Coffee Is My Sunshine Nail Art - Digit-al Dozen Geek Week

Hello. Have I mentioned I love coffee? You may have figured it out when I put a caffeine molecule on my nails yesterday. Well..it's not just that I love coffee, because I only have one cup a day, it's more that I'm a coffee geek. For real. The fact that I have at least 8 different machines in my house right now to brew up the beans qualifies me for this title, right? A coffee snob as well. Very particular about what bean gets ground in here every morning. My husband and I met actually through a shared love of this fine beverage and our first date was...you got it...a cappuccino date <3

So..you might even see more coffee love from me before this week is out. But today was inspired by the old fashion coffee ads. Hope I gave it a slightly antique feel with the colors I chose. I love how this turned out :)

 This started with 2 coats of Hard Candy Crush on Copper from their new Crushed Chromes collection. (I'll show this again with the other Crushed Chromes I received) Once it was dry I taped off my sections and added 2 coats of Nicole by OPI Alex by the Books

 A few photos of this before the mug went on because I liked it a lot. I think the contrast in colors and finishes does well together.

 I freehanded the mug with Nicole by OPI Totally in the Dark and the accents are with Nicole by OPI A Phil's Paradise.

Does it make you want to go get a cup of Joe? I sure do :P

Be well!

  4. Oh my, what a great mani, I love how you taped this is so artsy. I could never do that, need an extra dose of patience.
    I'm not very fan of how Americans drink coffee and that peculiar habit of flooding it with water, mixing it with all kind of flavoured beverages and tons of sugar. I, personally see a Starbucks store and run away :P
    I do like un bel ristretto though!

  9. I used to run a coffee shop so I can relate to your being a coffee snob. Anytime I go into a Starbucks I begin muttering to myself. Love this design!
