The Way I Are

By Timbaland featuring Keri Hilson & D.O.E. I used to listen to this song everyday repeat x 5.. Now I still enjoy it, but in very small doses. But D.O.E's part always makes me chuckle!!

SORRY FOR THE ABSENCE!!

I don't really have an excuse other than the fact that I have been feeling tres blah and every look I have done with my nails has just been terribad. Embarrassingly so. I finally did this look and feel a sconch better about myself, haha!

I used a tutorial that JulieG713 posted HERE. I was a smidge disappointed when it was based off of a Rihanna look, but it is still amazing and I just had to copy it! JulieG posts some pretty nice nail looks. I also find that she doesn't try to confuse people when explaining things. (I have seriously watched thousands of YT videos, and some of the nail tutorials could be explained so much easier.. I understand them, but I could see someone trying to learn and just giving up all hope.. When they shouldn't! /endrant).

I think it is time for a new layout here.. I will have to work on that..

ALSO! This is pretty much breaking news.. OCTOBER IS A DAY AWAY! WOO! My favourite!! I love that October is pretty much Halloween themed through the whole month. Time to decorate, pick out pumpkin patterns, decide on a candy theme.. And of course.. nail art! Yay!!

I hope everyone had a good September, sorry I wasn't around too much this month!!

Bad Things

By Jace Everett. I had always considered watching 'True Blood', but never actually started. Then my best friend told me to absolutely watch it. So I started the other night. Almost through the first season. I am in love/obsessed/UGH with this show! AND! I absolutely love the opening credits song.. I hate country music, but there are the few gems like this song and some off of the 'From Dusk Til Dawn' soundtrack that creep me out and make me LOVE them. Woo.. well.. on to the postage..

I used this tutorial by QueenofBlendingMUA for these nails.. Although I changed it up a smidge because I am not a *big* fan of rhinestones.. Scope the vid out HERE.

I had been thinking about using Breakin' for awhile.. But couldn't really think of anything to do with orange until October.. Glad I found this. I had wanted to use ORLY Calypso Breeze as the blue, but I use it quite often.. So figured I would give Sexy in the City another try. I actually really love this.

And as always, sorry for my lack of cleaning up.. Always when I finish a look I am super eager to post it up after it dries.

Ok, back to 'True Blood'.. Sigh. Does anyone else watch this show? If so, what do you think about it??

Serious

By Duffy. It is nice.. The beginning reminds me of an olden days girl group/backup singers.. Same with the chorus!

Oh, and side note, this is my 30th post - woo!!

I have been meaning to post about this for a bit.. But now seems like a good time. I bought a different storage unit for my nail polish stuffs. Don't get me wrong, I loved the other one.. But what I didn't like was having the polishes laying on their sides and seeing the mix seperate.. Ew.

So, here is the new unit..

The old unit is still up top.. I cannot get rid of it.. it now houses some of my art supplies - ie brushes and pencils.

Annnd on to my fail nails from yesterday..


Photobucket
Click To Enlarge.. Actually.. Don't!!


I saw this idea on youtube once and thought I would give it a try.. I don't really like it only because of the colours I chose. I think I will give this one a go around Christmastime.. I think it would work nicely with Christmasy colours!!

Tag: I Think You're An Awesome Girl Award




I was reading Danielle's post at The Diva's Polish and noticed she had mentioned my name/blog at the bottom.. So I obviously must fill this bad boy out!!

Rules are simple.. I have to share 10 random facts and then list 10 blogs I enjoy reading.. Here goes!!

10 Random Facts:

1. I really, really, really, REALLY hate it when people say 'highschool is/will be the best four years of my life!!!' Seriously? If you are going to base the rest of your life of highschool, I would say you're a sad, sad person. (Makes it sound like I had a tough time in 'hikeschool', but I didn't. I enjoyed it. But I am going to say that there are better times than those four years).

2. I LOVE movies. Almost to excess. I love movie nights with friends, movie nights with the family, movie nights with myself, I love going to the movies.. ETC! It is a really disturbing thing when you get to act as a human IMDB. (See #8). I also really love video games. Yeeup.

3. Reading is probably one of the greatest abilities a person can have. I love reading.

4. I broke my right leg in 3 places when I was 6. Still paying for that.. URGH! It is never fun to just be hustlin' around and having your knee give out. AWKward. And also my nose when I was 7. Good times. Good stories.

5. I have a really strange taste in music. I like everything from jazz, to rap, to 80s (♥ 80s!!!), to techno, to screamo.. I like it all. Except country. Ew.

6. Double entendres make my life so much better. (I am a nerd/dork/geek.. I know this).

7. Someday I do want to travel around a bit. What will base my destination locations is zoos and museums. Mostly zoos. I love them!!

8. I plan to write the scariest screenplay turned movie ever. I want it to be what 'The Exorcist' was back in the day. I want it to be so gross and terrifying that it gets kicked out of the theatres. It will happen!

9. I have four notebooks that I use to write down important information, yet when I need said important information - I can never find it!

10. I do not sleep well during the night. I sleep better during the day/not at all. No idea why.

Now on to the 10 Blogs I ♥ reading:
(in no particular order.. also, I have to say, I love all the blogs I follow - there is a reason I clicked 'follow' eh!)

Danielle (The Diva's Polish)

Mary (Body and Soul)

Deez Nails (Deez Nails)

Tiffany (Polish Me Pretty)

Kae (The Hungry Asian)

Eki (A Little Bit Of Eki)

Kym (Bee Creative)

I Don't Feel Like Dancin'

By Scissor Sisters. This is seriously a guilty pleasure song.. I think if I was really down and this song happened to play, I would not be able to NOT smile!

So.. as I have probably mentioned a time or three - youtube is one of my favourite places to find inspiration for nail art. Lately I have done two looks that were more difficult.. And I absolutely hated them!! I didn't even take photos for others to gawk at.. I know.. SO rude of me! I will try them again someday..

Anyways.. I randomly came across a video by ThoseHappyDays.. The video is titled A little part... and at around the 20 second mark you will see the nails that I recreated.

I like them. They are simple to do, and have a nice look to them when they are finished. I was going to use totally different colours.. But I thought back to my last two fail attempts.. And decided to stick close to the colours used. Now I have nice nails for my managing shift tonight! Yay!

OH! And I am up to 20 followers!! WOO!! Thank you all so much for actually taking a glance at what I post - really appreciate it! I think once I get myself in a more.. "comfortable" financial situation, I will have to do a giveaway or something!!!

Have a super Thursday!

Paper Planes

By M.I.A.. I really did like this song, but I liked it before it was SUPER popular and used on the Pineapple Express trailer and then used on a bunch of other things. Ahh well!

ANYWAYS! It is good to be back and have an update for all of you! I think I mentioned before about my crazy sleeping and just lethargic behaviour.. I was finally starting to feel normal, then something happened on Tuesday, and I went back into a serious funk. I am tired of being tired. Life sucks, blahblahblah, etc, etc, cry me a river eh?!

Last night (Thursday) as I was happily watching Big Brother.. I was like 'I should do my nails!' and I did. I also have to say.. I haven't snipped my nails in approximately two weeks, and the growth is AWESOME! Annnd.. this is nailage where I actually would say my right hand > my left hand. Scope the photos..

And I made a mistake on the ring finger.. Well, no one *really* notices it until I point it out. Are any of you bad compliment takers as well? Anytime someone compliments me on anything, I will always point out a flaw. I can never just be like 'awe, thanks so much!'.. Well, in real life anyways. Guh.

I really like this hand (my right) better on this design. I have no idea what I was going for.. I just grabbed my black SilkLine and went to town. I figure this is what my mind is seeing lately. Gibberish! Oh.. And I'm wearing Orly Teeny Bikini, which is a gorgeous colour all on its own. Plus I can tell people I am sporting a teeny bikini.. heh.

When I got to work this afternoon, the admin assistant told me my Avon order was in. YAY! I ordered a bent eyeliner brush (I have been oogling these bad boys for a long time now!)

But I didn't want to *just* order the brush.. So I ordered a satin gel liner as well. I own MAC Blacktrack Fluidline, so I decided to go with a brown.. More day time appropriate. The colour name is Brown Pearl. When I first opened it.. I wasn't impressed.. But then I did a swatch at work (didn't snag a photo though).. BUT!

I am not sure if you can pick it up on here.. Or if it just looks greasy.. But it is SPARKLEY! WOO! I love sparkley glittery stuffs. I just bought a Lise Watier Glitter liner in Amethyste (purple).. I also have Smokey Gold.. Anyways.. Love glitterness! I think I need more sparkley glittery polishes.. Well.. Sorry for the super update! I figure I will blog, then go pass out before work again.

Have a super weekend all!!
