Had a lazy morning of it today just kicking back on the couch with the dogs all cuddled up, some good coffee and a lightweight movie on tv.  Last night I put down a two coat base of nubar Brilliant with a Seche Vite topcoat — and even ate crawfish with zero chipping! — then pulled out the Migi pens to doodle while listening to the movie.  I started with a two hump line on each nail and then just kept on building up on that (with a few unhelpful “I’m just readjusting!” doggie bumps).  The bright pink was a little overwhelming in the mix so I added some dot lines over the top of the arcs to balance it out a little.  Stepping back, it occurred to me that it sort of looked like the tops of some hearts peeking into the nail with echo rings, so yay I found a theme other than “doodle” for a change.

      Thank you! I love these shiny nubars… Basically I love nubar, they may actually be my favorite (ssshhhh don’t tell the others).

    The design is super cute but I’m more jealous of you eating crawfish! I miss it soooooo much! Lol

      I waited SO LONG to finally get crawfish this year! I’ve already decided that if I get some good news I’m holding out for this week I’m going to bike over to Big Fisherman, pick up a 10lb sack full of crawfish, and stuff my face at the park.

      I think the Louisiana Crawfish Co. will ship them to wherever if you REALLY want some… I’m sure the shipping costs suck but, you know, CRAWFISH. It’d probably be worth it. :)

    Whoot a crawfish proof polish?? They should put that in the slogan! ;D Looks like a really pretty and sparkly pink!

      I know right?! Though the SV is probably best credited since I wrapped the tips, but still… was definitely expecting a cleanup job and it was miraculously still okay!

    Very nice! Reminds me a bit of paisley fabric for some reason.
