Ok Guys. So, here's the deal. I've really gotten into my crafts again, even making things and selling them. Which is pretty awesome. Sad part is that it is what has taken me away from doing nail posts like I want to. That being said...I HAVE A RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME GIVEAWAY PLANNED IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE!!!!

Some of the things you will see? Nail polish, Obviously. But a few other little things. I don't want to give away the big ticket item, but trust me when I say you will love it. It cuts down on your drying time like WOAH! AND I use it at the salon myself.

I'm also looking at how to consolidate this blog and my old crafting blog. Once I figure that out, the giveaway will begin! :D

A Failed Blogger

I'm trying to get better at posting more. I REALLY am. I've just been trying to get used to my new schedules and playing with all my new little toys. In fact, there will be a post up soon about some of my really fancy new toys! :D And I'm SOOO excited for then you have no idea.

But I've also been working on some headband designs. Yeah, I'm a crafty little thing. hehe But, if you are interested, you can check out the website that my roommate and I started where we are selling lots of pretty things. Tipically Lackasdaisycal is our site and named by our two dogs. Yeah, we're those kinds of people.So I've been working on new designs for sale as well. I need more days in my life than I have right now. I'm sure many of us feel that way, though. There will be a giveaway soon for the website, so keep an eye out in the near future.

I will also be doing a nail polish blog sale soon, so be on the look out for that too. I have a ridiculous amount of polish and really need to clean it out. I'm a hoarder to the 10th degree, that's for sure.

But to tease your palettes a bit, I wanted to include at least one picture. So here is some of the first nail art designs I've ever done. Yes, the picture is pretty craptastic, but I'm still pretty proud of most of them.

I'm not dead yet!

Good Golly Miss Molly!

I am so ridiculously sorry about not posting in my blog the last two months. The only excuse I have is that real life kicked it into gear and I just lost track of everything that I wasn't trying to get done on a time line.

A quick update on life, then?

Since my last update I've been trying to get my services done at school. I ended up having to come back to audit for the first week and a half of this semester, which I am still doing. And Due to snow and Ice at the beach (You know, an area where no one is ready for that dreaded and most dirtiest of S words), no one is really equipped with dealing with it. So that means yesterday and today school was canceled. Sucks to be me because I needed that time to do the work. But I'm hoping something can happen between now and then. Everyone cross your fingers for me.

And the main reason that I want to get out of that school so fast?


It is at an awesome salon and day spa and I will be doing my 6 month apprenticeship there once I get my temporary State Board License. Then, once I a done with that, I shall be the official nail tech at the salon! :D I'm soooo super excited about it all and I can't help to share product reviews with you guys and everything because I will be using such awesome equipment and products there.

Christmas was great and I've spoiled myself with tons of nail polishes. I have SUCH an addiction, its ridiculous, really. I bought ALL of the China Glaze Tronica collection. SUCH pretty colors and they look awesome with a matte top coat. I also have six of the colors from China Glaze's Anchors Away collection. I even got into a bit of a tiff with one of the ladies at Cosmo Prof about how they only had 6 colors, but the collection had a total of 12. She didn't believe me because they only showed 6 in their sale paper. Whatever, I suppose. I'm gonna see if they have the rest at Sally's to decide if I want them or not. Sucks because they will be about a dollar more expensive there. BUT the 6 colors that I do have are absolutely fantastic. I will try to swatch them at some point. I'm in LOVE with White Cap. Just, if you find it. Buy it. Its awesome. It adds this element of silvery-gold shimmer to your polish and its just beautiful. I also love Life preserver and Sea Spray.

That's all I have for now. I promise to have some pictures in the near future and to really work better at posting in this baby because I really do enjoy it.
