Stuck on Me


Did you know that Barry Manilow wrote the Band-Aid jungle? Today's nails were the product of a suggestion by one of my coworkers, Erik, who noticed that I had a bandaid on one of my nails (it's my quick broken nail temporary fix until I can fix it for real), and thought it'd be a fun nail idea. So, today's nails are my interpretation of the strip of fabric with a beloved jingle, Band-Aids!!


I used Zoya Helen as a base, with Urban Outfitters Nude 3 to highlight, and Zoya Helen and Zoya Dea to shade and for the dots. (as the perforated holes in the plastic type of bandages) Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche vite top coat.

Are you stuck on band-aids?

  5. Okay, what kind of voodoo do you have goin' here?
    I have now seen no fewer than 30 "Band-Aid" commercials since I read this post. Spring must be skinned knee season- makes sense, I guess...
