Hangman Nails

28 Jun

I know, I come up with some wacko ideas sometimes.  Inspiration strikes in the most random places sometimes.  Who am I to say no. 🙂

Playing hangman was always cause for excitement when I was a kid.  I remember teachers offering it as a reward if the class behaved or finished our assigned work.  If you were the one choosing the word, you’d always try to think of something that would stump your classmates.  A word that had an ‘x’ or a ‘q’ was usually a good one to shoot for.  If it was a particularly difficult word and there were many wrong guesses, the poor hanging man would end up with feet, fingers and even hair sometimes just to extend the game.

For this mani, I started with a base color of Sally Hansen White On.  It bubbled like mad!  I did put it on thick, so I’m sure it was operator error.  I started out using black acrylic paint for the spaces and Mr. Hangman and a couple of the letters then opted to use a fine tipped Sharpie for the rest.  Tiny letters are difficult with a brush.  I need a shorter, stiffer brush to be able to pull this off I think.

What do you think of my crazy mani?  Can anyone guess the phrase on my nails?

    Love it! Although, for you, I’d have thought it would read ‘polish artist” 😀
