Black Manicure + Nail Art?

Okay, this weekend, specifically Sunday, I had lots of errands I wanted to get done. One of them was to give my self a new manicure and pedicure. Well, those two things took up a lot of time because I kept messing up the look I wanted. I was inspired by a Twitter picture that the lovely Brittany from Clumps of Mascara tweeted of her gorgeous, funky blue and green manicure. So I said to myself, I think I'll try that. Well, I tried. For at least 2 hours. I used lots of nail polish remover and black nail polish to end up with this. Nothing like the picture of B's nails! Also, for some reason my Sally Hansen Black Out nail polish was the consistency of stringy, clumpy glue; so imagine trying to do your nails with Elmer's quick drying glue. Yeah. No bueno.

I'm not sure why the pink on my nail looks red, but I took a picture of my nails + the nail art polishes I used to prove it's pink. This is the same look I did for my pedicure. It turned out okay, I guess because I can see it from far away. By the fourth episode in a row of The Nanny on Nick at Nite(why?) that I was watching while the polish dried I was frustrated, so this is what I ended up with.

Oh well, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.


  1. I think the black is cute! And LOVING the new layout girl!

  2. Thanks! :-) Once I figured out how to do HTML it was easy to google like you said.

  3. Oh yes...totally lovin' the new layout. Awesomeness! And I think your design blows mine out of the water. Great job, sis!!

  4. Pretty nails that you've done. Better get some polish thinner. You really need it when your collecting polish. I love your new layout.
