a nubbin's sponge mani and new blogs

 I have been wearing the pretty sponge mani for 2 days = these are my nubbin-ized real nails

whoa - i have been busy. I thought for sure that July 2011 would be the month that I posted every day - but I have been making good use of the lovely weather we are having, speeding time outdoors and whipping up jewelery, so my blog...... and my nails have been neglected!

Today's post are of my real short nails. I made sure to paint them one of my favirote colours and incorporate glitter as well. This week I have some fun sewing projects and re-upholstery projects lined up - so it will be no artificial nails for me until I finish all my projects.

 im feeling nail-venturous 

stuff i used; Billie Cosmetics Aqua, icing Roger That, and LA Colors teal Glitter

I started off with this; Billie Cosmetics Aqua.

then sponged on Icing Roger that, and added LA Colors Teal glitter all over my nails. I waited till it was dry then added 2 coats of TC. I did some yard work sewing and dishes and my nail polish did not chip because I used a base coat!

Cute! I like your natural nails, too! For me that would be the perfect length. Good post!

I just <3 your sponge manis! I wish I were good with that. Every time I try it comes out a disaster. Either I mess it up and its chunky and wont dry, or I pick colours that don't go together.

Love the color combination:). I think you "real" short nails are fine. I actually like it that way more.
