I was thinking that Chicago was going to just skip right over Spring. But alas, the weather is starting to get some act right. FINALLY! And with the warming temperatures, I was feeling more playful…on my nails, at least. I started by chopping them off which is always like a fresh start and always seems to make nail art more fun for me. I am also seemingly way more productive. Then…..
A bunch of Essie colors and a couple OPI colors later…. along with some dots with acrylic paint in: yellow, green, blue, pink and gray
I won’t lie…. I just knew we would be waiting a week to find out the final results of this election.
The excitement and calm that I experienced with the election result that Obama would be our president for FOUR MORE YEARS!?!?!?!?! I slept so much better last night.
And WHAT A RELIEF not to have to see another negative political ad for this election!
This Obama-inspired manicure was done for my beautiful client Sophia for her VIP attendance at the McCormick Place election night CELEBRATION for Obama! And her nails most definitely captured the mood of the event!!!! I loved them.
OPI – “Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue”
OPI – “The Living Daylights”
China Glaze – “White On White” Julep – “Sienna” w/acrylic paint in blue and red for Obama “FORWARD” logo
Inspired by my new twitter friend @LacqueredAffair . . . who has a most wonderful manicure avi….
Though I don’t really do gems on my nails because of my (self-diagnosed) tactile OCD, I loved the design. So, I had to do my own take on the manicure that involved nothing I could easily yank off my nail. LOL.
So I did my celebratory nails… complete with confetti and a few tiny streamers on accent nails.
I used a no-chip gel polish this time! La Palm Gel II’s – “Out of My Way” as the base color…
…and my wonderfully beloved polka dots in acrylic paint. ( I heart dots!! forever).
I have planned a “do NOTHING” day. Two hour massage from my favorite massage therapist, a triple venti soy caramel macchiato from Starbucks, a cupcake from Sprinkles…. and then kicking up my feet for a pedicure…. then seriously kicking up my feet to just chill.
