I Call It The Whale Tail Nail!

It would seem I have THE worst luck (or lack thereof) when it comes to camcorders. So I had trouble with the first one I was using which lead to me finally sucking it up and buying a new one a few months ago. Well as I was filming the answers for the Q and A today, the battery died and refused to recharge. When I took the cable out of the camera, the jack came with it so I now have a hole in the side of my camera! Hopefully I can return it to the store I got it from since it's faulty and I'll be back in the video business. Until then, you can watch the 'outtakes' from the 10 minutes of footage I managed to film before the camera's untimely death on YouTube here.

This manicure is very similar to the V-Gap manicure but I put a little twist on it (literally), turned it upside down and named it the Whale Tail Nail because rhyming words just sing to me like I'm 10 years old!



I used W7 Black as a base colour and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Brisk Blue which I inexplicably found in a bargain bucket in my local Original Factory Shop. The studs are the 2mm gold squares from Born Pretty Store here. Don't forget to use my code, SA5X31, for 10% off any order at BornPrettyStore.com!

  3. The whale tail? I'm definitely liking this (and cute rhyming names are always the best. Especially when they also have another slightly naughty meaning ahaha) and I'm gonna have to try it out. So cute!

  12. Wow, those are so well done! I have heard that a "whale tail" is when a girls thong is displayed above the waist band.

  20. i know its called whale tail but for some reason it reminds me of penguins. i love this! its simple yet very creative and abstract. great job! idk if you know this but "whale tail" is when someone is wearing a thong and you can see it peek out of their trousers, thusly named "whale tail." it may be unintentional but its so clever!!!

  21. This is lovely! Must try as soon as I get some studs :)
