Second week of school saddle shoes. I think I also may be dating myself with my choice of back-to-school nail art – chalkboard nails last week and 1950s-style saddle shoes today. What’s next, a lacquered ode to typing class?
These nails were inspired by MY saddle shoes, silver studded Bass saddles that weigh about five pounds each. Wearing them around for just a couple of hours totally counts as leg day! But they look super cute paired with retro swing dresses (obviously) and skinny jeans, too, AND they make for some pretty fantastic nail art – all ticks in the plus column. 🙂
Chalkboard nails. 😉 And a couple of apples for all my teacher friends. Do kids still give apples to their teachers? I’d think Starbucks gift cards go further these days – make caramel apple cider out of apples and all that good stuff.
Trevor the Pudgicorn (that’s a pudgy unicorn; I think he actually prefers the term stub-esque) has gone on many adventures in my nail art. Okay, so technically, he’s been on two adventures – standing majestic in a field of glimmering periwinkle and checking out his namesake bubble bar from Lush. But that’s two more “adventures” than the average Pudgicorn, so I’m going with it!
Today Trevor is heading back to school in these mostly black and white nails (plus some pink, blue and yellow mane-and-tail action) for day seven’s theme of black and white in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. He would have gone with all the other unicorns yesterday, but he missed the bus.
This is actually Trevor’s first year matriculating with all the other little Pudgicorns, and wouldn’t you know it, he’s somehow already found his way into after-school detention over there on my pinkie finger chalkboard. Trevor, get it together, dude! You’ll never get into unicorn med school at this rate. 😦
