I got my computer up and running again. Thank you Fanboy ♥! Anyway, I have a nail art post for you today. I joined the Twin Blog Post group on Facebook and this month I was paired up with Marijana from Nails From Fairytale and this month’s theme was animal print. We were given tropical fish, and chose to do a mandarin fish.

#hepicksmypolish Happy Birthday, Fanboy!

Standard

070613-2-01

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.

Neon and Gray, An Unlikely Combo

Standard

A new month, a new challenge theme at The Nail Challenge Collaborative. This month’s theme is neon, and I decided to start with a color combo I am seeing a lot lately: neon with gray. I’ve seen a lot of items come through my line at work and it inspired me: yellow and gray tank tops, gray running shoes with pink edging and laces, etc. So, I wanted to see how that combination translated to my nails.

MSMD Monday: Monochrome Mix ‘n’ Match

Standard

052013-01

Hey guys! I’m back for another MSMD Monday post, and this time I was inspired by two lovely ladies on YouTube! I first saw a variation of this look on cutepolish’s channel, and then I saw it on Dearnatural62’s channel.

While neither look is at all similar to mine, that’s the point. The point is to do each nail in your own personal style, but the connection is in the colors: Use only black and white. So, I did.
