Give me all of the bacon and eggs you have.

"Just give me all the bacon and eggs you have. Wait, wait. I'm worried what you just heard was, 'Give me a lot of bacon and eggs.' What I said was, 'Give me all the bacon and eggs you have.' Do you understand?"


If you aren't familiar with the quote above, you may not understand this manicure. It was spoken by the amazing Ron Swanson, one of the greatest characters on television, now or ever. Ron is known by many for his deadpan and masculine nature. He works in the city government of Pawnee, Indiana, on the comedy show Parks and Recreation. If you don't watch Parks, you are really missing out.


Ron has a deep love for breakfast food, so I tried to do him proud in this manicure by painting bacon and eggs all over my nails. The base for these nails is OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons. The bacon is made using China Glaze Desert Sun and China Glaze Brownstone. The eggs are OPI Alpine Snow, China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, and a few mixes of Happy Go Lucky with other colors for the shading.

I also made a silhouette of Ron's hair and mustache out of bacon. I like to think he would approve of this.


Ron's mustache is the stuff of legend, so I have also decided to make this my Movember manicure.

If you're unfamiliar with Movember, it's a men's health initiative where men grow out their mustaches for all of November. Their mustaches help to spark conversations and raise funds for the often ignored issues of men's health. Here's a blurb from the Movember website.
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo's, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.
They also have a men's health page that is worth checking out and sharing with the important men in your life (or reading, if you are an important man).

If you'd like to do a Movember manicure, you can also choose to associate your nails with a certain type of awareness by using a specific color. Testicular cancer's awareness color is orchid, while prostate cancer's awareness color is light blue.


I'm pretty tickled by the breakfast print that I have going on with these nails. Bacon is one of my favorite foods and I do love fried eggs (especially on burgers, mmmmm).


I hope I've done all you Ron Swanson lovers proud. I also hope you will take a moment this month to discuss men's health issues with all of the important dudes in your life.


Thanks for reading! :)

  1. Dude I love these nails so much I can't even express it. I'm like legitimately angry that I didn't come up with them. They are PERFECT. EVERYTHING ABOUT THEM. And I definitely agree on the following points: a) Parks and Rec is an incredible show; and b) Ron Swanson would approve of his bacon hair silhouette.

    GOD I LOVE THESE.

    OMG, Jemma, do yourself a favor and check out Parks and Recreation. Ron Swanson is classic, and the rest of the show is pretty fantastic, also!

    I just watched the Indianapolis episode, where this quote originated, and it reminded me about this awesome mani. Great job, and I´m certain Ron Swanson would approve. He might even publicly endorse it! ;)


    Not only is the Ron´s quote fantastic, the place of despair and frustration he´s coming from in that episode is classic. Poor Ron, he will never again be able to take a picture of himself at his favorite steakhouse. (He should´ve been there!)
