Eyes on the Back of my Hands

A few weeks ago during a yoga class, I found myself distracted by this tall bronze goddess practicing next to me. She must have been 5’ 9”, fresh back from a trip down south, with full eyebrows and strong limbs.

When I peeked over at her hands, I noticed she had the coolest manicure: black nails with blue evil eyes drawn on each fingernail. She accentuated her hands with tons of silver rings, many of which were adorned with turquoise gemstones. Her dark tan just made everything pop. I’ve never had nail art done before, since I usually do my nails myself and don’t really have the patience or the skill. But the next time I get a professional manicure, I might just have to try this out.

The above image is a visual rendition I attempted with watercolours (it came out pretty messy, I know). It definitely doesn’t do her justice, but I hope you get the idea.
