Poppy Nail Tutorial

When I am sick, I am the biggest baby. I know the running joke is that men are whiny, pathetic sacks of shit when they are sick, but I give them a run for their money. The slightest cold and I maintain that I cannot do anything, but when that happens, I always pick one small, easy activity that I actually want to do so that I can start the ball rolling towards bigger tasks, like showering, or moving. My last sick day, the task was doing a quick manicure.

I know that manicure may not look like a quick polish job, but it really is.

All you need is:
Base color
Flower color
Green for the leaves
Toothpick (or dotting tool, if you're feelin' fancy)

It took me about ten minutes, because I was impatient and let nothing dry between coats, which I would not suggest, but it was very important that I finished as quickly as possible so I could go back to watching Law and Order SVU and feeling sorry for myself.

See, easy enough that even a 27 year old baby could do it. Find more easy nail tutorials here!
