You So Cheesy Nails Did

I LOVE CHEESE. Seriously its bad. I'm actually a self-described cheese snob. I really love going to cheese mongers and saying "I'm looking for something smokey but light on the palate." LOL I'm telling you - complete snob. But Ben is just as bad if not worse. He actually bought a device called a girolle that is specifically only for one type of cheese called Tete de Moine and is used to make cheese flowers like the ones pictured. Now, they're delicious, but this little gizmo was like $80! And really, how many times do you use it. He says it will pay for itself...but add $40 for a half wheel of Tete on to that each time...yea, that can add up. However, one cheese that I LOVE and wont hurt your wallet - Guinness Cheese. Its literally marbled with Guinness beer and is AMAZING.

Alright I can talk about cheese all day obviously...so here are the nails. What I did was mix Billy Burning Hot with a un-labled nude to get a bit of a softer orange. Then I painted out little swiss cheese cut outs with a brush and nail polish remover. The mouse grey is China Glaze Liquid Leather mixed with Sally Hansen French White and some nail art pens for the accents.

Super apologies for the blurry pics. I must have taken 30 on macro and NONE were coming out for some reason so these were literally the best of the bunch! I'll try again tomorrow and see if my hands shake less or something LOL.

And by the way - I believe I just hit over 300 followers! WHOOT! That's so amazing - thanks so much to all of you who follow my blog! I truly appreciate it!!! So I guess I'll have to devise some sort of giveaway! Look for that coming up :)

Haa haa haaa! Ben likes to cut the cheese...and not just ANY cheese. ;)

The nail art is precious!

These are adorable! I love how creative you were with the "holes" instead of just painting them on. And those mice are too cute!

As a fellow cheese lover (though not as much as you) I could listen to you talk about cheese forever. Mmm...now I want some!
