Flying squirels and Michelle!

Good morning Lovelies!

I hope everyone is doing well this morning!

I am a bit sleepy!
I was woken up around 1:15am this morning to Macy flippin' out and barking her head off!  I asked Rob what was goin on, and he said she was hunting a flying squirrel!  Yes, these little cuties:

They are seriously precious little things!  And since we live in the woods, they like to live in our roof!  It's pretty entertaining listening to them running around, you can hear acorns rolling around, it drives Macy insane! 
Well I realized this morning that I wish I woulda had my wits about me to grab the camera, but sadly, I was too out of it!  It will happen a few more times this winter, so I will be sure to grab a picture at some point in time!
Anyway, we had to catch Macy, which is NOT an easy task!  Then had to track down the squirrel and catch it and bring it outside where it would be safe.  Then, of course once all that had been done, we let Macy out of the bathroom, since thats where we trapped her! and she had to investigate herself to make sure it was gone! 
I've decided getting woken up at 1:15 is not a fun thing!
But at least me and Rob are crazy animal lovers who can put up with this kinda thing!  We get bats in the house from time to time too!  We still can't figure out how they get in! 

Ok, moving on!

Saturday, Michelle my bestest bud and none other than owner of The Obsessed Beauty Junkie, came over and got a set of acrylics and a Konadicure!  Sadly this is not my best work!  I promise to fix ya soon Michelle!  I just didn't get to shape them as well as I could have.  I have a heard time shaping other peoples acrylics with a file, I'm always scared I'm gonna wind up scrapping their cuticle and making a sore spot!
Between that and seeing the clock ticking time away and getting closer and closer to the time out dinner guest were arriving, and nothing had been started....I started rushing, never a good thing.

But for her mani, we did as follows...

First I laid down 1 coat of a light pink franken I made forever ago, so I don't remember whats in it!
Then I added 2 coats of China Glaze Temptation Carnation.
Once that dried I placed french-tip guides on and took off the polish from the tip.
I then added 1 coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Wirlwind White and 1 coat of Pure Ice Platinum on top of that!
Then it was Konad time!
I used my Wet and Wild Black Creme and stamped the viney floral pattern from M73 over the tips.
Then, using the same polish, I stamped the floral pattern from M32, at the cuticle.
I finished it off with my Silver Glitter Stripe Rite by adding a line of glitter to the smile line. 
To me having a line there just makes it a bit more polished looking.


 

It's a bit messy, Sorry Michelle!

Well I hate to run, but I have invoices calling my name!

Oh, one more thing!  Please don't take offense if I don't have time to respond to comments this week!  I love reading what you all have to say, but may not have to time respond this week!!  SORRY!

Have a great day everyone!

Love the design you did on her nails! I hate putting acrylics on other people too! I never know if I am scratching their cuticles and sides of their nails away, lol!
