Back from the dead. . .

Well, that's what it feels like to me. I haven't touched this blog in well over a year. I better start catching up.

I'm back World, and I'm ready to go!

I have a new nail idea in my next post. Hang on tight everyone!

September's a French tip month for me.

Yes. I'm alive.

Sorry guys. I just graduated from college, am in the process of moving, and am also hunting for a job. And you know how it is for job interviews: NO funky nails. I normally would tell people to piss off, but I kinda need money, haha! So boring nails it is. Actually, my nails have been bare for about a week now and boy does it feel weird. I've chewed them down to nubbins! Gah! Damn you life, making me grow up!

Geez. . .this took long enough!

Whew! Busy, busy week! I got tired of wearing dark and shimmery colors (which is basically the entire collection of the dark Alter Ego set), so I busted out some of my Ulta polishes. First up is Mint Condition.

It's actually a little brighter in real life. It was very refreshing to wear a spring appropiate color. While I was at it, I tried to remember the last time I did a water marble design on myself. . . It was quite a while back. So, marble it is!

Let's see, I used three colors all by Ulta: Mint Condition, Blue Streak, and Celebutante.The result was really pretty if you ignored all the smudges and little bubbles.

Damn you bubbles!

Just a minor FYI: My next couple of weeks are going to be pretty. . . uh. . . busy, to say the least, so I probably won't be posting much. But don't freak out, I'll be back soon enough!

No stuff like free stuff!

My new set of *cough* free *cough* Bundle Monster plates actually came in quite a few days ago, but I had just painted my nails and didn't want to remove my mani right away. So I waited a few days. Good lord, the wait was freaking hard!

I decided on my base color- 909 Alter Ego from Color Club. (How cute, a polish named Alter Ego IN the alter ego set. . .)

I had actually used this color about a month ago on my toes, and I noticed it was a bit sheer (as in needs-four-coats-for-coverage sheer). So, I prepped my nails this time around with a coat of nude colored polish. Well, close to nude; maybe a brown nude? Whatever. I only used two coats of Alter Ego.

This polish looks pretty boring indoors, but it's reflective as hell outdoors. Made me think of aluminum foil. It's got so many different glitter colors in it- brown, gold, pink, silver, and I think I see green too.

It's neither a holo nor duochrome polish. It's just alright, so I snazzed it up with a Bundle Monster stamp! Plate BM-203 to be exact!

Oh yes. I already like my new plates. The full finger images fit my thumb; how freaking sweet is that?!

I'm facing a dilemma here- too many images and not enough nails. *Shakes head* Why wasn't I born with more fingers?!

Let's party under cover!

Yes. Let's. And I shall wear Color Club's 913 Ulterior Motive. It's a glittery number from the keep it under cover Alter Ego set.

The photo doesn't do it justice. It's not color accurate at all. It has more of a blue/purple tint to it in real life. Probably because there's blue glitter in the polish. Along with magenta glitter. It's got a really pleasant sparkle to it. As if you can see.

I wore this color "as is" for a day, and then I had to add something to it. Something as in a really dark maroon stripe.

Wore that "as is" for another day, then added one more thing- a stamp!

Notice that I'm only showing you my right hand. Why? Well. . .lining up the stamp was much harder with my non-dominant hand (yeah, I'm a lefty). The result was a bit sloppier than I liked. I mean, my stamp didn't even land near the stripe! I need more practice.

This must be Deja Vu

I couldn't stop thinking about stamping a pink kitten to imitate Mew. I decided that I just had to redo my Pokeball mani!

My free hand skills still suck though. I painted my middle fingers last, and I sort of regret my decision to do Mew (he's supposed to be "flying" around with silver stars). . .I just see a pink cat. D'oh!

Man, it's deja vu all over again. But hey, it's a super fun mani to wear!

Guess who was one of the winners for Bundle Monster's nail art contest? That's right, me! Muahahahaha! (It's supposed to be an evil laugh) I placed 18th, Bee-yatches!

Ok, all gloating put aside, I'm really happy that I won. Thank you to anyone who took the time to vote! However, I have to say something. Most of the winners (including myself) only had so-so designs. Seriously. If you've taken the time to look at all the entries, the damn good ones didn't win. I kinda feel bad for winning. . .kinda. Though if any of you are following Bundle Monster's fan page. . .there are some pretty sore losers out there. I'm not going to link you guys to it, but you are free to take a look for yourself. It's almost a jab in the side how bitter one some of them is are. Ouch. Cry me a fucking river. Don't enter a contest if you're going to come out bitching. It ruins the mood for everyone, winners and losers alike.
