Now, most of you probably saw this on my facebook, but of course, I gotta share it here too! After 3 months of frustration taking pictures, I finally made my own lightbox!
I started with my box that my last Zoya order came in (the one with all of the Remove +.... I am set for AT LEAST 3 years! lol)... and I cut all of the wings off.
|Note Arwen's kitty fort in the background. :)|
Mocha even stopped by to give his sniff of approval!
Then, using an old white sheet, I hot-glued fabric to the inside of the box, covering all of the square holes except the front one (which is the hole I put my hand in). I taped a piece of poster board to the inside of the box, curving from the top back edge to the bottom front corner. Lastly, I glued a square of sheet over the top of the box, where the wings used to be.
Then, I hooked up my FULL SPECTRUM (*This part is important*), and....
It's done! The whole project cost me less than $4. :)
Here is the first picture I took inside my new photography studio. Please mind the hot glue damage.
Yes, the polish is mutilated, but the lighting is gorgeous! Then, I freed my fingers from the horror, and polished on Color Club Wild At Heart! Keep in mind, these pictures are not the best... I'm still getting the hang of taking them in the box. Also, the holo did NOT want to come out and play.... :( Still GORGEOUS, though! The first picture is outside of the light box...
The last one is my fav... the lighting turned out so soft and pretty!
Also, WHY did no one mention that WaH is a ONE COATER! Yeah, these pictures are one coat. I added a second later for good measure. :)
Overall, I am so happy with the way my box turned out! I feel like I can get more color-accurate pictures now! :D I think I am going to get a different kind of light though.... like a clip on one?
One more thing, just for shiggles I did a comparison between Wild at Heart and China Glaze Virtual Violet!
As you can see, WaH is a bit darker, but they have almost the same amount/type of scattered holo, and the same finish. Not close enough to not want them both.... and WaH has a bit more red shimmer to it. :)
Get ready for Pink Wednesday tomorrow!
