Giveaway: $50 Gift Card from Nihrida

Wednesday, October 20, 2010


Yeah, I had to put that in all caps cause it's JUST THAT HORRIBLE!  UGH!
Plus, people always show pretty manicures and designs, and sometimes it just doesn't work out how you pictured it!  This is one of those times.

To start off, I am in a serious nail rut.  I have had no polish on my nails for almost 2 weeks.  My sister asked me if I needed to talk about anything!  Usually I change my polish at least twice a week, so for me, this is a big deal.  I just can't seem to come up with anything interesting.

So last night I tried to snap myself out of my funk and do a Breast Cancer/Depression month mani. I wanted to combine the two colors (green and pink) of Breast Cancer and Depression awareness into a mani.  So I thought I would do a water marble.  Ok, so I get out my Wet and Wild white, Icing Black, Finger Paints I Pink I can and China Glaze Paper Chasing.

First off, the FP and CG are way  sheer!  So the black overpowered them in the mani.  Also, the sheer, sparkly colors always dry super fast on top of the water and are difficult to swirl into a design, because the dry to a skin.

Ok, hold you breath.....this is horrific and I apologize in advance of any scarring of retinas that may occur from the ugliness of this "design".

YUCK!   Looks like some oil that came out of the Exxon Valdez!

I tried to help by adding a few heart spangles from Viva La Nails.....NOPE didn't work!

The only successful part of the mani....

The breast cancer ribbon!  I will try again!  And hope and pray it doesn't look like a craptastic mess!!!!
Have a POLISHED day!

The Good, The Bad and the WHAT THE??????

Sorry for the small hiatus.  I missed Giveaway Friday and I apologize, but on to the next post.  I decided pretty late in the evening (for me) to do a manicure using KleanColor Plum on my nails.  I also received my blogger free package from viva la nails. (VLN) I know most of you are aware that this UK based company has been providing bloggers with free samples of their nail art products in exchange for a review on their blog.

So I start with the KleanColor Plum, and MAN O MAN am I in LURVE with this color!
A pretty purple jelly!  Look at this!!!
