So, we begin another new week. That means a new theme for She Who Does Nail Art Challenges, hosted by She Who Does Nails. The theme this week is reptiles, which is a bit random, but very cool and unusual. I actually have two manicures for this theme, as partway through doing the first, I was struck by inspiration! So much so that I put my first idea on hold while I did this one!
I'll explain. The base colour I was using is Collection 2000 Ninja, a bright green, and I soon found myself humming a certain cartoon theme song. A cartoon about ninjas and reptiles. It was too perfect not to do - can you guess what it is yet?
|Heroes in a half shell, turtle power!|
I loved the turtles - they were so cool, and for some reason their pizza always looked so tasty! So I geeked out a bit, and created a manicure in their honour.
My base is Collection 2000 Ninja, and I drew on their...blindfold thingies using Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Model Behavior (Leonardo), Good To Grape (Donatello), Fired Up (Michelangelo) and Right Said Red (Raphael). I then drew a turtle shell using my new Barry M Black Nail Art Pen.
In case you were wondering, my favourite was Donatello, because he was the clever one. However acoording to THIS quiz, I am most like Michelangelo (also, how scary are the 'new' turtles?! They're the stuff of nightmares! My manicure honours the old turtles!).
