So, the BornPretty.com order is here and I get to show it to you, but first, so there is actually some nail art in this post, here is a design I did for a friend of mine. Pics are before cleanup so I'm sorry about that. He said he wanted something minecraft, maybe creepers so I went with that and used my horrid horrid black, which I fix later in this blog but unfortunately after I used it in this design, as much as I could because he used to love black polish.
And now.. haul part two!
It came all the way from Singapore so I wasn't surprised to find the powders had come loose from their package and some powder residue was scattered about but everything was still sealed tight and nothing was damaged. The Thinner was taped tight shut which was nice to see.
I used the thinner right away on some black polish I've had for years and years that was so incredibly goopy it was practically unusable. Here it is, gooping it up.
The stamping plate is adorable. I had to buy it even though I am pants at using it. I'll keep practicing, this new plate will give me a reason to get better at it and maybe eventually I'll succeed well enough to show you all.
|My failure at this isn't because I couldn't remove the sticker!|
After getting all my new stuff together I looked into my current nail polish storage method and decided that enough was enough.
Look at that, all messy and piled together and getting banged around all the time. I could never find anything and I'd get bubbles in my polish. Plus, I couldn't admire my stash!
Tada! Much better, I don't have a huge collection, in fact I think it's pretty small compared to a lot of bloggers, but since I'm a poor student, fairly new at this and content to substitute acrylic for anything I don't have with my too much paint in the studio portion of my apartment I'm fine with that. You'll notice I've got the acrylic I bought specifically for my nails in there along with the brushes from before, until class starts in the fall it doesn't have anywhere pressing to be so there it is. Also, you can ignore my magic card decks below that, you can't see my whole collection so you can't tell I have a problem!
Whew, and that's that. It had been a bit since I posted last but whoa, with this I feel like I made up for it. Hope you liked!
