G is for... Garfield

     Happy Thursday everyone.  This week is going by so slow!!!!  Is anyone else having a long week?  I took a break from doing my nails on Tuesday night and just did a bunch of blog reading so I didn't have this mani done until last night.  On Wednesday night's, my husband and I go over to our best friends for dinner so I didn't have time to post this until today.  Today's mani is for the ABC's of Nails Challenge that we are doing in the Facebook group, Llama Nails.  We are going week by week through the alphabet, in alphabetical order, and doing a manicure that coincides with that letter.  I was going to settle with glitter for this week because I am really brain dead from all of these Halloween challenges, but someone had posted a Garfield comic on my Facebook and an idea clicked.  I am so happy with the outcome of this, so I really hope you like it as well.  Enjoy!

I must apologize for my crusty cuticle's.  Winter hit hard last week and I did not take care of my cuticles.  I am all over it now though.  Don't you fret.
