New Shoes!!!


My new shoes came but I forgot to make a post about them. Oops. Well here they are. From Torrid's website. I don't have time for a super post but I had to squee to the world. I love wedges. These are comfy as hell, too. Thanks for carrying 12W, Torrid.

I've decided to buy myself one or two things per pay period. I'm happy to have those shoes. Now, to order something else...

New Gel Nail Action

Pink = Gossip Girl; Purple= Star Burst
So I did my nails at like midnight last night. Thank goddess for gel polish. I can't believe I ever did stonework with regular polish. For the record, all polish is Gelish save for the black stripes and polka dots, and the silver sparkle stripes.

I couldn't decide what I wanted, so I just stuck to common color. I like the way the Index fingers have the half circle of clear at the bottom. I think if I could do them over, I would switch my ring and middle finger designs, then replace those stripes with dots matching the other nails.

So each coat was done at 2min cure, but the topcoat was done at a 5min cure to be safe. I'm really happy with how secure the stones feel. As always, I love the shiiiiine.

Nail Inspiration

Howdy. I absolutely love this page of Nail Venus. These are the colours I wear most often. I typically give myslf gel manicures and the top 3 colours I use are:
  • Exhale
  • Gossip Girl 
  • High Voltage 
  • Star Burst 
  • Red Baroness (CND Shellac) 

All but the last are made by Hand & Nail Harmony for their Gelish line. I prefer Gelish over Shellac. I think there's more in the bottle and a little goes a long way (with both brands). They also have more colour options. The next shades I want are Reserve, Glamour Queen, Sweet Chocolate, and Twinkle. I have some similar colours in standard polish (from China Glaze and OPI), so I'm not in a huge rush. So long as I do a gel base and top coat, I'm okay. I just prefer a 100% gel basic mani because it's faster. Of course nail art elements like dotting and pinstriping can be done in standard polish. I do that whenever I can't sleep lol.

So anyway, I think I'll be replicating the stripey red/pink/black/silver set (row 2, set 3) this weekend. If you don't see a blog post, that means I farted it up!
