Wax On, Wax Off


I'm going to start off by saying that Karate Kid is one of the awesomest movies....EVER. How can you not love Ralph Macchio?! And Mr. Miyagi? He cracks me up. SO funny. Paint the fence! Such a great movie, and today's nails were inspired by the handkerchief sewn on the back of Daniel's karate uniform, with the sun and Bonsai tree silhouette.


I used Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud as a base, with American Apparel Manila to make the sun, then darkened it with Zoya Jancyn, then the top part of the gradient is Zoya Jancyn mixed with Nubar Sexy Red. For the Bonsai tree, I used American Apparel Hassid. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

BANZAI!!!

    I used to love the karate kid back in the day...it's one of very few movies where I enjoyed the sequels.

  13. Wow! That's gorgeous! It's also close to the Malibu Run logo - you'd just have to replace the bonsai tree with palm trees.

  16. Love, Love, Love, LOve it And the movie. Huge crush on Ralph. I'm not a nail person but I would like to try. But most of your design are too much details however with this one I would try. It seems simple enough. Thank you from Oregon viewer. :-)
