Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

So I found a great Pinspiration from Kerruticles. You should check out their site.

I made a first attempt with colors I already had, but it really didn’t jive with me. My orange wasn’t right. Kerruticles called their’s “Saffron” and I didn’t have one that really matched, it was just an orange. Well, I found one as well as the right shade of yellow. I was much happier with my 2nd attempt.

Monday was my girlfriend’s husband’s birthday. He is an Edmonton (Canada) native and a fan of the Edmonton Oilers hockey team. She surprised him by renting out an ice rink for an hour and the group of us (attempted)  a hockey game. It was really funny watching him skate circles around all us Floridians. For my nails I did the Oilers colors of royal blue and orange. Of course, most of my students thought they were Gator (football) colors.

Happy Hunger Games!

Happy Hunger Games!

Happy Hunger Games! My best friend threw a Hunger Games Party for her sister. There was a princess party last week, but I was are my convention. 🙂 I didn’t do my nails, since I went as an extra at the Reaping. But I did She For Who the Party Was For. I did “Girl on Fire” nails.

A Bright New Year

A Bright New Year

So its only the 11th of January and I’m already having a great, bright year. God has been gracious and generous and has provided for me. Even the little things like a school calendar. My nails were, unintentionally, as bright as my week.

Somewhere in Oz

Somewhere in Oz

Ok, so I’ve really fallen behind in my posts, I do apologize. So I have several posts to show you. Again I apologize  for the delay, these past few days have just been hectic.

First of we have a Buffy inspired nail, specifically Drusilla. I loved the way this turned out, it looked so funky and fun. Drusilla may be creepy, but she’s got great “taste.” Heehee

For Halloween I was Dorothy from Wizard of Oz. I’ve done several Dorothy themed birthdays and I had all the props, and I borrowed the dress from a friend. And other than being a very popular choice, Oz is also a running joke in one of my science fiction shows (Stargate SG1). I had originally done a character on each nail, but they were very blah. So I left Glinda and Elfaba, as well as one Tin Man.

Finally, I did my nails for a Doctor Who convention. I went as Amy Pond, and she tends to go for the more funky nail colors. We had so much fun at the convention!

Orange and Grey

Orange and Grey

So I pinned a picture from Pinterest because the grey and orange nails really struck me; I thought the orange accent was very striking against the grey. Well, then I actually went to the website. They’re not grey, she just shot the picture in black & white and left one nail in color. Anyway, I did the grey and orange anyway, and it I really like how it turned out. Like I thought, very striking, and a nice fall combo. 🙂
