Remember w while back when I said things would have to slow down blogging wise, cause life in general and work, had just gotten brutally crazy? Yeah...I wanna go back to that time! Things are seriously insane right now, ESPECIALLY at work! So much so that I wake up with a stomach ache most mornings, just thinking "how am I gonna get all this done". I have to keep myself from thinking about it at night otherwise it starts to effect my sleep. I seriously hope to have this massive changeover done in the next few months, but until then I hope you can all hang in there with me! I enjoy blogging so much, but anymore it has turned into a chore, and I hate that! I want it to be fin again, and it will be, once things quiet down!
One thing that shows how crazy stuff is...I didn't even wish my sister a Happy 21st birthday on my blog! I feel terrible! Every year I make her a cake, it's kinda a tradition....Would you guys like me to post a few pics one day? I'm no Landa, but I enjoy it and she gets a kick outa the crazy stuff I come up with for her! And once in a while (like this year), I actually look at the finished product and am happy with what I see.
We went to see the Expendables this past Friday...
WOW! So Awesome! If you like action RUN and go see it now! Seriously! And once you see it, tell me...Is Terry Crews' gun not the coolest thing EVER!!!! My Favorite seen in the whole movie is his gun scene! LOL
OK...tired of my rambling yet? ready for the mani?
I was super pleased with the way this mani came out! It looked so good! Then I took the pictures and looked at them and was like "Who's mani is THAT???" The pictures look terrible! I am always amazed with just how terrible macro makes a mani look. But, because I know alot of you can relate, I figured I share regardless of how terrible it looks in the picture!
I had an idea to do a tiger inspired mani and here's what I came up with:
I started with a base of Color Club "Best Dressed List"
Then, using a stiff brush, I stippled Color Club "Charity Ball" diagonally at the cuticle, and Color Club "Who Are You Wearing?" at the free edge. ( I actually liked the way this came out better than my attempts with sponging in the past!)
Then I stamped the Zebra/Tiger stripe print Konad image from M57 with Konad Special Polish in Black.
In person it looked more like a gradual fade from one color to the other and less splotchy than the pic makes it look. I had to take the Index finger out of the picture since it took a few days to get this pic, and the index nail had some serious flaws by then!
I will do my best to be back tomorrow with some fun stuff to share!
Maybe Animal pics from vacation, or some cake pics...we shall see!
