Between a Rockabilly and a Hard Place

Today was another totally awesome day!! It was the last exhausting day of CosmoProf, and I got to meet celebrity manicurist Elle, from Barielle, Hannah and the gang from Nails Magazine, and I got the chance to hang out and chat with Michelle of All Lacquered Up for most of the day, which ended in some super tasty In N Out and a mad dash to the airport so Michelle could get to her flight on time! :) All in all, a great day!

Today's nails remind me of 'Rockabilly' style, with the cheetah print and red combination. I think I've been listening to Imelda May too much lately. You should check her out, she's amazing, my favorite is 'Big Bag Handsome Man'. These are going to be hard to remove, I like them so much!! :)

I used American Apparel California Trooper as a base, with butterLONDON Crumpet for the 'blobs', outlined in MAC Showy, with Nubar Sexy Red for the moon. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

WOOT!! :)


  1. Love it! There needs to be a polish named "Between a Rockabilly and a Hard Place." :)

  2. WIN!!!! See you Thursday night, Indian nail polish is on it's way!

  3. this is HOT! LOVE it :)

  5. Hey, a fellow Imelda May fan! BBHM's one of my faves, too :-D And nice nails, btw!

  6. Cute design!



  7. WOW! This is so, so sweet. I like the overall warmth of the color palette as well. This is GREAT!

  8. I'm in love!!! I've asked for leopard nails 3 or 4 times but the girls never know what I mean (language barrier). I'm taking a pic of this with me this weekend, so I can finally get them!!

  9. this is so tacky that I just have to fall in love <3. ;-P

  10. gave a pic to my nail girls yesterday so they can practice this design for 2 weeks and be ready for my next appt! Just wish I had a pinup or rockabilly event to wear them to!!

  11. Do you know of a dupe for the Butter london crumpet shade? Tan is a hard color to find


Go on, comment... you know you want to. ;-P
