I watch a lot of crappy tv — or mostly listen to it when I’m working, but point is, when CNN is too much I switch gears to total jumk.  And the Cris Abrego empire of human embarrassment always makes it onto my DVR, because I’m classy like that.  But when I actually look up at the screen there are all these fantastic colors and patterns all over the place, hats off to the designers that work these gigs!  This mani is a darker invert attempt at the wallpaper pattern that’s in some of the rooms of this season’s Tough Love Miami:

Tough Love Miami

I used butter LONDON British Racing Green as the base — this is ONE coat, I love it.  You know you want to rush through Sherwood Forest with this on your nails.  Then I used the Aqua Art Club striper to squiggle the line pattern, or at least try to (I adore the ease of the striper brushes but they come on awful thick).
