Nail Art: Welcome to Night Vale

Hi everyone! It's been a while and I am so sorry! This has been the longest, supposedly least stressful move ever and we're still not completely in but we're finally sleeping in our new apartment! FINALLY.

Last week I also finally had some time to sit down and do my nails. I think I mentioned in my post about RH Viola that it was the perfect Welcome To Night Vale colour. Welcome to Night Vale is this fantastic podcast full of subversive humour and set in an 1984-esque Orwellian small town where lots of really strange things happen and everything might be a conspiracy. If you've got a dark sense of humour and like clever radio hosts AND a canon, biracial gay couple, you should really check it out!

Okay! So I started with RH Viola and Revlon Blackest Black.


I didn't take any step by step photos apparently, so here's the finished design without topcoat. For the eye, I used Julep Kylie which I have yet to swatch and then acrylic paint for the black and white lines.

I definitely bought a shirt when they came to do live performances way back in July and it made the perfect background for my photos =3

Just for completion, here's the other side. I ran out of room on my ring finger nail and I do NOT have the line work dexterity for writing on my thumbnail like the other hand but there you have it! On the pinky I also have RH Crystal =3








Well I wish I had better photos! I think I may switch back to my trusty blackberry. I always got good photos I was happy with with that one, even though both these cameras are 5MP.

Or maybe I'll splurge on a macro-lens =P

Goodnight Night Vale, Goodnight!
