The Warden Threw a Party in the County Jail

The prison band was there and they began to wail. The band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing. You should've heard those knocked out jailbirds sing.

Anyway.... You know what yesterday was, right? Because if not, I don't think we can be friends anymore.

I'll give you a hint: Blue Suede Shoes. No? How about Heartbreak Hotel? Okay, okay! At Nails Like Lace, we are celebrating the birth of the king: Elvis Presley! And in true NLL style - with an Elvis mani!

I've done Elvis nails before, back when I first started this crazy nail art journey, but I've long since deleted them from existence because they were just insulting. Like, I feel I need to go to Graceland, grovel and beg for forgiveness, and apologize directly to Elvis' grave. They were horrific to say the least.

Now I'm not saying today's nails are fantastic by any means! But I did spend a good two hours on this mani, and have years more of practice since my last attempt at artistically honoring the king. So they're a tad more post-worthy. :)

This mani is my Day 9 mani for both Amy's Untried Jan challenge theme Elvis, and Twinkie's black and white theme.

My untried base is Sinful Colors Snow Me White, plus I used Milani Black Swift and Ulta High Roller for the stripes, silhouettes, and lightning bolt.

And of course had to pose the mani with my Elvis bear. :)
