new creative flow

heyo! flourish of posts today =) i just jumped into painting for the first time ever basically, about 2 weeks ago. i've been stocking up on different colors of acrylic paints and canvas. i already have a ton of art supplies and 1 canvas so i started with what i had.. here is my first finished painting from my adult life.. i'm fairly proud, and think i'll be creating 2-3 more panels to make it a set.. while i love it, it feels like part of a whole.. just like you and me =)

thanks for looking =)

new hair!

i am here to share my new and unexpected hair with you. when i went to get it done, the friend doing my hair said she could do the rainbow hair i asked for.. turns out, she couldn't. on top of leaving with a totally messed up hairjob, she allowed me a very disrespectful experience. sad shit aside, i got to fix it myself and went with red on my new growth, and hot pink on my ends. a few days ago, i covered it in purple to make it a little more dimensional.. i felt like the red i had going on made me seem goth, which was embarrassing since i'm an adult now haha! so now, it's a bit darker and in the light it has this amazing purple sheen! i LOVE IT. my goal for the future is pastel, so i'll probably have to get a dramatic hair cut =/ do not want.

i used: Manic Panic Vampire red on new growth blended down, and Manic Panic Hot Hot Pink on the ends and blended well into the other color.
later, i put Manic Panic Ultra Violet all over it!

these are the pics from right after it was done.

these pics are from yesterday- the current color. i really liked how i styled it, so i thought i'd share.. if anyone is interested in how i did this, let me know! it's so gd easy!

I realize my 'current color' pics aren't too clear, so in my upcoming posts you'll get some better quality pics =)

thanks for looking =)

hello! i'm really excited because.. i'm getting my hair done again on the 13th, so tomorrow. it's been almost 2 months since i got it done last and i never posted pictures of how it turned out.. so here they are!

i plan on growing it out even longer, and totally leaving my bangs alone. i've come to the conclusion that bangs are too much of a pain and i'd rather have them long enough to forget about. here's a photo of my inspiration for tomorrow, and i want more of the canteloupe-orange than is pictured here:

do you have any hair color goals or desires? do you love what you have? thanks for looking!

outer space nails experiment

hello! these photos are of my first real try at doing freehand nail art. i used a tiny paint brush, a makeup sponge/wedge, an assortment of polish colors, and a shotglass of acetone. i first saw a photo of 'galaxy nails' or 'nebula nails' on a message board, and got REALLY excited, so i googled a tutorial. i was very disappointed to find only one half-ass tutorial that basically said, 'get a sponge and put these colors on your nails and you're done' - it had no mention of any kind of technique, so when i tried to use the tutorial, i failed. hard. instead, i removed it all and googled actual photos from space and did what i could. enjoy =)

even though my left hand turned out like a paint splattered canvas instead of anything resembling space, i like 'em a lot.
