Makin' a Run For the Border


Quarter Meal, $2 menu, Gorditas, Chalupas, Quesadillas, you name it, I'm in. (unless it's a bean burrito- HORK!) Taco Bell has been a food group, for lack of a better term, to me for more years than I care to admit. I remember the days when I was 19, sleeping on my sister's couch for the summer before my junior year of college, when I was 19 and working 2 jobs. Those also happened to be the days where I ate Taco Bell twice a day, nearly every day. 3 soft taco supremes, no tomato, with a Mt. Dew. Same order, every time. (I still order that nearly every time) I often attribute my iron stomach to my younger days of building up my tolerance for fast food. Honestly, it's nothing short of a miracle that I can still fit indoors. My mother is going to KILL me when she reads this post, luckily, I'm 2,000 miles away, and yes, Mom, of course I'm eating healthy! (Yes, I eat square meals - Wendy's burgers happen to be squares, right?!)

Today's nails are dedicated to the 'Bell', I've run for your borders more times than I can count, and your Chicken Baja Gorditas will always hold a special place in my heart. (probably somewhere along the wall of the Aorta) Also- if anyone from the Taco Bell corporation happens to read this- PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the Chicken Enchilada Grilled 'Stuft' Burrito. I lived on those bad boys for like 2 straight weeks in my mid-20s, and miss them. *drool*


I used ALDO Got Grapes? as a base, with China Glaze Grape Pop for the designs from the Taco Bell cup, then I used Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud as a base for the Taco Bell 'bell', with Sally Hansen Vavoom Violet over it for the hot pink. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Crunchwrap anyone?

Also- today's eyeballs. I used (all MAC) Mutiny pigment with Violet pigment in the crease, Rich Purple in the outer corner, and Electric coral on the lower lashline and inner corner/crease. Blue Peep on the waterline, and Blacktrack to line.

  6. I flatter myself, but did my comment yesterday inspire your Taco Bell nails by any chance???? : ) Have you tried their new "diet" menu? It doesn't have the cheese, but how is that different from the regular tacos with the single digit cheese shred count, really? Yo quiero queso!

    Hey, have you ever done chihuahua nails? Like each finger a paw and the thumb is the head? My dog is requesting that!


    Your fan in Huntsville.

  7. I miss way back in mid to late 90s? when they did the whole "meat taste thing" and changed up the spice recipe for the ground beef.

    Changed things FOREVER... hated it since (though I will still eat there from time to time...).

  16. Okay, so the nail club at Narbonne High school sent you an email with that nail. I was hoping you would have given them a shot out with the nail. A little disappointed since you were their nail idol.

  17. Hey did you get my e mail of my taco bell nails? I sent you an e mail regarding my nail club asking for a shout out. I even sent some pictures of my taco bell nails. This shows how you don't respond to e mails. Very dissapointing " "inspiration". By the way, my bells came out better :)

  18. You know I love it when your nails are short.

    I go by the Bell almost every day during my lunch break, it's such a guilty pleasure. Very cute nails!

    I'm also loving that you're posting your eye makeup now, very good stuff.

  19. Thank you everyone!

    As for Andrea Camarena & Anonymous- I didn't get the email that you are talking about, and if I had, I'd have given a 'shout out' as you have seen me do on every other nail design requested/inspired by someone besides myself. Before you are so quick to accuse, make sure that I've gotten the email first. I went back through my emails (including Spam) and didn't receive any emails about Taco Bell nails or with any pictures of them. Send me them, I'd love to see the pictures! I'll even add them on the end of this post if you send them.

    As for my inspiration on the Taco Bell nails, I have a Taco Bell cup on my nail desk that gave me the idea. I eat Taco Bell about 3 times a week at least, too.
