Another late post, my bad. You guys know how it is when your schedule is thrown off...it throws EVERYTHING off. I'm playing a major game of catch-up just to hang in there during this messy week! It's all good though, I'm still keeping my head above water =] Today, I'm continuing with my Summer Fun Challenge...
Wow, this also marks the halfway point of the challenge. This thing has gone by fast, maybe I should make it longer next time =P! Today's theme is "We Like it Hot, Hot, Hot" and I won't lie, I had trouble deciding what to do with this one. I know I could have gone the flame/fire route and made a pretty cool mani (like some awesome participants did, see below!), but I wanted to try something more personal. Miss Sarah of Chalkboard Nails, who also lives in
an oven Arizona, suggested I try a mani that represented the horrendous temperatures of our home state. While brainstorming, I just couldn't shake the way over-used saying we have around here..."Its a dry heat." People say this to try to somehow justify the killer heat since it isn't sticky and humid, but it doesn't exactly work in my opinion...hot is still hot, whether it's wet or dry! So, since this phrase represents the extreme-yet-somehow-tolerable-because-they're-dry temperatures of Arizona, I thought I'd transfer it directly into my mani! I used Zoya Cho, Essie Armed & Ready, Dr.'s Remedy GLEE Gold, SinfulColors Snow Me White, Zoya Carey, Stripe Rite Black and OPI Color So Hot It Berns (how appropriate!). Take a looksie!
|Yes, I know I messed up...pretend that "its" is an "it's" =]|
I rolled balls of saran wrap and stamped them on my nails to create a sandy/dirty background and freehanded the animal skull on my pinky. I'll admit, this look isn't so wearable as it is comical...but hey, it fits today's theme perfectly =P!
Have an awesome day!
