I had a fantastic Holiday weekend! I hope all of you celebrating did as well! My thanksgiving was wonderful. The hubs and I went to my parents house for an awesome, Puerto Rican style, feast. I cooked a giant batch of Arroz con Gandules y Tocineta. My mom made a glazed ham with Pineapple and cherries, alcapurrias and tostones! For dessert we had Dutch Apple pie from an Amish restaurant. Everything was DELISHHHH! I think I gained like 5 pounds over the weekend!
I didn't really do the Black Friday thing, did you guys? Black Friday scarred me for life when I worked retail. I just can't bring myself to enjoy shopping while shoulder-checking people left and right lol. The husband did all his shopping online, and is already teasing me about the goodies he picked out for me! I'll probably wait 'till the last minute to do my shopping like a TRUE American lolol!
So onto the reason you read this blog hahah! NAILS! Today Rie, and I will be catching up with Sammy who posted her Day 25; Book inspired nails back on Thursday. The girls and I also decided that for the last few days of the challenge we will only be posting Challenge nails on Tuesday and Thursday. Those last few days are pretty though. Speaking of which, the look you will see today is the FOURTH take... Yeah.. I re-did this mani four times.. I was pretty frustrated...
So the base for nails was inspired by my WAH Nails Book of Nail Art cover art! How fitting right? I found out about this book from the awesome Sammy. She posted a look she did a while back and I absolutely had to have the book. The black drips on the nails were done because the drippy nails are one of the looks that the book teaches you to do, and I was hell-bent on getting the drips down! I love this book BTW! It is a fun and well put together guide for great nail art.
Even though it took me several tries to get them down, I really like the finished look! These were eye-catching and girly, with a twist. Now don't forget to stop by my challenge partners Rie and Sam's to see their Book inspired looks for day 24!
