My Freshman & Sophomore years I played clarinet & bass clarinet. But then I realized that, no matter how hard you wail on that woodwind out on the field during a half-time show, you still can't hear it. So for my Junior & Senior years, I switched to brass instruments: baritone and euphonium, baby!!
I was part of the Blue Star Regiment, and my biggest claim to fame during that time was that we performed in the Fiesta Bowl, and I was on TV during the parade, since I was on the end of the row. :-) I LOVED being in the band, and I made some very good friends during that time, and I was very proud of what we did. We worked hard and tirelessly, were in Open Class and kicked ass, and we build a camaraderie that I have not experienced since. I was a Band Geek, and I'm super-proud!!
So, for today's mani which is for Jilltastic Design's "Try It On Tuesday" and for the letter "B" in Lustrous Lacquer's Alphabet Challenge, I chose KB Shimmer's "Band Geek". This is a beautiful black polish with the gold, silver and brass of the shiny band instruments thrown in. How perfect is that?
This polish is absolutely gorgeous!! And my treble clef from a Shany plate over Pure Ice "Jaguar" is the perfect accent, although I couldn't believe that out of my 5 sets of stamping plates, not a single one had music notes!
I must admit, "Band Geed" is now one of my favorite polishes! Visit KB Shimmer's website HERE and her Etsy shop HERE...you won't be sorry, but your wallet might be! ;-)
