Show Me Your Teeth!

i'm finally going through the memory card and editing pictures! they'll most likely be posted randomly, so that's why you'll see some pictures with no gap, some with a crappy gap, and some with a slightly better gap since i'm still trying to get that technique down. anyway, i'm just going to start off by saying that this isn't very good. it's good for a first attempt, and considering i haven't tried to do something this complex before. but overall, still kind of bad.

now, i didn't just randomly say "hey, i'll do some vampire fangs nail art!". this was partially inspired by True Blood (i'm re-watching the first and second seasons to make the wait for season three seem shorter!), and partially by the Lady GaGa song "Teeth". i used nail art brushes that i got at a local beauty supply. i don't remember exactly what the brush types were, but i used a long thin one to draw the outline, a shorter, fuller one to fill in the teeth, and another short one for the blood. i used China Glaze Liquid Leather for the base, OPI Alpine Snow for the teeth, and Zoya Isla for the blood. i'll probably try this again soon, with some serious tweaking.
