My Boyfriend: The Artiste

Disclaimer: I beg of you, DO NOT judge the content of my blog based on this post alone. I promise the rest of my blog is MUCH BETTER. I should also give fair warning that the images you are about to see may disturb some readers. Proceed with caution...

So a little while ago my boyfriend suggested that he should paint my nails. I was shocked. Yes, I'm happy that he's supportive of my...errr....'habits'...but it came as a complete surprise to me that he would actually want to paint my nails. But I figured why not? We could wait until we were on holidays because then I wouldn't have to leave the house with what I could only imagine would be a disaster on my nails, and it would be an interesting couples activity to try. I figured how well he did would also be a good indication of how he actually feels about me haha.

I think from this point on I'll just let the photos do the talking. *Note* I didn't bother to do any clean up, I wanted to show the manicure's full effect :p

Left hand

Right hand (note the 'feature nail' on my index finger)

Since we did this at his house, I obviously couldn't bring my 100+ polish collection with me, so I asked him what colours he wanted to use. He said blue and purple, so I brought about 3 different shades of each with me, but apparently I didn't bring what he wanted (last I checked males couldn't see as many shades as females anyway). He ended up picking China Glaze's 'Frostbite' as a base and used  OPI's 'Plugged-In Plum' for his designs on top. He then finished with a coat of Essie's 'Golden Nuggets'.

To be honest, I'm not really sure what to make of this experience. It's not quite as disastrous as I had imagined, I had thought he would turn all evil on me and totally massacre my nails. I think he was either feeling lazy, or just playing it safe. Either way, I won't be turning to him for creative guidance anytime soon :p

I'm off to soak my nails in a giant barrel of remover now. You can expect a decent post from me tomorrow night as long as the weather is sunny in the morning so I can take photos before I head to work.


  1. Hahaha, it's like he got bored by the second hand. :P But the kitty one is actually quite cute. Amusing post.

    1. Lol thanks. He actually admitted to me afterwards that he has no idea how I have the patience to do my nails because he got bored after one hand!

  2. Give him props for drawing a nice cat!

    1. Lol I'll have to let him know that everyone loves the cat. He'll be so proud haha


Love it? Hate it? I want to hear about it!
Have questions? Ask away!

Please note though that I will delete comments that aren't relevant (*cough* self-promotion *cough*). Thanks for understanding :)
