The Swatch Project

My new wheels have arrived and project swatch can now begin :). I picked up two packs of long handle wheels this time so I can have them by brand and by color (a polish addicted neat freak's dream!) with room to write on them. I also picked up four packs (10 pieces each) of the traditional round ones to play with.
My nails are pretty healthy but not resilient enough to do on the nail swatching like most blogger's. Plus it saves time and lets me see how polishes react in different lighting without the commitment to four days of wear.
I'll come back to add pic's when I have them :)

In Shock!

Wowza! I had to post this the second my hands stopped shaking! I just found out that I won 6 new polishes!!!  Brand and colors to be revealed once they arrive ;D.

Oh Chickadee's.....

My oh my am I behind! First my computer was too full to add any photos, then everyone in my life had either a bad cold, the flu, or pneumonia. So in an effort to catch up this one will be a pic heavy post. I'm still to tight on space but at least its semi-functional now.

Today I have for you Zoya Blaze and Barielle Lemon Drop (which I am currently wearing). Here is a preview of Lemon Drops.

Zoya Cynthia

Good evening chickadee's :)! Have a quick post and pic of my weekend mani Zoya Cynthia. Really have ended up loving this color more than I thought. I was afraid it might appear too blacked indoors but I haven't found that to be true....though it has been confused for black twice hmmmm. Oh well I find it lovely!

Hand Me Down Awesomeness!

Looks like I might have myself a hand me down camera, a Kodak EasyShare C190 with a broken battery door. My family got sick of having to tape it up and packed it away. Found it while neatening up and they said I can have it!
Adjusted the settings and took a few test pic's they look good on the screen hope they turn out ok once blown up and cropped. Want to take more outdoors tomorrow if we get some sun see how it compares to the Sony Cybershot DSC-W80 I usually borrow. As long as its somewhat comparable to the Sony i'll be happy since I wont have to borrow a computer to upload the pics to this ancient beast of a laptop.
This is motivating me to get going on a makeshift light box. Especially since the pro-strong box that arrived today is just the right size for a test run. Well I think that's about it for this random blog burst.
Have a great night all! XOXO

Foggy Days

Not much going on worth posting in nail land recently. Really enjoyed my Zoya Aroura manicure but the sun didn't want to play nice and let me photograph the brilliant holo it emanates. Recieved a lot of compliments and one jewelry request from it! Jewelry is nearly done just need to glue it into its bezel tonight, hopefully the sun will come out for this picture.
Currently wearing A England Princess Tears with an accent nail of She Walks In Beauty.
I should know better by now than to keep buying lavender but I really enjoy the prominent green holo flash.

Cupcake Nails!

I admit I am a fuddy duddy valentine, Ive just never been that into it. Yet after seeing so many adorable theme mani's for February I had to do something at least in pink! So here you are :) a cupcake mani featuring Zoya Felicity, Sinful Snow Me White, and OPI Skyfall.

A England Bottle Shots

Good evening everyone! Boy oh boy was I pleasantly surprised to find these beauties at my door Monday afternoon :D! I may or may not have squealed loud enough to make the neighbors glance over.....I apparently was one of the lucky orders from the sale to get out before the new Royal Post rules were enforced restricting the number of bottles per mailer.
Without further ado.....

January Photo Update

Finally getting around to uploading and editing some of my January manicure shots. Great to be able to borrow a fantastic camera not so great when my dinosaur of a laptop isnt compatible with that kind of card :( so I had to wait till I could borrow a computer as well.
Here is a photo of the dappled dot-icure my last mani of January with a kumquat for some flair ;).
This one was a bugger to clean up (yes I am a NCIS LA Hetty fan) since I didnt get to it right away and it had a dark base. My cuticles werent so happy with me either but I really enjoyed this one and left it on past my usual four days.
