First of all, my nails have been all purple and zigzagged for about a week now. They're starting to chip and they didn't start out very perfect. But here's how they looked right after I finished them.
I used this technique. Next time, I think I'll make it easier on myself and do this two-color variation. The one thing I will definitely do differently next time is stick my tape pieces to the slippery side of some freezer paper before cutting them in zigzags, because the hardest part was definitely cutting the tape. I think it would be easier stuck to something that I can peel it off of without it losing its stickiness.
Onto the real post. Yesterday I went to the Ave to hang out with my best friend Jessica, who I hadn't seen since before Christmas. We didn't get stabbed or shot or robbed, but we did see a drug deal go down. All in all, it was a fun and successful adventure. First we went to get crepes for lunch. We wanted to try this new crepe place that just opened and got really great reviews on Yelp, but we found out that it's closed on Mondays : ( So we went to a different crepe place, which is located inside a sandwich shop and the crepes were so amazingly delicious and filling. I got one with strawberries, banana, whipped cream, and Nutella. It was a little bit difficult to eat with a plastic fork because of the way they serve them. I could have normally eaten it much like an ice cream cone, but I still can't bite with my front teeth, so I had to use a fork.
|Look at all the yummy fillings!|
|This should give you some idea of how ginormous this thing was.|
|I'm a sucker for tiers, ruffles, and fun prints.|
|Look how artsy this print is. I can't help but love it.|
And I couldn't resist wearing everything at the same time. I'm not going to lie, I would consider leaving the house and going out in public dressed like this. But I probably wouldn't. Probably...
|You wish you were this awesome. (complete with roommates' clutter in the back)|
So I ended up having a fun and successful adventure, and it was great being able to see my best friend.
