Nail Care - 2013

I wanted to take a little time to record what I found works for me with regard to nail care. There is more than I originally could imagine involved "behind the scenes" to having healthy looking hands and polished fingernails. As I've previously mentioned, taking care of my nails (& hands) is not something I did until my lifestyle changed a few years ago. It's important to note, I've slowly worked up to the routine I currently use. I personally find it all worth it to show off my little canvases of fun! Find out all the details in this post.

Flower Lattice Over Raspberry Parfait

The 15th design for the challenge was "Delicate Print". And, a simple and subtle design is just what the doctor ordered. (Keep reading to find out why.)

Flowers: Warrior Woman Style

Adding a twist, I used the polish called Warrior Woman, by independent polish brand, Lucky 13 as the inspiration for the flower design (14th in #31DC2013). The polish is a tribute to the character Zoe Washburne of Joss Whedon's TV series, Firefly and movie, Serenity.  (If you don't know who Zoe is, there are some photos of her later in this post.) Nail polish and especially floral designs are NOT what people think of with Zoe. This fact made the design challenge-worthy and struck a personal chord; as anyone who's known me for most of my life would NOT think of polish on my nails either.

Almost Abstract Giraffe Print

Animal Print was the 13th design prompt for the #31DC2013 and I chose to imitate the giraffe. My design came out short of what I had envisioned it to be; however, I did enjoy wearing it. They made me smile whenever I noticed my fingers typing, holding the TV remote, etc. And, in this post I include a few photos of the cutest giraffes - ever!

Two-Toned Teal Stripes

Design #12 in the 31DC2013 was stripes. It was amazing how something so simple could result in my complete brain-freeze about what to do for this one. There are tons of stripe design options, and after too much time over-thinking about it; I eventually chose basic vertical stripes.
