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

Birthday girl

Hey guys! So I feel like I should let everyone in on some awesome news from my birthday! Tuesday was my birthday, and my boyfriend made me this awesome cake!  It's fun-fetti with whipped icing, just how I like 'em!  He's much better than I am with decorating cakes lol
Also, we finally got our washer and dryer, and my mom got me a laptop!  She also took me shopping, but if you can believe it, I actually didn't buy anything makeup or nail related.  Ha, I'm lying, but I honestly got like two things and thats it, the rest is clothes!
So the internet/cable people come on monday to get us set up, and then hopefully after that you'll all be hearing from me more often!  I am too psyched about this.

But then there's the not so fun news: I gotta go on a no-buy, and it's forrealforreal this time.  We're getting some brand new bills starting this month and I just don't even see how I could squeeze any personal shopping in there.  I hope I'll be able to spare the cash to buy my haircolor, but that's about it.  I really gotta have some self-control, and it's gonna be hard.  Luckily I have a pretty okay sized stash in my opinion, and it should keep me pretty busy until I can buy more.

Just so you know, I haven't forgotten about my stamping collection, I've actually just added to it! More on that later, but just in case you thought I'd forgotten how to scrape nail polish, here's some good ol' cheeky designs for ya!

This is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Lickety Split Lime and then Deborah Lippman Almost Paradise. The lime is so awesome, I don't have any other Insta-Dris but this is just ONE coat. and it stamps like a dream. I will be stocking up on these, once I can =]


  1. sounds like you had a great birthday!
    I'm on a no-buy too :( You can do it though! making a weekly wishlist really helps and you feel great when you see the amount of money you didn't spend :P

    1. lol yeah it went pretty well.

      it kinda sucks, but it's like I know what I need in life and polish can wait.

  2. Belated b'day greetings! That's so sweet of your boyfriend, that cake looks yummy! Good luck to your no-buy mission. It's a tall order :-))

    1. thank you! it's definitely delicious but we can never seem to eat an entire cake within a week. Which would sound really weird if you knew both of us lol

  3. Happy Birthday!!!! I was on a no-buy for July, but that didn't work out, I bought less than I normally do, but still bought plenty.

    1. thanks! lol well I actually have a new reason besides my mounting bill payments to be on a looks like this is gonna go on for a while. More on that later!

  4. Very nice... This looks lovely!

    Happy birthday in areas.
