Wood You?


First off, Happy Father's Day!! :) When I think of my dad, I think of the garage, and mainly woodworking. In fact, he taught me how to woodwork!! :) He is one of those people that can make anything and fix anything, I've given him a sketched out drawing more than once, and he has figured out how to create it, and he has fixed more things around the house (and my old cars) than I can count...he and my grandpa were very much the same in that respect, and although my grandpa has passed, today's nails are dedicated to both him as well as my dad. :)


I used MAC In the Buff as a base, with Zoya Dea applied with Bundle Monster plate BM16. For the saw blades, I used China Glaze Millennium, mixed with American Apparel Hassid to shade, and American Apparel Cotton to highlight. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

  1. I love it! It reminds me of one of my Grandpa's who could take a piece of wood and create magic. He could build anything!

  7. What a cool take on a half moon mani! I agree with xtinaaj about zebra print as a wood design- ingenious!
    Your Father and Grandfather both sound like very cool guys- here's to them! Happy Father's Day, gentlemen! (where ever you may be!)

  12. I know this was posted almost a year ago (LOVE your work btw) but something just struck me. I was staring at the paneling in my office and thought, "Gee that can be created with just marbling different shades of brown" - I then had to see how you did your wood here. LOVE the way you did it. :)
    You rock.
