OH BOY YOU GUYS, are you in for some craziness today!
My wonderfully talented roommate Dayna (Daynasaur) has had this really cool project going on over at her blog, Light and Sugar, where she posts a portrait every Tuesday. They are often themed and feature crazy-cool makeup that she does herself. This week, she wanted to do a photo of someone that wasn't herself, and of course, I was happy to oblige!
We began the process of turning me into a nail ninja. We had been saving this idea for a while now, and I was so excited that it finally happened!
As you can see, I painted some wheels completely silver to represent my "nail ninja stars." They will knock you out with their fumes! ;) The silver on the wheels and on my actual nails, too, is Wet N Wild Silvivor.
My original idea for my nails was to do a silver to black gradient, but I didn't like it as much in execution as I did in the abstract. So instead, I painted some freehand kunai on each of the nails with a black creme. I love the way it turned out and it's much more ninja-specific anyway.
Below, you can get a better look at the makeup that Dayna did on me for this shoot. She did a great job -- I look like a pretty fierce warrior if I do say so myself.
If you are interested in the specific makeup she used, she has more info on her blog.
What do you think? Maybe I should be the new mascot for NinjaPolish.com?
I had so so so much fun on this project, and I hope you guys enjoyed our collaboration! Check out more of Dayna's work and follow her over on Light and Sugar!
