Et tu, Brute?

Today's nails are simple, and remind me of toga embellishments, or borders in roman art/architecture. Today has been a super long day, got a new project at work that I'm excited about- wish I could say more, but confidentiality agreements put the kibosh on that. :-P Went to the dentist today for a routine cleaning, and #1 found out that Sonicare toothbrushes are the shiz, and really DO work, and #2, I need a root canal. *cry* Luckily, I'm assured that it won't hurt, as the tooth is not inflamed, just an old sports injury (one where I caught a softball with my face) is coming back to haunt me. *sigh* Ah well, at least NCIS is on tonight. ;)

I used American Apparel Cotton as a base, with China Glaze 2030 from Khrome Collection for the pattern. Topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Man, this makes me want some salad... Caesar, anyone?


  1. Love it, and so does the Ancient History student in me (I definitely need to do a meander at some point, too). But you missed the Ides of March by eight days. ;-)

  2. thanks. :) Seriously can't believe I didn't even THINK about it relating the Ides of March. Just goes to show how long my day has been. :-D

  3. Hi sweetie!

    My name is May, I'm from Brazil and I'm totally in love about your work and your blog! I readed all your files, in which:, I would like to know exactly how you do your nails! I was very curious ... why your fingers are also painted? is a kind of machine you use?

    thank you!
    and congratulations for the blog!


  4. I'm an aspiring Archaeologist/Anthropologist. I love these nails! How did you do it? I really want to recreate them for a project I'm doing in school :)
    P.S. HUGE fan of this site! You are so creative!

  5. This is cutee :) And OHMYGOSHH. I went to the endodonticts today so they could take the x-ray for my root canal at the next appointmentt! Dats funnyyy. Hehe.

  6. I was just at a book club meeting of Inherit the Wind where they discussed the symbolism of where Cates says Et tu, Brute. I know, all bookwormy, but it's ironic!

  7. Sonicare IS the shiz! I no longer dread having my teeth cleaned (used to prefer a root canal).

    I'm enjoying watching your followers meter climb as I catch up (although I wanted to be 1500 but it took a 30 count jump while I slept). Go you! I'll be very sad when the year is up.

  8. Very cute! The symbol is called a "Greek key" and was borrowed from the Greeks by the Romans. Cheers! :)


Go on, comment... you know you want to. ;-P
