I recently saw this design by All Lacquered Up and wanted to replicate it in autumn colors.
I recently watched the Guillermo Del Toro movie Mama. Once I stopped trying to hide my face in my dog’s tummy, I noticed that all the movies that creep me out most feature big-eyed waify pale ghosts with lots of wild dark hair. That’s a trope used so often it’s cliche now, but never fails to freak me out. I used to train martial arts, and sometimes worked with a skinny girl with long, dark hair that she used to let just hang over her face. Because I outranked her, she had to line up behind me, and although she was really a sweet young woman, I would catch her out of the corner of my eye and get creeped out, especially since I had recently watched The Ring. Poor kid.
I can’t believe The Walking Dead is back on and I’m still a season behind!
Ok, so trying to get back on track with my posts, here’s my themed mani from a few weeks ago. I am really, really bad at camouflage, which seems strange since it’s just squiggly, random lines, but there you go. Ugh. I must have spent about four hours trying to get this right, including dying time. Bleh. After this, I went out and bought a nail wheel for practice. 😀
Like I said in my last post, I’m late with everything because I’ve been sick with terrible back pain for a few weeks. I actually started the school year last week, and I’m optimistic about my classes, if not all the administrative craziness we have to accomplish this year. For those of you lucky enough to start after Labor Day, welcome back to school!
I tried to come up with some patriotic designs for the 4th of July, but I just wasn’t getting anywhere. And then I thought, well, why do I need to do a flag design? I wanted to think of something distinctly American. What’s more American than Levi’s blue jeans?
Happy 4th to those who celebrate it!
Such an appropriate theme for this week! And while that wasn’t our thought when we planned this challenge (rainbow is one of the themes from the 31-day challenged Becca and I used as a template), this little bit of serendipity makes me smile. Hooray for another step for equality! If only the Voter Protection Act decision had been equally on target. *sigh*
Okay, back to nails.
I originally planned some sort of epic nail art with fish and a little crab and everything, but the truth is, I’m bad at art. 🙂
