Hieroglyphics

Hieroglyphics 1

Hieroglyphics over a dry brush papyrus mani, but without the cartouche (that’s the little oval-shaped frame that goes around proper nouns.)  This manicure spells out LOVE in hieroglyphics.  For the curious, I do not have HATE hieroglyph’d on my other hand – I’m total crap at nail art on my right hand.  Besides, I had a hard enough time with the lion symbol that stands for the letter L; trying to do a right-hand eagle for the A sound would have just about given me a stroke.  But I do like to think about the first Egyptian punk bombing around the birthplace of the pharaohs with a LOVE/HATE tattoo in hieroglyphs across his knuckles.  Badass. 😉

  1. Haha it would have been awesome to have “HATE” on the right hand. 😛 This is definitely filed in my brain as “very unique mani”. Well done!

    • Thanks very much! And it didn’t take *too* long, although I did have to brush up on my Egyptian hieroglyph alphabet (all I could remember were those horrible eagles for the letter A!)
