Curry Up Don't Be Late

I seriously think that is the best name of a nail polish ever.

Sooo.. Yesterday, I did the look I had drawn out, and it just didn't work out like I thought it would. Maybe if I didn't rush it would have better, who knows! Yes.. I will post a pic of how it turned out before I actually fixed things up. I then didn't let everything dry and we all know how messy that can get.

See.. kind of blah! I will try it again someday, but take my time on it more.
I then removed it last night due to its ugliness and sat down this afternoon to do one of my favourite designs that I also get compliments on.
We shall take at look at what I used..

Sorry, I am really short, stubby, sausage like fingers.. /tear - oh well! Ohhh.. and background to doing my nails.. I just have to post this because I am such a Twilight fangirl:

Smokin' Fox right there.
Anyways.. That is how my nails look at the moment. Of course after I hit the shower later, the nail areas will be so much cleaner as always.
I am also awaiting a shipment of nail art pens. In 24 fancy colours! YAY!

So, I am finally starting to feel a bit better. I started to feel sick last Tuesday, and from there on it went into some full-blown extreme illness. I actually think I might have pneumonia again but refuse to see the doctor yet.

1. Because I hate having to go for chest x-rays. So uncool.
2. I hate taking those monster pills. Not only are they hard to swallow due to the sore throat action, they also hurt the stomach!
3. I just hate admitting that I am actually sick.

Today was the first day in a week that I actually put a smidge of effort into putting on make-up. I even prepped my nails, so, again, hopefully sometime during the day tomorrow (err.. later today) I will do my nails! Hopefully I won't have to sneeze, cough or blow my nose long enough to do a design. I have been mapping out designs I want to paint for about a week now. Dorkface I know.

I will actually share what I plan to do so that this isn't a totally lame post (although I don't think anyone really knows of me, yet ;p)

Sorry.. Just a quick 2-min sketch. Haven't decided on purple or pink for the line action, but basically that is what I am going with!

Anyways, I should go get some snooze time in. Later!

Newness

So, for the last few days I have been creeping on people’s blogs (mostly makeup and nail inspired blogs – because that is what I love!!) and then it occurred to me that maybe I should just make my own blog so that I can add all these blogs so I don’t have to be like ‘oh yeah, I was creeping that one girls’ blog with the cool nail art and found that other girl with the awesome make-up, gee, what was her username again?’

And now Dee’s Stuff is born.

I stay ‘stuff’ because I am not going to just post about makeup or nail polish, but also about art, movies, gaming, etc, because, well, I like all of these things. I have realized that as I have gotten older (23 since April 4th, yay!) I have slowly become more girly. Verrry slowly. I will probably never be a complete girly-girl, but hey, it is a step forward! I have also started to a get a bit more comfortable in accepting who I am and what I can do. So hopefully I won’t get laughed out of blogspot with my ‘skillz’.

Anyways, I will leave off with this opener for now. And with this little quiz result.




Your Nail Polish Color is Black



How you're unique: There's nothing about you that isn't unique



Why your style rocks: You are a total indie chick... and you can pull it off



What this color says about you: "I'm a trendsetter and don't care what anyone else is doing!"
