Sock Monkeys!!

Good Morning and Happy Monday!! Today's NOTD nail art design is Sock Monkeys.

Back in the 40's the toy "sock monkeys" were a easily home-made toy out of socks. Here's an example.

Now most of us older people and a few younger people remember these toys. I saw this done on the internet somewhere and I just KNEW I had to do it!! Because who doesn't love sock monkeys????

I wore these for a week until I had seriously worn the tips off, you can see some of that in the pictures because I foolishly didn't photograph them right after I did it. But I LOVED wearing this and I will likely do that again. I know being a teacher all last week that the kids loved it too because I incorporated my monkey nails into songs about monkeys.

I hope you enjoyed today's nails and I'll be back with another nail design that I'll be wearing this week. I am absolutely in the mood to be rocking some spring themes!!
