Lovely day to you! :) *Ahem* I guess I would keep the unpleasant post out of this week. Since it's been a rather good week. Don't want to "spoil combo" by having a sudden not-so-nice post. LOLs! So, last Tuesday, I was on my way out when found this little fellow stranded in front of my gate. :O
She moves a lot, so it's rather hard to photograph her. Hahahaha! Aww, ain't she the cutest?! I'm not too sure if she's an escapee or one on the road for sometime. But when I found her, she was really dry. And and... I'm claiming her :3
Here you can see she's not exactly in the best condition, I'm not sure what's up with her shell (anyone know?) I hope there's nothing bad. This is my first time rearing a slider. Fortunately for me, my cousins rears one, and gave me great tips on how to care for her. Thank you! ♥ She's probably my second pet. My first pets should be the gold fishes I scooped up with the paper-nets during a Japanese festival few years back. I was having fun playing the 'game' when it hit me that I don't exactly have a place to keep them. Plus it was almost midnight! There wouldn't be any shops open. It's a good thing I have relatives who had spare aquariums for me to use. Hahahahaha!!
Hehe, isn't it natural when you're in love with a certain creature, everything about it is inspiring? In this case, I love how beautiful her stripes are and how unique it is (okay, looks kinda watermelon-y) nevertheless, a beauty of its own. ^.^
When I attempted this, I didn't know if I'd like it on my nails as much as I love on the Red-Eared Slider. I had initially thought I would go ahead and have similar patterns on all nails. Then I saw her eyes. WOW! It's one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen! Such a beauty would be a waste if it isn't incorporated into this nail art! ;)
Hahaha!! I strongly believe, it is the eye that completed this nail art! :) Well, I didn't quite capture it's total beauty - hopefully it's still enough. I only wish I had dared to add the white dot for the eye reflection.
Much to my surprise though, these greens really made my skin look fairer under the lighting. Weird, I thought it would have made me look more yellow than I am or more olive-ish. Hehe, that's all for today! I wish you all a beautiful weekend!
