Teal Bump!

Tuesday is Officially Hump-Day’s Hump Day! Bumps and Humps all round!

I’ve been a little slack with my Talon love recently – focusing on getting back into painting a much larger T-Rex Scale works scale. Will post them soon… ish. Being a Raptor, you know I ADORE all greens – especially Jewel/Neon tones… so when these are paired… with a side of glitter. Cannot even. Like a lysdexic penguin in algebra… I really do struggle.

This week has been fairly tame… I do need more action. So Hump-Day-Hump-Bump-Teal-Props it is, try saying that three times really fast without a.) drolling b.) swearing c.) sounding slightly licdexy. Legit.

Get the look – dark teal base on all talons, excluding feature – that scaly little raptor-piggy is a glitter. Finish with contrasting neon studs. Simple.

Make a slow week a little more awesome with this look – it’s a bit cheeky, but very wearable. Get into Hump-Day’s-Hump-Day!!! Wheee!!!

See even this little spawnling has the right idea... Make teal more Fabulous!

Share your experiences with getting more excitement into your Start-of-mid-week Festivities. Between glitter bombing and doing needless Drag makeovers on yourself… that will never venture outdoors…

Festive Holly-cination

…so good, it makes you want to chow down on your own digits – 3D Holly, Matte Cable and Confectionery Sweet Candy Cane... Sweet ez, bru.

I always feel duty bound to go full Balls Baubles to the Wall when this time of year rocks around, as I work in an office and for majority of the time – attempt to appear to conform – like those Lizards that everyone thinks are Snakes… but they’re not. They are in fact, just VERY awkward Lizards. That’s me.

Moving on – I was stuck between the kitschy cute appeal of Confectionery Candy Canes, Nanna endorsed knitwear (itchier looking the better!) and Holly 3D Detailing… and in the spirit of the season (get used to this), have it all. Then I’ll undo the top button on my pants, go find a soft surface to sleep off this GIGANTIC food coma… while gestating a Boxing Day Miracle. #NoRegerts #NoFibre #ChewYourFoodB!tch

This time of year was always when my fellow Raptor-Spawnlings would either be HORRENDOUSLY evil or HORRENDOUSLY sweet to one another – generally because you never knew what was coming next and if it was a “lull” or just general affection. Then BAM you’d be locked in a rabbits hutch, in the BLISTERING heat – at least I had company. Her name was Snowy and she enjoyed the way my hair smelt.

Big families during this time – it’s important to understand the pecking order and how to sidestep it. There is limited supply of everything! So stock up and have a table auction. Raptor A:“I’ll trade you this slice of fruit cake for that friand.” Raptor B:“Throw in that merriagne and you’ve got a deal!”

Get the look – Pinky and Thumb – white gold pearl base and finish with thin/thick diagonal lines. Middle and Index red opaque base, keep layering your knit cable design till it’s fully 3D. Feature, gold base with 3 red pearls in Holly formation and finish with a glitter leaf detail. Voila.

I have literally had people grabbing my hand all week with this look – more hand action than a teenager at Summer Camp… or so I hear, only summer camp I had was with my rabbit. LOL. Legit, people love this look – the 3D to Glitter just makes it POP.

Ghost, Ghouls and Dudes trapped behind my Talons – Oh my. I do love Halloween, good pranks, good excuse to dress like a COMPLETE Lunatic… I don’t like dressing like a hussy, tramp, or skank – as I’ve said before – I like dressing like the weirdest, most abstract ideas/characters, EVER.

Share your experiences with scary ghosts and ghouls talons… were your nails as terrifying to apply as they were for me? … Legit tricky. Or should I say – Trick or Treat.

Radioactive Leopard Print

Caution – Don’t feed exotic pets Nuclear by-products or line their kitty litters with plutonium… or this happens.

Sure it gets them peppier, but then they get BIGGER and GLOWIER! We want healthy Growly Kitties, not Angry Glowy kitties – this is real life… not an episode of HeMan!

Ideally, when applied in nature animal print is a ridiculously good camouflage – Radioactive Leopard print is the exact opposite… people are going to notice this driving past you (at speed) in their cars… careful, they might be dazzled and careen into a ditch, whateves. Be vigilant.

Get the look, coat all talons in 2 coats of an opaque white – this makes the colours pop! Excluding the feature talon apply 2 coats of neon lime – I made mine with 1 part neon green to 3 parts neon yellow. Create Leopard Spots by blotting small dots of pink/purple glitter then semi surrounding in black blobs… blobsscientific terms her, Darlings. Finish the look my applying a silver holographic to the still white feature talon.

As my last post was a little too easy/wearable – when in doubt or feelin’ a bit flat… just add more. More glitter. More studs. More rhinestonesetcetera. No such thing as too much, just a lack of confidence to tell people to love it or shove it.

I’m going to start doing shorter posts for a spell, November onwards I’ll push them back out into funny posts.

How to get this look – pay a buttload OR matte black all your talons excluding your feature – that one is gold. Gold glitter chevron (reference to last look) French tip for the Thumb. Bejewelled French tip (with studs, rhinestone, glitter and caviar) for Pointer. Reverse bejewelled French tip/moontip for the Index. Gold holo stripe for Pinky. Feature talon is lashings of bejewelling – really slather it on.

Share your experiences with OTT jewelled talons – any injuries, damage to property, successfully fought off other Raptors?

Once You Go Matte Black…

…you never go back. If anything, your affliction will get worse. No amount of therapy can shake this one. Official equation is: (Matte x Chevron) x Bronze Glitter = UNTREATABLE ‘MAZEBALLNESS.

*Warning Wearable Post* Well it’s actually Black, Matte, Glitter, Pattern and Precious Metal Hue – but I did nearly fail mathematics when I was a senior. I was also the most vocal about “when in the name of Hell will I ever use this non-sense?!” Poor naive youngling, fast-forward 5 years and I use equations on a daily basis in my line of work, Legit.

Despite being slightly bitter about my current position in my life vs. my mathmatic skills, fancy talons do help. I like to refer to them when frankly, I don’t give a Van-Damme or when I want to give that impression… it drives people cray-cray.

Also, if you’re known for having the attention spam span of a juvenile hummingbird – it’s all good. I’m not being rude… it’s just how I am. You know, B!tch, glitter and all that.

Get this look, shimmer gunmetal grey for your thumb and pinky talons. Matte black for index and pointer finger, finish with a raised glossy chevron patterns – I had an upwards and a downward chevron with a continued line across both talons. Feature talon is a thick bronze glitter, topped with a fine holo-topcoat. Scho-Mush Shimmmeerrr!!!

These talons are as fun as finishing your mathematics homework, and if you’re one of the minorities that ENJOYS mathematics… it’s like you’ve just been given a crispy new text book and a juicy set of highlighters. Cute sick youngling, destroy!
