Larry Nail Art

So in the world of radio, it is not uncommon to work with someone for years and never meet them face to face. One of my colleagues works out of San Francisco, and I have worked with him for probably 6 years. We finally met today. He knows about my nail art and I promised I would do something fun for him. Here you go, Larry!

I used Larry's Facebook profile as my model. He's a bit of a weirdo, but then, so am I. And after I painted this, I realized that I chose one of my sister-in-law's favorite colors for the base. It wasn't a conscious decision. She passed away two years ago today, and she would probably have busted up laughing at this. :)

This is the third time I have painted the face of someone I know on my nails. Here is the first one of Sarah from Chalkboard Nails, and here is the second one of my little nephew (Erin's son) Will
