Psychedelic Mushrooms

I decided that the past few manis have been lacking.  So to soothe myself, I decided I needed a brown fest just for me.  I have also been teasing you about the new Cheeky Jumbo plates I got recently.  Today is the day to use them!

Now a little bit about my title.  I once watched a show about people who learn what is edible and what isn't in their backyard!  It was the craziest thing. People were just walking out to their yards with baskets and picking for a dinner salad.  All the while, warning that if you don't know what you're doing, don't try this at home!  This especially goes for mushrooms.  There are so many different varieties out there, some actually poisonous.  Some, will give you an LSD like trip.  This was the thought process behind today's mani.

Yes I am weird at times!  I just can't imagine eating salad made from my backyard, can you?

Now let's get on with the silly bottle shot.

This is Nails Inc Mount St and Fenchurch St.  In the background is the Cheeky plate I used.

I started with Mount St, a dark chocolate cream and an accent of Fenchurch, which is the color of buttery leather to me.  Here are the starting shots.

Oh how I love brown!!!  This makes me so happy.  Next I stamped with the opposite color using Cheeky Jumbo Plate 5, Musical Nails plate.  Why mushrooms are on a music plate I have no idea.  Here is this step.

As you can see, if you eat the wrong mushroom, the faces you will make on the accent nail!  I ended this with my funky and had a delicious brown fest just for me.

HAHA!! I think this is hilarious!  Mushrooms and funny faces!  Maybe I have a warped sense of humor.  Wait-come to think of it, I do!!!!!

Would you eat salad picked from your backyard?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
