Hellllllo all!! I am back!
After 6-ish long weeks with the internet out at our house, I am back to my regularly scheduled programming, (cleaning, sleep schedule, eating, etc.) and this includes blogging! Big round of applause for Super Marquette for doing all the blogging while I have been out. She is a super trooper! Love her!
I was at the school for homework and assignments this last 6 weeks and those computers do not play nice with blogger. But here I am and I am ready to get back to the swing of things!
While I was out, my Sister-in-law Tonya sent me this Pinstrosity through a texting convo.
Check it out!
Tonya liked how fun the polka dots were, and this is just in time for Halloween, but they didn't quite work like she was hoping.
Chip's first words when he saw it were, "Those are toes not fingers, there isn't enough room for art on toes!". In a sense he is right, toes aren't always good for nail art because toes are smaller, the big toe is usually ok, but fingers are generally a lot easier for stuff like this.
She told me she used a bobby pin for the dots, and I mentioned that the end of a pen, or a safety pin would be good, or even the end of a mechanical pencil, or the end of an old earing. These are all smaller than the bulbous end of a bobby pin. There are tools you can buy to do nail art specifically and they come in different sizes, I have one but after winging it for years I almost prefer a safety pin or sewing pin. With that being said please be cautious with those, they are sharp!
We laughed about the picture she sent, and then she sent me this no more than 5 minutes after our conversation:
She dropped the nail polish and got it all over herself, her kitchen cabinets and her floor! At which point she asked me for pins to clean up the mess.
I sent her this, while I have never tried it I thought it might be worth giving it a shot:
Putting sugar on spilt polish. Supposedly it is supposed to soak up the polish so you can just sweep everything up. Unfortunately she had already cleaned everything with acetone nail polish to try to get it off (which I would discourage it can take color off your floors or cabinets), instead I suggest non-acetone nail polish remover. We got a good laugh out of it though!
Anyone else have any Halloweeny Pinstrosities!? Send em' our way! We would love to see and perhaps feature them!
Has anyone tried the sugar trick form above?! Tell us how it worked for you! We would love to hear that as well!
Hope everyone is having a great week!
