Hey look, it’s that banana split water marble I’ve been promising all summer long, extra sprinkles, cherry on top. And wonder of wonders, it kind of turned out this time – there’s definitely more banana to these sundaes than my last frozen pink lemonade attempt. Anyhow, grab a spoon, dig in and all that other yummy stuff!
Younger readers are confused right now because they have no idea what that’s referencing, and more seasoned, shall we say, readers are confused because did I seriously just make a Warrant reference? Yes, yes, I did! But what does it say about you that you knew what I was talking about, hmm? 😉 Skeezy metal music, kids. Us olds are talking about our silly old stuff again. I know, I know, it’s wicked tiresome. I swear, one day we will stop talking, just wait.
But for now, I’m going to talk about this manicure, which was inspired by the glitter polish I used here, Emily de Molly’s The Unloved, which I think looks like cherry pie filling. But then again, is there any polish that doesn’t remind me of food in some way? Very few, actually! Then I remembered that I had this adorable little nail charm from Daily Charme that would literally put the cherry on top of this gorgeous manicure. Sweet! Now sing it with me, everybody: “Tastes so good/make a grown man cry/sweet! cherry! pie!” Mmm, cherry pie.
With extra cherries, of course! Part jelly sandwich, part pond manicure, these nails are so cute and yummy looking, they have me eyeing up that jar of fruit cocktail I bought for my husband but really might just eat myself. *Goes out to kitchen* *Comes back defeated* Unnnnnnntttiillllll I realized he ate it two days ago. Aw, darnity hell damn crap! Better add fruit cocktail to the shopping list, although not painting my nails like nummy foodstuffs might help, too. 😉
Too many moons ago now to contemplate, my best friend gave me a china platter bearing the most adorable cherry print. At the time I was fresh out of university and just starting to build my homemaking nest, and this was one of the first “grown up” gifts I ever received.
Amazingly enough, despite my clutziest efforts, the platter still exists, and I use it every chance I get. And while I’d rather see it heaped with jam and cream-stuffed scones, using it as inspiration for some nail art seems like a pretty sweet idea, too.
