My Vice

My Aunt showed up in a tank top so I snapped a photo to later replicate the design on my nails. The vice is one of my many hacks, if it’s metal and I can reface it I often do. The vice was cobalt blue before I attacked it with flamingo pink spray paint.🙂

Envy is a dark army green but it’s showing up as black

The Parrot Ate My Homework

Ever wonder what it would look like if a large parrot took a bite of your nail art?  I didn’t either however, my Cockatoo answered it for me anyhow.

Here she is…

She is not biting me but is fascinated with my nails.  I’ve been trying to keep them unpainted which helps quite a bit or paint and then remove it immediately. I don’t think gloves are the answer.  I can’t be the only one having these issues.

I don’t want to give up my hobby.  Anyone have any useful tips for distracting parrots from fingernails?

Happy Birthday

It’s my birthday and Independence Day!  This water marble MANicure is a present from my Husband, Mr. FLBN, who actually did my nails!  Mr. FLBN, an artist & hobby painter himself, was watching a youtube video of guitars being water marbled in 80’s colors and wanted to give it a try in red, white & blue. I have the greatest husband ever! Seriously.

I Heart Nail Art

I heart nail art and polish!  If only I could remind myself of that, I started biting my nails again and my thumb took the hit.  I’ve been biting my nails since I was a toddler and it’s a life long habit I’m trying to break. I think bringing a nail file with me at all times might help.
