Hey There Polished People!
How are you all doing today? Today I have my mani from today’s Mommy’s Mani Monday collage group. This Monday’s prompt was “When I Grow Up” and we were to do a mani inspired by what we wanted to be as kids, and/or what our children want to be when they grow up. Since Madeline is 18 months old and only says about 10 words, I couldn’t QUITE decipher what her 30 year plan was, so instead I did my nails based on what I wanted to be when I grew up. Let’s see if you can guess.
I Wanted To Be A…
Nah, I’m just kidding, but I did want to be an elementary teacher. I even have my license and Master’s degree. I am fortunate enough to stay home with my daughter for now, but I hope in the future I can do something with my degree. I should make some teacher-y stuff for Faux Farmhouse. That would be rather appropriate!
For these nails I used Essence Little Miss Sunrise for the yellow, OPI Pink Friday for the pink eraser and Essie No Place Like Chrome for the metal part. I made sure to not topcoat my metallic stripe to give it a more realistic metal finish, and I added matte topcoat to the pink erasers because, well, it was the right thing to do. 😉
How do you like my pencil nails? I know they’re not the most unique idea, but I do think they’re cute and fitting. This was a hard prompt. What do you want to be when you grow up? Check out my Instagram account Nicole_423 for all of the other ladies’ nails. As always, thank you all for reading and commenting and till next time- Happy Polishing!
I sort of snorted at the 30 year plan and “pencil” parts, lol.
These are SO CUTE! Well done!
Oh, and due to the title of the post, I now have that Pussycat Dolls song (I think it’s them…idk) in my head. Thank you for that. :p
Crappppp now thanks to your comment I have “dontcha wish your girlfriend was HOT like me? Donchaaaaa? Donchaaa?”
Thank you!!! I’ll start working w Madeline on her plan. We already started training her for next year’s Easter egg hunt so figuring out her career is next I suppose. 😉
I cannot love this enough!!!
These are awesome– they look exactly like those No.2 pencils for school. Great job!
Thank you!! I was quite proud of my multiple finishes. 😉
omg i wanted to be a pencil too ! lol
Keepin it sharp since 84.
I think you did a GREAT job!
When I was a wee wee tot, I wanted to be a dancer.
And now you like to belly dance. Living the dream. 🙂
