Waterworks Mani feat. Brouwerij West’s Dog Ate My Homework Blackberry Saison
Did you guys miss me? I missed the hell out of you. Sorry for the extra long delay in posting but I hope this mani will make you forgive me.
NAILS: Ya know, this label looks deceptively easy to reproduce. Don’t let those adorable elephants fool you, it is not. After an epic fail my first time around, I was thankfully able to figure out how I could make this mani happen without going insane. I painted all my nails white at the base and then mixed the blue and purple colors together with acrylic paint. The only tool I used was my tiniest dotting tool (tip the size of a ballpoint pen) and the rest is history:
You have to check out the label artist’s website, btw. He has some awesomely adorable stuff going on there: http://www.thefloatingworld.net/ (Note: DO NOT make the mistake of going to thefloatingworld.com, especially if you’re at work…)
As you may have noticed, I’ve stopped including step-by-step instructions for manis, but if anyone ever wants to know anything about a mani I do, feel free to message me and I’d be glad to chat!
ALE: I stopped by Bierkraft in Park Slope on my way home from work and while I was ordering one of their delicious sandwiches, I saw an empty bottle of Dog Ate My Homework on the counter and it was love at first site.
LOOK AT THAT COLOR. It’s so pretty. Rarely do I have a beautiful label AND a beautiful beer. The photo doesn’t do it justice. The head is a really lovely pink-purple color. I’m not a fan of sweet, fruity beers and my first sip made me wonder if I’d be able to finish the bottle but after it warmed a bit I really got into it. The sweet blackberries are evened out by the crisp sourness of the saison style. I’d definitely have this beer again after a Spring or Summer meal.
Have you seen a sweet label lately? Give me suggestions for my next mani in the comments!
