I've got a totally fun tag today that is presented by the British Nail Bloggers (you know, the group responsible for British Nail Bloggers Get Rubbed and other such wacky tags). Charlie from Pocket Money Polishes had the idea to mutilate the "My Boyfriend Does My Makeup" tag into something that we nail bloggers could do for fun, and thus the "My Other Half (OT) Does My Nails" was born.
Initially, I was hesitant to even suggest it to Mr. Faff, because he rarely likes being anywhere near me when I'm doing my nails, as the smells affect his asthma, but it came up in conversation and he actually seemed interested! He decided he wanted to do Liverpool colors and dots, and here is the result:
I think he did a really great job for a noob! He has an... interesting technique for painting, where he kind of dabbed polish into the center, then came back in and sort of worked the edges in (he says this is how he paints walls, as well). I did manage to take some shots of him at work in between him yelling at me for "wiggling". He took it VERY seriously, LOL! I think he believes that the spouses are in some sort of competition or something, despite my assurances to the contrary.
|Mr. Faff wants to point out that it's amazing that he was able to paint my nails, having none of his own - but you aren't allowed to judge him for being a chewer, because then I will have to kicketh thy teeth in.|
|The edges were done only after all the centers were complete.|
|Very minimal cleanup was necessary, but he did that himself, too.|
|It took him a while to really get the hang of the dotting tool, but once he had it, he was off!|
|Here he's finishing up the last nail, feeling quite pleased with himself.|
I'm not sure exactly what Liverpool and dice have to do with one another, but he seemed to like the idea. He used Rimmel Double Decker Red as his base (this is a single coat, which is why it appears so orange on the nail) and LA Colors Shock for the dots.
Can't say how much fun HE had while painting my nails, but it was definitely entertaining for me to sit back and let him pamper me for a hot minute. I'm not saying he's ready to jump out of the nest just yet, but I think if he wanted to, and with a little instruction and practice, he could get pretty good!
I hope you guys enjoyed this fun little break from the norm. This was definitely a fun tag and I see now why it's so popular among the YouTubers. Sound off in the comments and let me know what you think!
Hope you're all having a great day, and be sure to check out all the other looks created by the other halves of the British Nail Bloggers!
