To Infinity....!

I got my China Glaze Metro "Downtown" collection today and decided to try out Skyscraper. LOVE it except that it's a tad gloopy-gloppy; but, I think a little thinner will handle that.

More of the collection to come soon!

I haven't forgotten my blog. I still plan to post.

Things got crazy last week, so crazy that I actually only have polish on 3 nails right now. And, well, obviously that leaves me little to write about.

Posts & pictures soon! PROMISE.

Baby Blues

What a drag of a week! But, this weekend is my baby shower, so instead of doing work at work (pfft!), I did my nails.

How come I never see the imperfections and dire need for clean up until I take a picture? Oh well! Happy FRIDAY!

Harri @ trailerhoodchic sent me her franken a while back and I finally got a chance to try it. And, I have to say, I love it! (The picture here isn't fantastic, but I'm at work and posting sounded like more fun than continuing to edit the book I'm working on, [yes, that god awful book in the background of the pic.] so deal with it!) Back. On. Topic. The franken reminds me of a melted Hershey's bar. It's brown with an almost copper shimmer to it. Thank you, Potter, for sending me this!! Accent finger is the spectraflair topcoat that's magically made its way to so many of our hands. Love!

Ok, pre-clean-up, but the color looks better.

This was my first time using Savina polishes and I love them! (Charcoal Sparkle and Purple Hologram for the accent. Maybe not the best match-up, but I wanted to try more than one, haha). I'm glad a got a few of these polishes, so thanks to the PAA chicks who mentioned them recently. I just realized that my TV is reflecting on my thumb. HAH!

Now on to my newest issue: the skin around my nails. It's never "peeled" like this before. Help me, help me! Suggestions, snide remarks, products to help, I'll take anything at this point. It's one of the reasons I haven't posted much, they don't look pretty. MAKE ME PRETTY!

American chicks, hope you all have a wonderful holiday! Non-American American for the day and take Monday off. ;)
