Noticed I was singing the ABC song while painting this, is that why I only know the song up to J?

Something about rainbows remind me of scales – the ABC’s, the 123′s, the Do-Re-Mi’s – and if those are building blocks to amazing reads and Kiss from a Rose‘s then what will my nails build today?! <Insert corny life lesson> Probably just a few snags on my tights and nail-marks on important documents. Reminds me of them Crayola markers that smell good but don’t taste good.

Quiz: Who’s holding the camera!!??    Awesome answers in upcoming post.

  20. Such a lovely mixture! Love your randomness.

  21. oh Lord. those are all chanel colors, aren’t they?
    just dying of jealousy here. no big deal.

  22. The style crusader

    Did you get that new camera that attaches over your face like goggles and takes a photo when you blink twice quickly? Awesome. Love the nails. Very cheery. xx

  23. Wow throwback! I used to love doing that to my nails in middle school. I just might have to try this again at some point. It’s nice that I can look back and ignore the massive amounts of awkward that were my teenage years and just remember the good things, like crayola nails!

  24. Great Blog!!

  28. Nothing beats sweety coloured nails!

  29. The taste of crayola markers? haha, i’m not so sure about that, but i do know that i now have the urge to paint my nails something other than the crimson they are right now

  30. It’s a colour sensation! I think you’re holding the camera between your teeth and pressing the button with your nose ;)

  31. so colorful nails! i love it!

  32. how steady are your hands?

    saw this on fffffound:

  33. Yes!!

  34. That is soooo pretty. Absolutely impossible to do on my own though methinks.

  35. I use a Canon 550D ;)

  36. Noooo, three are from Chanel!

  37. This reminds me of Tallulah from one of Cobra Snake’s photos.

  38. http://www.parkandcube.com/?p=109 This one perhaps ;)?

  39. I love Chanel nail polish although I find that two top coats are needed. This is a great color scheme but I know that is all that fandangled design knowledge.

  40. The smell of Crayola MARKERS? And everyone’s reminiscing about Crayola MARKERS? See this is when it hits me like a brick on the head: even tho I feel at times like your invisible twin, I really am a whole lot o’ older than you because *in my day* they were called CRAYONS. They were made of wax. They came in yellow and green boxes and there was even a little build in pencil sharpener so you could sharpen the points. And very tidy girls like me kept theirs in pristine conditions with the colours exactly in the order they came in.. DAMN that’s what I want for Christmas.

    Actually that’s what I should get you for your blirthday. If they even still exist.

    Just did a happy blogbirthday post. Hope you’re having a lovely night and not remotely online. xx

  41. p.s. fyi:

    http://www.crayola.com/colorcensus/history/chronology.cfm

    it was 64 colours *in my day* and my favourite colour was periwinkle. note that in 1962 they changed ‘flesh’ to ‘peach’ thanks to the Civil Rights Movement. A nice bit of trivial

  42. Cool nails!
