Hey there! I got my camera all fixed up. Now I have to learn how to get it to take pictures like I want, because when I attempted to capture the purple color of my previous mani, it was a hot mess. I was horrified by the huge mistake I called a mani in my last post, but this should make up for it. I am so proud. It's like.. my first born child. I mean mani. Haha. Check it out!
Essie- Pretty Edgy

OH HOLY NIGHT it's gorgeous. I can't get enough of it. Not only is kelly green my favorite color, but Essie has managed to create a perfect creme version of it that I only recently discovered. Last on the shelf at Ulta. Gift card in hand. It was fate, seriously. Can't even handle this. I also can't handle my shockingly dry skin but ohh efff my nails are so pretttyyy.... I'll get over it. I put lotion on and two seconds later it's all soaked in. Siigh, the troubles of winter. Meh.

So obviously this is Essie- Pretty Edgy. I think it's Pretty Freaking Awesome. Application was a dream, perfectly controllable and opaque in two glorious coats. I topped it with a healthy layer of SV and then... stamped. And it's gorgeous.

I stamped with BM plate 05, in Kleancolor Metallic Sapphire. I love Kleancolor for stamping. There's a place in Texas that has them, near my grandmother's house, and last time I was there I bought out their metallics. Worth the $1.95, and much more. I used a dotting tool and put a tiny bit of Sinful Colors Queen of Beauty, a really pretty silver glitter. Then... I kept playing. 

I filled in my the design on my ring finger with Color Club Kiss Me Mistletoe, a lovely green foil I'll be swatching soon. Can you tell I love me some green? :) 

Sigh. Perfection. This mani has made my whole day. Er, night. I'm having dinner with the boyfriend's parents tomorrow and didn't want something too ostentatious. This mani is "me" enough without being in anyone's face. Not that I'd care much. Breaking them in slowly! :)

Anyway. I'm just so excited that I got my camera working and that I could finally bring a decent post. If I had a glass of sparkling grape juice I'd prolly be celebrating in style. Hope everyone is having a great day :)

By the way... I know this is very early on, and I only have a couple followers, but if we can spread the word my first giveaway will come that much faster. I already picked up a couple things. :) Can't... stop... shopping!!!

Did I mention I found a bottle of Seche Vite today for $2.15? On clearance? How does that even happen?

See you soon!!!
