You May Delay, But Time Will Not. – Ben Franklin

Being that yesterday marked the end of Daylight Savings Time, I felt it fitting to do clocks for today’s design. This was a quick design because go figure, I didn’t have a lot of time for it… haha. I had a busy day that included cleaning the apartment (with Rafik’s help- he’s so wonderful) reorganizing polish stuffs, getting a pea sized chunk of glass stuck in my foot (ow), having said pea sized glass chunk taken out which was really painful (double ow), updating swap items and setting up new swaps, getting lots of school work done, and spending time with Rafik and Kitties. Whew, even though I “gained” an extra hour, I’m pooped and now its time for the clocks…

Tick Tock Tick Tock
For this manicure, I started out with one coat of Color Club’s Smooth Operator as a base. I then used China Glaze Frosty, Illamasqua’s Boosh, CQ’s Tahitian Green, CQ’s Gem Green, and Color Club High Society as bases (two coats on all except for Boosh and High Society, which only needed one). For the thumb, I used boosh, Zoya America, and China Glaze Snow. For the index finger, I layered America over Snow. For the last three I used Boosh and Snow for details, and on the pinky I sponged on some Charity Ball and Bess Dressed list before the details. I topped off with one coat of Color Club’s Speedy and wham bam thank you ma’am I was done.
I just want to say a quick blurb about CQ and then I’ll get out of your hair. I love the formula, I love the shades, I love the price. I’m especially in love with Gem Green because its so shimmery that its almost holographic. I will do a swatch of it in the near future for you because its so spectacular. And yeah, under $2? I’m game. The picture doesn’t show ANY of its beauty.
Also just want to blurb about Boosh again- I’m so in love with this black. I save it for special occasions (not nail art, just full black nails) because I don’t want to waste it! I used it here because I grabbed the first black I saw, and I was reunited with that lusty, warm feeling in my stomach after using it.
Okay. Done. PS, nail art contest is ending Friday, you’re running out of TIME! :-)

  1. :-) I've already done some fall nails, but its practically winter here so as soon as my nail art contest ends, I'll be doing all sorts of winter designs. I just don't want to take all of my readers ideas and do them first.

  2. Hi, Tara!

    This nail art just reminded me that I don't have a clock here in my room! How weird is that, right? I just rely on my computer's clock and my phone's.

    I love the base color on your middle finger. Is that the CQ?

  3. looks wonderful! you must have the steadiest hands in the world O.O I looove how in the thumb, there's a teensy black line around the arm of the clock. I'm amazed each and every time I look at your designs. ♥

  4. I am puting your work on my facebook and never deleting. I am never going to put anything on my facebook wall ever again. Your work is priceless.
