Nerds for President!

8:50 AM Laura 10 Comments

Okay. I'm having a bit of a Napoleon Dynamite moment here. I entered in Leslie's (of Nail Polish Art Addiction) nail art contest. The challenge was to do a manicure inspired by food, and I chose to do Nerds (the Wonka kind, not the kind that get wedgies) because they have a lot of personality. So here's the mani I submitted!

 Starting at thumb and going clockwise: superhero nerd, skateboarding nerd, nerd with propeller cap, lazy nerd bouncing beach ball, and nerd catching frisbee.

Aaand another view of superhero nerd because he's my favorite (don't tell the others!)

I had a step-by-step tutorial, but that's on my home computer so I'll have to put that up later. This was my very first attempt at completely freehand nail art, and it was really nerve-wracking! I know they're not perfect, but hey, they're recognizable, and I think they're pretty darn cute!

Okay, back to Napoleon Dynamite. Basically, I'm Pedro, and you're Napoleon. I need you to mercilessly lobby for people to vote for me. Tell your friends, tell your family, tell random people on the street!

Okay, okay, there are a TON of other people entered in the contest, and I know you might not think mine deserves a vote. If you truly believe that my Nerds are stupid and lame, then don't vote for me. I understand. (What's that you say? Am I trying to make you feel guilty? I would never do such a thing...)

BUT, I would REALLY appreciate it if I could get even a few votes. I am so bad at drawing things you don't even know. I think my depth perception or something is broken, because whenever I try to draw something it turns out all weird and out of proportion. Anyway, so I was really happy with how these guys turned out, and I'm hoping you like them too!

So... if you would like to vote for me, just go here, scroll aaaalll the way to the bottom, and vote for me :) (I'm number 9).

Okay. I feel really awkward asking you guys to vote for me because I don't like to push myself on people. So. Yeah. I would appreciate your vote if you think I deserve it, but if there's someone else you want to vote for, I understand.

And. Yeah. I guess that's it. If you vote for me, thank you so much. If you don't, I guess that's okay too (but my heart will be broken and it will be all your fault and how will you live with yourself then, huh?). Yep. Totally okay.
