I'm 21. I'm a part-time cosmetology student, I also work full-time. I'm pretty lazy, and don't lift my fingers to do many things in my free time, except to decorate their tips =]

This blog is to document my progress, as I continue to try new things with my nails as much as possible.

I am in no way affiliated with the brands of products that I review on here, I just really love shopping.

Questions? I'm also on facebook

summer challenge. yep, you read it right!

hey everybody! today I am actually participating in the summer challenge again, woohoo!  After being out of it for a little bit.  Okay like a month.  Yes, I am a huge dick.  I went on and on about how excited I was and how I was anticipating being so super creative and being a part of a community of other people enjoying this insanity of doing multiple manicures weekly.  Yeah, go ahead and say it.  I'm a huge dick!  But I really am still excited, and if I had the time I would be so on this shit all week every week.  You know it's true!  In fact, I think everyone will be quite pleased with a challenge I will be participating in week?  I'm pretty sure it's next week.  Actually scratch that it's gonna be the week after that.  Eh, I'll think of something to go in between there, because I really think I'm getting my groove back.  It's been a super insane month, but I think I'm actually getting used to this mad schedule I have, and I have absolutely learned that recycling manis are my very best friends.  It truly gives me way more time to space out my thoughts, I can wear a color(s) for a whole day (or two!) and really think of what I really want to do to them, whereas before school started I would get so excited I could barely wait for the Seche Vite to dry before I applied tape.  Yeah..

So today's challenge is a blue+aqua+green mani!

This is sort of a little inspired by a mani Chalkboard Nails did at one point, something about fish scales or something?  Anyway I totally wasn't able to capture it so I won't even link it.  I doubt anyone will be pissed.  If you are, uh go google search some shit and just stop whining about it already!...=]

I loved wearing this mani, I love greens and blues together, and when they make teal mmmmmmm so awesome!

Here is China Glaze Gaga for Green, Hits Apolo, China Glaze For Audrey and then Tree Hugger and then Splish Splash.  For the ring it's just Gaga for Green and then a no name Jordana glitter with pretty blues and greens in a clear base=]  I only have two Jordanas, and I was absolutely floored when I was shopping in kmart out of town (we haven't had one since I was a kid) and saw that you can buy DBP and toluene and formeldehyde free shit FOR FUCKING CHEAP.

Yeah, uh I hadn't gotten the memo but there it is folks.  So I picked up pretty much the only two I saw, and I'm hoping to find more=]

Happy wednesday, y'all.  This is a scheduled post, but I can tell you exactly how this day's gonna go:  I get off work at 7 am, go home to nap, at 12 I gotta go back to work for a meeting which will last who knows how long, then I might as well just stay awake because at about 2:30 or 3 is when I normally wake up to get ready for school, which starts at 5:45, but it's a 45 minute drive away.  then school gets out at 9:45 at night, and I'm driving 45 minutes back home just to go back to freaking work.  leave me nice comments today, pleeeeeease=]
