Meme Week Nail Art Challenge Day 6- Condescending Wonka

So much time and so little to do! Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it. Thank you. Happy Friday my friends! May you have so much to do and just enough time to do it in ;) So as you can tell by the movie quote, today's theme is Wonka, condescending Wonka to be exact. This meme is pretty self explanatory  so I will just show you this little gem I found

Really? How douchey is that, lol? So the theme for today is candy themed manis and I thought up about a million things to do before settling on an idea.... and then changing that again lol. For today's franken, which some of you may have seen on PAA, I started by using a bottle of Icing "OMG" polish which is a tiny matte neon pink glitter toper in a slightly pink tinted base. I then decided I wanted it more colorful so I added .008 matte hexes from glitter unique in neon yellow, neon blue, neon green, and neon pink. I of course had to pour some polish out to make room for the extra glitter and then ultimately add thinner to make the polish less gloopy and thick. But overall as a franken, it was pretty simple! Check it out!

Before and after! Sorry about the iphone shot


So I started off painting two coats of Covergirl Outlast Snow Storm, a white crelly-ish polish and then followed it up with two coats of the OMG franken. My next thought was to do a simple stamping manicure using my bundle monster plate which had a set of three lollipops on it. Wrong, so wrong. I managed to get one decent lollipop on my index finger and then try as I might, could not get another image to stamp again to save my life. So I then decided to try and cover up said lollipop using a .118 size holographic blue dot from glitter unique. I placed one dot on each finger using a tiny dollop of fast try top coat. I then free handed a wrapper on either side using white acrylic paint. Finally, I also free handed stripes on each candy using a fine nail art brush to make them look more like candies and less like bows.  I then finished it off with one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dry. Now since I am left handed, all my free hand work was done with my non-dominant hand. So keep that in mind!


Invention, my dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple!


This photo of the glitter is more color accurate


So there you have it, my sweet Wonka candy themed mani (I made a joke! get it? Eh?). I ended up liking this way more than I thought, especially for having to change it at the last second. What do you guys think? Do they look like candies and not bow ties? Overall, simple franken that definitely helped to give a candy vibe!

Be sure to tune into the other ladies' candy themed manis! I will be back tomorrow for the final installment of the Meme Week Nail Art Challenge.... Ain't Nobody Got Time for Dat. YES!

So until we meet again, remember to keep it classy any creative.

Today's Ingredients Are From:
* OMG nail polish- Icing in the mall, and on sale!
* .118 blue holo dots and .008 hexes in neon blue, neon yellow neon green, and neon pink- Glitter Unique
