I did my nails while taking a break from editing the 4 weddings I have photographed in the past couple of weeks. If I dont keep something on my nails at all times they will rip. They are not strong at all and I have never successfully grown them out. I have spent so much money on products to make my nails grow and I gave up. Somethings are not meant to be and I am not meant to have long nails.
I was going to use dark purple and black but summer is almost over and the darker colors will be coming out so I went with a more lighter version of what I had pictured. My Husband and my friend loved them. My husband was coming up with all different
color combinations and my friend was telling me that I have to leave them like this for a long time (that will not happen) soon as they chip off they go :)
I hope you like them, I have listed what I used in the picture of the nails. I think it is easier this way for reference.

I havent been around in awhile, trying to get things in my life organized. I haven't been feeling very creative either. I had the urge to do my nails today and when I was doing them, my husband told me that these were one of his favorites. My hands are in rough shape right now so I'm a little embarrassed. I hope you can see past that :)

I am on so much expensive medication that I was put on while in the hospital. I hate medication and have intentions of getting off of them. Because of that medication I have developed more and more physical and mental health issues.
I moved to Alberta in February 2012 and where we were living I did not have much access to get the help I needed however in March 2013 we moved to Edmonton where there are many more resources to help me get my life back.
I still have a long road ahead of me but I have had some progress and regained my hope when at times I just wanted to give up. That in itself is a breakthrough.
I am having to put some projects on hold so I can give my focus to therapy and getting better. I still will blog as much as I can but the specific projects will have to be postponed. That is why I haven't been around much, I hope you do understand.

This polish is the mail polish in my debut collection. I named it to represent the birth of my indie polishes. I wanted something bright bold with an impact, to simulate in my mind what the birth of a star actually looks like.

Life has a funny way of twisting and turning throwing challenges at you and that is why I have had to delay my big blog transformation and indie polish launch. For the past week I have been getting so much accomplished! I have sent my launch polishes out for review and when the reviewers recieve them I will be sharing with you their reviews and launching at the same time! Stick with me I know my blog has been quiet lately but I have been working hard to make it awesome!
I will leave you with a quick swatch I did today of a polish I bought 2 months ago and haven't had the time to use Hope you like it!

We found out on Friday that we are moving to Edmonton, 5 hours south of where we are now and much more populated. It is the closest "city" to us and it is pretty exciting as there is so much more to do there and more places to buy polish!
Oh and I cannot forget a little mall called the West Edmonton Mall...have you heard of it? Only a few blocks from where we will be living!
We move in 2 weeks so we don't have very much time to pack and tie up loose ends up here in Grande Prairie (aka the northern most populated place in Canada, meaning there is no city larger then this to the north of us in Canada)
I have to bubble wrap all my nail polish and that in itself will be a huge task but I don't want very many casualties, hopefully not any (crosses fingers)
Remember I will be having two giveaways at launch time one for followers before the giveaway and ones that are probably just coming here for the giveaway so share with your friends as there might be an added bonus for people that share my blog with their friends ;)

Wit the very soon launch of my first Indie polishes, I have been crazy busy so my Test it Tuesday post is still being posted on Tuesday, but a little late. I am hoping to have time to schedule posts if I am busy that way you have something to read while having your much needed morning coffee. Also I can give you a hint of what you would be seeing the next day!

"So I have set myself a challenge. I seem to be lacking in creativity so I have made a commitment I have to stick to, and I will have to think outside of the box. I intend to go in order of all my stamping plates that I have organized in my binder and use every single image on every single plate from the front of the book to the back. If I land on a Christmas image in March well then I just have to find a way to make it work!. I can incorporate other plates designs elements etc, and still participate in challenges but I will do this and I will be blogging about it. The good the bad and the ugly. I am excited to start!"
- Base Coat OPI Nail Envy
- 2 coats of City Color Masquerade (Thanks Amanda for this beautiful purple Polish!)
- 2 coats of Klean Color Chunky Holo Purple
- Stamped Both images from BM01 (2 images in one! images used are circled below)
- Stamped with Essie No Place like Chrome
- Added silver stars on the thumbs
- Applied Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat (better then SV IMHO)

I am a day behind, but better late then never. Crumpets Nail Tarts, a super awesome group on Facebook is having a 31 day Challenge. I am excited for this Challenge and even though I will be farther behind when I go home to visit for 10 days (I'm not bringing polish, just nail strips) I plan to complete this challenge anyways no matter how far behind I get!
*Please don't take this next part offensively or personally, it is just my opinion, which everyone is entitled to right?
