GLADvent Calendar Countdown + 600th Post

Hey everyone! First off, this is my 600th post.. where does the time go?! I feel like I was just writing my first post a few days ago (we will not discuss the amount of years, thanks!) Thanks for sticking around, or just popping in quick to see a post here and there. Even bigger thanks for following me on instagram or facebook.. or even twitter -- all of those fun links are on the side. (Shameless plug, I am sorry!) BUT! My 600th post is not why we are here today. No, I am here to discuss my opening of the GLADvent calendar from Cuter Cuticles.

I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat OPI You're Such A Budapest Morgan Taylor Glitter & Gold MND Vinyls Sponge Nail Experiments Liquid Latex Tweezers Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I used the sponge method to apply the gold glitter, and again, just obsessed with that method!

Sometimes Only An F-Bomb Will Do!

Hey everyone! Sorry for the M.I.Aness. Excuses? Work. Moving. Basically life.. that, and my computer is being a red-shirted ass, but hey.. everything has its 'off' days. My mani today is the perfect mix of how I feeling at this particular moment. It is all colourful and cheery.. with a nice little 'fuck' decal thrown in. Because that is how I feel right meow. Cheery, but kind of like 'fuck' at the same time. Also, I finally tried the whole 'put your glitter polish on a sponge, and sponge it on the nail' technique. Um, love! I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow Nails Inc Baker Street Finger Paints 15 Minutes of Fame OPI Alpine Snow OPI Color So Hot It Berns Orly Turn It Up Decal from My Nails Did Sponge Tweezers Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I just love this!
