|For the base I used Orly's 'Liquid Vinyl'. For the first layer of fire, I used Orly's 'Poison Apple', the second layer, OPI's 'A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find', and the third layer, Nubar's 'Hot Yellow', all topped off with two coats of Seche Vite.|

The title is an ode to Chris Evans' character in Fantastic Four, whom I'll be checking out in Captain America this weekend (heeheehee, I'm sure the movie will be good too). I love a good movie, although I guess I should bring the hype down because those are the ones that tend to disappoint the most. Anyhoo, I guess I should be talking about smores as oppose to movies, my flames are more like campfires and not superheroes. There I go again with the food reference lol. Perhaps I should talk about food I know, I've never had a smore, only toasted marshmallows. I'm hoping next time we make it to the campsite we'll remember all the ingredients and make some traditional smores, over a campfire--ooo like the fire on my nails

Oh the joys of experiments, from creating some awesome chemical in chemistry class to trying out every hot pink til you find the one that's most visible from across the room, experiments are FUN! I still remember making a tie dye shirt my sophomore year in highschool (and yes I still have it) that was probably one of the best assignments in the class. (I also enjoyed the one where I wrote/sang a song about 'iron' from the chart of elements, our assignment was to 'present' an element and I got stuck with iron, so I had to think outside the box---embarrassing yet fun and I'd do it again) Tie-dyed items seem to be popping up everywhere and I've always wanted to create another shirt, so instead I painted my nails, at least the way I interpreted tie-dye. I'm gonna continue to perfect this one, I believe I will be able to capture tie-dye...I can do it! (in my Rob Schneider voice lol)

Blue half moons, purple horseshoes, pink hearts, pots of gold, and green clovers can only make you think of one thing....Lucky Charms! Yum! Theres nothing like a bland oat cereal spunked up with some colorful marshmallows. The marshmallows have changed up so much over the years I didn't know which ones I wanted, so I picked the ones I remembered the most as a kid--although I believe the pot of gold is a fairly new edition, but who doesn't want any gold, especially a pot full. Heehee. I've been itching to do this design and I'm not sure why (my favorite cereal is actually Cinnamon Toast Crunch) but I kept puttin it off because I was so intimidated by Lucky (the leprechaun). I don't wanna toot my own horn or anything but I'm very pleased with how he came out (toot toot). They're always after me lucky charms!

Happy Fourth of July!! Sure I love me some bbq but all I really care about is seeing the fireworks....whoot whoot-- oh and of course I'm excited about having the day off of work too...whoot whoot lol. Anyhow I figure what better way to celebrate than to do my nails YAY! So red, white, and blue with stars, stripes and fireworks (or at least my attempt at it heehee--I have time to work on that for next year). Me being all patriotic and stuff ...
