10/24/2012 Candy!! I get a bellyache just thinking about it...

OK, still trying to work out a way to do eyeball candy. Alas, that failed.

Then I thought, well, if I can't make a good eyeball...then I'll try the black cats (a new Peep relation apparently). 

If that is a bust, I will fall back on a fall staple (used to be just Easter when I was kid, but apparently no holiday is immune to the peeps bunny factory and it was inevitable that these would come.)

Swatches were my friend this round.  O.O  However, I did not swatch this one...odd...because I rarely ever go into a mani without practicing first. Maybe I am gaining an instinct?!  One can hope...

I think I managed to create something that looks like it could be a nail art peep...the shape isn't there, but the faces are...

I caught just enough sparkle to be like the fine sugar on the real peeps.  Not sure I quite nailed it, but not bad for an un-swatched, untested design/effect.

I used WnW Club Havana as the base...a near perfect match to a Peep in real life.  Then I used an SC black nail art brush and overlaid that with SH Disco Ball, VERY, VERY lightly.  SO, what do YOU think?

Come back tomorrow to see what I come up with!

  1. They look so happy! I really like the dusting of glitter on top, it makes them look like the candy even more!

  2. Very cute! Pumpkin Peeps are my favorite!
