Go Techno Van Gogh!

My nails today are a emerald green creme with a fun sparkle top coat.  Yesterday I was at Sally's, and all of their clearance was 50% off.  I bought like 6 bottles, and two of them were these beauties.  I spent like 10 dollars on a bunch of polishes, and a giant bottle of nail polish remover.

Nail Ideas... Dreams

If you've noticed, I tend to try and do more nail art than anything else.  I realize that I don't have anywhere enough money to swatch things addictively, and I like the effects of nail art.  When I got my nail discs last month I began swatching most of my nail polish... but I also kept a disc especially to put my ideas down, to test so to speak.  This is the first of hopefully many.

An Ornate OPI Pattern

I bought German-cure by OPI from Ulta yesterday.  I could really only afford one bottle, and this was the one that I kind of drooled over.  I am making plans to attain some more of it soon(much to my wallets disdain).  Also I really need some striping tape; does anyone know where to buy some without having to order off the internet?  I can't really order a lot off of the web(hence why I own no indies...however much I want them).  

Press On Manicure?

imPRESS, made by Kiss, are supposed to be a press-on manicure.  So I'd wanted to try these since they came out... not really sure why.  I decided I would finally buy some when I was at Walmart one day.  I bought the most ridiculous ones they had, mostly because that's just how I am.  These are called Text Appeal.  After applying them, the only thing I liked was the bottle.

I suck I know. I have two posts lined up but just couldn't find the time. I won't be able to post until Sunday night. Just keep tight. Maybe I will do some super intricate nail art to make up for it.

Keep on nail polish addicts. :)

Sally Hansen Stud-io Time

Holy Cow Batman!  999 views this morning... yes I am considering that 1000.  Thanks for you guys making my first month kinda successful.  I am extremely happy :D.

On to the nails!  I kinda cheated, sorry y'all.  I was at Target and these nail wraps were in the sale bin for $2.56, and I figured, "Why not?" I hadn't used any nail wraps since the Sally Hansen wraps came out (I tried the butterfly ones then) and that was before I was really in nails.  I love these... I had a much better experience than the first time.  They are cute, and work correctly.  While I won't shell out the $10 normally, I will spend $2.56.

    Okay.... I LOVE THIS POLISH.  It's official.  When I saw the first swatches of the nails inc. Sprinkles collection, I didn't know what to think.  Now that I have it on, I want the rest.  Correction on the post from Wednesday.  It's a blue jelly with navy blue and silver glitter.  In my defense, the silver looks a little green behind the blue.

    Nail Haul

    I know this isn't near as ridiculous as some people's nail polish hauls, but this one made me really happy.  I went shopping at one of the malls today, and these came home with me.

    Tape Color Blocked

    Wow... I just enrolled for school last Wednesday so now I have to do Summer Assignment catch-up.  It's so hard to remember pre-calc... AGH!!!!  My calculus assignments are even time constrained, but I suppose that's life.  Anyway I painted Elephant Walk on Monday.  Yesterday I decided that was too boring so I added a stripe with tape and Celeb City.
