Hello - I miss blogging, writing about my nails and reading about all the fabulous nail polish and related nail art that everyone all over the world is doing......I sometimes wonder what happens to bloggers who disappear - many of them have a little write up about whats going on in their lives and why they are on a break and stuff - my problem is that I get on the computer and start reading everyone Else's blogs, looking at pinterest and other sites, then run out of time to post and write about my own stuff. It takes me longer to add/edit photos, do a little write up and post an entry than it does to actually do my nails.
so ~ I'm still alive, I'm still here = reading, lurking, jealous of those American girls and their easy andin-expensive access to awesome drugstore polish..... and still painting my artificial nails. In the new year I set out to appreciate my time more, do more crafts and sewing etc, but I find that I have no will-power when it comes to the Internet - I have so many interests and so many things I like to learn..... but instead of DOING I am WATCHING.... and that is a big problem that needs some serious self discipline
Any-hoo; here is today's Mani - I started with 2 coats of an exceptionally pretty metallic, dark purple polish that I found at a dollar store in WPG. from Midie Cosmetics. I added some cute nail art stars to my ring nails by applying a coat of Top Coat then affixing the stars in a diagonal pattern, along with a few dots of Sinful Colors I Love You, then finished it off with another thick coat of TC.
If this looks vaguely familiar it was inspired by this beautiful manicure from NailsyMo
stuff I used
this is a well priced and fast drying top coat - I have been looking for this one for a while
I used a coat of Pro-FX top coat that I found miraculously un-violated at Walmart. I had been looking for a bottle of this un-opened and unused for a few months, I don't understand why people mess up products in the store. This must be pretty popular because the shelves were empty of it - or there was only one left that had dried crusty polish all over it. = yuck
I added 1 coat of TC then quickly affixed the nail art decorations to my ring nails.....
when I spotted these in the Dollar store I didn't realize that some of these vials had two sizes of each shape = BONUS!
