Make every week Fleet Week. My official equation is Navy + Nude + Glam = Good Times
I think I’ve covered off on my extreme fondness for Nautical and Sailor themed talon shenanigans; I do feel though, that I need to break-up the craziness of my last post with a wearable look… Then strap in B!tch, it’s straight back to INSANITY and insanely anti-weariable, OTT nails – just like the Doctor prescribed – a high dose of Fabulousness. Also, apologies for my
abstinence absence, I’ve been a sick Raptor… albiet a naughty Raptor. Happy to be back!
As above, I heart the colour Navy but still have a slight distrust for the uniformed version of Navy. You know the type; nice when sober, gropey when pickled? And No, before you get into me for discriminating against uniformed non-civilians… it’s not due to anything other than being the spawnling of overprotective/reflective former Navy personnel.
Moving on! I’m an Aussie and I love the water… I like to drink it, shower in it, Swim in it. Sometimes the reverse – joking. That’s yucky, Darlings. There is, however, a certain amount of terror experienced when you’re a spawnling and go to the beach; especially after watching films like Jaws – my somewhat evil older spawn-mates suggestion. I couldn’t get in the water.
Daddy-Raptor saw my apprehension and approached me from the surf, to my lonely post on the shore and told me… “Don’t worry, Bub. It can sense you in the water before you’ll even see it…” The. Most. Perfectly. Inappropriately. Sage. Advice. Ever. Seriously, apparently some sharks can smell/taste stuff 3 mile/5 kilometres away. WTF, Stuff of nightmares. Inspirationally, I did get into the water… more so because if Sharks can taste me in the water, they can also taste everyone else in my nest and given how many of us there is… the odds are fairly good. And we all also own a hell of a lot of black clothes; so the following social events won’t be as stressful as fishing out my former-fellow-spawnlings chum out of the water. Silver lining.
Get this look, nude opaque all your talons but one – that’s the shimmer navy. Top pinky and thumb with a balanced collection of AB rhinestones, put some shimmer gold tome swirls onto the pointer and fore. Finish the feature talon, with a slightly eclipsed series of rectangular studs. Finished.
Love this look – was feeling a little TOO MUCH following my last look – I needed a break. It’s not you. Its me. And by that, I mean sorry I’ve been away.
So what you think, Darling?
Share your experiences with rude, nude, navy – any funny stories? I’ll even let you use the “Sea” word… see what I did their, Ha. Sailor Pun.
