Floral + Dots

I know it has been awhile. My computer got a crazy virus and I was busy enjoying my summer so I didn't get it fixed until a couple of weeks ago. I did however try to update on my tumblr . I just got a new phone and its so much easier for me to upload pictures on tumblr than on blogger.

Anyways, here are my nails earlier this week:

I used:

OPI - Crown Me Already!
OPI - Skulls & Crossbones
OPI - Don't Mess WIth OPI
American Apparel - Coney Island
Essie - Pansy

This was my first attempt at floral nails, and it was surprisingly easy!

I got a Helmer on craigslist on Saturday! Didn't have to put it together, so it was a great deal! I immediately put all of my nail polish + nail supplies in it when I got home. I love it! So much easier to access everything. Here are some photos!

My nail polish's previous home.

Some nail polish in their old boxes and one emptied out.

Here's my whole stash waiting to be organized into the Helmer.

The Helmer!! Got all my polishes in there fully using about 2 drawers. I hope I don't fill more drawers anytime soon...

I would highly recommend getting a Helmer or something like it because it makes getting to your nail polish and supplies so much easier.

Blue Leopard Print

I figured out how to do leopard print the other day (well I knew how, just never actually did it) & I am loving how easy it is! I did a blue one this time!

I used:
Color Club - Take me to your Chateau
OPI - No Room For The Blues

On another note, I bought a Helmer off of craigslist. I didn't want to assemble it so it was a great find! I will post pictures soon!

RIP Dasher :(

My boyfriend's family's dog, Dasher, has been sick for a couple of weeks and today she was put down :(. She was 77 years old (in dog years). In her honor I did gold nails (she was a Golden Retriever) with a pink bow because when she went to the groomer she would get a pink bow and she would immediately attempt to take it off.

I used:
China Glaze - Mega Bite
Pink rhinestones
Heart fimo clay slice

Chg - Mega Bite is a gold scattered holo. Seeing as since I didn't take the pictures under natural sunlight you miss the holo of it in the pictures, but it really isn't very holo in real life unless you look at it really close.

Here's a closer up picture of it:

I'll miss Dasher a lot, I met her when she was old and knew she would die soon but I was hoping it wouldn't have happened until later. My boyfriend and his dad took her to the vet today where they found out she had a tumor in her spleen and she didn't have many more days. She was a goofy dog who loved her duck jerky... RIP Dash <3.

OPI Serena Williams Set

So it's dead week (week before finals) and my first two finals are on Saturday... :( So I figured I should post something before I take myself away from the world for a couple of days.

Also have a nail polish buying story: The other day I saw that a Bartell's had OPI's Texas collection and I bought Don't Mess With OPI last week thinking it'd be at retail price or maybe even more expensive, but none of the OPI's would ring up so the manager priced it at $2.99! Then I thought about buying Austin-tatious Turquoise also but I felt like I would be too greedy. Then 2 days ago I go back and Austin-tatious was still there! So I bought it and for some reason they still hadn't priced the OPIs so I got it for $1.99! Awesomeee.

OPI - Simply Smash-Ing
OPI - Black Shatter

I love shatter, at first I was kind of hesitant since I lean toward cutesy things more than grudge-y looking things. But, I really loved the effect of it. After using Black Shatter I went and bought China Glaze - Fault Line (since it was the only one left at my Sally's). I think it will be awesome to use it over gold though when I do Husky nails again :)

Also, as you can see I changed my watermark. I feel like 'Nail Bean' will be way more easy to identify where the image is from than with 'Beanz'. Also wanted to change the font.
