Tip the Scales

Today when I sat down to do my nails, I had NO idea what I was going to do. (like most days) This is what happened, I think it kind of looks like very graphic fish scales. :-D

I used Essie Sag Harbor as a base, with NOX Twilight Talon for the 'scales'. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Tonight was AWESOMEEEEEEEEEE. I was lucky enough to get tickets to 2 concerts. Not one, TWO! :-P (FREE) I got to go to Cyndi Lauper at the House of Blues, and Michael Franti and Spearhead at Mandalay Bay Beach. Cyndi Lauper was INCREDIBLE. She sang a ton of blues songs, and then sang her well-known hits. (and you bet your ass I wore my MAC Viva Glam Cyndi. :-D) Michael Franti was also really amazing, I love how his music is so happy and uplifting, he's definitely a gifted artist! :-D

This is me after tonight (no, not red, smeary, and round-faced...HAPPY! Don't mind the zillions of freckles...I'm cursed)


  1. Really pretty! Reminds me of the children's book "The Rainbow Fish" by Marcus Pfister, that has the colorful, shiny scales on the cover! :)


  2. That looks so good! I think I might try this out!

  3. That's really cute! It reminds me of a pottery design, I'd pull up a link if I could remember more about it. I like it a lot, though. :D

  4. I know what Laynie means about pottery designs. I like this a lot.

  5. These are great! Can I ask you a question? What brush are you using to paint on the fish scale lines? Will it ruin the brushes to keep dipping them in acetone to clean them?
    i Love NOX polish !

  6. I love these. The colours are soooooo sweet!

  7. I really like all of the abstract designs you do, such skill!
    Love Sanchia xxx

  8. This feels really asian, like chinese pottery. Gorgeous! And isn't Michael Franti the BEST? He's so inspirational.

    this actually reminds me of dragon scales from that movie "How to train your dragon"
