Mozart Likes Nail Art!

You may or may not have noticed that my last post was screwy until today. Yeah.... Blogger sucks. For some reason it likes to just save (and not accurately) when I click "publish." It is incredibly frustrating and a big reason why I don't post more often.

Enough with the chit chat and on with the pictures!

As I mentioned before, while my friend was visiting us, we took him to Vienna (Wien), Austria for a few days. I played the clarinet from 7th grade until my first year of college and my visiting friend just graduated yesterday with his Masters in Music Performance. With our musical backgrounds, we were very excited to visit what is an important city in musical history. We visited the house where the Mozarthaus. I decided to do some musical nails with a stamping plate I hadn't yet tested for the trip.

You can tell on the middle finger I accidentally stamped the purple when I should have stamped pink. I did the pink over it, but you could hardly tell in person. I ended up liking how the purple on purple looked, so I switched up the colors on the left hand. I really liked them both. :)

Yikes my cuticles look a tad rough. I hadn't yet discovered cuticle nippers. 

Which look do you prefer: alternating colors or the same color?

MSMD Week 2! - Bright Spring Freehand Roses

Hello again! I have another Monkey See Monkey Do mani for you again this week. I know I'm a day late (and a dollar short), but this has been a 4 day weekend for me. Instead of posting yesterday, I spent hours looking at sparkly jewelry online. lol. I hope you will forgive me.

This picture was my inspiration. Once again, I didn't do a literal copy of the art, but I think it will count.
