Leopard Print..well...almost

This was my first attempt at a leopard print manicure. Well, my second. My first was sometime last year when I first started getting into nail polish and nail art, but that manicure ended up looking like cow spots instead! Don't ask -_- LOL

I applied 2-3 coats of Cover Girl Sand Dune. I then used Milani Brown-a-licious and Unforgettable Moments Precious Metal to create the leopard print.

Pyramid Passion

Above is 2 coats of Milani Pyramid Passion with fimo flower slices on the accent nail. This is a vibrant pink polish that I have had for a while, but I don't think I have ever used. I don't know why because it is an awesome color!

Please excuse the fact that I did not clean up the top coat that spilled over into my cuticles! I usually just peel it out under hot water rather than constantly taking acetone to my cuticles but I forgot this time!

My Brooch Collection

Since I was a little girl, I always collected brooches. For those of you that do not know, a brooch is a piece of decorative jewelry that can be attached to your clothing. Although I do not usually wear brooches, I do enjoy collecting them and admiring their beauty and the uniqueness that they can add to an outfit!

 This horse brooch is one of the first brooches I remember having.

 Cute, ain't it? This would be perfect to add on to a pastel colored polo shirt with shorts.

 This brooch is a bit more "sophisticated" looking. Maybe this one could be added on to a white or black blouse.

 This brooch is one of the coolest brooches I have ever owned. My aunt passed this along to me. I believe she purchased this from a museum shop years ago.

Midnight Blue

Two coats of NK Midnight Blue. Design on accent nail done with Revlon Gold Coin and Revlon Copper Penny.

Oh, my poor blog. I have been avoiding you. Why, you ask? I have been working out everyday! (There will be another post on this soon!) I am just too exhausted to come home and write a post. Plus, I have no inspiration ;( That will change though, I am sure!

For all of you that read my blog on a regular basis, I really do appreciate your support and I promise I will make it up to you, soon!

Kreativ Blogger Award

I was tagged for the Kreativ Blogger Award by My Nail Polish Online! Thanks so much! As a part of the award I have to tell 10 things about myself.

1. I was a HUGE nail biter when I was younger.

2. I haven't been on a vacation since I was 5 years old.

3. My nose is always red or shiny. Always.

4. I could live off of dorito's and cream soda.

5. I hate when my any of my food touches any other food in my plate. It drives me crazy.

6. My favorite flowers are tulips.

7. I wish I could start my life over.

8. I am afraid of the dark. I mean not necessarily of the dark, but what might be waiting for me in the darkness. At night, I turn on all the lights going up to my room. Thank god for dual light switches.

9. I laugh easily but that doesn't mean I am always happy!

10. I am on the road to a healthier lifestyle!

I believe I am supposed to tag 10 people but I tag each and every one of you =] !

Soft, Silky and...Lucky?!

From left to right: Soft Pink, Silky Purple, Good Luck Charm

WOW! I haven't done a water marble manicure in ages! It turned out OK..I didn't realize Good Luck Charm was going to be so pale (then again it is a water marble being done with semi-thin nail polish) but it has a slight shimmer to it so it looks cool upclose! (click pictures to enlarge)

I really like the formula on these Jordana polishes. I already owned a few before but I pretty much overlooked them. However, these colors are gorgeous and will definitely be using them often!

Haul? Gifts? IDK!

*Since Blogger was being a jerk off and deleted everyone's posts and comments the other day, I have to re-post this and try and remember what I wrote!*

Can I call this a haul if these were given to me by someone? IDK! These polishes were generously passed on to me by a family friend. I was very surprised to get these because 1) I barely know her, 2) I haven't seen her in years and 3) I HIGHLY doubt she knows about my nail polish obsession! It warms my heart to know that some people can be so generous and I am so thankful to have these!

The Jungle Look

This is two coats of Ulta The Jungle Look with a few coats of Milani Gems on the accent nail. The formula of The Jungle Look was pretty damn good if you ask me!

Let me just give you all a little update about why my posts have been appearing shorter and less frequent these past 2 to 3 weeks. I go to school full time and I recently started working again part time at a new job. This means I am usually pretty busy during the week now. I always plan to write up a few scheduled posts on the weekends but I do not really get the time to because it seems like every weekend I am dividing up my time between family, boyfriend and friends.

So if you all notice me slacking a bit, don't be alarmed and I hope you all don't stop visiting my blog!
