the all seeing eye meets my nails

photo-1Hump day nails! Man I really hate that term. Hump day. Especially when I have to work. It clearly amplifies how much fun I’m not having while I am in the office…working hard at…umm…blogging.

My nails are super short right now in the hopes that I won’t destroy them before the ever-important Christmas nails. This week’s design is a bit of mix and match, black and studs style. With a couple of all seeing eyes thrown in there. Those are inspired by my man, he loves the all seeing eye in the pyramid. After looking online for Christmas presents for him last night I couldn’t get it out of my head so I decided my digits should have some.

This is the first time I’ve used studs and they haven’t come off – several layers of top coat is the key!

I am gearing up to do Christmas nails for my trip to Ireland, and I must admit I’m seeing a lot of really great examples online, but the majority use stamping tools. And you know me, folks, that’s not my style. All freehand baby. I think I’m going to have to set aside at least 12 hours to do these nails, and given that it is party season that will be incredibly difficult.

Bring on the party season xx
