Rhinestone Cowboy Blues

…bonus points if you can pair them with some swish suede shoes and a tasselled get up.

Ha, this look is more camp than a individual who camps under the stars, not saying camping cowboys can’t be fabulously camp… but you know – practicality. Camp overload leads to injuries, FACT. My nails get wrecked just gardening, let alone communing with nature – blek. I don’t do wide open spaces (lol), coming from an Aussie perspective… there’s an awful lot of things that want you dead

I’m more of a packhorse than a cowboy; meaning that when I leave the house, I’m carrying my U-Haul Handbag… dragging half my worldly possessions behind me – like a Hermit Crab, a super, super, shiny, social Hermit Crab.

Legit – I have more backpacks then handbags, although my handbags are designer and the packs are legit trekking variety – oil treated, rain membrane, gortex blah blah. Takes all types to combat stereotypes; talon endowed Raptor has an impractical taste in expensive accessories and practical zombie apocalypse equipment… *Gasp*

If I can survive an asteroid strike and the following Ice Age, I will survive some reanimated corpses (like pickled meat put any omnivore off?) and look $W@G to boot – I might invest in some Cowboy Boots now…

OK y’all. Start by wrangling (lol, puns) your thumb and feature talon and apply opaque neon blue, all other talons block out with a shimmer tone gold. Take your holo-geo-glitter and apply down the centre of the blue talons, almost like a snow-globe grouping formation with majority of the glitter on the tip of the nail. Shake it, make that Glitter swirl Gurl.

Cover the gold talons with a gold holographic top coat (I used my own Indie gel mix), the attach gold caviar, clear and blue rhinestones – I had a varying concentration of adornment for the different talon area, as in pinky doesn’t have 120% more bling than fore-talon. Y’all are done, but don’t *insert cowboy saying* I’m an Australian, we don’t do Cowboy slang!

Gold, Glitter and Neon – all the best ingredients for a wild night out… on the priarie. Or lam. Or whatever. Be wild and free, and pack a lot of things – you never know what you’ll need when the time comes!

Oh what’s this? This isn’t a tent, this is a TRAP! Oh dear God, why didn’t you warn me. Is this for the Zombies?!

Fabulous, x

So what you think, Darling?

Share your experiences with the great outdoors, practical packs, impractical accessories and of course glitter. Any funny stories? Raptors catching fire? Australian wildlife out to get you? How long till the emergency services got to you? Loose a leg? Just the tip?
