In Honor Of Sir Christopher Lee: My New Lord of the Rings-Inspired Nails

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 4.824% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

I kind of thought about getting dinosaur nails this time around, but the problem is that a) I’m not a huge fan of Jurassic Park, and b) I have yet to see Jurassic World so I don’t know if I like it, and c) if it turns out I don’t like Jurassic World then I would have to stiff-grin smile at Jurassic fans for the next month as they attempted to share their love with me.
(Seriously, if you have the right nails, people will yank you aside to squee at you. Which is great when it’s something you love, but try not to advertise fandoms you’re not into upon your body or you’ll drown in awkward conversations.)
But then I remembered that Sir Christopher Lee had died:


And I remembered he was a huge Lord of the Rings fan, back when being a Lord of the Rings fan was about as nerdy as one could get – and he made Lord of the Rings magnificent. (He wanted to be Gandalf. He would have been a too-terrifying Gandalf. He was, however, a perfect Saruman.)
And I wanted to honor him.
And as usual, my mad manicurist Ashley has struck again – this time with a simple design that is striking and bold:
My Lord of the Rings nails, In honor of Sir Christopher Lee.
My Lord of the Rings nails, In honor of Sir Christopher Lee.
Yes, that is the White Tree of Gondor, along with the One Ring on my thumbnails. (I told her that someone I knew would doubtlessly be an Elvish linguist, and critique her faked Elvish script; the running gag then became that my thumbnails said “This guy is an asshole” in Elvish.)
As usual, you can see Ashley’s past designs on me here, and she does work right here in Cleveland for extremely reasonable prices. She likes money. Go give her some if you’re local!
