Passion Pit

Hi everyone! This weekend has completely drained me but I don't regret one bit of it. Last night I went to a concert to see Passion Pit with Matt & Kim. I'm a big fan of both groups and their performances were spectacular. The music was awesome but the highlight of my night was meeting Kim at the merch table later. She's actually the coolest person ever and incredibly down to earth.

Of course I couldn't go to the event without some Passion Pit nail art, so I did these nails inspired by the cover of their most recent album, Gossamer. I really didn't think that these would turn out well but I'm actually really pleased with the outcome. I don't think I've ever painted words on my nails before, so I was so happy that I got the position and size right :)

On the accent nails I started with American Apparel T-Shirt. I used the watercolour technique with American Apparel Dynasty, American Apparel Rose Bowl, American Apparel Mannequin and more American Apparel T-Shirt to make the background. Then I used a striping brush and American Apparel Dynasty for the silhouettes, and American Apparel African Violet to shade and for the words. I painted the rest of the nails with American Apparel Dynasty.

Are you a fan of either of these bands? If so, tell me your favourite tracks! :) Also, I'm really behind with blog reading right now but I'm going to catch up within a couple of days, I promise!
