Things i can not control

I’m meant to have a post going up tomorrow. But sadly i’ve not written it yet. This is because there’s been a death in my family. And I’m just not quite able to do everything. It was a long time coming and it’s better now as at least he’s not suffering, but it comes as little consolation to how much i miss him. I’ll try and have it posted by the 29th instead.

Geek Series – Pokeball

20120820-003606.jpg

I was thinking about what else i could put in the geek series and i remembered, while at the wedding of my friend a few weeks back, towards the end of the night an amazing moment happened. The Pokemon theme came on, and what made this moment amazing? We all, in unison, without prompting, started singing along, every word, without missing any. It was a beautiful moment.

Anyway that’s what inspired me to do these nails.

‘I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was. To catch them is my real test, to train them is my cause.
I will travel across the land, searching far and wide. Each Pokemon to understand, the power that’s inside.
Pokemon, its you and me, I know it’s my destiny, Pokemon, oh, you’re my best friend, in a world we must defend, Pokemon, a heart so true, our courage will pull us through.’

Anyway……… The colours i used for this look are:

‘White on white’ by Revlon, ‘Blackout’ by Rimmel, and ‘Hot gossip’ by Rimmel.

Plenty more photos after the cut.

Homage to the bride

20120803-012123.jpg

So one of my oldest friends got married on the 28th July, and i did her nails for her!

But these are the nails she was meant to have. Sadly we finished the the night before and during the night they smudged during the night : ( and we didn’t have enough left to do both hands again so a not as fun set of nails were done instead. But this is what they were meant to look like.

Products used:

Marvel temporary tattoos, ‘White on white’ by Revlon, ‘Hot Gossip’ by Rimmel and ‘Heartbeat’ by 17
