This is a silly blog based on a silly idea, but I figured someone else might find my silliness entertaining.
The idea: Since I have a disturbingly large (and growing) nail polish collection as well as a love of ancient Egypt, I would start a nail blog that features manicures with an Egyptian deity theme. I will use both the Egyptian names of the deities as well as the more commonly-known Hellenized names for clarity. I am not a nail professional, just a nerd who likes painting her nails several times a week as a form of stress relief.
Still with me? All right. Apologies for this picture -- I need a new charger for my real camera, so I used my phone. Additionally, I wasn't planning to take pictures of this at first, so there's some mess around the cuticle from my previous manicure.
This design is inspired by Wesir (Osiris). I paired a creamy greyish green with a shimmery black. The picture doesn't really do the green justice -- it really is a lovely, gentle color without being dull or pastel. Overall, it's kind of a hopeful, regrowth kind of Wesir... very appropriate for this time of year.
