ombre manicure

nihrida did a blue ombre manicure back in october that really stuck in my head, especially after she ultra-jazzed it up with some konad action.  i was really impressed and thought it was so pretty!  i finally tried it out yesterday.  results!

if i could re-do i would replace the white with the next shade of pink.  also, my pinks aren't mixed very well.  here is why:

mummy's nails

i got home for the holiday break late sunday night and as much as i miss darling, it has been oodles of fun hanging out with my family.  i finally feel i've outgrown my "i hate my family" teenage years and can now appreciate them as fun and interesting people! n_n

i painted my mum's nails today, here are the mcguyvered (read: i used a toothpick) results!

the peppermint stripes are straight from Nails by Asami and the rest are quite generic designs.

› sally hansen hard as nails xtreme wear in white on
› dreamcoat acrylic paints in unnamed green, yellow, red, and pearly white

i'm quite embarrassed to have run out of room for the holly berries, but i'm quite proud of the star on the tree.  it looked fat and squishy and terrible but halfway through trying to blot it off, i had this result which both of us quite liked.  n_n

xmas mani

i finished the last optic communications homework of my life this morning around 3, and celebrated by doing my nails.  n_n





they haven't been this long for at least half a year, and i think i'll cut them before going home for the holidays.  my mother wouldn't approve.

› seche vite dry fast top coat
› essie matte about you


yes, i'm a drugstore girl.  my non-funded student budget won't have it any other way.  the fact that i'm wearing $20 worth of topcoat blows my mind, a little.

and for poop and giggles, here's last year holiday mani, from before i knew not to paint my cuticles:
