Update: just for the record, I do like Heminway’s short stories. However, I harbor a profound dislike for TOMATS.
So, the other day as I was writing an essay for The Old Man And The Sea by Ernest Hemingway, I was struck with a moment of brilliant inspiration. Hemingway, despite the fact that I’ve read your book twice and still dislike it, it does have its uses. Why? It inspired my manicure!
Yaa fish scale nails! Basically, I painted my nails with China Glaze Cherish and thought wow. That looks incredibly boring. So I took a cue from Hemingway (who is probably rolling over in his grave screaming I did not condone this!!! right now) and went over it with Covergirl Boundless Color Disco Dazzle Topcoat. Silver hexagons of chunky glitter + silver sparkles. I love it. I was told that the effect was pretty mesmerizing, and I’d have to agree. My photos don’t really capture the essence of this manicure, but click on the pictures below to full size them and get a better idea of it.
First without flash. This is more color-accurate for the green:
And now with flash, with shows off the glitter more:
And for those of you who are going to tell me that Hemingway’s fish was purple and silver, not green and silver, I say this to you: >.<
