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.

Something New

I have just gotten back from vacation from the Outerbanks, NC and wish I never came back. It was so pretty out there near the beach and always near some type of water be it the beach, the sound, or the hot tub.  After my week long vacation I felt ready to try to get back into doing nails again. It helps me relive stress and zone into something other then any problems I might currently be going through. I was looking on Preenme.com and saw this pretty nail art that I wanted to try by fatimattidesigns.  I’m not going to lie around the end my computer died when I was doing the design part over the glitter polish on the middle finger and I got too lazy to do something off the top of my head. My top coat is getting gloopy and I might have to empty the bottle or look into how to fix it.

If you care here are some of my pictures from my Vacation. The house we stayed in was a 9 bedroom rental and it was possible one of the biggest houses I have ever been in. It had its on private pool and hot tub, 2 kitchens, 2 reading nooks,  and a pool table.Each room had a king size bed, a private bathroom, and a private balcony. There was a 5 minute walk to the beach where we combed from seashells and sea glass. On our vacation we climbed sand dunes, went mini golfing, and go-karting. I even took a liking to crab meat while I was down there and caught a fish when we went fishing:

Grey and Orange nails

I have fallen off the posting for a while to concentrate on more life matters. I got back with my ex and hopefully we can make this work out for the long haul, I just moved out of my apt that I have been in for 6 + years, and my job is outsourcing us and basically paying us off. The years is not even over yet, but I am sure that there will be more things to come. This mani was inspired by someone else’s Halloween mani I was having issues with the last part of of it so just left it as it was.

Also I tried a new hair color which was grey and blonde. I have been called an old lady and a black barbie

Muli-colored animal print mani

This is not an original design, but I saved it on my phone cause I wanted to see what it would look like on almond shape nails.

Here is an image of the base colors:

N.A.I.L.- April Showers

I’m still alive, but this 7:00am – 4 pm shift change is kicking my butt. It should give me more time to do what I want as I get home sooner and don’t have to sit in 4:30 traffic, but once I get home all I want to do is sleep.  Any who here is my April Shower mani, I wanted it to be rainbow raindrops, but I did not have all the colors. It still turned out pretty though.
