You Can’t Close the Beaches! (OMD2)

You Can't Close the Beaches!

You don’t have the authority to close the beaches! Tourism dollars, island communities, blah diddy blah blah bla — oh cripes, did we mention the shark? Really, it’s no biggie – he only eats every second or third fisherman, and failing that, your kids and pets and Sunday roasts. Pretty much business as usual around Amity Island.

For today’s theme of nautical in the Oh Mon Dieu nail art challenge – the first time I have actually been able to say that as opposed to the day number, because I have been annoyingly off the pace from the very beginning – I have clearly taken great inspiration from a favourite movie and nail art subject, Jaws. More specifically, I attempted to recreate the mayor’s outstanding grey seersucker blazer dotted with tiny embroidered anchors, with my own bloody and naughty-cal touch.

Judging from the look of things, dude, I think you should have closed the beaches.

  1. Haha fintastic! (sorry) I’ve been way off with all my days too, I think you can be excused. Love the anchor nails, and that shark is way cute, probably how a shark should never be described but.

    • Thank you! And yes, he is a bit cute – it’s a bit of a blind spot in my style in that every time I paint a critter of some sort, even the scary, bitey ones – especially the scary, bitey ones – they wind up looking like an adorable little cartoon.

    • Oh my gosh, not at all – I am fully aware that my style is more cartooney than real, which is by and large okay, but then I sometimes see other people’s little mini works of art and it’s a world of uuuuuggggghhhhhh. 🙂 It’s sweet that you remembered my weirdo, pupil-less critters!
