I Have Been Inspired By Jello

Yep, you read that title correctly.  Sometimes I have a difficult time picking the next colour I wear on my nails, but this one came immediately to mind.  Because I have such a sweet tooth, I always have something around the house.  I've started buying jello because it satisfies my sweet craving without being TOO bad for me.  Of course the way I decided to make it this time isn't the best for me!  After dissolving the gelatin in hot water, instead of adding more water, I added vanilla ice cream.  It definitely changes the texture of the jello, and I love it for something different.  In an effort to make it healthier (haha, who am I kidding?!?), I sliced up a banana into it.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE fruit in jello, and I strongly encourage you to try it.  After mixing it all up and letting it sit in the fridge, all I could think of was my still untried bottle of Finger Paints Pop Rock Pink.  I decided to pull it out of my lacquer storage case and give it a shot.  It took three coats to no longer have any visible nail line.  This was particularly painful because it seemed as though each coat took an hour to dry on me.  I know I have had issues with the Finger Paints top coat not drying, so I wonder if this line just isn't the most compatible with me.  On to the pictures!

See what I mean!  

Picture out in the sun.  It isn't quite as orange as this picture suggests, and it definitely seemed darker on my nails than it did in the bottle.

What has inspired you lately?


  1. I love this color but it wore horribly on me. Chipped with and hour or two. I'm going to try it with a different top and base coat combo.

    1. I have very mixed feelings about the Finger Paints line in general. Some colours are fantastic- quick dry time and lasts for days, while others take forever to dry or chip easily. I hope that switching out top and base coats helps you because it really is such a lovely colour!
