Wednesday Wonder- They've nailed it

I have been so tired. I tried to write this last night. but I was nodding at the keyboard and had to come home and go to bed.
So today I try again.
I used to be known for my crazy fingernails, I loved having them done but mostly the massage to the hands and forearms that came with, for another 8$. Totally worth every penny in my book... then.
Challenges came up and that was one of the things I had to let go of.
Que sera, sera!!

Here is Doris Day belting that little ditty out.

My dad's favorite saying,which I truly love, is Caca pasa!! Put that in google translator. ;-D

Well anyway, back to the wonder.
Finger nail art has come a long way since my time with the crazy nails.
This photo comes from a great blog called "Fine art blog" which has not been updated since 2009. It is very disappointing, but there are so many awesome things to look at there.
All kinds of women on these.

I bet these ladies do not do polymer clay, LOL!

Polymer clay ruining your polish? Use the quick dry polishes or the gel coatings in the nail salon.
I do have a question though, how does she wipe?

LOL, sorry, I have always wondered. The things that entertain me now, LOL!!

These are beautiful, but how functional can they really be?
A few have things added to them, but a lot of them are just different types of gels.

These nails below are just pure talent and gels.

Notice, little hamburgers, tacos, pizza, and fries on these babies. I could work with these ;-D
This comes from another site that looks very interesting site "Just Cool Pics"

And for you Hello Kitty Fans.

Very interesting process too, check it out here
This gets my mind going, love that.
They have kits too. They are at the LA Fair in Pomona until October 3rd ;-D

And at
it seems I am totally up to date with my plain, no painted or gaudy nails... little did I know!
Shh, don't tell anyone, this is between you and I, they are painted black right now. It is only a couple of days until October. ;-D Right? I will just tell everyone I am practicing for the holiday.
Want to see some amazing stuff? Google "Nail Art photos".

Here is another great page from "Fashion Trends, Fashion Way Blog" just in case you are like me and have had to let all of your fashion mags go because of hard times, LOL!!
This will keep you up to snuff on everything.  Here you will find the fashion nail trends for 2011.

You know, now that I look at this, who would have thunk that a series of interesting challenges would have kept me from becoming a fashion faux pas? LOL!!

How can it get any better than that?


  1. Oh my gosh!!! These nails look so beautiful! Really great pieces of art! I bet these girls don't have to work hard and also not work with clay :-< hehehe! They also need a cellphone with big buttons i guess, cause the ones most people have now are with very tiny buttons or a touchscreen.
    I used to put all kinds of colors on my nails and i still have all colors of the rainbow nailpolishes,but it don't stay for long,cause i have to wash my hands a lot with the airdry clay that really sticks on your hands and nails :-(

  2. I am going to have to let my mother see this - she is always doing her nails. My nails get done with paint and glue!!

  3. I broke out in laughter at your query about "how one wipes!" I too have thought about that when I see these ladies with the Fu Man Chu nails!!! LOL

    I don't wear nail polish anymore, well, not since my college days which were a mere 6 years ago. When I began taking my studio courses, it was impossible to keep the polish on unless I wore surgical gloves and that wasn't going to happen, although, there were a couple of ladies who did. However, my toe nails are kept up with with wonderful colours of polishes!!

    Well, need to run, but thanks for the evening "hahahahaha!"


  4. How cool are these! I miss having long nails. They always seem to crack once they get to a length I like...figures! LOL Thanks for sharing!!!

  5. The nail stamp thingies are pretty awesome - you can buy the kits and such on Amazon, just search for Konad. I bought some and had a blast with them! But I also can't keep my nails painted what with claying and painting and gluing and such.


I am so glad you stopped by. Please leave your words of wisdom. I look forward to them and I so enjoy reading them all.
Live to love, Love to create, and create to connect.
