Hi!


Just a quick post to let you guys know what I heard through the grapevines (i.e: Bathroom Dancer's blog post). BornPrettyStore.com is giving away free goodies! If you've never been to their website before, now's the time. (Pretty decent shipping rates to Canada, and also great merchandise, if you ask me!)

Use the code BP299 to get this cute Hello Kitty plate:

Be sure to snap yours, as only the first 1000 will be lucky enough to get one.

Use coupon code RETWEET388 to get this pack of 12 colors 2mm rhinestones:




Thanks to Julianne for sharing this!


Until next time, take care!

Double Wammy!

Good morning!


So incredibly sorry for the lack of update. I could make up excuses, but to tell you the truth, I was really tired from getting back to work and getting back into the routine of things. 


I bought a charger, so now I'll be able to retrieve my pictures! I have a few pictures taken with my iPod, and a few others with my cell, which have a very sad quality picture. I'm gonna upload all of them at the same time either tomorrow or Tuesday.


On to the manicures. Yes, with a "s" at the end: there will be 2 today! I wanna get back into the routines of posting at least once a week.


First: 




What I used:
- Sally Hansen 4-in-1 treatment (absent from photo)
- Color Institute Top Coat
- Sally Hansen New Lengths Ceramics - #02 White Tips
- Color Institute (no name, so  I called it Graphite)


It was the first time I really tried to hand pant something a little harder. I like it, but it has some place for improvement, that's for sure.


Second:




What I used:
(Sorry, no picture of what I used. I most likely forgot about it.)
- Sally Hansen 4-in-1 treatment
- Joe Gunmetal
- Joe matte top coat
- L.A. Colors Art Deco NA903 Silver Glitter

So there you go! I hope I'll get back into your graces! :P But seriously, though, I'm going to try to get a post out each week. Maybe if I use the scheduling function? I don't know. We'll see!

Ciao!

Happy New Year!

I know, I know, I'm 9 days off on this one, but I want to wish every single one of you out there, the best for 2011. May it bring peace to your home, love, happiness, and even more. :D



I'm not able to post pics from the manis from the past 2 weeks, 'cause I lost my battery charger for my camera, and I need to go buy a new one. I'm planning on going this week, though!



While we're waiting, here's a mani from back in October, when I used the Broadway Real Life Brush-On Gel Nail Kit. It's the only mani I did on those tips. I apologize for the poor picture quality. For some reason, my camera really doesn't like this red color. Here we go!


Here's what I used:


- Sally Hansen 4-in-1 treatment
- Joe Fig
- Sally Hansen New Lengths Ceramics - #02 White Tips
- Joe Matte Top Coat
- Nicole Top Coat Pro


I know it doesn't really picture well, but I tried to make the red matte, and the flowers shiny. It sorta worked, I think. This many made me happy.


I want to take this opportunity for welcoming my new followers! It always makes me super happy to see that people have an interest in my work. :D


Until next time, take care!
