They're GRRRReat!

Good Morning Lovlies!

Sorry about that silly title, but I couldn't resist!

That's what I thought of when I saw these nails!

I started with 2 coats of Wet & Wild Inferno, the pretty orange from the Craze Collection.

After topping that with a coat of Seche, I went at it with my Konad stamper!
Black Special polish and M57, worked their magic, and here you have it!


I know that pattern is supposed to be Zebra, but I think it works for Tiger too!


And as a little added bonus picture I  thought I'd share an old pic of the car my father-in-law gave me.  I know I told you in the "alittle about me" post that my father-in-law had given me a car.  It's a 1963 Ford Fairlane, and it was my mother-in-laws pride and joy!  She loved the "Shaker" (it used to be called the "Shenandoah Shaker", years ago).  My Husband has said that he knows she would be ecstatic to know this was now my car, and that just means the world to me!  Below is a very old picture of her with the car.  The car does not have the "wing" on the back anymore, and that awesome big blown motor is no longer in it.  I will be building a new Big Block Ford motor for it.  Something mean enough to do some damage and put those pesky boys, who think girls can't possibly know anything about cars, in their places!  But not so mean that I can't take it out cruisin'.  I also plan a new paint scheme.  It will still be black, but I plan on taking it back old school with some pinstriping.  So here it is ladies, My car with my Mother-in-law:


What you can't tell from this photo is that my Mother-in-law was 4'10", and never weighed over 80lbs.  Which is even cuter since my Father-in-law is 6'2" and a solid 230 to 250.
They were adorable together!

How sweet of your father in law to give you a car that obviously has meaning.

How cute is your MIL! My Mom was only 4'11". She had a inch on your MIL! My Dad wasn't that tall. Love the car. I guess you can't have that engine anymore. Is it street legal with that engine in it?
