Art Steady..


My goodness, can I take any longer to post something new? Well, it's been a slew of one-thing-after-the-nexts, and so here I find myself with a little update from almost two weeks ago...ah, well.

The bestie came into town, and what did I find on her nails? None other than some multi-colored leopard print, of course! No, they weren't press-on's...and to be honest, I really couldn't stop staring. At first I teased her, "Remember when we used to go down and get our acrylics airbrushed?..are you bringing it back?" (this of course was circa-1999, when we would venture down to the toughest neighborhood we could find, because we were just trying to "keep it real" out in the suburbs). Well, my teasing turned into reminiscing, and my reminiscing into curiosity. It was really growing on me. What would happen if I mixed a great sense of style, with just a slight sense of the other? Come on, you see Rihanna doing it at the Grammy's, and well...okay, maybe that's the only example I can think of.
So off I went, down to New York Nails, to pick out the first design I've had grace my fingertips since my Senior year of high school. Back then, it was a run-in with 1-inch fading blue lightning bolts. 15 minutes later (I kid you not--these folks are experts at this stuff..apparently mine was a very simple design!), I left sans acrylics, but with a custom-made variation of something I'd seen on the wall. It lasted much longer than they had predicted (1.5 weeks, as opposed to 3 days), and I'll definitely be back to experiment with the rasta colors I'm diggin' next. That's right, I keeps it reals.
