Tropical Gradient

Wow, I have been gone for a long time. So much has happen. I have moved twice, gotten back with the ex, been laid off from my job, and working somewhere new. I have not really painted my nails in a long time , but this new place feels like home and I am inspired again.

I saw this post somewhere else and loved the colors and tried to recreate it my way. Whomever did this I wish I could extend the credit. I had it in my to try folder for so long that I don’t remember what I searched to find it.

Baby it’s Cold Outside

I’m alive after surviving a 24 hr snow storm. My town received between 3-4 inches of snow on Saturday. I am not a snow person, but the boyfriend convinced me to go out in it with him and we took some pictures while we were out.  My alley where I parked my car is still now plowed so I have been having to get rides to work.

In honor of the snow I decided to do some icicle nails for the first time. They turned out ok, but I could of done more to make them pop.

Cheetah Print over fiery gradient

Yay, 1st post of the new year and it is a beautiful one.  I say some cool nail art online with neon polish and was bummed when I could not find my Highlighter yellow, either someone stole it or I lost it. I worked with what I had and tried a different approach to a gradient then I normally do and it turned out great. My nails looked so cool that my roommate asked me to do hers in gold and black.

My 1st Blobbicure

So I have to call it quits with trying to complete the OMD3 challenge. With my personal life and work scandal that is going on I just don’t have the time or energy to do my nails. That how down in the dumps I know I am I am if I don’t even want to paint my nails. Anywho, this is my 1st attempt at doing a Blobicure manicure, I was inspired by someone else’s nails but had to tweak it a bit as my lines were not coming in as tiny as I liked.

OMD3- Polka Dot

Grrr…. have not been doing much nail painting and I feel like it is because I am becoming depressed. The demotion is not all that bad, but some of the other supervisors are treating me different though I did nothing wrong, I did not ask for this and I feel that it was done due to my boss does not like me. The break-up is doing its thing we are trying to both do our own thing, but live together so we see each other every day and still nit pick at each other. I am feeling a bit lonely as I feel like I have lost a few friends in the matter as well. It could be me pulling away or I’m just imagining things. On to the mani. I saw this really pretty picture of black nails with colorful polka dots and was going to do the same thing, as I was putting one of the colors in I thought it looked cool the way it was so left it alone. I got lazy and did not want to walk to my nail polish bin so I just used the colors that I never put away that I used on my last mani.

I also forgot to show my new hair color, I have had it in for about a month now and am about to change it to purple. I decided to try the grey style that has been going around. It was fun for a bit, not sure if I will circle back around to it.
