Dinosaur Nail Art and a Jurassic Park Look!

I know it's been a while but it's finally time for some more posts!  To start I'm sharing my dinosaur nail art!  I did this manicure right before the weekend that Jurassic Park 3D got released in theaters.  My husband and I were excited for it so I decided to paint my nails for the occasion.  This was the result:


At first I wasn't sure whether to paint a friendly dinosaur or a scary one. I ended up deciding on a friendly one on my fingernails and then on my thumbnail I attempted to paint dinosaur footprints.  I think my dinosaur ended up resembling Dinosaur Gertie from her ice cream stand at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Disney World.

There is also more dinosaur fun at DinoLand U.S.A. inside Animal Kingdom.  I like the the ride, 'Dinosaur,' that they have there and and all the cute dinosaurs in Chester and Hester's Dino-Rama.  They were in also in my mind when I painted my nails. (Can you tell I miss Disney World?)

In addition to painting my nails I made an attempt at "Disneybounding"!  For those of you not familiar with the term, it comes from this great Tumblr site called DisneyBound.  On this site they create several inspiration boards for outfits inspired by Disney characters, movies, rides, and more!  They also post what people come up with and it's pretty awesome to see how creative people get (Check out Hope's penguin outfit!).  Sometimes DisneyBound even does some outfits inspired by some non-Disney movies and the week Jurassic Park came back to theaters they posted ideas for an outfit inspired by it.  I went for it and this is what I came up with:

Those pictures were taken at the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail at California Adventure.  I wore green, brown, and black and also wore my Dinosaur necklace.

Here is a pic of my nails by a sign on the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail. 


I had so much fun watching Jurassic Park 3D on the big screen! I was happy I was able to do some dinosaur nail art before I went to see it!

What do you all think of my dinosaur nail art and my Jurassic Park inspired outfit?   I had a lot of fun trying to come up with an outfit that had the same inspiration as my nail art... I may have to do it again sometime!

Angels 5K Nails

Last weekend my husband and I completed our first 5K!  It was a lot of fun!  Because it was the Angels 5K, I decided to paint my nails in the team's colors to match!  
For the red I used Maybelline Express Finish "Speedy Hot Tamale", which now that I write it out it's kind of funny that I used it.  The name definitely fits the 5K theme!  For the blue I used LA Colors Color Craze "Wired".  I also added some sparkle to the blue with NYC "Starry Silver Glitter" polish. 

The design wasn't as elaborate as my Angels Baseball Inspired nails due to time but I still thought they were fun and they matched my running gear!
I didn't take too many photos of them but here's one more!

The Angels 5K was a really neat experience!  Since it was our first 5K we started out slowly but our second mile was pretty good!  We totally forgot about time once we got inside the stadium though!  We took a bunch of pictures and were even able to hang out in the dugout!  It was a fantastic morning!
