You Really Turn Me On


Today's manicure is another nerdy manicure. :-P They were inspired by the power button on your computer, monitor, XBOX, TV, etc. Silly, I know, but I like doing nerdy designs. Plus, I have been on the XBOX waaaaay too much lately. I watched the entire five seasons of Weeds on streaming Netflix in a matter of days. Yeah, I don't half-ass stuff, I go ALL out. :-D I call it dedication, others call it sad. :)



I used China Glaze Millennium as a base, and I have to say, as much as I love and rave about this color for nail art and Konading, I do NOT like it as an all-over color on me. For the On symbols, I used China Glaze Millennium mixed with American Apparel Hassid. Topped it off with Seche Vite top coat.

What a turn-on.

  2. I was just thinking a tiny white drop shadow on one side would make the debossed effect that Apple uses…too geeky?

  6. So funny!!! Have you done a camo one yet. I was thinking camo with hearts (greens and pink together would be AMAZING) and call it "Love is a Battlefield". :)

  8. I am about to start streaming both Mad Men and Weeds from Netflix... can't decide which to do first. Maybe this post swayed me- can't wait.
    Hey, isn't Jeffrey Dean Morgan the dead hubby on Weeds?
    That man is QUITE the fetching devil... I could watch him read the phonebook; so a well written, well cast, well acted dramedy is icing on that (beef) cake!
    Oh, and VERY CUTE NAILS! And kudos to Ben J Hamilton for a cool (at least I think, being a recent Apple convert) suggestion!

  9. AWE!!! Why am I not surprised? You're so on it! That was great! I love the matte topcoat! That whole "love is a battlefield" was a GREAT play on words though... DANG IT!!! HAHAHAHAHA!

  11. I think you should do a clock themed manicure. Because-I don't know if the case is the same for you- when I have more intricate manicures, people tell me I have "too much time on my hands". So I'm thinking little clocks, with 13 numbers rather than 12 aka too much time. Weak pun, I know.

  12. Awesome idea...but if you want it to look more like an Xbox...you could do the same mani with some red rings around it. *snicker*

  13. That's so cool! And it's making me think of The Simpsons when Smithers programmed his computer to tell him "You really turn me on" at start up XD

  14. Hi, your nail designs are awesome. :D For this design, maybe if you did a black background with a silver power button print it'd turn out a bit better? Chrome silver is not a good look on me either (ghostly effect :s), so totally get that~can't wait to see what else you come up with!
