I didn’t know when or how I’d do this. The reason I didn’t do the polka dot mani was because I wanted to get a dotting tool, but never got around to getting one. I was going to not do this, but I figured “Meh, might as well use the bottom of one of my paint brushes. What’s the worst that can happen?”
A pretty cool mani, evidently.
Thank you phone camera!
I wanted to change the name of my blog, because “Lissa’s Nail Blog” was, well…kind of boring. I thought about it for a while. Then, I thought of something.
I bowl in a league, and almost every time I do my nails, they either break or the nail polish chips horribly when I’m done. Evidently, nails hate bowling.
So…welcome to Nails Hate Bowling, formerly known as Lissa’s Nail Blog
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.
Or, more specifically, a Maven.
The Box of Happiness
When I took the quiz, it came back as “American Beauty”, which makes sense. That one seems the most “jeans and T-shirt”-y. More images and opinions below.
WARNING FOR THOSE WITH A SLOW CONNECTION: It will be graphic-heavy after the jump.
These posts are always the worst. Mostly because…there’s not much to talk about. I’m an early thirty something with a ton of nail polish, which fills up a five and a half quart container. It’s also heavily unorganized because, hey, there’s not much organization I can do.
This is primarily for my nail experiments, based off of tutorials I’ve seen online. There may also be my own designs. I’m not afraid to show my attempts, where they turn out…or not. It’s fun because you can see that not all nails, or nail attempts, are perfect. You’ll mostly see my left hand, because I’m right handed, and a putz when using my left hand.
Um…I think that’s it.
EDIT: These are my opinions, and my opinions ONLY. Everyone has their own opinion.
Don’t like it? Tough. :p
