Goodness, where on earth did the week go?! I got so far behind on chores over the long weekend last week, I spent a good part of this last week catching up on them, because it is spring/summer and our weekends are quickly filling up. I definitely didn't get much reading done.

I haven't been posting pictures of my nails lately because I have been too busy to really get creative and was just using old colors for a quick polish. Last week though I tried out a couple of new techniques and I got a bunch of new polishes.

Lacey lilac with pink shimmery striping tape I guess you would call it.  I saw this done on a couple blogs and it definitely isn't as easy as the make it look! The tape didn't stay put either, within a couple of hours it was already lifting on the edges even with 2 coats of top coat.
I also saw a technique on pinterest about making your own decals using a plastic bag and a crafting punch.  I liked the idea of a spring color like Breezy Blue with little dragon flies and butterflies. I learned a few lessons but it seems like a fun way to get simple art add-ons for your nails.




  1. I have tried that tape on my nails too and it does come off super super quick. The only thing it might do is help keep a line in between colors when you paint them.

    1. I saw some beautiful art using them, but maybe there are different qualities, either way I guess I will just be using them for guides from now on.
