May I Have This Dance?


Day 103

So I went to American Apparel today, hoping to nab Hassim, one of the few of their polishes that I haven't bought yet, only to find that they've been sent back to the company!! Rumor has is that they're revising certain aspects of the polish/packaging. I was surprised to hear this, because honestly, I love the polishes- most of them are nearly opaque in one coat, making them divine for Konading, and for freehand nail art as well! Anyway, while I was there, I chatted with the sales associates that were working, a lovely young lady, and a nice guy whose names I didn't ask for because I'm sometimes socially inept, and don't think about that sort of thing. Anyway, they know who they are- yay Miracle Mile American Apparel store! :) Anyway, that story was told to set me up for the explanation of the inspiration for my nails today, the guy suggested that I do dance-themed nails, since he was a dancer. I'm not sure this is what he was thinking of, since he mentioned ballet shoes, etc, but this is what immediately popped into my head for some reason... I was inspired!! :-) So, dear American Apparel lad, these are for you, I even used AA polish! :-P



I used American Apparel Cotton as a base, with China Glaze Liquid Leather for the dance steps and directions. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

  1. That's sssssooooo cute. When I read your story and the word "dancer" from that guy I immediately thought that you were going to do the whole nail as a some type of shoes style like ballenta,tap or blue swede shoes(thank you, thank you very much. :-$) it's not too late maybe you can do something like that later this week? take care and keep warm from your Oregon viewer. :-)

  11. Please read this: http://jezebel.com/5457127/does-american-apparels-new-nail-polish-contain-hazardous-material

    If they really are considered hazardous materials, you should stop using them for your own safety.

  13. Hey! So I've been following your blog for a couple months now and was going back through looking at your different designs tonight because I'm trying to get some inspiration. I have no ideas tonight but I really want to do something besides one color. Anyways, this reminded me of the Marauders Map in Harry Potter.

    :D
