We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat


In honor of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel, I decided to do shark nails!! I think my friend Mike is gonna LOVE these...he is a HUGE shark nerd. For his birthday one year, my friend Jacquie and I made him a Shark Attack scene Jell-O Shot. In a 5 gallon fish tank. With 30 boxes of Jell-O...and LOTS and LOTS of booze. We had sharks in it, and gummy fish torn in half with streams of Kool-aid 'blood' seeping up through a crack we tore in the Jell-O after it set. (which took about 9,000 years) The shark on my middle finger is tearing a chunk out of my flesh, hence the blood. :-D

I used Milani Truth or Bare as a base, American Apparel Factory Grey for the grey part of the shark, Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud for the white part and the teeth, American Apparel Hassid for the eye and gills, then American Apparel Rose Bowl for the gums. For the blood, I used A Beautiful Life Poison. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.


The Jell-O Shot. :-D  The boys claimed that they had it for breakfast, and ate it for a week. :-D (we used a mix of blue jell-o and island pineapple jell-o to make the water color, then mixed with vodka, rum, and triple sec. :-D
