#31DC2013- Inspired by a Tutorial

I came upon Lucy’s Stash from another blogger, once I glanced at it I knew I was hooked. Her nail art is gorgeous. One that really drew my eye was the Beaded Pattern nails.

Here is her design….

#31DC2013-Inspired by the Supernatural

I love all things spooky. I still have my childhood wonder that all of the make believe stuff is real. I believe in Ghost, and Nessie the Loch Ness Monster, I even wish vampires were real ( Not Twilight vampires Anne Rice Interview with the Vampire vampires.) The one thing that gives me the creeps is aliens. Don’t get me wrong I love a good alien movie, War of the Worlds is part of my top 5 favorite movies. Not that you care,but my list of movies in no particular order

  1. Saw
  2. War of the Worlds
  3. Interview with the Vampire
  4. Jurassic Park
  5. Pitch Black

Hmmm all all supernatural ( I am such a weird girl) I decided to do little green men on my nails

I don’t really follow art, not sure what is considered good or bad, but I know what I like,  I saw this pretty fall image on yet again Google and tried to replicate it. I have to work on minimizing my shapes so that I can fit more on the nail.

#31DC2013-Inspired by a Pattern

I’m still here just not getting as much “me” time as I would like. Sorry for the spam of post today I am just trying to get caught up. I have not looked at anything anyone else has posted so far, so if anything looks similar it is pure coincidence.

Also I got a car! Yay for me no more taking the bus for this girl. Yea it has some dings in it, but it gets me from point A to point B. I’m going to name it RuPaul, it was clearly a guy car and I am going to remake it into a girl. I already bought a bedazzled steering wheel cover and am working on the bedazzled floor mat and gear shift.

Onto the nails….My patter was leopard and cheetah. I was at a friends house and she had this design on her nails and I had to replicate it.

#31DC2013- Inspired by Fashion

I do not follow fashion at at all. I’m probably wearing things that were cool the season before and lord forbid I only have one purse, it does what it is supposed to hold my shit and when its ripped or dirty I buy a new one. I Googled fall fashion and saw this cool skirt so I was like I’ll try that.

The nails came out cooler than I thought it would, so mad my nails are still in nail hell and I could not wear this design.

#31DC2013- Inspired by a Book

Gosh so many books too few nails! This one really stumped me as I too many favorites I decided to go with one with sentimental value. When my great grandmother passed away when I was little ( say middle school age). We were cleaning out her house and I came across a romance novel  called Kingdom of Dreams, now I was still in my Stephen King , Dean Koontz faze so it was the first time I ever read one of these smut novels.  After reading this book I was hooked. I fell in love with the story and after the book got destroyed a few years later. I went out and bought a new copy and re-read the story ( there are few books I will re-read).

The background on the story is:

Jennifer Merrick is the feisty daughter of a Scottish laird. Royce Westmoreland, the “Black Wolf”, is sent by the King of England to wage war against Scotland. When Royce’s brother, Stefan Westmoreland, kidnaps Jennifer and her stepsister, Brenna, and brings them to Royce’s camp, the lives of the two become intertwined. Royce and Jennifer must marry by order of the King of England and the King of Scotland after they consummate their keeper-prisoner relationship.

Forced to accept the marriage, Jennifer’s family try to make the marriage fail by intending to sent her to become a nun in a convent after the wedding reception. Royce beats the family plan by kidnapping her first and takes her to his home. The King of England orders the two families to settle their score in a tournament where Jennifer must choose which family her loyalty lies with.

Here is my kingdom of dreams
