Animal Style


So today's nails are for the west-coasters, whom I hope will recognize them as the In-N-Out Burger cup design!! :) I LOVE In-N-Out, it is one of the places that keeps me here on the west coast! :-P I had it for dinner last night, and while I was eating, I looked at the cup and thought that the design would make for good nail art. Now, mind you, I've had In-N-Out of the idea list for some time now, but the original intent was to include it with a bevy of other fast food logos, but when this idea presented itself, I had no choice but to dedicate a day to it. :-D

The inspiration (I swear I heard angels singing, and possibly children's laughter):



The nails:



I used American Apparel Cotton as a base, with China Glaze Salsa for the palm trees, line, and squiggle line. Topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Hmmm, maybe Ill have it for lunch again today... Cheeseburger , no onion, fries lightly well, and a Dr. Pepper, please!!

On a suckier note, I get to have a root canal today, *cry* so I'm freaking out a bit.

Fortunately, GLEE is on tonight, so I have something to look forward to!!! YAY I'm so excited!

  6. Awesome. Had a root canal last September. If you dont have any pain right now then your rc shouldnt be that bad. I had to get 4 filings today and Im hating life but my teeth must be on point for my trip to Vegas in June.

  16. Great nails, so simple, yet perfect! They make me miss In-N-Out Burger and LA!
    Hope your root canal goes quickly and painlessly...


    I have tried to watch Glee, but my dog is absolutely terrified of the show- so unless I want to deal with 60 pounds of quivering, drooling, panting puppy, I have to pass it up. Go figure.

  17. I hope the root canal went well. I had one 2 years ago and while I was still drugged my husband took me to SmartPet and I ended up with 2 cats.

    Love the nails and love your blog. I've been following it for months now but this is my first time commenting. You're adorable and so creative! ;-)
