Heart Bling + My South Carolina Trip

I saw this super cute nail design while looking on Google for nailspiration.I just had to match it to my dress I was wearing for my cousins 50th birthday party.  The pink gems are supposed to be a heart. It might have went better if I had smaller gems. We went on a lovely dinner boat ride with 64 of my other relatives.

This is the dress I wore it was very sheer in the front and had a high slit up the side:

While we were pulling out for the dinner boat tour we saw a double rainbow. So we knew we were not doomed to crash as it was a good omen. No lie I was feeling like doing a Leo Dicaprio moment  on the front of the boat due how windy it was it would have been perfect.double rainbow

The food was just delish. The offered your choice of swordfish, steak, chicken, and quail. Me wanting to broaden my horizons chose the quail. Not much meat on the little bird, but it was tasty. The thing that pulled it all together was the white chocolate creme brulee.

The dog came along with us again and behaved himself very well. He is so good at car rides! Here is a picture of him sleeping sitting up.

Orly-Gravity Bound swatch + mani

I have come to realize that I keep buying all of these polishes and have yet to wear more than half of them. well that is going to change. I am trying to add more structure to my blog, not sure why as I work better with chaos.

I nabbed Orly gravity bound from my local Sally’s Beauty supply mostly because the colors reminded me of a peacock. It has a dark blue shimmery base with purple and white hexagon glitter.

Anti-Bullying day

Today is anti-bullying day. I will not lie in the past have have not bullied someone but I have said things I should not have about another or said something behind someones back that was hurtful. I have grown from that and do have a better understanding that it’s not cool to hurt someones feelings . The color for anti-bullying is purple so I did a nail design with NYX Dark Purple and added a orange gem to the middle of my nail. I was rushing so it did turn out sloppier than I wanted.

Wah Nails Gemstone Rain

So I have not artistic talent at all and needed help with ideas and such and how to improve on some of the things I liked to work on. I purchased The WAH Nails book it has awesome ideas and the nail designs are beautiful if some are not a little out there ( the eye ball I will do closer to Halloween).  So the first on that I tried ever on my nails was the the WAH design Gemstone rain. What I did first was a gradient nail design I did Avon’s Luxe  Lavender and Avon’s Viva Pink. Next the design asked that you put on 3 different size gems in multiple colors throughout the nail. It turned out beautiful and has to be one  of my favorite nail designs.

Breast Cancer Awareness

All Halloween stuff aside it is also breast cancer awareness month, I have not been affected or has anyone close to me but I support all those that are going through it or knows someone who is. I bought the OPI I think in pink set of 2 colors to support the cause. The colors are I Think in Pink-which is a very sheer pink ( not really a fan due to I have to use about 3 or 4 coats of it) and the awesome You Glitter be good to me- which is tiny pieces of pink glitter with medium size purple shapes.

For my breast cancer nails I painted my nails with a color that I got from Avon it is Viva pink and it is in their nail pro wear collection.

To spruce it up I did a french Mani on all of my nails minus the ring fingers with OPI’s You Glitter be good to me. For the ring finger I covered them fully with the Glitter be good to me. For the pinky I tried to do a breast caner ribbon on my pinky’s. In person it looks like what it is supposed to but the photos don’t really do it justice.

Dancing with the stars

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finally Dancing with the stars is back on. I was unable to watch last season due to I changed shifts and now work 1:30pm to 10:00 pm. Now that I can record TV I was able to catch both episodes that aired this week.  I am so obsessed with this show that I even took ballroom dancing lessons. I was inspired by some of the costumes to do nail designs so I will be showing that for the next few days. So this first one I was inspired to do a design like Kym’s , she is Joeys partner again this year. He did so well and is always full of energy. Here is her outfit :

 And here is what I came up with:  I used a gold background( I had to use one of my stripers due to the gold that I do have was not cutting it) and I attached clear gems of different sizes  to the right side of my nails to look like the gems that were raining down her shoulder.Ignore the black around the nails my previous nail design did not want to come off
