It’s Lacquer Ring time again!
First, I will tell you about my carpet debacle this weekend… So my brother in law and his fiance’ are coming home for Christmas. She has never seen my collection and most people who haven’t seen it are intrigued, and of course I’m proud of it. lol So I have some minor spills on the carpet around my polish shelf (in the closet of the guest bedroom) So I took it upon myself to try to clean it off so the house would look nice for them. Well after about a bottle of nail polish remover later, the stains are still there… and the whole upstairs smelled so bad that if you lit a match you might blow up. It was god awful!!! I shampooed the rug 3x nothing was making this smell better, I dumped baking soda directly on the carpet hoping to absorb some of the smell, nada. Eventually almost 4 days later the smell is gone, but if you sit on the floor you can still smell it when you are closer to the carpet… smh
I have been totally neglecting my nails as I have been spackling, painting, cleaning, the whole nine yards in order to prepare for our family coming for Christmas. Winter of course is about THE worst time to do that so naturally my hands are so dry. 😦 I also have not been keeping up with my Nail Envy as I have only been painting my nails for TLR’s so I had my pinky and pointer finger on my ‘model hand’ break and my thumb on the other hand! Tragedy!!
Alright, well enough about my craziness, because I am sure we are all going through this, it is after all the Holidays!
Lesley as you know chose this month’s prompt, She chose ‘Magenta-ish’ nails for our color theme and now the theme is Stars. I have this awesome Star stamp on one of my 80’s MoYou Stamps that I just knew I had to use!
I started out with Philly Loves Lacquer’s Hope is an Option. I then used ILNP’s Metropolis flakie with two coats. I stamped using Essie’s Nothing Else Metals.
I did a plan on ‘star’ for my pinky. Per my last TLR I said I had to to Hello Kitty themed nails in some way as Lesley and I both share our obsession for Hello Kitty. I have a giant plate of all kinds of HK Stamps and on there is a Lady Gaga Hello Kitty. Of course Lesley loves her to, so Win! I stamped this using Zoya’s Savita
I have to say how much I love these Flakies! think I got 7 or 8. So far I used the Blue and this one and I love them both! I just love how the flakies just peek through but you can still see how awesome they are!
What do you think? How crazy are you right now preparing for the Holidays?
