Clueless About Dieting

Clueless About Dieting

Or would that actually be Clueless ON Dieting?  Because this manicure represents Cher Horowitz’s confession to her best friend Dionne that stress has her indulging in a very heifer-like diet (as if!) of “two bowls of Special K, three pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of popcorn, five Peanut Butter M&Ms and, like, three pieces of licorice.”  Just missing the licorice, but then again, you can’t miss that which you don’t like in the first place, and I’ve never developed a taste for licorice.  I’m down with the rest of that stuff, though, just maybe not at the same time.  Maybe.  I don’t know, bacon and PB M&M popcorn cereal bars *could* be a thing, right?

The Impression That I Get (31DC2016)

the-impression-that-i-get

Day 27’s always-daunting theme in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge was artwork, and so I thought I’d simply whip up these very Impressionistic nails – you know, just dash off my interpretation of one of the Masters hard at work (in this case Monet.)  Nuthin’ to it!

But actually, aside from a bit of a time and a lot of patience in wrangling about 15 different bottles of nail polish, these nails were not that difficult.  Best of all, I think they’re full-on Monets – all right at a distance, but a big old mess up close.  And considering the source on that bit of wisdom (Cher Horowitz of Clueless) I’m feeling quite positive about my first attempt at art forgery. 😉

A Full-On Monet

Monet fingers

Bahahahaha! Okay, so I don’t know what happened with this manicure here, my attempt at layers of delicate climbing flowers, but to quote the great Cher Horowitz, it’s a full-on Monet (that means at a distance it looks all right, but up close it’s a big old mess.) Hagsville, as Christian would then snottily sneer. All right, so perhaps not Hagsville – this manicure is still pretty, it’s just a touch messy and a whole lot ill-defined. It happens, particularly when you’re trying to cram a too-complicated design into the day’s final remaining hour of photo-friendly sunlight. In summary, don’t rush things, and, as always, Clueless is awesome.
