Hope everyone's transition back to work yesterday wasn't too stressful. It's Tuesday, which means that tonight I'll hopefully be attending the local camera club meetup and maybe start learning some stuffs (and dare I say it, meeting new people?) After several hours yesterday playing with my camera settings, I finally managed to get some pics of this gorgeous nail art that I created for the 31DC Day 6 prompt, Half and Half. I also took pics with my old compact camera, which are at the end of this post so you can compare.
I decided to work all in purples for this look, because I've had some beauties in my untried that were screaming for me to use them!

Then using a short striping brush, I pulled two lines of each contrasting color over from the corners and I LOVE the effect!
I could easily have left the look as it was, but I wanted to bling it up a bit, so I added these Swarovski crystals to each corner of the original diagonal line. You can't really tell but the crystals on my ring finger are AB stones, while the others are all clear.
As promised, below are the original pics that I took with my point-and-shoot. You can see that I was definitely able to bring more light in, but I'm still adjusting the settings on the DSLR to get perfect depth of field and focus. I'm really glad I took the time to experiment with it while I was still wearing this look, because in these pics, you can hardly see the contrast between the colors!
For more Half and Half looks (and if you're as curious to see how everyone else interpreted this prompt as I am), be sure to check out the inlinkz below.
Hope you're all having a fantastic week, and I'll see ya tomorrow!
