Just Another Mani Monday

It seems I have a little thing for national flag nails (see my favorite Americana Nails) as this week I’m proudly rocking the rising sun.

I’ve been dabbling with the use of paper reinforcements, which is what I used to create those spectacular red circles. It really is a weird thing to look at, but I like it. A lot.

The reason for this design was to commemorate a fancy spaghetti dinner that the CBF ladies and I threw with proceeds going toward tsunami relief in Sendai City, Japan. We called it “Pasta Mobsta” and was full of old-fashioned kids reminiscent of the early 20th century, all eating pasta and drinking cheap beer. All in the name of tsunami relief. It was rather glorious.

Now enjoy a series of photos from the night courtesy of the wonderful Chris Kwock and featuring the unlikely ladies who have become some my nearest and dearest friends.
