Northern Lights

Northern Lights 2

Rainbow multi-chrome styles.

I’ve actually never seen the Northern Lights.  Supposedly they’re periodically visible in my neck of the eastern Ontario woods (literally; the Gatineau Hills are staring at me from directly across the Ottawa River) but never have I ever.  I’ve also visited the way-up-north of the Great White North, Nunavut, home to little else but mile upon mile kilometer upon kilometer of endless sky, and still no Northern Lights.  I also didn’t see a polar bear, but for that I’m more grateful than disappointed (not for lack of hype; when I stepped off the plane in Iqaluit, the very first thing I saw was a poster advising me to please NOT feed the polar bears.  Hey man, done and done – you don’t need to tell me twice!)

So, one of these days.  But for now, nails. 🙂

Skull-Free Sugar Skulls

Skull-Free Sugar Skulls 1

Cinco de Mayo-inspired nails, just cinco or so days late. 😉 All of the beautiful design work, none of my pesky inability to draw skulls, even skulls with candy hearts for eyes.

Parenthetically, it’s been an absolute eternity since I’ve sat down with a random bunch of polishes and just gone to town on a super detailed design; I’ve missed it.  I mean, Mickey nails are great and all, but sometimes you want a bit more than three dots in the shape of a mouse head.  Why you’d want more than that I truly don’t know, but I think it’s pretty well established that I’ve got a wicked case of Disney Brain and can see nothing but three dots in the shape of a mouse head anyways.  I think that’s why I like this manicure so much – a decided lack of Disney, will wonders never cease!  Enjoy it while it lasts, folks.
