If you've been following me for a while, you may know that I LOVE snooker. I watched it as a kid with my dad, I watched it as a teenager, and after a few years' hiatus when I was a student and forgot about it, I've been going to the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield to watch the World Championships for the last eleven (omg! it really is that long!) years. The World Championship started today in Sheffield and and of course I was there, with my nails, to watch.
I have used Barry M Spring Green (this is my go-to snooker baize nail varnish, haha!) as a base, and then added rhinestones to make the balls of a 147.
There are 15 reds, and then yellow-green-brown-blue-pink-an-black (name that choon!) although my yellow isn't very yellow, and somehow my brown looks orange in these photos.
These were so sparkly!
Unfortunately the rhinestones didn't last the whole day, but I felt nicely glitzy while they lasted.
I am far more happy with these than I was with last year's nails. I've also managed to find a photo of 2011's nails:
And the less said about 2009's nails the better!
I'm disgusted at myself! I keep thinking my nails, my painting and my photos are rubbish, but I just need to look back at these to realise that there has been some improvement in the last year or two!
