Peeping Toms


So this weekend was a weekend full of Yesterdog, Adult Grilled Cheese sandwiches from Marie Catrib's, eggrolls, a brilliant haircut, and lots of other miscellaneous awesomeness. (like seeing friends and family) I didn't actually go home because it was Easter, I went home because it was my good friend Adam's wedding! :) It was also a great opportunity for my man friend to (finally) meet my parents! (not to worry, he survived) Even though going home wasn't to celebrate Easter, I still decided to celebrate Easter on my fingernails, using the iconic yellow marshmallow treats we all manage to gag down during the Easter holidays... Peeps!

Fun game with Peeps that I learned this weekend- Peeps jousting- take 2 Peeps, stick a toothpick in the chest of each one, microwave them, and whoever gets poked first from expanding loses. lol

Anyway.



I used Orly Lemonade as a base, then mixed with CND Bicycle Yellow, and later AAmerican Apparel Raccoon to shade. American Apparel Raccoon was also used for the eyes, and Pure Ice French Kiss was used for the Peeps logo. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

  2. So cute! My fave way to eat Peeps is to roast them over a fire! They get all caramelized and delicious (and it distorts the shapes!)

  4. Peeps! We peep joust every year. Once we found the Target exclusive red peeps, which look super evil! Another time we used Will's Tea Tree Oil toothpicks. Don't ever use flavored toothpicks! It caused eye-watering fumes, running everyone out of the kitchen.

  9. Very cute! I love all of your work. I do have a nail question that I hope you can answer. My nails recently went nutz and are spiltting like crazy. What base coat would you reccommend I use to help with the splitting and weak nails? I've used Nail Magic in the past, but recently found out that it's not a safe polish to use. I would appreciate any help you can give me with this. Thank you sharing your work with us!

  22. Peeps! All of us research joust each and every year. Even as found the mark exceptional crimson peeps, which usually search excellent unpleasant! Yet another time most people applied Will's Tea leaf Shrub Gas toothpicks. Really don't ever use distinctive flavored toothpicks! Them brought about vision-watering gases, jogging everyone out of your your kitchen.
