Inspiration is so interesting.
I have had this photo album for over a decade and a half, I’m sure.
…front facing photo is older than that. SMH (OMG I AM OLD – the horror!!)
I see it every time I am in my living room.
…..and all of a sudden, I wanted something similar on my nails.
Base of a white no-chip polish. I used a variety of “regular” OPI and butter London polishes for the colored “bricks”.
I hope that this lasts on my nails for a couple of weeks – I really like all the colors.
I remember first learning about “calico” from my grandparents’ cat.
Oddly, I liked that cat….. but I no longer possess that sentiment about animals.
I don’t hate them, I guess…. but I don’t want them around me. I don’t like animal hair… or dander. I’m allergic.
I’m more a puppy person…. but dogs stink too. hahaha
….That’s some no-chip polish design action going on…. :-)
That is what my brain cells have been doing for the past month or so.
I cut my nails off.
And while I have been enjoying the level of productivity that occurs each time I “start over” on my nail growth, I haven’t decided on any nail art that I even want on my nails right now. It feels almost weird.
I have been seeing a lot of nude colored nails recently. And I’m loving the clean, non-contrasting look of them all.
I started with a little pink… gelish – “Pink Smoothie”
Then Autumn came:
ibd Just Gel – “ Fall Forward”
Now, I’m just a pretty blank canvas of gelish – “Little Princess”
just looks barely there.
ibd Just Gel – “Sand Dune”
w/dots wonderful dots
You already know why this video is here. LOLOLOL!
I got some really kind compliments on these dots. Dots never fail to make the best impressions apparently. :-)
It’s been a while since my last post, but I have been taking care of my nails. I wore this beautiful red for a solid 2 weeks!!! AND with no design….. can’t even believe that.
gelish – “Hot Rod Red”
gelish – “Little Princess” w/ gold leopard spots
Sheer no-chip base color makes this design just neutral enough. Then there is that spot of gold to subtly jazz up my design.
I still absolutely adore dots! I don’t think it will ever change.
gelish – “Black Pool” w/ white dots in acrylic paint
I love this “Evolution of Smooth” lip balm. Pictured is the “Summer Fruit” one….. but I’m desperately searching for the Limited Edition “Fresh Watermelon” one. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. LOL
Have a safe and happy holiday!!!
