Meme Week: Ain't Nobody Got Time For That

Today is the last day in the Meme Week series. The theme of this challenge is inspired by Sweet Brown and the things that she (or anyone else) ain't got time for. If you want to see more of Sweet Brown including some funny videos check out Know Your Meme.
Today I wanted to try a manicure that I've been in love with since I first saw it. This one is by Sarah at Chalkboard Nails. Click here to see the original. I've never had time to recreate it though because lets be honest... ain't nobody got time (or patience) to sit there and individually place each piece of glitter for this mosaic style mani. Well, last night I blocked out the whole evening and made time. Here's the result:

I had some major bubbling issues with this one! Not only over the glitters, but for some reason on the plain nails as well. You can't really see it in person, but the camera really picks it up. This is one (probably too thick coat) of Wet n Wild Black Creme. I used glitter from Born Pretty which I placed individually using a toothpick dipped in clear polish. Horrible bubbles aside what do you think? Was it worth the time spent?


 That wraps up meme week. It's been fun and there has been some truly inspired meme art this week. I've really enjoyed seeing what everyone came up with. Check the links below to see what the other ladies ain't got time for today.



  1. I think it was worth it! I love the way mosaic manicures look; it's a shame it takes forever to do them!

  2. This does look totally cool but it's true, "Ain't nobody got time for that!" It's one reason why I stick to a three color maximum/one color per nail, lol. Thanks for the effort, though, it truly looks gorgeous!

  3. wow! No way would I have the patience for that!

  4. I've always wanted to try that but I agree with Cazzy, no patience. Looks great on you!

  5. Thanks for so many sweet comments! Surprisingly this didn't seem to take as long as some other things I've tried. I may even do it again someday.
