Rebola a Bola

Ah, Carmen Miranda! Siinä nainen, joka osasi liikkua platformeissa eikä pelännyt näyttäviä esiintymisasuja. Puhumattakaan siitä, miten vauhdikkaasti hän osasi lasketella bilabiaaliklusiileja niihin kompastumatta.

Ah, Carmen Miranda! If anyone knew how to move in platforms, and how to pull off a showy costume, she did. Not to mention she was remarkably handy with high speed strings of bilabial stops.



Tein joskus aiemmin kynnet, jotka ristin leikilläni Carmen Miranda-kynsiksi. Sillä kertaa yhtäläisyydet loppuivat lähinnä kimalteeseen ja hedelmänkuviin. Tällä kertaa menin hieman pidemmälle ja vaika hutiloinkin lopussa hieman, on lopputulos ainakin hauska.

Some time ago I made a manicure which I named “Carmen Miranda nails”, partly in jest. Those nails didn’t have much more in common with her, apart from fruits and glitter. This time I thought I’d make a proper effort and though I did get hasty towards the end, at least these nails are a lot of fun.

The colours are a very close match to the top Carmen Miranda is wearing, at least on my screen.

2 Sally Hansen polishes, one Stargazer glitter and one Essence glitter. Plus bottom and top coats.

Also fimo sticks, of course.

Might as well take advantage of my long nails, as long as I have them.
