Just Push Play


So, since I've been feeling pretty under the weather for the last few days, I've become very acquainted with the TV remote. I seem to have caught some sort of bug. *bleck* Anyway. There are a few things I make myself get out of bed/get off the couch for- and this is one!! :) (Groceries is another) Anyway, today's nails were inspired by my buddy, the remote, the clicker, the changer, your children, whatever you call the little thing that allows you to channel surf. :-P


I used American Apparel Factory Grey as a base with American Apparel Cotton for the symbols. For the red of the record 'button', I used Nubar Sexy Red. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Did you know the Travel Channel has wicked awesome shows? I'm totally addicted. between that, Discovery, History, and ID, I'm totally hypnotized. In addition, can I say I am loving Anthony Bourdain?

  2. Oh my goodness, this is too adorable! I swear, I didn't even have to question what it was!

    I'm sitting down in about 10 minutes (after blog rounds, of course) to start sketching on my first big conceptual set of nails. They have a theme, and multiple images I have to figure out how to simplify enough to get them onto a nail without losing enough of what they are to make them... you know, THEM.

    It's scary. It's exciting. I'm having a ball!! But I have NO idea if this is going to work or not. But hey, what have I got to lose, right?

  3. Bourdain is pretty cool. but it turns out, in a bar fight, stay near Emeril. bourdian was there with emeril down south in a bar and a fight broke out. turnsout emeril broke the thing up and beat the shit out of the guys to make em stop. bourdain thought it was the coolest thing ever. and i DEFINITELY agree.

    and the nails are beautious as usual!

  13. The Clicker is rare in my home. We keep losing it! It now has a permanent home on top of our entertainment center. lol we have to burn a couple of calories in order to find something to watch.

    Have you thought about putting your images on tumblr as well? I know it would hit off.

  14. I am usually a lurker but had to break my silence to say I thought I was the only girl in love with Anthony Bourdain! Everyone thinks I am crazy but he is amazing! If he wasn't married and I actually knew him...oh man..

  15. Hiya! I just want to say I think you're amazing and super talented and I wanted to ask if you have ever done a themepark design on your nails. I'm going to Six Flags this weekend and I thought it would be a neat idea to maybe do like a roller coaster design or something.
    I don't know...just brainstorming but you know...
    Keep up the good work :D
