To Boldly Go

To Boldly Go

So I got to go to a sci-fi convention thus past weekend! My Granma paid my way and she came with me. I had so much fun; I got to meet Sir Patrick Stewart (Picard), Brent Spiner (Data), and several others. I also got to meet the Okudas, who created the look of Star Trek.

My nails I did in one of my new colors, a holographic one, called Dazzle Diva by E. L. F.

Happy Birthday Star Trek!!

Happy Birthday Star Trek!!

This Saturday, September 8, is the 46th birthday of the television series Star Trek. I am a very big Trekkie, and yes, I have attended conventions in costume. But I try to keep in classy. I have always been a Star Trek fan, ever since I was a kid. I love the way they adapted literature (Homar, Shakespeare) to the genre, and dealt with big issues like race, government oversight, and parental rights. And there’s also space battles, time travel paradoxes, and aliens. ­čÖé

So my nail design this week paid homage┬áto this illustrious anniversary. The thumb has one of the phrases used in the title sequence of the original series as well as the second series (The Next Generation). The complete phrase, “To Boldly Go Where No One Has Gone Before.”

The pointer is a┬áfreehand of the original Star Trek logo. It’s freehand, so please allow some design leeway. ­čÖé

My other three nails represent the three uniform colors on the show, gold, red, and blue. And by the way, only one red-shirt ended up with injuries. The black tip got smudged when I put on the top coat. But other than that they are both still alive.

Fortune favors the bold (Virgil). So Go Boldly!

And may the Great Bird of the Galaxy bless your travels!
