And I just can't keep living this way
So starting today, I'm breaking out of this cage
I'm standing up, I'ma face my demons
I'm manning up, I'ma hold my ground
I've had enough, now I'm so fed up
Time to put my life back together right now!
                  -"not afraid" eminem

So I'll be unemployed in 2 weeks...and I'll be okay =)

I wanted to thank everyone for their kind comments.  I really appreciate all the advice that was given.  I went through each comment and really thought about what was said and then came to my decision.

This is just a simple blog but with all the people I've talked to and "met" it just seems much more than that.  Thank you for being my readers/ commenters/ followers. 

Back to the nail polish world....

sooooooooooooo...I received a wonderful package from Ms. Delaynee on Thursday.  It was....China glaze For Audrey...one of my long time lemmings =)
She is such a sweet heart for sending it over to me....plus she used express post.  o_o
Thank you Ms D!

By the way, I am using a different camera so my photos are not as nice as before.  The original camera I used was a canon rebel but it was my brother in law's and he needed it back so I returned it. My photos are now taken with a pentax camera, which is terrible for taking macro shots, the colors are a bit off and somewhat blurry. I also had to use flash for my photos or else the designs would not show up...please bare with me for a few weeks until I get the camera back.

Ms. Delaynee didn't just send me for audrey, she also sent me the double ended konad stamper....ekk!

Of course I had to apply For audrey right away and nail stamp it

On top of stamping I had to bling my nails up with viva la nails hexagonal nail glitter.  I need to get more of these because I think their glitter would be perfect for frankens, especially for making dupes of deborah lipmanns hexagonal glitter polishes.  Just take a look at their neon glitter..the glitter comes in all sizes !!!!

Please note the glitter used was received from the viva la nails sample pack, go sign up for one right now!!

So..here are my nails..which you sort of already saw in the very first picture:

Items used:
  • China glaze for Audrey
  • Sally Hansen xtreme White on
  • Konad image plate M78
  • teal dazzling glitter from viva la nails

** ChaosButterfly and *~ JuLiAnnE ~* tagged me for blog awards so i'll be putting them up in my next blog post =) 

Nfu Oh came in the mail!!!!

Wednesday, September 8, 2010 Category : , , 9

My lovely 51 arrived in the mail all safe and undamaged =) It was a long 2 week trip from San Franciso to Vancouver but 51 still looks as sexy as ever.

The application was awesome, smooth and dried rather quickly and it is 18 mL of polish...drools.
In the picture I applied 3 coats. You can still see the nail line if you squint but this is a jelly polish so seeing the nail line is rather common.
I wore 51 for 3 days at work and not a chip in sight..which makes me a huge fan since my nails really get a beating at work.

I think every person who loves nail polish should own something from nfu oh.  The bottle itself is gorgeous.  This polish was worth every penny.  =)

** I apologize for the middle picture being all distorted looking. I was trying to get a good angle of the flakies and when I took the picture the angle made the bottle look much thinner than its actual width.

Oh yes, if you're a reader from the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, or Germany don't forget to enter my giveaway for a $35 gift card
