I've Got Chills, They're Multiplyin'

Ok, I don't have either. I have a sore throat, but that's neither here nor there. Tomorrow I set out for the airport at 4:30 am. That's right, A. M. Ugh. I'm flying to San Francisco for one of my close friend's wedding. I fly into San Francisco at 6:30 a.m., then arrive back in Las Vegas around midnight. I'm going to be deaddddd. ANYWAY. The wedding tomorrow is my friend Jordan's. He and I go way back to my days as a educational software designer...he was my programmer! :) During our time working together, we developed a friendship, and he is one of the awesomest, nicest, most generous, caring people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing, and I couldn't be happier for him. (his bride is a lucky gal!) One thing Jordan is not, however, is an awesome Dr. Mario player. (I corner the market on that) He and I have had battle upon battle, and I always win. (he blames it on the game and tells people that he beat me so badly I was in tears <----I let him have his lies out of pity) In honor of his wedding tomorrow (and since I won't be able to paint or post new nails tomorrow), I did Dr. Mario nails. On the thumb is Dr. Mario, on the index, middle, and ring fingers are the viruses and pills, and on the pinky is the purple and black checkerboard in the background, behind the bottle (? is it a pill bottle? a test tube?)

 I used American Apparel Hassid as a base, with American Apparel Manila for the yellow, Essie Foot Loose for the pink, Zoya Yummy for the blue, Barielle Grape Escape for the purple, Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud for the white, a mix of Barielle Choco Bar, American Apparel Cotton and Essie Vermillionaire for his hair, a mix of American Apparel Cotton and American Apparel Palm Springs for the skin tone. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.


  1. OMG I love Dr. Mario!!! This is such a creative mani! Love it! :D

  2. This tops your NES controller nails! I can sit and play Dr. Mario forever!

  3. So awesome!
    :) At least you're not taking the red eye!

  4. Love, love, love it! I have to show this to my mom. We were both obsessed with Dr. Mario when I was a kid!

  5. I saw your article in December's NAILS magazine. If you get a copy, you're on page 57.

  6. I just got my December NAILS magazine and it's super neat that you're featured in an article! Did you ever imagine starting this blog would bring such a following?? I think it's fantastic! Congrats!!

  7. Your title made me think of Grease!

  8. Olá, tudo bem? É incrível como sua imaginação e inspiração viaja.. Parabéns! :)
    Beijos :*
