X Marks The Spot

Hey everyone!

I told myself not to post until the morning, but by the time morning shows up, I might not even remember all the ding-dang work I have just done - so, while I am awake and working on future posts, why not get it rolling right meow!

I have spent the last hour editing/watermarking pictures dating back to April/May.. and I only listened to THIS SONG, and I am not even remotely tired of it. That, and it made this daunting task that I have put off for months fly by! Yay for having content!

Ok.

On to the good stuff!

I am involved with a crew of amazing Canadian gals, and this is my second swap with them - what we do is we pick $$ groups and then the gals in charge distribute nails, and it is a surprise, and you buy polish and goodies for that person.. and then surprise! They get your goodies in mail, and you get goodies from someone, basically goodies for everyone!

Now, the extremely rad part about this group is that some of the gals are indie shop owners and give sweet discount codes (not that I would need a discount code to support the solid work they do, but hey, save some, spend more.. right?!)

Anyways!

One of the gals runs My Nails Did and creates and sells vinyls. Of course I had to get some of them. They are amaaaazing!

With that being said, I am terrible with nail vinyls. I was so stoked for the X vinyls, and only got 1.5 nails to work.. so.. my thumb on my left hand looks exquisite! The rest I had to freehand, because, fail.


I used:
  • Essence The Gel Base Coat
  • Essence The Gel Don't Be Shy!
  • Essence The Gel Wild White Ways
  • Essence The Gel Top Coat
  • Sponge
  • Little Brush
  • X Nail Stencil (just got for my thumb/sort of for index)
  • OPI My Favorite Ornament

My grand plan was to do a gradient (success), then lay the stencil down, and reverse the gradient on top (fail x 9), then paint some gold.. I just ended up hand painting errythang. Which is fine.. but that thumb though! But hey, if you don't look at my thumb, it does not look like a complete fail, right? Please say I am right!

That is all for this evening. Look for more content constantly coming at you - legit promise!
