LOL

We are heading to a race for the weekend and leaving tomorrow morning.  We are stopping in a large city along the way and they have an Ulta!  YAY!  so I will pick up a few more things to add to my giveaway stash then!  Keep your eyes peeled, I hope to have my giveaway all arranged and ready to announce very soon!

oh, I'm still beaming here but I'll try to get back to my regularly scheduled programing!

ok.....
Good Morning my fabulous readers!!!
How are you today?

First I have to share with you something a bit amusing.  Last night was dinner at Mom's night, and I usually take a few things to change my mani while we are there.  I started taking off the Sinful Color's "Let's Talk" mani.  I'm getting caught up on Heroes and was watching that while I took my polish off.  I started on my pinkie, and worked on it a bit, getting through the layers of top coat, Konad, top coat again, stripe color then base, and thinking, "Man, this polish does not wanna move!"  Then I looked closer....no, the polish was off...my nail was stained the exact dark purple color of the polish.  I coulda slapped a topcoat on and no one woulda known they weren't polished!  That's how bright it was!  I took a pic, and will attempt to make a post in the morning before we leave, and will share that pic then.  I have played with my white balance settings and it's still showing this polish blueish, so I think my camera just hates this color!
I tried to paint over them with Sinful's Dream-On, but even 3 coats of that was no match for the purple stain, it just bled right on up through the polish!  So, sadly I had to take off the nails.  I attempted buffing out the stain, and it worked, except I had to take off WAY to much acrylic to have a clean nail, then, they were WAY thin, too thin, and due to a few lifting areas, I figured I better just start from scratch.  So hopefully tonight I can grab a few minutes and slap on some new nails.  I feel NAKED with my little nubbin's!!!

Today I have a Konadicure that I did this past weekend.  The day did not go as planned, and the polish decided to add the the party by not cooperating, but here ya go!

I started with 2 coats of China Glaze "China Rogue" on my thumbs and ring fingers, then added 2 coats of "Liquid Leather" on my other fingers. 
Then, I broke out the Konad plates and grabbed M32.  I chose the pattern that reminds me of a heart and crossbones.  I know it's not, but that's what it makes me think of! 
On the red nails I stamped that design down the middle of the nail in Black Special Polish.  On the black nails I used China Glaze "Millennium". 
 The coat of Seche drug the design on my ring and middle fingers.  I had a hard time lining up the design in the middle of the nail, and then had to double stamp a few nails since they were too long for the design.  The Force was not with me on this round, but I guess they don't look so bad, from a normal viewing distance!  LOL

There's just something about a Chrome stamp over Black, I just LOVE that combo!

Congrats on the followers! Maybe I should post some shirtless pictures of my husband! LOL!!! I LOVE this mani! Black and red are my favorites, followed closely by pink and black! It does look like hearts and crossbones. Guess I'll add yet another plate to the list. I'm going to need a special insurance policy for all of my Konad!

Congratulations again, you deserve it- you've got a great blog!

Congrats on 100+ followers!
And I totally love this mani!
I don't have CG Millennium, but after seeing it here, I'm sure going to pick up a bottle. It looks so much brighter than SH Chrome.

Nicole said...

Oh! I can't really see the dragging, but Seche used to do that just to my regular manicures, I quit using it - drove me crazy. I think this is adorable! Reminds me a bit of a cool corset.
And CONGRATS on the 100 followers! You totally deserve it :)

PowerLifterChick said...
