Aliens Need Love Too

14 Feb

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!  This song came on the radio while I was driving around town the other day.  And this mani was born. Valentines_Aliens (11) WLcopyI’ve been laughing about it for days! It’s a little crazy, I know.  Aliens have hearts too ya know.  They’re probably celebrating Valentine’s Day today just like we are. 😉

Valentines_Aliens (12) WLcopyMy hubby got a good laugh out of it.  My daughter asked what they were, then said they were mad. Ha ha!

Valentines_Aliens (14) WLcopyMy base polish for this design was OPI DS Magic, my aliens are Sinful Colors Innocent and the pink heart is Milani Pink Hottie. Everything else was done with acrylics.  I topped it off with Chill Zone top coat.

Valentines_Aliens (21) WLcopyI think this is super cute and I’m giving myself a pat on the back for it. I think it’s safe to say this mani is one of a kind. I hope you’re all spending the day with people you love (romantically or otherwise). Happy Valentine’s Day!

Take Me To Your Leader

12 Oct

I had an irrational fear of aliens when I was young.  I blame Steven Spielberg.  E.T. scared the pants off me.  For years I would plead with my older sister to let me crawl in bed with her because I was afraid E.T. was coming to get me.  Even when I was an adolescent, I used to take the stairs from the basement two at a time because I was sure that E.T. with his squatty legs was right behind me.  My cousin had a small, stuffed E.T. doll and I hated going in her room because of it.  It stared at me.  Yes, irrational. That fear is gone.  Mostly because I can’t say that I believe in little green men (or wrinkled little brown ones either.)  I did think an alien mani was an appropriate design in honor of Halloween though.  These little guys were pretty easy to bring to life.  The hardest part was getting their eyeballs lined up.  I mostly succeeded.    The green is Sinful Colors Innocent.  I’m happy to report that with a sufficient base coat, it didn’t stain this time.  I used China Glaze Liquid Leather for the black details.

Are you a believer in alien life forms?  I am, to a point, but don’t believe they look anything like these guys do or that they are going to abduct and experiment on me.
