Updates on stuff

Question for everyone…

Would you prefer I just blog, or take pictures?

The issue is that I…seem to have misplaced my camera that I’ve been using for my nail blog photos. While I do have another camera, it’s rather bulky, and I’d prefer to not use it unless I have to. Hopefully I find it soon, though. :/

In the meantime, I did do a St. Patrick’s day manicure. On all but my ring fingers, I put “This Is It” from Sinful Colors, which is almost like a gold foil. Very appropriate for gold. I then put “Oscar” from Julip Maven and Sinful Color’s “Call You Later” on top of it. Both are glitters: Oscar is a simple gold glitter, while Call You Later is a green and gold glitter. (I have a fondness for that polish, as I work it every week during the Packers’ Super Bowl run in 2011.) I also put Oscar on my right ring finger, which I painted with Sinful Color’s (ironically enough) “Irish Green”. I also used Irish Green on my left ring finger, but only to paint a three leaf clover on top of a couple of coats of a generic French Manicure white. I took a pic on my phone, so if anyone wants to see it, just comment. 🙂

If I’d have known that this week was “Skittle Mani” week, I’d have taken a picture of my nails Monday night. In support of the local girls’ college basketball team, I painted my nails to match the school colors. Unfortunately, they lost, but the colors were still cute. 🙂 I love Skittle Mani’s, because it’s the best way for me to show my support for my teams. I’ll have to think about what I want to do for this week, and take either a picture with my other camera, or my phone again.

52 Week Challenge – Week 9

I HATED this mani. I hated it so much, I only took one picture of it before taking it off of my nails.

Urrgh...

I’m sure it would look better on someone who has moons on their fingers that they COULD trace, or ones the same size. I go from no moon on my pinky to a pretty decent sized one on my thumb. Because of that, regardless of if I tried to freehand or tape it, it looked HORRIBLE. I don’t know how the women in the 40’s did it. I give them props.

I have a couple other posts almost ready, but I figured I wouldn’t spam the three people who read my blog. 😉
