I have lots to share with you today!
First I wanna say a HUGE thank you to every who suggested things for me to try yesterday! I am gonna use them ALL!!! LOL Then my toes will be indestructible!!! MUAH HAHAHAHA
On to the mani!
This idea actually popped in my head while we were lifting, oddly enough!
I started with Orly "Gorgeous" which Rob picked out for me, as a base. It was 3 coats I think. It's a purple toned magenta with a TON of blue flash!
Next, using Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in "Blazing Blue", a shimmer dark blue, I stamped the bead looking tip design from M62 diagonally across the bottom half of the nail, making sure one end went right to the bottom corner (you'll see in the pic)
Then I used the top row of beads as a guide and painted from there up with OPI "Ink".
The next day I was looking at it and thought it would be nice if that blue shimmer continued the whole length of the nail! so on top of Inky I added 1 coat of NYC "Purple Pizzazz Frost" a purple with a TON of blue flash! I tried and tried to get the blue flash to show in good lighting and couldn't. so here is a dark crap-tastic pic of it!
Today isn't just Earth day...it's my Anniversary! So I thought I'd share a few pics from the wedding day! Don't laugh, this was before I got good at makeup, and lost weight!
This pic bring so many memories back!
First, it's so weird to not see my chest/shoulder/arm covered in flames, LOL
Next, if your very perceptive, you will notice a bandaid on my index finger!
2 days before the wedding, me and mom bought all the food for the reception, brought it to our church and used the kitchen to cook it all. Yes, I made the food for my own wedding. I also made the cake, well cupcakes. (after the massive multi-tier one i made for my first marriage, I was going easy this time!)
I was chopping bell peppers for a pasta salad with mom's nice sharp knife, talking away to her (she's my bestest friend, well her and rob and my sister, but she's be my bestest friend the longest!) and I took my eyes off what I was doing for a brief second and BAM pain! I look down and wow...I had almost entirely taken off a quarter of my finger along with the nail! I went back and forth between, wow, this looks WAY worse than it feels(thank God for sharp knives), but no stitches! and CRUD now I cant do anything nice with this nail and I'll have to wear a band-aid! BOOO
yes, I thought about the fact I wasn't gonna be able to do my nail!
After much pressure and many refusals to go the the hospital, if finally quite bleeding, and we got back to work!
I get to get up, get ready and be on the road at 4am tomorrow! oh joy!
We are driving up to Highland New York to pick up a Milling machine we bought for our company.
We are driving there, loading it up and driving back. so it's gonna be a long LONG day!
Not to mention the fact that we aren't 100% sure how to manhandle it onto a palette jack, since, ya know, it only weighs 3,000 pounds! We might be strong, be we ain't THAT strong!
So due to this, no post tomorrow!
So I hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend!
