I've Gone Public.


Public restrooms, that is. I honestly have no idea what spurred the idea for this nail design. I was driving home from work one night thinking (it's my best thinking time), and it hit me. I thought it'd be a fun, EASY, quick nail design that would be easily recognizable. :-D The irony? I detest public restrooms, seriously, I'd rather hold it 'til my eyeballs are floating than use a public bathroom. I'm not sure whether it is the fact that someone might *gasp* hear me, or germs, or whatever. Might be a combination of all things, I just don't like them. *shudder* Anyway...after that TMI moment, here you are... my bathroom nails. (Don't worry, I washed my hands)


Sorry for the grotesque cuticle injury - been stuffing DVDs into cardboard envelopes for hours (800 DVDs so far).



I used ALDO Sea You in Ibiza as a base, with Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud for the white symbols. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat for shine.

  1. Kind of off-topic, but I want to share: I bought a unisex bathroom sign with the dude and the lady and put it on my bathroom door. Guests never ask where it is. :D

  11. This is off-topic to your post and I'm sure you've been asked this a zillion times, but how do you get the line of polish near your cuticles so neat and perfect? Brushes always leave mine looking a bit uneven, even when I'm super careful. : P

  15. Hello! It's happening a demonstration of cultural contest with nails art, and someone is using yours as a nail if it were theirs. They took the credit, are using it as if they had done.
