Where in the World?

So yeah,  I've been MIA for a while. I'll get to that in my next post.

Just checking in to let you lovely people know I'm still alive.

Next post will be from American soil!


Moonicure Monday - GObama!

As I'm sure most of you know (if you're from the the US or not), tomorrow is Election Day! Of course I had to do presidential nails for the occasion! I know that the topic of politics is a hot button issue these days, and this post is my nail art in support of President Barack Obama! Living outside the US this past year, I have gotten a better hold on what others think of the US, its people, and our president, and it's pretty clear to me who they want.

Side note, my nails are more nubbiny now, I broke my thumbnail after accidentally 'scoring' it with a paring knife while cooking. Ironic that it happened the same day Katherine of Manicure Addict commented that my nails were getting really long! lol

Dia de los Homer

November is upon us again, and with it comes Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead. Sugar skull imagery has popped up everywhere in recent years, tattoos, makeup, art, you name it. I adore the DOTD art, it's all pretty much awesome.

This year, instead of doing a typical sugar skull, I wanted to do a little bit of a different twist on it, so I did my dog Homer in the Dia de los Muertos style, and I'm super pleased with how he turned out. (He approved too...he even sat in the chair with me and supervised! :-P) I decided to give him a gold tooth, I think it makes him look more bad-ass. :D

Do you think the gold tooth is funny? Let me know in the comments below! :D
