Just Keep Swimming!
Tuesday, October 12, 2010
I have wanted to do this manicure for nearly the entire time I've been doing this blog, and since tomorrow is the last day of the 365-day project, I did it for TODAY's manicure! Finding Nemo is one of my favorite movies. It's hilarious, the art is incredible, and um, hellooooo, it has Ellen Degeneres, who is one of the funniest people alive! (She totally made the movie as 'Dory') I also LOVE the seagulls...MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! :-D Anyway, included in today's manicure, on the left hand, the 'Finding Nemo' logo on my thumb, Squirt on my index finger, Dory on my middle finger, Nemo on my ring finger, and one of the seagulls on my pinky. On the right hand there is Deb/Flo on my thumb, Pearl on my index finger, Bubbles (BUBBBBBLLLLLEEESS!!) on my middle finger, Gill on my ring finger, and a few of the 'jellies' on my pinky. :) I won't lie, this mani took forever, and I will not want to take it off tomorrow, but I will. :-D
