Getting Carried Away


I'll admit it...I'm a HUGE Sex and the City fan. Love every fashion-filled, cosmopolitan-sipping moment of it. (especially those moments that include Aidan, AKA John Corbett... *drool* <---been dreamy since Northern Exposure) I would kill for Carrie Bradshaw's wardrobe and shoe collection (mostly the shoe collection- I'm a big shoe collector in addition to my nail polish ;)) Anyway, my roommate and I, along with a few other girls, are going to see Sex and the City 2 tonight, I'm super excited!!! I'm curious to see what happens with the Aidan bump-into. (hell, I'd pay the $12 just to stare at him on screen for 2 hrs). The ring finger nail in today's design is way over the top (hence the 'Carried Away' tie-in in the title). Hope you like them! :) Sorry they're a tad shaky though, I was shaking so badly while I was doing them that it was impossible to draw straight lines!! Also, check The Daily Nail: REVIEWS later tonight for a review of the ULTA Glam Goth collection! :)



I used American Apparel Hassid as a base for the black nails, and Zoya Trixie for the jeweled nail. For the pink of the skyline, and logo, I used Massini Power Pack (an inexpensive brand that midwesterners can find at Meijer, but I'm not sure where else to purchase it), and the rhinestones were from Michaels Crafts. :) Topped it all off with some Seche Vite top coat, and away I go. :)

Who's your favorite SATC character- male or female?

Aidan....*sigh*

  1. Awesome!! I can't wait to see the movie either!

    Samantha is my favourite. Just because you never know what's next with her!

  3. After the 2nd movie, I have new found respect for Miranda. I think she was victim of bad-hair moments in the TV series, but her hair was fab in this movie. And I think she rocked the movie.

  4. So, do you watch United States of Tara? There's a lot of John Corbin around those parts, and I agree, he is damn sexy!

  5. John Corbett was born and raised about an hour from where I live! He's a WV boy which makes him the HAWTNESS (to me anyways)

    Loving all the diff designs you've done! Can't decide which is my fave, but this ones up there :)

  6. Well I would say my favourite character is the couple Samantha/Smith. She was way ahead of the "cougar" trend ;) And Smith gave her just the amount of softness she lacked.


    I love your pattern of today, even if it's a bit shaky ;)

  13. I don't know- it's like they are four different parts of a whole to me. If any one of them existed without any of the others it wouldn't be the same...like the different facets of a personality- too much or too little of one facet, and you're off. So I guess my favorite is all of them, combined...

  16. I'm interested to hear what you have to say about the movie... I went last night. I am a die-hard SatC lover, but thought the movie was a bit lacking. Mainly, they didn't have enough Harry!! He's my favorite SatC guy.

    As for the ladies though? I'm a Carrie ;)

  22. cute nails especially the bling nail! I loved the movie, but then I could watch them all just sit around drinking cosmos chatting for 2 hours.

  23. Girl: It has to be CARRIE! She is just fantastic. Guys: hmmmmmmm between Aiden and Smith Jerrod. Smith is so loving to Samantha, I mean, he did fly all the way back to tell her he loved her. But Aiden is a bit more rugged. Ahhhhhhh beautiful nails, especially the ring finger, she really is over-the-top at times!
