Naaarthing to see here

I may finally be off my tea kick... but don't count on it. Still today's mani was not inspired by a tea box... as a matter of fact it was inspired by a joke.

How much does it cost a pirate to get his ears pierced? A buccaneer.

This joke has been in my head since I read it on a group page off facebook. Some of the responses before the real answer were quiet funny. Like "Naaarthing" and "A fight with captain hook!" Still it sat with me and when I got a lovely box in the mail today (which will be a post in the next day or two) I had to bust these babies out.

Used for this mani: OPI- Ogre the top Blue, China Glaze- Blue Sparrow, Konad Special Polish- White, Yellow and Pastel Blue. Plates from Chez-Delaney- A37 and D22.

Again I sponged a color over another color. This time it was to somewhat create the effect of glittery water. My nail in fluorescent light don't really show it off well, but in the sun its pretty and shiny. Ogre the top blue in two coats was applied first, left to dry and then I sponged Blue Sparrow just at the tips. I am kind of leaning toward the idea that a light blue than ogre would have really made this pop more. Live an learn.

I absolutely love my new plates. Sadly I now need to find something else to store my image plates. The photo album I have been using to store them is completely full for one, and two doesn't lay flat when closed. Its very over stuffed. I would rather not have more than one storage system so I shall see what I can find in my area.

Happy Polishing my loves! And stay tuned :)
