floral nails! inspired by... don cherry

Good morning!
Today I have for you my second themed Monday manicure for Polish-Aholics Anonymous.

This week's theme is floral.
As soon as I found out it was floral, I knew what I was doing. I've had this idea floating in my brain for a while.

The night of the Stanley Cup final, Don Cherry wore a particularly humorous suit.

Enlarge that baby to see it better. (And also to see (the cohost) Ron's face better.)
Hilarious. I knew as I saw this that night I would need to do nails inspired by the suit.
I got this picture from a blog called Don We Now Our Gay Apparel. The name is so perfect. Good blog. Check it out and see more of his funny suits if you're not familiar with Don Cherry and his ridiculousness.

So. Perfect time for a floral theme in Polish-Aholics.

Looking at them now, I'm not totally pleased.
I wanted to try freehand ones but I think stamped ones would have looked nicer! Oh well.

I used:
Sally Hansen Insta Dri - Whirlwind White
Wet N Wild Wild Shine - Tickled Pink
OPI - Dim Sum Plum
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Going Green

You might have noticed that my nails are really short.
I broke one last week.
But it's okay - I planned on cutting them down before I go away, so I don't have to worry about breaking them while hauling luggage back and forth or something.

In other news, the Canada Post mail strike is over! Mail should be resumed tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have a bunch of nail mail to show you guys soon!
