Good day, Kitschies! So...I tempted fate one too many times on Friday. We were at a company get-together, having a grand time and we were talking about our kids and their various sicknesses. Of course, I was *bragging* that my kids don't get sick. Oh, sure...the occasional sniffle, but never really sick-sick. Guess what I woke up to at 12:30 that night? Yep. Mason was sick. Like, puking sick. We cleaned him up and got everybody back to bed only to be woken up a second (and third) time. I decided it was useless to keep changing him and his sheets, so I slept with him on the couch. He was a little better by morning but was rather lethargic. Saturday was pretty good - nobody else was sick. Sunday was good...for the most part. The hubs woke up sick in the middle of the night on Sunday. Nate was sick as soon as he got up on Monday morning. And so was I. Oh, it was horrible!! The hubs got it together enough to take Mason to daycare, but Nate and I spent the morning in bed. All three of us were zombies in my bed yesterday...and if you know Nate, you know he does not sit still for long and he does not spend time with us in our bed. But, there we were, pathetic, in and out of sleep until noon. While I'd love to sleep in til noon, this wasn't exactly what I had in mind. Today we're all on the road to recovery today, but lemme tell ya...I *won't* be bragging about our lack of sickness any time soon!!
Enough about the sickies. On to the good stuff!
This is one of my favorite manis I've ever done. And it was pretty easy, too!
I started off with a base of Ulta Black Lace, a super dark grey creme on all the fingers except for the ring finger, which I used Ulta Underground, a blackened teal shimmer. Then, using varying sized dotting tools and the acrylic paint, I placed random dots in random sizes until I was happy with the pattern.
One more picture just because. Indirect light, indoors. Now that I see this, I want to do another mani like it...only in different colors. Suggestions for colors?
