Swear Words Manicure | Twinsie Tuesday

I have a swear words manicure for the Twinsie Tuesday prompt this week, the theme for which was words.

I was initially going to play it safe and do some “normal” words, but I changed my mind once I received the MoYou London Lingo 01 plate, which has a load of wonderful British phrases on it – including lots of swear words.

If you’re anti-swearing, you’re going to have to move on to the next post in your feed, as this may offend!

I am prone myself to a bit of swearing. My husband tells me off and calls me a “potty mouth”! I mainly swear in the car – at other drivers. I’m one of those drivers that curses those who overtake me as being madmen (it’s usually men) but will get equally irate at a dawdler. And when people forget what indicators are, or can’t stay in their lanes, then they will be berated too.

Don’t get me wrong here, I don’t wind down the window and give them a verbal outpouring. It’s always within the confines of the car … where I can’t be heard! (Except by my husband … sorry Paul!)

I used to be all polite and non-sweary, but these days I have Stephen Fry’s approach to it:

The sort of twee person who thinks swearing is in any way a sign of a lack of education or a lack of verbal interest is just fucking lunatic. – Stephen Fry

Despite being prone to swearing, I remained a little prudish though with these nails and couldn’t quite bring myself to put the F word on this manicure. So my index finger displays the very mild “oh bother”.

The ring finger is my favourite though. (And comes with a word of warning to my American readers: you seem to have started using this word now in the US – but it’s stronger than the way you are using it – you can’t go around calling people it over here – you’ll get yourself decked!)

I did the same but in italian!

Ha ha – I’ll go have a look. I know a fair few Italian swear words – but they were taught to me by a native speaker and they are unrepeatable!

Sharon Leavy

OMG I’m so slow, I was looking at the ring finger for ages before it registered! Briliant! The one on my little finger is my go-to swear word 🙂

Claire Kerr

Mine too 😀

Sharon M

Love the idea! And, yes, I think the f word would have been a bit much but you did a fabulous job. And the ring finger is my favorite, too! So clever!

Lisa N.

Great idea for this theme!

Claire Kerr

Gotta love Stephen Fry!

Inky Whiskers

Absolutely! It’s a rule. LOL


I love the red, white and black together 🙂 great job on the stamping too it’s centred so well! I need to work on my stamping placement

Claire Kerr

Thanks. I used a clear jelly stamper. It completely takes the guesswork out of things when aligning the stamping.

Haha love this! I am constantly screaming and swearing at other drivers as well, but of course they never hear me either!


Haha I love these so much! Your stamping turned out so perfect!
