DS Extravagance-Pretty!

Oooh, how pretty.  I've had this polish since Christmas(it was a gift from hubby).  It called out to me this morning, so I just had to do a mani with it.  No matter how hard I try, I can never get clean-up to look 100%.  Ballz.

DS Extravagance...wowza.

Butter London-Dosh

Butter London Dosh.  A molten apple green shot through with metallic gold.  I'm in love with this color.  I want to bathe in it.  This just might be my second most favorite color of all time!

OPI Greenwich Village & Mini Haul

Hubby took me to have my nails done yesterday.  He said that with all that I have been through lately, he wanted to do this for me.  Which meant pay for them.  HA!  I thought I could try natural nails, but nope, don't like em on myself, so back to acrylics I went.

I walked into the salon with a bottle of my choice but when I was looking at their colors, I saw OPI's Greenwich Village and knew that is the color that I need to have on.  I'm not sure it suits my skin tone though.  I will give it a few days to see how I feel about it.

Also, I stopped at Walgreens and purchased a few colors from Sinful Colors Petal Pushers Collection.  For only being $1.99(I totally missed the sale), they really do have some pretty colors.  I just adore the little rings that come with it and I am sure once my niece sees them, she will take them hostage.

Hazard, Mint Apple, Savage and Amethyst.  My Butter London Dosh also arrived in the mail that I purchased from eBay.
Tomorrow is another day and I can't wait to play around with these colors!!

Rite-Aid Haul

Hubster got home at a reasonable time yesterday and asked how I was feeling.  For the first time in a week or so, the headache was "tolerable", so we decided to grab something to eat for dinner.  I only ate a BLT and fries but that was the first real food that I have eaten in 5 days!  It tasted oh so yummy.

On our way home, he needed to stop at Rite-Aid and told me that he had seen they had nail polish on sale for 75% off.  I wasn't planning on getting out of the car until he said that to me LOL.

They had select brands/colors but I noticed that the entire  nail polish line was 75% off.  Normally, these are $8.00 a bottle.  What a deal!  I grabbed all of the colors that I liked :)  From L-R are:

Palermo Plum
Stellare Notte
Espresso Brown
Carnevale Grape
Buon Viggio Mauve
Felice Tangerine
Enro Green

And, since it was 75% off as well, I also grabbed Sally Hansen's Save The Dance.  I can't wait to play around with these colors.  w00t!

Ugh. Man Hands

In the below post, I mentioned how my DIY product of filling in my own acrylic nails was an EPIC fail.  I have been in and out of the hospital for the last two days now and ripped off my acrylics.  Now, I have these chubby lil ugly man hands and I hate it!  In doing so, it tore the crap outta my cuticles and nails.

I will NOT be without my acrylics(stated in entry below), but with me being as sick as I am, in and out of the hospital, it is nearly impossible for me to get another set put on.  Maybe I can just cut the nails down, clip the cuticles and buff them like crazy and maybe so a sponge mani or something that will help since the nails seems "uneven".

I need an over haul LOL.

EPIC Acrylic Nail Balance FAIL

Without acrylics, I have man hands.  Pudgy stubs that have a nail with no substance.  My real nails have no thickness and are soft and brittle.  It doesn't matter what awesome product I use, I just don't like the look of my natural nails.

Last July for my b-day, I treated myself to acrylics.  Ever since then, I have been getting a balance about every two weeks or so.  I can not stand the look of my natural nails growing from the cuticle and my real nails grow fast.  Paying $40 a month was starting to tick me off.

So, I came up with a brilliant idea and decided to go to Sally's and buy a DIY acrylic kit.  Now, I realize there is a reason these girls have a license.  Even though I followed instructions to the T, I messed up BIGTIME.

Having dried acrylic OVER your cuticles isn't fun and it hurt.  I have no clue how it got all over the place(maybe I was being overly messy), but I had to run to the store and buy pure acetone.  The soaking process took forever and I STILL didn't get all the acrylic off.

I am gonna feel like the biggest goober going back to my manicurist and telling her the story.  *sigh*  Lession learned, let the pro's handle the stuff that I don't nothing about.

Daddy Said So

When I was released from the hospital, I needed a new mani.  Hearing the news of the tumor, one can imagine that I was in a down mood.  I called home and spoke to my Dad.  He asked what I was doing, and I told him that I wanted to paint my nails, but didn't know what color.

Dad suggested a "rainbow mani" which I corrected him and told him it was called a skittle mani :) He said "take a picture and send it home so I can see"(they live in the dinosaur years and don't own a computer).

I used all Julep colors except the middle one is OPI's Fly.  So, this mani is for my daddy ♥
