Happy monday!!! It's *bleepin* hot here today in sunny Las Vegas, and definitely doesn't feel like April should. :-D Today's design is simple again, I got home late after the show last night, and was too tired to do anything intricate, but I still dig the color combo- Flip Flop Fantasy is positively retina-searing, the picture doesn't do it justice! :) I'm sitting at my desk right now having a 'Flip Flop Fantasy'... wishing I was at home sitting in the shade wearing flip flops, my comfy jeans, and a t-shirt!! No such luck, it's a work day! The play last night was fantastic, and if any of you should get the chance to see 'Confessions of a Mormon Boy', I'd highly recommend it. It's hilarious, entertaining, charming, and heart-wrenching all wrapped into one story.

I used China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy as a base, with MAC Showy applied by dipping the end of a straw in the bottle of polish, then aiming it at the nail, and forcefully blowing air through the straw to splatter it. I topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Flippety flop! (I think it's about nap time for this redhead- why can't we have siestas here in the US?)

  2. WOW !! That looks so cool. And in a odd way like blood splatters (it may just be all the horror film coursework ive been doing lol)

  3. I was going to suggest you did a Jackson Pollock on your nails!! Was he your inspiration? And yeah, living in Spain is great, when the going gets tough I just take a siesta :)

  25. Hi, I read about you in a brazilian website.
    Make an inspiration in Brazil, please!


  26. Wow! That's a great idea, I've got to try the straw blowing. Anyway, I find it comical with the time difference. You said it was time to get some sleep and my computer said posted at 1:53 PM. Vegas and NYC have different time zones, that's for sure.

  27. Also, I'm the same person from right before and the time zones. Wow to the people from Brazil. That's some heavy duty devotion. You guys are great and inspire me to think that I'm part of something sort have worldwide

  28. Hi, I'm from Brazil too . U r a huge success in here !!! I'd like to give u a sugestion of themes for your nails: horses; ipod's; video games; havainas (those brazilians slippers ...); kitchen stuff (like spoon, knife, bowls, forks ....).
    uhmmm, I think that's it . I really looooved your blog!
    congratulations for it !!!!!!

  29. Greetings!
    My name is Daniele, and I loved the nails!
    Well, my nails are short, because I "eat" them, I don't know how to say it in english, but anyway...

    Some days ago, I tryed fake nails, and decided to paint them for the release of Alice in Wonderland, here in Brazil. /Yeah, you are rocking around here!

    Well, I drawed some cards, I would like to show you, if you don't mind seeing it... (And if you have the time enought)
    And also, I would like to see your version for "Alice in Wonderland" inspired nails.. Haha

    Of course people are giving you many great ideas, and I don't even know if you like Alice, but... yeah, hope you like the ideia.

    I believe you are going to overpass 365 nails *-*

    Here is the link to mine. Of course I can't compare my (terrible) nails with your perfects, but, let's share! Haha


    Thank you!
    Good work! You're an artist, definitely!
    Luck with the nails!
