Gold & Blue Flare

I don't know about you, but my nail color/design choices often reflect either a close holiday, or how I happen to be feeling the day I do the manicure. Last night, I was so tired I could hardly keep my eyes open, due to my husband's new job and the earlier start time we're both trying to adjust to (and not doing so well with). Thought I'd paint sleepy "Z's" on my fingers to reflect my state, and the gold paint pen I was using just would not cooperate (too thin).

Needless to say, I was too tired to fix it, so it will stay until this weekend (and a 4th of July manicure). The blue polish is "Blue Flare" from Avon's new "big 3 free" line, and went on smooth and easy, opaque in one coat. The gold is a Nubar nail art pen. It actually worked better doing my right hand (shown below), because my left fingers apparently didn't put as much pressure on the bottle!
That's it for me this week - happy polishing!

lol - cute idea with the "z"s. Can't wait to see your 4th of July mani!

Nice design and color. I can totally understand the lack of sleep. I've only had 4 hours and I can hardly think. Nice nails for a sleep deprived person. Hope you both soon get used to the new hours.

I like that color a lot, and the z's are really cute!

i am nail art crazy too. Nail art is a creative field and the fashioning and designing of nails is becoming more and more innovative. Various mediums like dried flowers, beads and fabrics can be used to enhance the beauty of nails.

Brooke, Lucy & Kae, thanks! I think we might eventually get used to the new hours...in a few weeks. ;-) Today is Friday - sleeping in tomorrow!

I do like the blue/gold combo, and will play with it more in the future, I think.

redhotchilly12 - thanks for the link, I'll have to check out your videos soon. Great idea for nail art blogging! Something to think about...

Nice introductory article to nail art, rajaswari. Thanks for stopping by & sharing. :-)
