1940's inspired leopard nails

i'm too sleepy to think of a cute title for this post. >.< this is the nail polish design i created and wore back in december for bf's 1940's holiday party. apparently in the 1940's it was really popular to have a polished nail with a left out white half-moon at the base and a white sliver at tip. i did my best to re-create that style, but of course i wanted to put my own spin on it.

it was also really common to coordinate your polish to match the colors of your outfit. i painted my nails when i originally thought i would still be wearing my leopard print fascinator. oops. it ended up being a happy oops though. i really love the end result (minus a few sloppy areas >.<). i don't think i've ever received so many results on my nails before either! and it was kinda a proud moment, too, to say that i created and painted these on my own, and no this isn't a nail wrap design.

please excuse the ugly climber hands the polish is on. climbing really, really screws up my skin :( just look at the pretty design and ignore the skin around it. lol.

on another note, some more exciting news

  1. blogger now has threading for comments! what does this mean? this means i can finally reply directly to all your wonderful comments!! i'm so excited.. i felt like this was one thing really missing from the blogger interface and now it's here!
