Turquoise and Pinks

Turquoise and Pinks

So these are last weeks nails. I am so behind!
First we have a turquoise with a gold accent on the ring finger. I had several people ask me if the gold “ring” finger was significant. Sadly, no.

Next we have a pre-Valintine Day pink gradient. Very fun (and easy) and I got several compliments.

And these are my little piggies for this past week. The ink sparkle didn’t spread as much as I thought it would; it sort of clumped and you can’t see as much of the black as I’d like. But it still looks nice.

So this is the winner of my last poll. Thanks to the two of you who voted. I’ve gotten several compliments on them already. The color with the sparkle really pops! I think I’ll do the purple mutes with the sparkle accent next. But not until this one is done, I really like it. ­čÖé

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!
