Recipe to Ruin a Manicure

Monday, August 23, 2010
First, chip a nail or two toting heavy bags of art supplies to "Trust the Mess" with Sabrina Ward Harrison, Christine Mason Miller and sixteen other brave & soulful beauties.



Then sand off polish while prepping books for play....



Pick gesso from beneath your nails while listening and lounging to Sabrina's poetic words....



Dip whole hands into a rainbow of colors....



Proceed to gunking up fingers while glueing random delicious bits . . .



Finish by washing hands roughly with a scrub brush and harsh soap.....OR not.

Update: Swirly Girl managed to capture the magic of the weekend better than I will ever. See her blog post here.

And the beautiful Mindy of Wish Studio had this to say.....

Christen says what I could not (here).
