A Story About A Fox

Evening Followers!

I'm proud to say that I have been accepted into the Gumleaf Mafia, hence the nifty new badge on my blog! Give it a click to go and check out some awesome Aussie bloggers! I feel proud to join them!

Today I wanted to do something that my boyfriend would like. He and I just spent three amazing weeks on holiday together and while on our trip we carried a little stuffed fox and took pictures of it with various landmarks (don't look at me like I am strange!)

Anyway today's manicure is an homage to that fox. His name is Hermes.

My boyfriend really likes foxes. When we were first dating he used to drive me home at midnight, after we finished work together, and if we spotted a fox he would always call out " There's Hermes!" It became kind of a thing with us and so for Christmas I bought him a little stuffed fox and we took him on our trip. So this manicure is done completely with nail polish and I painted the little foxes on my ring fingers with my nail art brushes. Here's a few shots of the actual Hermes with my nails!

He's a bit cute! Also can you tell that I've been lazy and put dots on almost every manicure I do? I think I need to branch out a bit!

And for good measure, I'm going to admit that I am not perfect. I'll show you my attempt at my left hand. My left hand is an homage to a second fox that I bought for me so that my boyfriend would have one and I would have the other. His name is Jerome.

I think he looks kinda cute!

  2. This fox is adorable Kate! It reminds me of Pablo from that children's cartoon (and now I'll be singing 'Run Pablo Run in the wind & the rain and the sun' all afternoon!)
