Hey Jude....come check out my nails!

Tonight I'm going to see Paul McCartney in concert with my super awesome boyfriend and I'm so excited! I wanted to do a manicure that would fit the occasion so I started brainstorming. To my surprise, boyfriend offered this wonderful idea: piano keys. How did I not think of that? Of course, with it being piano keys, I tried to make the lines as straight as possible...and compared to my usual "straight lines" these are pretty darn straight.

As always, I started off with a base coat of Orly Bonder. I followed that with three coats of China Glaze White on White (does anyone else use a lot of coats when they use white?) and Kiss Brush-On Nail Art Paint in black for the (only semi-crooked ;-) ) lines of the piano keys. I finished off with a blue accent line (Color Club Art Club in Sky Blue) and two coats of China Glaze Patent Leather Top Coat. I don't think it was the result I was looking's growing on me and it was still fun to try :)

Oh yeah! And I got new nail polishes with my sister yesterday! Orly Catch the Bouquet, China Glaze Heart of Africa and Secret Peri-Wink-Le, and Love & Beauty Dark Purple :D Hooray for new colors to play with!


  1. These nails look pretty good! They will go perfect for the concert tonight. At work, Janine was saying how excited she is to go tomorrow night. Have fun at the concert!! =)

  2. I got really excited when I saw there was a comment.....then it was you and I felt like in the movie Julie & Julia when Julie looks at her blog and goes "I HAVE A COMMENT I HAVE A's my mom" and then realizes it's from her mom. Eh, whatever, still exciting :) I have a comment!
