#RedThumb2Stop My Pledge

Well, I have decided to get my drivers licence a few days after me and my boyfriend at the time, now my husband, got involved in a car crash. On the right side of the road and the car we had a truck, in front we had a car and on the left another car. When we crashed I saw the truck's huge wheels near my head and destroying the mirror. It's hard for me to remember the accident, but I see it so clear that it's frightening. From that moment on I was afraid to get into the front passenger's seat, only back seat. I was afraid to go with the bus, with everything involving wheels. I was startled by every close encounter with a car...but one day, I said STOP! and that was the moment I started my classes for my driver's licence. It's 5 and 1/2 years from the accident and 4 years since I drive. And I am still afraid of traffic, heavy traffic. The only thing I do while driving, it's talk on the phone through Bluetooth. And I connect my phone while my engine is turned off. So I think that I'm a very cautious driver.
This is what this post is about. Driving carefully! No text-ing, no talking without Bluetooth...just paying attention to the road and the fellow participants: cars, motorcycles and bicycles. 
If you want to read more about our cause, check out here where Beauty Shoes Nails and Fun talks about the awareness week for this cause.
Every time I saw my red thumb red, I knew that it's not an accent hail, it is a message that I have to send to the rest of the drivers near me: Do Not Tex and Drive! Text, Then Drive! or Drive, then Text! And I hope it will stick to them. Or else....I'll paint their thumbs as well :))

I did a water marble manicure on the rest of my nails using RED, YELLOW and GREEN, the lights of the traffic light and then, using the same red, I painted my thumb's finger.

 Check out other red thumbs!
And remember, don't text and drive!

Alphabet nail art challenge - letter F

Ok, another week, another letter.
But for today I have two manicures. One is a simple french manicure using colorful nail polishes and the second one is a french manicure inspired ... manicure, I guess.

As you can see, I tried to add some yellow dots with the yellow nail polish, but it was too sheer, the yellow line it's acrylic paint. I don't really know why I didn't use it for the dots too, but, well....

This second mani I like more :) I just like how the ombrè effect looks like and the stamped flower.

The Alphabet Nail Art Challenge - Letter E

Ooops! Apparently I'm starting to move my appearance day for the manicures on Mondays :) sorry, really sorry! This weekend I slept all day long! I was physically exhausted after a hard week at work! My sleeping schedule started from Friday around 8 pm 'til Saturday at 9 am and at noon on Saturday, and then again from Saturday around 10 pm 'til Sunday at 9 am...and ended with...from 9 pm to 6 am on Monday...'cause we have to go to work again, right? :)

I didn't even get to say Happy Children's Day for every child out there! I hope you all had an amazing day and had a smile on your face remembering how being a small kid was! :)

But let's get to the mani! I had a very hard time deciding on what to do, and eventually my mom gave me the winning idea: ECLIPSE!

So I started with base coat, then on my middle finger I applied a coat of white nail polish. Then I made a gradient use the sponge technique with yellow, orange and black. After it dried a little bit, I drew a dark moon/sun with black. On the rest of the fingers I painted two coats of black and on top I added gold sparkling nail polish and some hexagon gold glitters.

And the result is as follows:
