about being restricted to one color all month (by my choice!), but it is true that having a limited palette and limited shades within that color has forced me to be more creative, in terms of coming up with this many manicures that are all the same color but still distinct from each other. I don't know if I'll ever do a project like this again, but it's been a wonderful stretch.

Lately, I'm also posting my pics to Twitter and Instagram. I'm poisontaster at both places, if you'd rather follow me either of those places.

So last night I was trawling tumblr's nail art tag. As you do. Completely aside from looking for inspiration for myself, I like seeing the interesting, crazy and sometimes puzzling things other people do to/for their nails. It's an education.

Anyway, I ran across this manicure, which reminds me of the glazing on some Chinese cups I'd bought for my mom once upon a time, and I decided to see if I could duplicate it for myself. It's a gradient, which I've already done once (twice) to reasonable success and it brought in the new skill of trying to free-hand painted lunulas over the gradient. Cool.

Free-handing: not for chickens. )

My original thought about doing a Black Widow manicure was that I was going to try and do a tape off manicure where I put a red hourglass over a black nail (and I may do that at another time, because that just sounds cool) but at the last minute, I decided to try a half-moon manicure, something I've never done.
