Look! It's a GINGER! (bread man)


Day 63

Ok, so I'm a redhead (obviously), and one of my most LOATHED terms for redheads is 'Ginger'. Maybe I'm crazy and alone in this, but I despise it. ARGH. The only time Ginger is acceptable is in baking/cooking/eating, and in reference to GINGERBREAD MEN!! (and women). So for the second day of Christmas nails, I present to you... the GIngers. :-P I didn't draw a full man or woman on any of my nails, rather parts, like the head and shoulders, or body, or cropped it somehow. I even drew a gingerbread woman on my pinky! :)



I used China Glaze Emerald Sparkle as a base (gorgeeeoussss!), with OPI Ginger Bells for the ginger bread men, and Migi Nail Art Pens for the white. :) Of course, topped off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat too!

10 More Days Until Christmas!! :)

  2. Hi, I just wanted to ask what kind of tool or brush you use to paint on the gingerbread man's body? The egdes are really smooth and it doesnt look elevated or bumpy, so I figured you didn't use the brush that came with the Ginger Bells polish.

    Thanks!

  4. Thanks, ladies! :)

    Mary- for the ginger color I used a fine-tipped nail art brush that I got from Sally Beauty for $3.49. (with Sally Card, $4.99 without)

  5. I'm not a natural redhead, but I do have dyed red hair and a redhead's complexion. I also hate the term Ginger. It's just... bleh.

    Your nails are SO adorable. My little 3 year old nephew calls Gingerbread Men "Gingermans Cookies". He'd love your nails.

  7. Love!!! I call a little girl at my daughter's school Ginger, she's a redhead. I didn't know her real name! So now I feel bad, and I'll ask her what her real name is so I can call her by it!

  9. I was born with red hair, and spend an exorbitant amount of cash trying to get back to it! (#@*%! mother nature for turning it brown!) I don't mind the term "Ginger" that much, and have even convinced myself that it's exotic! But if it's prefaced with the words "Yo" or "Hey", then we got problems. (Same with "Red".)
    LOVE the Gingerpeople nails, though! Super cute!

  10. Rita- ha ha! Red doesn't bother men, oddly enough- Maybe it's because it mostly comes from old guys that would be my grandpa's age.

    I was born with red hair, and still have it, I was a hair dye virgin until I was a hair model years back, probably around 22-23? They couldnt believe that the red was my natural color, since apparently red has a tendency to either fade or turn to brown after a certain age. Guess I'm one of the lucky ones, who knew? I always hated my hair when I was younger, even asked my mom once if I could dye it black when I was like 5, because I thought it would make my freckles go away. (the other bane of my existence ;))

  11. Oh, no! Embrace the freckles! I envy the freckles! I always wanted them! I have a few, but not many- and as a teenager, I used to sit out in the sun- not to tan, but hoping I'd get freckles! (all I did was burn...) And as for my hair, it went platinum blonde (as a tot) first, and then it went to mousey brown (teen). In the ensuing years, with the glorious assistance of chemistry, it has officially been every color of the rainbow at least once, most two or three times. Red has been my most popular color though, as I'm always trying to get back that original color. Now it's usually several colors at once. Right this minute, it is black, blonde, burgundy, purple and lavender. I know that sounds like an unsightly mess, but it's actually quite pretty. As if I were a "nature girl" except from Jupiter instead of Earth.
