Those ’70s Zig Zags

Zig Zags 1

Not those kind of Zig Zags, though there were plenty of those on That ’70s Show (of which I was an occasional watcher; the hazy circle bit, especially when it involved Eric’s parents, was never not hilarious.)  No, just that there’s something very 1970s about these zig zag nails, which I did as part of a challenge I’m participating in over on Instagram.  I think it’s the colour palette I chose, or maybe the fact that the stripes look a bit like one of those ultra chic sweater dresses, Missoni or not, the girls wore.

And if this post is not making a tremendous amount of sense, that’s because I’m hella sick, and maybe a bit loopty (typo, but I’m keeping it) on cough suppressant.  I have a cough that can bring down walls under the very best of circumstances, and these are not my best circumstances.  I took a bath yesterday, and counted the fact that I was able to pull myself out of the tub more or less under my own power as a major victory, and then once more returned to my sickbed.  Oh, look at that – I’ve gone all Victorian on you.  From the 1970s to the 1870s!

Anyhow, hope you enjoy these nails.  I’m going back to bed.

    • Hey, now there’s an idea! Actually, I think there used to be this nail art supply company that would print photos onto stickers that you could then put onto your nails like decals. I’ve no idea if they’re still going or not – I never tried them myself; your nails are so small a canvas, the photos would just invariably end up looking like blurry little bits.

    • You’re too kind! I think it might be that when I’m looped on cold meds, I just kind of throw caution to the wind and just do it, no hesitation – sometimes you get better results that way, weirdly, just by barging headlong straight into something. Sounds a bit like life that way. 😉
