Since my last post I have been thinking about these products and what I keep going back too, what I keep focusing on is the colours of the glitter tubs and the artistic pigments. Turquoises and purples...instant thought mermaids but I'm not happy yet with just doing a mermaid shoot, it has to be something even more amazing, a little more involved (and trust me I love mermaids, I have a mermaid tattoo hehe) I can't quite explain what I mean! So today I decided to get out all of the products play with them and test them out.
The first things I wanted to try were the glitters and the artistic pigments.
THE ARTISTIC PIGMENTS ARE AMAZING AND WHAT I WANT TO CENTRE THE SHOOT AROUND. Sorry I just had to yell that haha, you can't tell from the photo (its just a quick phone snap and I didn't use much at all because I didn't want to waste it - I want to make sure we have plenty for the photoshoot!) but the colours of all of them are really getting the creative juices flowing and I think I am going to stick with a sea theme - but my brain is thinking some sort of elaborate fantastic sea creature - I have been wanting to make elaborate head pieces for a long time now and I think I need to start designing something for this shoot.
Next I tried on the nail polish FLIRT! in Tingling Fruit and Groupie. Clearly by these photos I am no expert at applying nail polish - but would you believe these are only 1 coat (and admittedly I applied it pretty quick). Loving the Groupie (a dark glittery blue) for this shoot and thinking my sea creature will need long nails similiar to my Ice Queen shoot
Thats all I have for you today. Time to fine tune my concept and getting to work making head pieces and prop!
