I've been enjoying my holidays - Christmas was fabulous, lots of good food (3 turkey dinners) and quality time with family and friends. I'm a little sad it's over, I wish the let down from Christmas lasted as long as the build up TO Christmas. Think about it, folks get into the Christmas spirit at least a month in advance, yet after you've done all your dinners and opened all your presents, it's just.....over. Our big family gathering is on Boxing Day, so it prolongs the spirit for at least one more day and my family was still around until a couple of days after, so there was a little bit of a gradual let down. I guess I'm feeling it more this year because I'm still on holidays for another week and wish it was filled with more turkey dinners and family!!
I've been holding on to this mani for a couple of weeks now, I'm really in love with how this turned out and wanted to save it for something special. This was inspired by my buddy Becca's from Nail Narcotics!, beautiful mani dedicated to her favorite nail blogger - ME (lol) - done completely with her winnings from my EPIC 100 Follower Giveaway - you can see her gorgeous mani here. I loved that she did a special mani for me and I loved the idea of the acronym NGN for my blog.
I started out with a neon saran wrap mani and once I was done I realized it totally reminded me of the background of my blog so I decided to add my acronym NGN in my best attempt at graffiti!! I could never recreate this on paper, I've always wanted to be good at graffiti, but I just don't have the knack for it. I had to do a little research for this, I used a ton of graffiti generators and font samples before I found something I could actually recreate. I think this turned out pretty darn good for first attempt at graffiti!
Happy New Year everyone - wishing you all the very best for 2013!
