My dad loves movies. So much so that he sometimes starts to identify with the main characters. He’ll watch a movie he likes over and over, learning the lines, laughing at the jokes, singing the theme songs. He’s gone through several iterations of this – Men in Black, anything with John Wayne, the Princess Diaries (no joke). But Zorro was the first, and the longest lasting. It’s sort of his alter ego – Stevie Don Diego De La Vega.
So, on this Father’s Day, I want to give my dad a little Zorro Nail Art, because I know he’ll get a kick out of it! Nothing over the top, because Zorro has understated taste. Just some black, glitter, and a flaming Z, etched into the fabric with a sword and set on fire.
My dad is my biggest supporter. Since I’ve gotten into nail art, he’s taken an interest, too – he’ll stop anybody with interesting nails to tell them about my blog. He shares mani photos he likes with his friends on Facebook. He even let me give him a manicure when he came to visit!
Happy Father’s Day, Steve De La Vega. Love you!
