Why I Hate YouTube

Sigh...okay. I don't really hate YouTube, but it really gives me far too many ideas.
tonight, because i needed something blue on my fingertips for a new book, I painted my nails in a graduated blue-purple pattern with sparkles.
I should have been writing. Sigh...
At this point I am simply thanking my stars that I don't have the nail stamps yet. Those will be here in a month.
The nails are powder blue with a medium blue to dark purple going across them like oncoming twilight. Just the perfect thing to keep the character's skin tone in mind during Seal the Deal.

  1. I have to admit...those are pretty! I can't see the sparkles though in pic. Do the stamps have silver stars? That would look really pretty too!
    Getting into character seems a lot like getting to play dress up. ;) Fun!

  2. Yup. Dressup is my favourite part of writing. The smallest thing, bracelets, earrings, nail polish, can remind me of a point in the character's personality and keep me focused.
    I won't know which stamps I get until they arrive...ahem...but i ordered a fairly large set so chances are good stars and snowflakes will ensue.
