I just finished nail school, and we had to do a final project. I am obsessed and constantly inspired by nature, cabinets of curiosities and the like so I decided to do a bug collection!

I used press on nails, nail polish, paper, thread, beads, rhinestones, caviar beads, pearl cabochons and lots and lots of Swarovski crystals!

I’ve had this idea for awhile and haven’t been able to do my nail designs in quite awhile so I figured I’d better try and get these done before Summer was over.

Unfortunately Summertime means insects. But, if you give them a chance and actually look at them without freaking out, some of them are quite beautiful.

So I did a Grasshopper, a Green Orchid Bee ( Because they really are beautiful, and IRIDESCENT.), A Bumble Bee, A Blue Cicada, and a pale moth.

I’m going to list them individually with their inspiration picture so you can see how beautiful they can be..

Hope you like them and sorry for not posting lately. I just haven’t had the time for my designs. I’ve missed it too too much and plan on many new designs in the very near future.

Bleed the Pigs

Who: ”Vicious” doesn’t even begin to describe the unholy racket this Nashville quartet brings crashing down upon the sanctified. Born in a basement and schooled in the blood-splattered doctrine of short, fast, and loud, Bleed the Pigs welds together metallic hardcore, caustic grind, acrid noise and cutthroat power-violence to create an incredibly aggressive and extreme music alloy. Though each member of this DIY outfit more than pulls their weight - (check out the bassist’s murderous grooves) - vocalist Kayla Phillips is the band’s not-so-secret weapon thanks to both her magnetic stage presence and the harsh, malignant howls and raw political tirades that pour forth from her corroded throat. It’s no surprise that Bleed the Pigs’ first cassette sold out instantly, and their second EP Overcompensations for Misery is already well on its way to disappearing. KIM KELLY

Where to Start: ”Supremacy” is a bass-heavy neck-snapper that screams by in under two manic minutes.
