Thursday, March 31, 2011 haul (no pics yet)

I have a new mani to post (on the weekend), just need to upload the pics.

Thursday night i went on a shopping spree...well not really spree...two stores but it did put a small dent in the pocketbook.  I'll take pics of my new haul - purse, necklace, scarf, 3 dawgs, 2 sweaters, 2 wrap t-shirts, 1 shell.  I shouldn't have gotten it all but it was all on sale.  Dawgs were last season stuff and Cleo had some sale rake stuff with an additional 50% off, hence why i went and purchased a purse, necklace and scarf (which also was discounted)

And i do have some new nailpolish colors i purchased in the last months.  I should do some swatches/reviews soon.

Thank you to Nails by Asami i found a plaid design i wanted to try out.  I would change some things next time i do this mani. Like not using a wide brush for the first stripe. Might try out the Kiss Nail pen instead of the paint.  I would also take more time in doing the cross stripe as most of mine where diagonal. and i would try different combos of colors next time.

Base - Rimmel Black Satin

Fat Silver Stripe - Sally hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Celeb City
White Stripes - Kiss Nail Art Paint

My Private Jet & CND Copper Shimmer

This week i wore the Broadway nails, around Wednesday the tips were starting to wear so it was time for some polish.  Here is OPI, My Private Jet - i'm not sure what version of My Private Jet i have but it's black with shimmery sparkles.

more true looking color

On the other hand i topped it with CND Copper Shimmer - it totally changed the color, my personal preference was the original MPJ without the copper shimmer.

I was really impressed with the broadway nails i applied them on Sunday and it was only Friday when my thumb nails started to pop off with slight pressure.  I'm sure i could have glued on the thumbs again and keep them on for the weekend but i was ready for them to be removed.

I recommend the purchase of  the acetone jar of polish remover.   I tried to use the cotton balls with acetone, but it took way to long to remove.  So i started to force the nails to pop off before i acetone-d the other hand.  Don't do that as i've now damaged those nails. (see below).  I should have watched this youtube video by beechbum before removing my fake nails too.

the ring finger has the huge white line almost the whole way across the middle and finger have damage but not so bad.
middle finger, oh i haven't shaped the nails yet either sorry looks awful.
damage on pinky

Might be offline for a little bit, have to hook up my wireless internet modem tomorrow night, as the roommate is moving out, she purchased her own place.  i will have the townhouse to myself for a while.  Hopefully only for the rest of the month, so far no interest on someone to share accommodations with me.  Wish me luck in finding a good roommate.
