The Heat is On


Ok, so the title has nothing to do with the nail art today, which is unusual, but I was at a loss as to what to call this one. However, I DO know that it is hotter than Satan's scrotum here in Vegas today, it's like Lucifer himself has rested his balls on the chin of Las Vegas. Last week it was in the 60s-70s-80s or so.... then it jumped to the hundreds in the last 2 days. WHY, GOD!?! :-P I swear when I go out in the sun I can actually smell my skin sizzling. Sexy, eh? It's so hot my eyelids are sweating, I wasn't built for this crap. :-P

Anyway.

I finally got around to using my butterLONDON Artful Dodger, I've had it for months!



I used butterLONDON Artful Dodger as a base color for all nails but the ring finger, which I used L.A. Girl Army Green. For the large dot, I used American Apparel California Trooper, and for the brown lines, I used MAC Showy. Topped everything off with two coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Don't forget to check The Daily Nail: REVIEWS later tomorrow, there will be some new reviews & swatches!!

Also, I will have the answers to the questions asked on the 'Thank You For Being a Friend' post. I typed them all up, but got an error when I published my comment, so I lost all I typed (this time I'll be smart enough to type it in another program and cut & paste. :-P)

  1. Hot as Hades, eh? That's why they keep those casinos nice and cool; it keeps the tourists corralled.

    The nail art looks vintage...I can't quite come up with the style. But it would look nice while holding a cool martini. ;)

  3. I'm feeling "mod" and "sixties." Nothing clever from me, though.

  7. I love this. Keep trying to make a piece of representative art out of it in my head but it's purely abstract, right?

  8. Nice mani. :) I've heard others say they use two coats of Seche Vite. What does that do for the mani? Just wondering.

  13. Do you take request? If so, could you do a Barbie inspired nail design with the logo and silhouette maybe? Preferably before the 16th, my daughter wants to get her nails done like that for her prom. Thanks! By the way, you are AWESOME!!!

  15. I know what you mean about the heat! Last week we were planning a garage sale because the weather was so awesome but had to cancel because it became an oven (like literally. You know when you open the oven door and that heat hits your face? Yeah, this is oven heat in Vegas).

    These nails are great. I really like the color combo. What about Yo Gabba Gabba nails? Don't know why, but I bet those faces would be really cute on nails.

  16. people weren't meant to live in places like vegas! that is why water distribution is often such a problem in deserts and why in the middle east, water is more expensive than gas; we shouldn't be there in the first place!
