1Up Mushroom Nails

Monday, June 21, 2010
Hi everyone!  My my my...time seems to fly.  Can you believe I'm at 19 weeks already?!?  Almost half way!!  And I'm sure the news you've all been waiting for....the baby is a boy!  What were we hoping for, you might ask?  Hmm...either or would have been fine.  I mean...each has their own benefits...and since we didn't plan the pregnancy, it's not like we were shooting for a particular sex.  And, for the record, this is going to be our one and only!  So we'll take whatever is thrown at us! =)

Anyhoo, I've been dying to do some nail art for the longest time.  It's been a few months since the wedding and my nails have almost completely grown out from the horrible jinx the nail salon put on me! Maybe in the next couple weeks, the last week part will have grown out, and I'll be back to my former glory.  Hurray!

Here's a pic of my current nails.  (Sorry it's not as sharp as other pics...this was taken on my BB.)  I just did this earlier today!  I got this design from one of the guru's on YouTube.  Her name is cutepolish and here's a link to her video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3FgpqzBf8I .

Obviously, I don't need to go into specifics.  But the only change I did make was that I put on a green glitter polish on top of the lime green, just to add that extra sparkle.  I call this version the "1Up Mushroom Nails".  The other version...not sure what mushroom is red and white.  The one that makes Mario bigger is actually red and yellow.  Oops...is that my inner geekiness coming out?  Well, the fact that I actually know what design these nails are from, coupled with the fact that I am now sporting them...yeah...I admit it, I'm a geek, lol.  Onna otaku ftw!

As a quick update, I *hope* to have a video out tomorrow or the next day.  I am going to be a bridesmaid in one of my friend's wedding, and I have an idea for how I want to do my nails for her big day!  So I figured I'd just make a video.  I won't be doing them on my own nails till next week sometime, but in the meantime, I plan to do them on my fake fingers, tee-hee.  So.....hopefully back tomorrow or Tuesday.  <3 Laterz everyone!
