Jerry Garcia in a Pouch, Man!


...and it won't even cost $400!!

Today's nails were inspired by the Grateful Dead bears! :) Gotta love them in their colorful goodness, so I thought they'd make fun nail art!!

Tonight I had dinner with an old friend from Michigan who was in town, it was good to see someone familiar, and to catch up on the last 2 years! :) Plus we ate at le Burger Brasserie, where the burgers are killer (le paris for me- caramelized onion bun, caramelized onions, melted brie, and smoked bacon, all atop a half lb. burger. *drool*

Anyway, to the nails.


I used Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud as a base, with Pure Ice French Kiss mixed with Orly Gumdrop for the blue bear, and highlighted with Orly Gumdrop as well. For the neck, I used For the green bear I used L.A. Girl Army Green, highlighted with CND Bicycle Yellow, and a mixture of China Glaze Salsa and American Apparel Manila for the neck. For the yellow bear, I used American Apparel Manila, highlighted with American Apparel Cotton, and Pure Ice French Kiss for the neck. For the red bear, I used China Glaze Salsa, highlighted with CND Bicycle Yellow, and L.A. Girl Army Green for the neck. For the purple bear, I used a mixture of China Glaze Salsa, Pure Ice French Kiss, and Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud for the body, highlighted with Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud, and Orly Gumdrop for the neck. Everything was outlined in American Apparel Hassid. Topped everything off with two coats of Seche Vite top coat.
