All day Saturday it had been pouring rain and I thought it'd pass by Sunday. Wake up the next morning and there's that incessant rain as well as huge gusts of wind! The people on the news are telling people to stay inside and to potentially brace for tornadoes. Well, there goes one of my two shifts at work this week! Anyhoodle, we weathered the storm (heh heh heh can't help myself) and at about 2 pm we lost power. Woo. Despite that, we coped fairly well. Had a candlelit dinner and everything. It was relief to see that we got it back this morning though!

ANYWAYS: my sister and I started playing Monopoly when the power when out. Once the game was over (where I was triumphant - obviously) I needed to use up more of my time!

And knowing me, what  better way to spend my time then paint my nails?! I present to you Monopoly nails  a pictorial representation of my afternoon in the "dark".

Just before I was getting ready to paint the Mylo Xyloto nails, I got a request to do an Overexposed (Maroon 5) themed set of nails. That is exactly what I did:

All of the images are tiny sections from the very colourful album artwork. But the thumb is Maroon 5's logo. I really like the zaniness and colour of this theme! Tis a shame that it will all disappear after work tonight... Sigh.

Nailo Xyloto

Last year I went to the Coldplay concert and it was totally amazing. As a memory of that night, I bought a Coldplay shirt (pshh of course) and on it were 14 simple symbols. Each symbol represented a song on the Mylo Xyloto album! Super cool right? But because I only have 10 nails to work with, I ended up with:

The background may or may not be the previously mentioned shirt... But this was so much fun to do! And I realised that the eye and the raindrop are the wrong way because I'm used to usualy painting to face towards me. But this time I decided to make the symbols face others, so they were upright when I curl my fingers over like in the picture. Needless to say, it messed with my brain a little. Oh wells!

web nails

I did these ages ago but I never posted them because I kept forgetting/I couldn't think of a witty title incorporating webs and nails... As you can see by the final title, I have announced defeat.

So yeah, web nails.

naildventure time: Beemo

Painting cartoons are much easier than painting real life th ings because there's more room for freedom. It'll still look correct even if you do it slightly different. I loved my Adventure Time nails and wanted to do more from the show. So I present, Beemo nails:

Winnail the Pooh

Today I had a few spare hours up my sleeve and some TV shows that I needed to watch so I really wanted to paint my nails. But not something average and regular... A theme. That requires detail and time (well, that depends on how talented you are am I riiiight?). I racked my brain and decided upon...

Winnie the Pooh nails! How you like me now!? It took overall.. probably 20 minutes but it looks like a lot of effort went into it. Which makes me honoured to sport these around town, getting showered in compliments (a typical ritual that my thousands and billions of fans do daily). I have something else planned for my right hand nails but you'll just have to wait and see in a couple of days ;) I'm getting ahead of myself, haven't even painted them yet! Let's hope it works out.

If not, I can always come back and edit this post. Pretend like nothing ever happened. Heh heh.

disnail's mickey mouse

My sister suggested I do Mickey Mouse nails of some sort. She provided the inspiration and I used all my creative forces to produce these bad boys:

I'm currently loving simplistic designs that let me show off the vast majority of pretty colours I own! All the nail colours get their time in the limelight.

naildy bugs

I remember a while back when I was overwhelming this blog with constant posts that I did a set that had an assortment of depictions - a mushroom, an eye, a tuxedo, a shoe and of course - a lady bug. The last one got me thinking on ways to expand it and how to renew it!

What better way then to rainbow-fy it! I really wanted to use a whole range of colours but I wanted to make it creative at the same time. The result combines my two desires perfectly.

PS. If you have any requests/ideas for themes or whatever to paint on my nails, please let me know!!

cow nails


I haven't posted in ages and I am deeply sorry. Here are some cow nails to ease the pain of my absence:
This was a request made sooo long ago and I apologise for taking so long to post it (you know who you are). Please forgive me!
