So, is a hard thing to try and post every single day in your blog. I don't see how the 365 people do this kind of thing! But I'm still trying. And that's got to account for something.

Today, I took my hands into school to show my professors. While we love each individual nail, we all agreed that it was just too much. That's when we decided to simplify the design and go from there. And with that, I went about how I spent the remainder of my day.

First, it took about 30 minutes to get all of the nail polish I had on the nails off. Something I'm not looking forward to do tomorrow in between cleaning things. Once the polish was off, I sat down with Rachel and proceeded to fall in love with the nail file drill thinger. Whatever its called, I flippin love it! My friend Craig was joking around that it was scary for me to be using any type of power tool. To which, I gave him an insane look, revved up the drill, and held back the desire to evil laugh. And then I told him I was good with power tools thanks to the years of building stages.

Once the edges of the acrylics were filed, it was time to paint a base color and let it dry. And was timing time. Thankfully, I made it in about 30-35 minutes, which is great and gives me plenty of time to clean things up a bit. And to be honest, I'm super excited about that. Like, ridiculous excited about that. My fellow students were really supportive and I have so many people that want me to do certain bits on their nails. LOL I think I know how I will be spending my last day of Cosmetology this semester.

Now, here is where you would think I would post a picture of the final design like I said I would in the last post.

Well...I'm NOT! HAHAHA!!!!

But that's because I want to wait until after the competition to post it. Not that I think anyone will steal it. I could care less about that. But I'm so tickled with how it all looks that I just want to save it all for a post about the competition.

That, and my head is bothering me, so I think it's about time I pass out for the night. Tomorrow I shall update you all on my recent purchases. :D Because everyone needs to know more on the fact that I really need to join Nail Polish Anonymous.


  1. Can't wait to see them!!! Good luck! Or should I say break a leg?

  2. Aw man. I can't lie, I was really looking forward to that design. LOL.

    And I think any kind of filing thing is ceramics, we have a shaver thingy, and I used it to accidentally destroy a jewelry box that I made. I only meant to take it down an inch or two, but ten minutes later, it was about three inches high (from eight), there was clay dust everywhere, and my teacher was snatching the shaver out of my hand. I don't even remember what happened.

    But ANYWAY. Have a good night and good luck in the contest!!

  3. Fer, thank you so much. Though, I don't know if you would say break a leg for this or not. But coming from a theatre background, I thank you. hehe

    BWAHAHAH! CB, that sounds like my entire life right there. I love this kind of stuff and it really is sooooo easy to get carried away. Thank you so much for the added luck! :D
