Not So Double Stuffed


Dunno, I've never liked Double Stuf Oreos. I could never get behind the ratio of sugary filling to chocolate cookie. It's an unbalanced scale, and will never win a place in my heart. I know, I'm probably one of the few that hates them, but what's new, I'm the odd one in the group...nothing wrong with that! :-D However, I DO love regular OREOs. Seriously, I swear they're the cure for insomnia, for hunger, for a sweet tooth, for everything. The bad thing is, once I start eating OREOs, I find it hard to stop, and before I know it, 1/3 of the package is gone. :) Oops. (They're SO GOOD) Today's manicure idea was a suggestion of Chris'. (apparently the OREO commercial was on at his house when I texted, contemplating what to do for today's nails) I did the OREO logo on my thumb, and close-ups of the printed side of the cookie on the index, middle, and pinky, with a stack of OREOs on the ring finger. Nom Nom Nom. (you know I did 'research' for this manicure)


I used MAC Rich, Dark, Delicious as a base for the cookie nails, mixed with American Apparel California Trooper to make the design/highlight, and mixed MAC Rich, Dark, Delicious with American Apparel Hassid to shade. On the ring finger, I used Essie Bone Chilling White as a base, with the same colors as above for the cookie parts. For the logo nail, I used ALDO Sea You in Ibiza as a base, with Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud for the logo, and China Glaze Flyin' High for the teal outline. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

I think I'm going to go bite my nails. :-9

  2. Yummy! I love the cookie part of the OREO. Could do without the cream, but it's all delicious =]

  3. I've been following your blog for a while now and I am always excited to see your new design for the day. I just wanted to take the time to say that I LOVE this design very much. I am also an Oreo lover (the regular kind, of course! none of this double stuff nonsense). And now you've made me crave them! Which I don't mind, no, not at all.

  4. Oreo's are ok (I feel ya on the double stuffs) but always liked Hydrox cookies better. I don't think they make them anymore. Joe joe's are my new fav!

    This mani is adorable!

  5. I'm not an avid fan of the double stuffed OREOs either. Too much cream filling thingy. Regular OREOs, on the other hand, are a-okay in my book! Nice manicure! I'm always amazed by your attention to details.

  6. Your nail designs continue to amaze me! Even if I disagree w/ your thoughts regarding double stuf oreos :) The new cakesters are the best, though.

  7. I don't like oreos at all, I can't stand the black cookie crumbs that remain all over my teeth, but I'm tempted to change all that- your nails are absolutely gorgeous!!!!!!!

  10. I love Oreos, although I read somewhere that eating 1 oreo has the equal amount of fat as 6 peices of bacons.... weird.... So ya, I only eat them once in a while... usually when I am on vacation lol

    Your design is AMAZING!! It literally blows my mind how good you can draw on your nails and stuff. Only think I can do is Konad, my free hand art... is very limited.. meaning I can only do stripes :P lol
    LOVE YOUR BLOGGGGGG <3

  11. OMG, Oreos are one of my weaknesses. Seriously, once I start, I just can't seem to stop. It's gotten to the point that I don't even bring them into the house anymore! Now I wanna nomnomnom on your nails!

    Also, since you've brought me so much sunshine, I wanted to pass a little bit back to you. So, I've given you a sunshine award! (It's in my latest post, titled Yay, I got a Sunshine Award!) I hope it brings you a bit of joy... it's only fair, since you've brightened so many of my days!

  13. Crazy good detail! And I think it's some kind of Twilight Zone phenomena regarding the Oreo bag that always ends up 1/3 empty right after you open it. The same thing happens to me. So WEIRD!

  20. This and the Sock Monkey nails are my favorite by far!

  21. I love your site!! :-D
    My question is: How do you keep the paint from getting lumpy on the nail? When I do designs it's like 3-D, or a topographic map! Is it the polish, the brush, the technique? Any suggestions?
    Thanks! Vicki

  22. GREAT. THANKS A LOT. I just ruined my diet cause i went to the grocery store and I had Oreos on my mind from this post.
    I'll forgive you because they are tasty and because your designs are so awesome :) hehehe

  23. I heartily agree with you about the double stuffed Oreos. I feel the same about them changing the ration on Reese's Peanut butter cups. Don't mess with the ratio!!!!
    Awesome nails, of course!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I meant changing the ratio, not ration- D'oh!

  27. I would love to be out and about and find someone with Oreos on their nails. Haha, you're probably like the only one that does this though.
