Merry Christmas!!!!

Ladies it is finally here!! So I'm actually posting today from my new ASUS transformer pad that my amazing boyfriend got me for Christmas. I wasn't expecting this awesome pad i knew he kept talking about the kindle hd but it was all hype for this amazing pad. If you don't know this pad is actually a huge competitor for the ipad lol so I'm super happy.

Another reason why I'm posting from my new pad is also because I'm back home for Christmas. I didn't get the chance to post from my laptop or edit and take pictures so today's post is strictly from the pad.

I used so many polishes for this that will have to pay that list later because im not there. Mind you also that this man picture is taken after a day of wear and tear from work. I couldn't take it sooner because of work. But here are some pictures.

So i also show my right hand for giggles because I must face it,i suck at drawing with my left hand.

Well hope you liked the post i hoped you all love it.
Merry Christmas!!!!!

SNOW!!! finally!

Wow guys! Life has been busy. I been trying to make time for my post but that's not working too well. But I'm finally done with the First semester of my University journey!! I didn't do to well, granted one of my classes was taught by a complete idiot....i should have dropped it and took it this next semester but oh well...next fall works to.

So there is finally snow up north of Arizona means for me it is colder meaning,......it finally feels like Christmas!! Hot Cocoa and warm coffee drinks from Starbucks Galore!!! I Love it so i decided to have a snow inspired Mani for you all so here are the pics!!!

So i cleaned up my Mani but I'm sure i messed some up a bit close to my cuticles so i apologize :).

I used: Ulta  "Envy" with Spoiled "Shaken snow globe", and Markwins "Rubyish" with Orly "Shining Star"

Close up of Orly "shining Star"

Spoiled "Shaken snow globe" close up!

So if you have snow near you....you may send it to me! Ha Ha Just kidding!! But i would love to see pics! ha ha Anyways i want to try to get some more post out before Christmas because i will be going home Christmas Eve so i probably wont be able to post much....NEED FAMILY TIME!! ha hah

Happy Tuesday!!!

Well this week has been a crappy week so far. I have a full schedule this week!! That's not the crappy part either. I work about 36 hours this week and my only days off are Tue and Thur, that's so not the crappy part either. Then i have my finals this week, thanking god that only two are online and are due by Saturday and next Tuesday, once again...not the crappy part..

The crappy part.....is what has been happening to me at work...nothing too bad but just unlucky. First a guy had called my work after i had cashed him out hours before claiming i hadn't put his item in the bag when i was sure i had....after video review it was confirmed i had indeed put it in the bag therefore the guy had probably lost it when it was in his possession.......O_O

Then yesterday my drawer was short $50 bucks!!!! WTF!!!!! how does that happen!!! I don't even know how that could have happened:(. Still don't know what happened but i cant loose my job.....i need to pay bills...and i finally just got a great job that i love:(.

So ya just been a busy week.:( Pray for me guys or send happy thoughts my way!

ANYWAYS!!! to my post today...thank you for listening:). In a rush one day for work..i noticed my polish was chipping bad and i didn't have time to paint them and let them dry, let alone take the "Glitter" polish off....no time..

So i remembered the Impress nails a long while ago because after seeing the first commercial of these beauties i thought hey why not try. So i got them....

Overall.....I love them!!! They are great emergency nails. The only thing i didn't like about them were the fact that they don't have a good range or sizes so it can be a little too short or little too long....granted that is the case for normally just 1 or two nails. But i think they are great for just an emergency. I got a lot of complements on them and I'm sure the ladies that liked them, they will be heading to the nearest drug store for them. I also heard they look like gel nails, which I'm a huge fan of, so i was happy.

So let me finally show you some pictures....

So here are what the boxes look like if you didn't know. The front of the bottle actually has like a display of a set but i threw it away before taking a picture.....sorry...

 As you can see my natural nails were a little longer on some than others....sorry again ha ha....we don't judge here right? ha ha.

 This was another bugger...the fact that there is a gap sucks when you happen to get things stuck in them...but other than that the sticky that keeps them there is amazing!! and it covers a good majority of the nails.

This is what i meant about the sizing....they don't quit cover the whole nail...but still good for emergency.

So i had put these on before i had gotten ready for work. so i had them on while doing my hair and makeup and even washing my hands...and they stayed on through it on. I wore them for a good two days doing everything i normally do so overall great product...i totally recommend them :).

Til next time guys...

Later :)

It's OVER!!!!!!! Giveaway CLOSED!!

Well something better than this semester ending........My Contest is over!!!!! I reached 100 followers!! any wow i feel horrible for it. My blog has really just been sitting here, so sad:(. And it has been gaining and loosing followers. But ya it sucks but oh well. LIFE HAPPENS!!

As you all may remember i had mentioned me moving up north for school because i had just got my Associates and was moving on to bigger and better things know as a University and living on my own (well with my boyfriend and his sister). This is my first semester her and it kicked my butt!!!! I pretty much failed a class (saying this without really seeing my final grade). I hated that class and i cant wait to take it with a better prepared teacher. No offense i understand PHD grades and how they aren't totally great the first year but this guy was ridiculous!!!

Enough about him because i can seriously go allllllllllll DAY!! my boyfriend will tell you i can because poor thing has to hear it from me crying in frustration to wanting to punch a whole in the wall.

ANYWAYS!!! We got off to a rocky start up here. My boyfriend and I had amazing job that would sustain our living when we moved but we had to transfer to closer one.....well....i got to transfer and they promised me enough hours.....but when i got here....boy did they lie. I went like a month with no hours or at lease 4 hours in a month. My poor family had to help me pay rent and bills. I thank god for them. Then my boyfriend.....ugh just call him Jeffrey ha ha. Jeffrey tried to call his job and they had no job for him....poor thing was miserable.

No worries though!! Eventually i got a better job that i love soooo much and get way more hours and he got a great job as well with more hours than me!! So we have finally gotten back on our feet. Since mid November we been doing great!!

The downside.....with all the depression of the crap that went on....i rarely did my nails....if i did it was a solid color....if i was more excited it would be a solid and a glitter. I HAVE NOT bought polishes or nail art since AUGUST!! So I'm SOOOO behind in the nail world.:(. Every time i see pictures of girls nails with this pretty polish I'm like "OMG WHEN DID THAT COME OUT!??!!?" and they be like "WOW this is old like September!" :( sad stuff guys.

But I'm getting back into it. I want to do a lot during my winter break because I'm taking more classes this next semester with a class starting half way through next semester.

BUT WITH THE GIVEAWAY!!! Today I'm going to look through all the data and pick someone today so tomorrow i would like to announce the winner! I'm so excited!! along with the winner, i want to show a picture of the updated gift as well. So Keep your fingers crossed!!! Hope i can stay back for you all.

I also want to try doing Vlogs (video blogs) for you guys too because i feel it will help me when I'm in school. So let me know guys!! let me know!!

Love you guys!!!!

Til next time!

Delayed post...

Hey guys !!
This weekend my family and i took a little vacation before school starts up again and i move away. So i couldn't really blog because we left Friday. I had did a Mani but it came out okish but not good enough to post:). But i broke some nails and i couldn't change them til yesterday. Then i came back on Sunday night exhausted. Then money... -_-... This week is not even over and it feels so long!!!! here is what happen so far...

Monday: my tire popped off my car while i was driving!! i was driving to work but by the time we were done with the whole mess....it was 12 and i would have just gotten off of work. If your really interested ill do a post on it because its terribly long story:(.

Tue: My accelerator messed up and my car was going all kind of crazy when i burly pressed on the gas and when i put it in park.

Wed: well today....i had my older brother take me to work and pick me up because honestly i don't want to drive that car anymore and i don't want it..
so today my mother and father are doing everything they can to get a new one.

Its been a bad week but I'm a Christian and i know i have my trials. I'm very thankful for god protecting me because after all i heard what could have happen...i know if it wasn't for him i wouldn't be here now. Then I'm thankful for the people he put in my life because they kept me sane and fixed the problems.

So no worries I will be blogging tmr. Just really been a busy couple days:/. But just to note i wont be blogging on the weekends. I need days off to renew myself:). and soon for homework time:).

That's all i just wanted to let you guys in the loop:)

        One of the things i been meaning to do as a Mani is was a Newspaper Mani. I didn't want to do anything too normal so i took some toons from the newspaper to try. WARNING!!! this was my first time doing this kind of Mani so now i know what to do for next time. But i got the idea to do this Mani with comic strips came from a co-worker of mine so i decided to try:). I will say that i took these pictures the day after because i needed light so there may be chipping:( sorry. And if you notice...my nails are shorter:(. I broke three this past weekend:(. Well enough of my sad faces....here is my Mani!!!

(*I used Sinful Colors "Snow me White" for this Mani.)

My Left hand

My Right Hand

These are the strips i used :)

Well thats it friends!!! Hope you guys liked this. I learned to have patience and make sure that i cover the whole nail:) but can't really do this slowly because it will get stuck on the polish:). Well til next time:)...Bye friends!!!

And since we are this tiny town with really only three exits out to the newest town....if they are flooded, its very hard to get out :(. BTW they are flooded. You need like huge trucks and SUV's to get out.
But ya anyways, that means fireworks for this day are probably get cancelled. My town had their yesterday because the newest town has there today. but i still would love to see fireworks:). 

To the post today ya its late because its a fresh post from today and i was being lazy with the weather:). But here we go:)

Outside my window into my neighborhood. its not flooded too bad compared to this morning but its nice outside :)

And this is what me and Roxi are doing on such a great day:) Watching Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. Sorry for some mess I'm in process of packing and sorting for the move to Tempe, AZ.

Polishes used:
-Wet n' Wild "Red Red"
-Sinful Colors "Snow me White"
-Pixel "Oh Pardon Me"

So that's it for today!! Hope you all have a great 4th of July to my American followers!! And a great day to the rest:)

A Flip Flop Frenzy!

So each year, Old Navy has the greatest one day wonder deal on Flip Flops... have you heard of it? $1/ Flip Flop. Yes and the store is filled with flip flop freaks crazy for the restricted 5 per person pairs. This was my fourth time working a flip flop frenzy day, Yes i work at Old navy, so i decided to do my nails!! We always have a theme for associates for one it helps customers recognize the employees so if they have questions. second it brings fun to the day for us employees so we don't go to crazy ;). It is really amazing because when we have fun events like this, this year really it started, i have had the pleasure of sharing nail art designs for events with another polishaholic who is a co- worker of mine:). She had the stamp design from the new Bundle monster collection that just came out while i had a brush:). Our theme this year was our Flag tees so i did the whole 4th of July theme flip flop:).  Here it is....

*I shouldn't have put the stars on :( i feel like it made it bad.*

Wanted to give a view of the thumb since it is different.

The one's who made this possible
(Left to right top): Base A Seche Restore, OPI "Speak for Your Elf", China Glaze "Blue Years Eve", OPI "I Juggle...Men", Sinful Colors "Snow Me White", Sinful Colors "Hot Spot", Sally Hansen "Red", Seche Vite Top Coat.
Bottom: Sally Hansen "Silver" Nail art Pen, 20/0 Royal SG250 Brush (From Micheal's)

This is my right hand. i did some star because lets face it...i could never do wht i did on my left hand on my right. i suck drawin, writing, and just anything with my left hand so i just did this. Even my stars looked bad ha.

Well thats all yall! haha i hope you guys like it and i hope some of my readers got some $1 flip flops:). Later Friends!!

A New Start

Hello my wonderful followers!
I am really sorry for being away for long periods of time. There has been a lot going on and i will admit...i lost my desire to be creative for a while there.

This past May i graduated from my Community college i been attending for four years. It has been a big thing in my family since i am the first in my family to graduate college. I earned my Associates of Arts for those who are curious. Since graudating its been not stop workin and finalizing my paperwork for Arizona state University as well as looking for a new home:). Next i will be working on my Bachelors in Secondary Education in political science. So pretty much i been finally relaxing from all the stress the last four years:). Good news, WE FOUND A APARTMENT and just now waiting til its time to leave our small towns. I say us because I'll be living with my boyfriend and sister because we are all going to school there.

Then i guess with all the stress, i just got in a funk and was not feeling creative. It's funny because i couldnt bare to have naked nails so i would force myself to polish them and put a glitter top on so it had some thought. I have no idea where the funk came from. But recently i been getting back to my way and i hope it stays.

My goals in the last month i have at home is to of course spend good time with my family and hang out with friends but also keep blogging. My giveaway is still going i actually have 83 followers so very close but i actually tend to end the giveaway by the end of the month if not earlier. Like i mentioned before i wanted to add to it so i still need to. with money crunching for tuition, its been tough but i want to make it special because a lot of you have been waiting forever and let me just say i love you guys!!!.

Well thats it so far i do have some post coming because i had some cute manis i still wanted to share so be looking out for them, but until then...Later friends!!

Guess who is BACK!?!?!?

First things first! I'm So SORRY!! I didn't plan to stay away that long. Truth is school and work a long with a horrible computer to my life over. Mostly just a bad computer. My old computer was a Compaq and i had it since 08' and it would not let me on blogger what so ever. I always got the "site error" page. But it was fine because i needed the time last semester. 
 But i got a new laptop!!! so no more worries! This wont be a nail post and to be honest it may take me a couple days to get back into the flow of posting specially since i want to fix my page a bit before posting more.
 I did want to thank you followers because i didn't loose anyone! but gain some! which i appreciate! MY GIVEAWAY!!! well its still going no worries i still have the pens i check on them to make sure they are good and i think i want to add onto it so be on the look out! 
LOTS of nail shopping since last postings so get ready friends!!!
Great to be back!!
