Wham... bam...pow! Explosion!

Although many people may have doubts and criticisms of the wonderful city of Cleveland, I can proudly say that I was born and raised in this concrete jungle. Currently, I only live a short drive out of the city and still can enjoy the wonders that downtown Cleveland has to offer. Not only does Cleveland have some really awesome tourist attractions (The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for example), we also have tons of cultural events hosted year round. I'll be the first to admit that I may not have always seen the beauty Cleveland had to offer (kind of like that saying "can't see the forest for the trees"), but as I've grown older I've learned to appreciate this great city of mine.

That being said, this is not a public service announcement to increase tourism to the Cleve, although the city could desperately use your money ;) I'll leave the convincing to this lovely tourism video. The real reason I'm telling you all of this is just to introduce the inspiration behind my current manicure :) Right now, The Avengers is filming in downtown Cleveland (really close to where Brittany works... honest, ask her about it!). Super heroes, super famous people, super tight spandex outfits. Sounds like a success to me.

Jane at Nailside had done a manicure that she called Explosion (check out her post here). I thought this reminded me of comic book speech bubbles and coincided with the filming of The Avengers. I used China Glaze - Frostbite, China Glaze - Turned up Turquoise, and Wet N Wild - Silvivor along with a lot of tape to complete this look.

I wore this mani to school today for our last teacher work day and didn't get a chance to photograph it beforehand. Forgive me for the tip wear... I had a lot of cleaning to do before the students come back!
