This manicure started out life as a coral design. I was going to make a bunch of The Walking Dead Carl/Coral jokes, too (the filthier and more unhinged Rick gets, the more he defaults to bellowing for his son, CORAL!!! Please watch this short YouTube video that inexplicably makes me nearly pee my pants every time I see it for further explanation and laughter:)
All was going well with the CORAL!!! design until I added the dark orange and yellow shading along the branches of the you-know-what, turning this CAWWWWRRRLLL into something more closely resembling the diagram on page 74 of your grade 11 biology textbook. Still pretty, although also sort of icky. I don’t like it when my nail art gets too real. Cotton candy zombie unicorns, yes, the inner workings of the human form, lord NO.
And so I changed the title of this post to better reflect the reality of these nails, although I’m glad I was able to work in that Walking Dead joke regardless. Bless you, Rick Grimes, you incompetent bastard; never stop losing your sh— CORAL?!?
