I just wanted to let everyone know I'm ok. I have neglected my blog for over a week. I have been busy with work. I haven't even changed my nail polish in five days. Seems weird but I have been so tired that I just leave them alone. They still look good.
I am looking to actually organize my polishes better. I bought two different styles of polish racks that'll hold over 300. I also bought a small desk. I am making a small cubby in the house a polish station. I'll probably need more but I want to get these filled and set up first.
Anyways, I will get back to blogging in the next day or two. This month's theme for mt NCC group is all about using my untrieds. I have so many that I think I'm gonna dedicate the rest of the month with using my untried polishes. I have so many! I actually just bought 16 Sephora by OPI polishes from Big Lots for $1.80 a piece.
Here is my last Summer mani for my NCC group. I got it posted just in time since it's the last day of the month. I went with yellow again. Seems a bit weird for me but I think I might have been "pinked" out from Valentines day.
Look at me... third challenge done for the month. I feel like I have been way behind on the other months even though there was only one month I didn't complete. So I had no idea what to name this mani. It screams summer to me. I just received my Cult Nails order which had the super pretty yellow polish in it. I LOVE Cult Nails polishes.
Well now that Valentine's Day is over, it is time to get some of my NCC manis done. This month is about Summer. I have seen the sun a little bit recently but not much. We've had a nice snow storm, wind storm, and massive rain the last week and a half. Def not summer weather!
Today is Valentine's Day! Hope everyone has a great day although I know there are plenty out there that will be lonely. I am feeling a bit lonely and have to work the swing shift til midnight. That's how it goes sometimes. Well I have created a cute mani to go with my outfit. My cute top is a black mesh with white and pink hearts. It is very cute... have gotten a ton of compliments. Funny thing is I bought it at the Goodwill a couple weeks ago. I can't stand how expensive clothes are these days.
I decided to stray away from the pink for a day. I had a hard time trying to figure out something to do and thought a vampy red base would be a good start. I gotta say that this was a very good choice to go with. I think this is so pretty and feminine. Could just be me.
I am redoing a mani I did a couple years ago that I loved... this time I used textured polishes. I had found this on The Beauty Department blog. It looks like the top portion of hearts. I didn't use hole reinforcements like the tutorial states because I figured it would look similar if I just painted it on because of the texture.
So today I decided to use the new Sally Hansen Satin Glam polish I bought. It has a nice, satin finish and very pretty. I grabbed a bunch of different stamp plates and stamped different heart images on each finger to make it a skittle mani.
Here is another mani for Valentine's Day. I have decided it is all about love up until the 14th of February. Hearts and Flowers was inspired by Alice from One Nail To Rule Them All. I found this when I was looking for tutorials and waited to do it because hearts and flowers seemed perfect for Valentine's Day. It's not exactly the same because my skills are definitely not as good as hers. I didn't want to outline the hearts and mess it all up. I think it looks super cute.
