Oh Frankie, You Have Me in Stitches!

Good Morning my Lovely readers!

I hope everyone is well today!

My poor Momma and Sister are VERY sick with the flu, so please be praying for a fast recovery!
Mom told me last night her fever was 103.4!  Not good!  and the stupid doc's office is being rather unhelpful!

Ok, on to Fun stuff!

Inspired by the Lovely April and Ashley of Concrete and Nail Polish, I thought I might try my hand at a Monster theme mani!  Frankenstein was my pick, but I decided to go kinda cartoony!

I started with 2 coats of China Glaze "In the Lime Light" a super nice neon green with a subtle blue shimmer!

Then I attacked it with my Black Stripe Rite!  Add a few bolts with China Glaze "Millennium" and here ya go!

The really really sad part of this is that about 2 minutes after I took this pic, I lightly touched my thumb to my lip to see if it was dry (I had to run to the store!) and it stuck to my lip!  My Seche apparently decided it was not gonna play nice on my thumb!  So I messed up poor Frank's face!  I was too tired (it was late) to redo it once I got home, So I just took it off  :(
I really liked this though!  I may have to wear a stitches mani before long!

Well my wonderful readers, That's all I have for you today!

I hope you have a fantastic day!

Great nail art! You are so acomplished with your brushes, I'm stunned! I'll snatch this idea from you 2014, when I might have the skill needed to do it! ;-)

I'll send my thoughts to your mother and sister, hoping for a quick recovery. With the flu there is not much doctors can do I'm afraid.

Stiletto said...


Aww Thanks hun!
The docs jerked her around for a day and a half before telling her to come in, so now it's too late for tamiflu. They coulda given her that!
In the past when one of us has been diagnosed with the flu, if another in the house starts with it, all we have to do is call and they call in the prescription right away! you gotta start Tamiflu within 48 hours of the first symptoms! Thats why we are frustrated!

PolishPig said...

That is true, they could have given her Tamiflu.

We don't use that much in Sweden, for severe risk patients, yes we do, and of course I don't know which risk group your mother's in.

In my (very limited) experience, even if you get Tamiflu in within the time span of 48h, it has a very limited effect, maybe reducing symtoms and duration a little, but by no means curing the decease.
In my opinion, the flue is cured by rest, warm fluids, hope and (if you are inclined to) prayers.

Just said a prayer for your mom and sis :) Also,I love Frank. He is the cutest monster I've ever seen!

Dani said...

That is so adorable. I love the colors and the stitches, but Franky really pulls it together, too bad you messed it up, this should be your Halloween mani! You should do the green with a coat of glow in the dark and then put the black Strip Rite over the top and it will glow his face in the dark :)

Lucy said...

I definitely will pray for both your sister and your Mother. I'm so sorry I haven't read any blogs for awhile and didn't know what was going on. That's a high fever and was pretty lousy of the doctors office not to help her. I hope you update soon so I know what's going on. Love your manicure. That's really inventive. Love it.

Stiletto said...

Thank you all for the well wishes and the sweet compliments! I just love you guys!
