Sea my Anemone…

Very Punny. Very, VERY Punny.

Sea anemones are like puns… you need to build up a tolerance. I suggest you start with some classic British comedies – that’d do it.

I know short talons get readers… slightly crabby. They’re too short, but there’s no need to be salty.

Ok, done with puns. Phew. We got through it together. These talons though.

I adore teal and navy together, my college uniform was teal and navy. We even had unisex uniforms… very progressive for such a backwards institution. I mean, they didn’t allow nails or makeup… not even glitter. What is that?!

Get the look, navy colour base on all talons but the feature – that one is teal. Layer on a white base, spotting in your desired pattern. Layer on fluro yellow and then pink. Voila.

Love this look. Its practical and functional – but fierce as … not hell. As the abyss. The crushing abyss. I love the sea. I love these talons. I do not like Dolphins, but that my Darlings – is a story for another time.

I'm outta here, till next time.

Back to somewhat basics… well basic for me. Bright. Glitter. Studded Deliciousness. I love me some purple. I love me some glitter. I love me some snazzy charms!

I’ve been feeling a little blue/purple, as I’ve had one HELL of a cold… cannot. stop. coughing. These make me feel better. The gold charms, help – but CAN get snagged in one’s hair.

Legit though; I’m coughing like the worst cinnamon challenge contender ever. It’s all the benefits of Pilates, I feel my core – seriously – engaged… but none of the benefits of a workout. It just hurts. Crampy. Maybe I should just sleep more…

Get the look – all talons but feature bright purple, finished with gold triangles and rectangles forming pwettiful bows. Bow them. Bow all of them. Feature talon is silver holo-glitter.

When I can, I shall fight back. I shall be victorious! The last laugh will be mine.

Share your experiences with combating cold and flu. Was it an EPIC show down, or more of a … slow decline … into sleeping.

Neon Turtle Shell

Appropriate for the more fashion adventurous Mutant Ninja Turtle/Monarch. Radical.

I keep thinking that every time I use the term – Radical –  I’m going to be picked up for suspicious activity… especially when Elisabeth is mentioned, totally on first name basis in my head. Happy Birthday Lizzie… even though it’s not really you birthday. #Whateves!

If and this is a BIG IF I go offline for a prolonged period… I’ve been arrested. I’ve also spent more money on fabulous talons… and I obviously neglected my legal representation budget. Ha! #Priorities #Adulting

I really wouldn’t survive in prison… mostly because of my extensive beauty regime. Legit, it makes Saddam look reasonable.

That and I am quite survivally challenged AND… I am in fact a Raptor. Depending on your beliefs, I died out a millennia ago/never existed.

Get the look – feature talon is many, many layers of clear… with embedded aluminium foil (dat shine, y’all) and swirled black polish. Swirl it, girl. Swirl. Finish with sheer lime and topcoat. All other talons, white opaque base… than layer up with neon lime, each with a black swirl. Layer, layer and you’re done!

I needed some radically bright colour to scare away the Winter blues… or greys. So much grey. Speaking of greys… Queen Elizabeth is the longest serving Monarch and is 90. Le Cray Cray Grey GRAY. To confirm th ONLY Queen I bow to, is RuPual.

You'll never take me alive.

UNHAND ME PEASANT!  You’ll never take me alive. 

So what you think, Darling?

Share your experiences with being a somewhat radical, with somewhat ironic appreciation of the English Monarch. Only crowns I’m interested in, are the ones featured in root canal videos! 

I’m Back and Glittery-AS-EVER! 

Allo Again my Darlings.

Did you miss me? Because I missed you. Apologies for my absence; a cross breed between being a tad under the weather… compounded by writers block. I had some medication and alphabet fibre… so here we are.

Now to celebrate with glitter and matte. On the subject of Gold Glitter – very important and relevant – I would follow the Olympics… but Rose Gold > Gold. If the athletes were to win Rose Gold medals, I could emotionally invest in their journey… but as is… MEH.

Not that I don’t appreciate those Little-Smegols’ obsession with … chasing the Gold. But really .. I have no comparison… I train to… I don’t know… to go to a rib joint. And that isn’t a euphemism.

Get the look – all white talons, fully opaque of course. Matte coat the ring, middle and index. Finish the ring feature with a moon French tip. Index and Middle finger with gold glitter geometric line work – finish the line work with gloss top coat. Finish the thumb and pinky talon with gloss top coat. Donzo.

What do you think my Darlings… Or should I say… My preciousesssssWin the Gold. The Rose Gold. 

My Preciouses! *notices evidence is being taken*

My Preciouses… somewhat of a sore loser *notices evidence is being taken* Act natural. Remember, you are a graceful loser.

So what you think, Darling?

Share your experiences with being a competitive Diva… how many B^&%#es did you scalp for a slight advantage. I have. I had to leave the country… this country was luckily foreign.

Very short post, for some long a$$ talons – Rose gold gilded purple goodness… looks like the insides of the Vatican’s treasure catacombs… less mosaic… more colour.

Hump Days tend to be filled with office conspiracy theories, one of my favourite sports topics around the water cooler is … all the stuff the Vatican has hidden. “You know they’re just drowning in relics” – queue insane former Catholic rant form any number of victims colleagues in ear shot. Good. Clean. Sport.

I’m not saying that I do or don’t believe or repute/dispute, or whatever… I am still coming to terms with Pluto not being a planet. I’ve been in mourning for sometime and water cooler hunting chats entertain me.

Get the look – section off your talons (by eye) and lay on segmented layers of your three colours with varying widths; I used Khaki, Bright Purple and Rose Gold Glitter… because why the heck-knot (I’ve already been pinged for the Vatican stuff… now cooling it on the Blaspheme)! Use gold-holo nail strips to separate the colours out – wham, bam, thank you spam. Done.

Now, depending on what Hemishpere you’re on – go the bloody bed or have fun water cooler hunting. Other fun subjects are “Sustainable Hunting in Africa… Lion populations are just way too big” / “One Direction are superior to The Beatles” / “Cats are better than Children.” Discuss.

Share your experiences with getting nibbles at the water cooler… any good fishes hooked. Hopefully no ones right hooked you in the face. Be safe!  Hunt responsibly!
