French manicure on pointy claws + snake update.

Hey there!

How is your weekend going? I hope you've been able to lay down and relax... I tried my best and I think I overdid it because right now as I am typing I can't figure out whether or not I am fully awake.  Therefore please forgive anything inappropriate that may make its entrance in this post.

Today's manicure, however, is very appropriate (as in conventional). Let aside the shape of my nails -that I can't get enough of-. A french manicure; what can I say in its favor? Let's just acknowledge it's become such a boring noun binomial lately. I am sure you've all seen it a million times and thought: (i) classy, or (ii) slutty. I don't know about you, but for me it all depends in how wide the french tip is.

This one feels a little different to me because of those pointy claws. It adds just a tinge of fiercyness (if that's even a word) to a classic, and I like that. I wore this to a meeting, all lawyered up, and expected the others to see in them a hint that I'm not your everyday lawyer. That there's more to me than just a suit and legalese. Have I succeeded? I will never know. What matters is that the hint was there for anyone to see.
For this I used two coats of Kiko Nude, freehanded the white tips and added one coat of Kiko French Baby Pink. Top coat & go!

Snake update: my new baby has been with me for nearly a month. Just let me tell you she's high maintenance ;) I'm busy taming her down, avoiding her bites and teaching her to eat thawed mice; it's proving hard and requires all my patience and care. But it'll all be worth it if I prevent her from becoming an 8ft monster... For now, she's just the cutest baby snake ever:
Due to her feisty attitude I'm thinking on naming her Furia (Fury, in Spanish). It sounds feminine yet something you wouldn't want to mess with. The Fury. Yay or nay?

Take care,

M.

  3. Furia is a great name for her!
    And OMG I looove your nails! *_* Just the other day I was thinking of doing a french mani again. Really, I don't even know when the last time was since I wore one O_O
    Your nail shape makes the mani very outstanding and I can't get enough of your nail shape as well! Hihi I'm sure you succeeded in showing that you're not just a plain lawyer but actually a snake tamer ^.~

  5. Furia is a perfect name - unless it has the effect that she takes after her name - you know the power of anticipation... ;)

  7. Your french mani is definitely classy, and I agree that the nail shape gives it an extra edge. :) Furia sounds like the perfect name, given her sassy nature. :)

  9. I love the pointy claws! Furia made me think of the movie "Chronicles of Riddick", the main character comes from a planet called Furia.
