Happy Caturday, everyone. It's been an average Saturday in this household: our feline residents have been lying around and expecting their grapes peeled for them. In that next life they talk about, I plan on coming back as somebody's beloved family cat. Seriously. No. Greater. Gig. Ever.
But in the meantime...
I've been swirling in the vortex that was a challenging work week. My employer recently undertook a large software and systems conversion that's consumed my attention. It wasn't until today that I redirected focus to relaxation, pretty things, Kimber's ABC Challenge, and my letter "A" mani...
A great big hat tip to Love'n Everything Nails for the design. I spotted this on her Facebook page and instantly fell in love with its simultaneously pop-arty, bold, yin yangy style. She does lovely work, and I recommend you drop by her page to say "hi!"
I spent a a good twenty minutes searching through my collection for polishes that began with the letter "A." Mmm hmm. Now, I understand why so many organize their stash with Excel.
And what did I find? OPI's bright creamy core basic: Alpine White; and China Glaze's Agro, a Hunger Games favorite (and Peridot near-dupe).
I didn't notice a tutorial on Love'n Everything for this design, but the free wheeling pattern seemed simple enough to replicate. I hope I did her lovely work some justice over here. If it's in any way unclear to you, let me know in comments and I'll pull together a quick how-to.
I'm going to get a kick out this challenge. There's a certain whimsy involved in matching up letters to lacquer. Lacquers and letters: two of my very favorite things!
Well, that's it for today, folks.
Can't wait to see what my co-challengers have in store these coming 25 weeks. Speaking of which, please join me, to see the fun and color they've this week brought to their "A" game...
