Fashionable Calligraphy

I've been artistically inclined for years, and that trend was greatly pampered by the time I spent in making illuminated scrolls to pass out as awards while I was in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism)

And I get to thinking - I liked that. It's a classic, and gorgeous example of art. And now I like atypical but also gorgeous things to do with my nails.

Why did it take me so long to combine the two?




Western Calligraphy, meet 21st Century nails.

  1. That is truly cool.
    Are those your real nails?! If so, can we PLEASE get busy on mine! I have none left now that I have stopped going to the mani/pedi salon.
    Have to cut down on my splurging ya know.

  2. Nope, these were done on fake ones and then temporarily put on for the picture - which is why they're not seated properly. But no one has mentioned it so I guess it's more obvious to me because I know what I'm looking for ;)

    But! I did get your gelish colors in. And we may have to learn together to do the rest of the mani-pedi system. Like the hot wax, all that jazz. You can teach your manicurist how it's done
