Pharrell

Ever since I saw the Jay Z mini- movie during Game 6 of the NBA Finals, I was obsessing over Pharrell’s cap….. and his style. 

Everyone can’t do this!!!!!  That hat is EVERYTHING! Smile …and now so are my nails!

Ick Green

I feel drawn to the most drab, split pea, baby poo green nail polish colors. LOL

Like I HAVE to use them because #1) No one else seems to want to use them and #2) I have to prove that the color is really not ugly!

I love this color! ha ha  It’s like a murky chartreuse with a shimmer in the finish.  I pretty much nullified the shimmer with my dots though.  oh well Winking smile.

Play time

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

FOUR. MORE. YEARS.

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!  Smile

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.
