Long time, right?

Well I have been working on myself and am getting better. I'm on a new medication that is really helping with my fibromyalgia pain though that's not why I was prescribed it. I haven't been painting my nails very often and my cuticle suck right now but I am thinking about picking up where I left off soon. Yesterday, the nail on my pointer finger on my left hand broke and look/feels awful. Here is a pic of the nail right now. Hopefully next week it will be a bit better so I can blog here and there. I also have to get my good camera out since this is from my iPhone 6 and the coloring looks a bit off.

Iridescent Lilac Frenchy

So I have had a couple nice manis the last week but have failed to take pics. I actually packed up my camera and charger when starting my bedroom reorganization. I started that a couple months ago and it barely started and then I lost motivation... kinda like I did with this blog. Now I am planning on starting it up again and will make sure to get my camera ready to go again. So for now, iPhone pics will have to do.

So here is a look I haven't worn in forever. I happened to stumble upon one of the polishes I made last year and thought I would use it while my nails aren't too stained for it to look bad. I call it Iridescent Lilac. It is a light purple jelly with iridescent glitter and shimmer. I love it! I especially love the iridescent squares. You can see them best on my middle finger. I used three coats so you know how light of a color it really is.

I used my Orly white striper for the tips. I only had to fix one nail and it was on my other hand. I am so proud of myself for that!

Literary Lacquers Ether Binge = Summer!

Here is the start of my return. I am feeling better and starting to want to blog again. So I am starting it all off with a new polish I received about a week ago. It is such a pretty color in and out of the sun!

Hello friends!

I know I kinda went MIA without much notice. I have had to deal with my own things and haven't had the desire to even paint my nails but every 3 - 4 days. I think I will come back to this soon but for now, I am on a brief hiatus. I am starting to think about painting my nails more often and blogging so I am getting there. Next time I post, I will be showing off some nail art!

Her Briar Rose Wood Gradient

I did this mani three weeks ago and just posting it. Sorry about that! I have really lost my love for blogging. I am leisurely posting now to see how it goes. I don't want to stop all together but I need some time. I have been struggling lately with my fibromyalgia and also re-injured my left wrist while at work. Yesterday, I went to see a therapist for the first time and she has managed to make me feel very depressed again. She said I will never find myself in a relationship because I don't have anything to offer. I told her that is how I feel but I don't think she is supposed to agree! Now I just feel like a worthless, fat, ugly loser. I have cried a few times since then. I wish I could hide in my room. I wish I could just be happy. Anyways, sorry about all of that. Back to the purpose of my blog...

KKCenterHK Flower Nail Foil Review and Discount Code

I was sent some stuff to review by KKCenterHK and am reviewing a cool flower nail foil. The nail foil is N.Nail Lovely Flower Sea Nail Foil Transfer. It has a clear background to it so you can put any color on underneath and it will show through. I wanted to show off the foil and thought it would look nice over a nude base.

Static Hearts

A couple days ago I bought three new Salon Perfect polishes. Well since I have been using untrieds so far this month, I decided to keep it going. I wanted to do something cute and fun. This is what I came up with.

NCC Untrieds #4 - Milky Way Flower

Well I am turning into a bad blogger since it has been over a week since my last post. So much for the New Year's resolution! Oh well. I have been dealing with a change in meds and setting up my own little nail polish cubby. I'll post pics once it is all done. I am excited to get it done! I am in dire need of some real organization of my 1000+ polishes. So, I have my last untrieds mani for my challenge this month.

NCC Untrieds #3 - Too Dimensional?

So I had bought three L'Oreal polishes from the Gold Dust collection a couple months ago and left them in a bag. I have been setting up a little nail polish cubby and found them. I had forgotten how pretty and sparkly they looked in the bottle. Too Dimensional? has a blurple base with a gold dust shimmer and blue/silver glitters mixed in.
