Nails du jour: Pirate

Ahoy there! (My ahoys are justified today!) Here are some pirate-y nails I did for my friend. You can tell it's my friend as we have very different hands!! They look an absolute mess - no idea why I hadn't tidied them up before photographing them but I think they were a cute idea nonetheless. I love pirates - I often long to run away to sea and when I go on Pirates of the Caribbean at Disney (haha), I get rather too excited. I even thought I might get married on the ride - but I can't think that there would be a single man in the world who would agree to that - unless I went all pirate-y myself and tied him up. My brain - dear oh dear!

Nails du jour: 1950s

Ahoy ahoy! I'm really trying to get back into blogging regularly (ish) but it's proving rather difficult as I've just moved house (from Kent to Sussex - a huge distance!) and I have to come to the local university (Hastings - haha) to use the internet - ahhh the joys of no internet connection at home. I am also in the midst of writing my dissertation (on fashion, what else?) and am trying desperately hard not to fill the entire thing with Adam and the Ants quotes a la 'I'm the dandy highwayman'. I'm already enough of a laughing stock at the Warwick history department without Mr Ant himself helping me to cause the entire faculty to burst into simultaneous laughter over my 'interesting' writing style! Anyhoo, back to the nails. I did these for the history ball (I seem historically obsessed, oh dear) which was 1950s themed. They look horribly untidy (I blame the camera) and the car is hi-de-ous but apart from that they were quite a success and went down a treat. Hope they float your (1950s) boat like they floated mine. Back to dissy town. Toodlepip darlings, ♥ Saskatoon
