#hepicksmypolish Happy Birthday, Fanboy!



Today’s The Fanboy’s birthday! (Yay!) But he’s stuck at work. (Not yay.) So anyway, I figured as a little present to him, I’d relinquish control of my polish choices and let him pick the colors.

Well, okay, kind of.

I actually relinquished control of my polish choices to The Fanboy as part of a challenge. It started with one post, this one on The Sparkle Queen, and it kind of snowballed. It carried over to Disasterpiece Polish, and she rounded up a small bunch of us polish loving ladies and the men who love us to make it a group thing. (Though, me posting today was NOT a coincidence.)

So, okay, here’s how it works:

1. Join us on Facebook.
2. Get some guy in your life (it doesn’t have to be a significant other. It could be your son, your father, your brother, even a close friend. As long as it’s a guy, it’s all good!) to pick out 1-3 polishes from your stash.
3. No matter what he picks, no matter how much the colors clash or look guady or just don’t flow, you must do a manicure using those colors.
4. (Optional) Post pictures on Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr/wherever and add your blog posts (make sure to use #hepicksmypolish somewhere in the post title so we can keep them all together on Twitter) to our InLinkz collection (which will be linked at the end).

Now, without further adieu, I give you what I had been dealt.

Black & White Challenge Day 5: Color With Black



Ugh, phone why are you now taking blurry pictures? (My phone’s flash >> my camera’s flash so I use it.)

Anyway, today was color with some black. I originally based this design off of a jet ski in a game my boyfriend has on his phone. I started with two coats of NOPI One Time Lime, then did the stripes with Milani Black Canvas. Topped with NYC Extra Shiny Top Coat.

Like I had said, this mani was originally modeled after a jet ski in this racing game my boyfriend has. Though, after staring at it for most of the day, I realized that this also looks like something else:


It looks just like Kevin’s car from the Ben 10 series (don’t judge me, lol). And that, my readers, makes this mani even more awesome than it was before.

The only sad thing was that I suffered a break on my right index finger while wearing this today, but eh, what can you do?

Tomorrow is dotted nails from the abstract challenge, and Wednesday is color with white nails. Also coming is today’s Makeup Monday post.
