Hey There Polished People!
Before I get to today’s nails, I just have to tell you- I absolutely love Fun. I like having fun, but what I’m talking about is the band called Fun. The period is part of their name, so don’t be confused when I say I like Fun.’s music. They’re a mix of pop/alt music and like the style of Billy Joel with the story-telling and unapologetic drama within their songs. I just love them! I listen to them every day while I’m doing my housework/job applications/blogging (today) and I just listen to their album Some Nights over and over on repeat. I think my favorite songs off their album are Carry On (I’m a sucker for a good inspirational song) and Stars. They even do autotune in a cool way. Seriously, I love them, and the sad thing is that I JUST bought their album like a month or two ago. I could have been enjoying them for so much longer!!! I had a song or two but never got the album and now I just feel foolish. I thought it was funny (but still awesome!) that they won several Grammys including “Best New Artist” because they aren’t really new. I think they’re song, We Are Young, has been out and popular for like a year or more. Also, the lead singer cracked me up because when they won their first Grammy for Song Of The Year for We Are Young, he said, “I don’t know what I was thinking when I wrote this song, because when you see us in HD you will see that we are NOT young!” hahaha. Also, when they won for Best New Artist he was like, “We are so OLD!” but I’m thinking maybe he meant old, as in, “not a new artist” instead of his age again. The guy is only 30, but sorry to say for him, he does look a good 5-10 years older than his actual age. Sorry man, I still really like you!! Anyway, if you are looking for some “new” music to add to your iPod I highly recommend Some Nights. You’ll love it.
Somewhat unrelated but also “fun”, these next nails are the ones I previewed on Facebook late last week. I hope you like them! Once you have the base design done, the stamping is quick and easy! They really have nothing to do with Fun. except that with this blog post I made them connected. ;p
Fun. Nails (Rainbow Nails with Stamping)
How To Get These Nails:
- Start with my Melted Rainbow Nails.
- Using Konad Special Black polish and BM 319 stamp this design onto each nail.
- Use your favorite top coat very carefully so as not to smear the stamping. I used Ulta X Dry on these nails and I was NOT impressed. For one, it streaked like a crazy drunken frat boy, and it dried to an almost gummy consistency. I am so spoiled by my Seche Vite. I have, since this mani, used Jessica Brilliance and it’s an AWESOME quick dry topcoat. So awesome, in fact, that I was nervous if it was really big three free or not, but it’s supposed to be so I believe them. It dries the glassiest of any quick-dry, non-Seche topcoat. Even glassier than SH Mega Shine, but Mega Shine is still a good option. It dries quick and super shiny.
