POLISH DAYS: to boldly go

i audibly squealed when i read the theme for this month's polish days- a nod to star trek?? i'm so in :P. i don't know what has happened to me, but i used to be the girliest, prissiest person ever. i hated sci-fi. and then. . . . i married a nerd :). he's made me watch twin peaks, battlestar gallactica, and most recently, the original star trek series. i guess he's successfully converted me, because now i love star trek lol. it's so campy, hilarious, and weirdly addictive. how's that for compromise in marriage? :)

 green: 2 coats sinful happy ending
blue: 1 coat sally hansen xtreme wear pacific blue
yellow: 2 coats china glaze kalahari kiss
red: 1 coat wet 'n wild wild shine red red
gold: 1 coat revlon gold coin
black: fine-tipped permanent marker

this nail-polisher decided to go where she's never been before and make nails stickers! apparently, i'm terrible at free-handing on my actual nail, but i did surprisingly better on a flat surface trying to make stickers. i used this tutorial to paint gold metallic blobs on a ziploc bag, then used a fine-tipped black permanent marker to draw on star trek emblems. i had to make a zillion to end up with a handful of decent ones lol.

want me to prove that i'm a fully-converted nerd now? my husband and i went out to see the new star trek movie a couple of weeks ago, and this is what i wore:

it's hard to tell from the picture, but i was wearing crazy winged-out eyeliner and a braided updo like they used to do in the wonderful original series from the 60s. too much fun :).

i really loved my star trek nails, but unfortunately, they were not build for longevity. . . . even though the marker i used said it was "permanent", my top coat kept smudging it, so i decided to not seal the stickers with top coat, which meant that they kept peeling and falling off, until they finally disappeared :S. so much work for like 12 hours of wear lol. oh, well, it was fun while it lasted!
