Day 22- Inspired by A Song

Today I used my boyfriend’s suggestion to base my nail design on album art. I didn’t use the one that he originally suggested (Joe Satriani- Surfing With the Alien) although that one would have been really cool, I didnt have the perfect colors for it. lame. But I did choose a pretty cool one, I think. I chose Circa Survive- On Letting Go. I made a design based on the design that is on the balloon on the album cover! I like it, but I was a little rushed and I think if I had taken more time it would have turned out a little better. Its still pretty cool, in my opinion!

Here is the original album art:

right hand (with CS for Circa Survive)

left hand, with the girl from the front on my ring finger…woah the colors are weird in this one!

colors were:

  • base coat- essie grow faster
  • OPI- Slushied
  • NYC- Lexington Lilac
  • Sally Hansen- Sun Kissed
  • Sation- Hot 4 Teacher (red of the fire)
  • Love Charlotte XO- Yellow (yellow of the fire)
  • Wet N Wild- Wild Card (designs on balloon part)
  • Color Mates- Florida Sunset (girl’s dress)
  • Color Club- Nomadic in Nude (“CS”)
  • Wet N Wild- French White Créme (girl’s legs)
  • Milani- Black Sketch (tangled balloon strings)
  • Top coat- Seche Vite

also, what happens when I get my paycheck? i save it in my bank account tucked safely away where it should be.

no, i go out and buy nail polish!


at least I only spent $10….i could have done way worse damage!

today i got:

  • Wet N Wild- French White Créme (yes I finally got another white!!!)
  • NYC- Sidewalkers (I didnt have a light gray and it was 99¢)
  • NYC- Lexington Lilac
  • NYC- Tudor City Teal
  • Spoiled- Good Karma
  • Spoiled- Use Protection

I’m so excited to use these!!!

This post is getting kind of long, but I just wanted to end it by saying how excited I am for tomorrows mani. heres a small hint:
