Stay a while and listen.

I blame Diablo 2 for sucking up all my free time. I’ve been so pumped for Diablo 3 that I’ve basically ignored every other video game and thrown myself back into making the best Meteorb Sorceress ever.

I’m a terrible pack rat in real life, but especially in game. I build up loads and loads of runes. I don’t care how crappy they are, I must have them all. It’s the weirdest obsession. I have to keep reminding myself that it takes like 14 trillion El runes to make a Zod so it’s not even worth keeping the small stuff. Yet I continue to let my inventory fill.

The base color is Cemented from Sally Hansen Hard as Nails and the black detailing is Liquid Leather from China Glaze. The base isn’t as accurate of a color as I’d like but it did the trick. Also, I’m cringing at my terrible cuticles. Thanks a lot, winter.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go do a few dozen more Countess runs.

Since I’ve done so many nail designs in the past that I (obviously) haven’t put up yet, I’m going to slowly but surely post them. I did this one about a month ago:

I love Star Trek. Like, really really love Star Trek. So naturally, I had to honor the epicness with a manicure. I tried to get decent accuracy with matching the proper logo/uniform colors but it ended up a bit smudgier than I anticipated. Next time I attempt this, I’ll probably try and get the Enterprise on my thumbnail instead of just the stars… but that’s easier said than done.

I’ll trade you two wheat for a brick

I figured I’d start off this blog with one of my favorite designs I’ve ever done. It’s my favorite partly because I love Catan, and partly because Wil Wheaton retweeted it and said it was awesome. My Trekkie heart is still fluttering madly.

Settlers of Catan is basically the best board game that has ever existed. It’s infuriating and leaves me hating myself and my friends afterwards, because things get very personal very fast. It’s amazing. So what better game to pay tribute to?

To get this manicure, I had to mix basically every color myself, minus the base color. The base colors are:

Yellow: Sun Sational from Ulta

Light green: Green with Envy from Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear

Dark green: Holly-day from China Glaze

Red: Brownstone from China Glaze

Gray: Steely Gaze from Sally Hansen Hard as Nails

Nude: Stonewall from Sally Hansen Hard as Nail
