First Day of Sophomore year! AND the OLYMPICS!

Today was my first day back to school, and as a sophomore! How exciting! I kind of like my classes this year, but it's gonna take some getting used to, for sure.

It's also time for the 2012 London Olympics! I wish I had time to watch the events I want to watch!  But luckily, I have it all recorded.  So, in spirit of the 30th Olympiad, here are my olympic theme nails!

On my thumb, I have red, white, and blue sponging with silver "USA".
Then a simplified American flag.
Then the Olympic rings, which doubles as the Olympic flag.
The Union Jack, since London is hosting the Games.
"2012" since that's the year!

Instead of 2012, I was planning on writing "XXX" for the 30, but that seemed too...special.

And since I got lazy, red creme polish with silver stars, medium blue, and fine silver glitters over!


That's all for now<3

Dusty Hunting-without the hunting

So yesterday I went on another date to the mall. Which included going to Ulta. Which ended up with this post.  So let's just take a look at what I got...

First, I got three silver capped OPIs! From Ulta!  I feel like no polish lovers shop at my ulta because I can find lots of HTFs and whatnot.  They were JUST SITTING THERE in the OPI display, where the boyfriend found them.

The three he bought from Ulta..
DS Reserve

DS Mystery

DS Extravagance
Actually, while I was in Berkeley for NYLF Med, I went on a date to Telegraph and found a nail store.  They had their polish display with their polish for sale, and I spotted two silver caps. Needless to say we fast-walked in there and bought DS Radiance and Magic.

So I have 5 of the DS polishes!

Then, he found the ORLYs and pulled up my wishlist and grabbed these:


Halley's Comet

Fowl Play

And some beauties from Zoya!

(with flash)




It's so fun going shopping with him because I can grab what I want.  In fact I'm almost forced to buy them. He tried to get me to buy ALL the Layla Holos. Silly boy.  I had a good day!  I love him<3

In a galaxy far, far away...

Thumbs up for Star Wars references! It may have been a lame one but still.  Anyways, here's some galaxy nails that I have revisited! I think I've gotten better!  What I really like about this kind of nail is that you really can't mess up. Which is a very good thing.

All of these are now with flash.

Close-up of the spiral galaxy on my thumb!

There are many tutorials on Google and Youtube for this, if you so please.

Some nail sets...

So I've made these for a special person's birthday! I only have made a few so far, and they're my first, so I'm hoping they get good reactions! What do you think?

Candy drips.

 Purple lace w/square studs.

Sponge/striped/glitter tips w/ stars.

Sneak peak at some bear/failed Rilakkuma nails!

I think I'll start making more these and maybe selling them, if I get good enough and if people have an interest. Even if it's only to my friends. It's an interesting concept!

I have no clue as to why these are sideways..

As for my right hand:

4th of July!

So these were SUPPOSED to be posted on the Fourth of July and I have no idea what happened..
But I guess better late than never, right?

So to the nails! I realized how much I dislike the idea of having ONE design for an occasion. So much that I will think up 10 different designs. I might be insane. But it's alright.

Left hand from thumb to pinky: American flag, glittery red white and blue sponging, red silver and blue sequins, rwb splatter, rwb stripes. I really hated my pinky nail and was always going to change it, but never got around to it.

Right hand thumb to pinky: red white and blue polka dots, rwb stripes with star glitters, half red/half blue with white crackle, rwb sponge tip with "USA", blue and silver glitters with stars over a red base.

Sunlight pictures!
