What Are You HUP...TO...3...4?


Day 104

Happy Monday, everyone!!! Today's nails were a request a while back from reader Melissa T-S. She told me that her 25 year old son is 5th generation army, and she would LOVE to see camouflage nails... so, Melissa... and your son, I hope you see these!! :) (and like them!! :-P)



I used Sally Hansen Trendy Creme as a base. (this color is amazing- the most perfect avocado color- best of all- I got it at the Dollar Tree! :-P) For the rest of the camo colors, I mixed Zoya Envy with Sally Hansen Trendy Creme for the olive color, since Envy was too dark, used Nubar Milk Chocolate Creme for the brown, and China Glaze Liquid Leather for the black. I topped it all off with two coats of Essie Matte About You to make it matte and awesome. :-P

I really love these nails... and they're totally my dedication to all the troops working their asses off everywhere to make our world, our country, and our people safe. (and for their predecessors, who made it possible to live in a country where one can do something as frivolous as painting her nails every day and blogging about it)...

THANK YOU!!!

  2. Hello, I've just discovered your blog, and a totally enjoying it. I am a 50+ year old woman who has just embarked on a self improvement quest, and your nail blog has inspired me to pay more attention to my nails. . I'm going to go back thru your archives. So much fun!

  3. I LOVE you. I'm from Las Vegas too(I even think my great-aunt might work for the same company as you, or that she used to anyway), and I feel like people here never do ANYTHING. There's no sense of community or creativity like I feel you find in other large cities. You're not out saving the world or anything (or maybe you are), but you're doing SOMETHING fun and whimsical and just because which I think is wonderful. I want to copy every single design you do, but I bite the hell out of my nails and even gnaw on fake ones, so I can't. I love your baked goods as well. I'm a Culinary Arts Management major at UNLV, and I have 2 required baking classes, but I can't wait to graduate so that I can take some fun cake decorating/sugar art classes for fun. Longgg comment, but...keep doing what you do. Forserious.

  16. Kelly, and mostly all of the other commenters seriously need to get lives. You guys are super dumb. This women isn't God, okay? Get some lives. And make wise choices. The world is going to end someday. BE PREPARED FOR THE END OF THE WORLD, bitches.

  17. Wow anonymous you certainly have an attitude problem! I happen to know that she works full time, goes to college part time and is known for making home made goodies for friends and family. She is having fun with this and is generous enough to let us go along for the ride. I think sharing happiness is a better preparation for the "end of the world" than your negative nastiness!! Nuff said.

  21. Wow. I guess now you KNOW that you're a hit, because you have your own vile troll. It's a shame that that sort of thing seems to come with success.
    Maybe if we all completely ignore it, it will go on it's nasty way, back to it's nest in a box of rotten lima beans and dirty gym socks, far away from us...
