A few hours ago, I landed in Los Angeles, turned on my phone, and confirmed what you already know. Sony Pictures Television is replacing me as showrunner on Community, with two seasoned fellows that I’m sure are quite nice - actually, I have it on good authority they’re quite nice, because…
Recipe letter from Marianne Moore to George Platt Lynes
Um. My favorite poet’s recipe for mayonnaise.
I was hoping this would become a thing.
I’m not sure about everyone else but uh.. Fire is freaking hard to draw. However, I wanted to do my own version of the Girl on Fire nails, so I present to you fire nails for the artistically challenged!
I started with two coats of Sally Hansen Black Heart, then topped it with a coat of Essie Matte About You (which I’m quickly running out of :( ). Once that was dry I took scotch tape and cut tiny triangles out of it to make jagged zigzags/spikes. I put the tape on the back of my hand first so it’s not sticky, then I put it on my nail, painted over it with a coat of China Glaze Riveting, then I peeled the tape off before letting it dry.
Also, how amazing are black matte nails? And Riveting is friggin’ gorgeous. I’ll do a legit review of it sometime in the future.
Riveting is from China Glaze’s “Colors of the Capitol” Hunger Games collection. Sold out in most places I’ve seen, but you might find it in a beauty supply store still. I’d like to see this mani done with Riveting over Stone Cold, a matte black glitter from the same collection, because I imagined Katniss’s “girl on fire” nails being very glittery when I read the book. (All Lacquered Up has great swatches of the entire collection, for those who are curious.)
Furthermore, putting the tape on your skin before using it on your mani is an excellent tip for people interested in trying tape manis!

I just took one and it gave me ENFP, though the E is barely expressed. I have no idea what that means.
