Update & Two Manicures

I am sure you’ve noticed it’s been a little while since my last entry, we’re looking at buying a home, a long term goal finally realized. And I’ve been very busy with that. I actually have two manicures for you today but no nail stamping. I haven’t had time. I am sure I’ll be cutting down my nails to a degree when we get to the stage where we’re packing and moving, but for right now they are still long. First up is one of the first China Glazes I ever purchased, Pink Voltage.




I love this color, but next time I’ll be wearing white underneath it. I am glad you can’t really see the visible nail line in the photograph but you could in real life. This is what I had on my nails when we went to make our offer on the house we want. It is such a great and bright color. One of my favorites to be sure, it was great to work with too, and this is three coats, it needed the third coat and like I mentioned it would have been better with white underneath it. Next up is Revlon Ocean Breeze. I am sorry to say I am not as pleased with it as I had hoped. I had chipping on the right hand the same day I applied it. And you can sort of see where it got a little smudged on my left pinky in the photograph below.




I will keep you all up to date on what’s up with our home buying adventure, but once we go into ‘Moving Mode’ I will be less active on the blog. It’s a great house, I wish I could share pictures, but I can’t. Maybe after we’re moved in I can show some photographs, we’ll see. If my DH says no pics I won’t be able to, so I’m not making any promises. Also I am on a total no buy for the moment, which stinks because the Bundle Monster set is due out and I won’t be able to grab it. But the good news is that we’ll be getting a house so I think I can live with that. *grin*

I want to thank you for the support of my blog, it’s been a lot of fun and I look forward to many years ahead, many awesome and fun stamped, marbled and other type manicures. So wish us luck that our offer is accepted. We’re in limbo on it, but I really want this place. I can tell you that it’s five years old and the bathroom and bedroom are set up like I have here. And that it’s basically perfect for us. It’s so cool, the bedroom I’d be in is already the baby blue I’d want it painted! So I leave you with that and thanks for your understanding while we are in this transition period. Happy polishing!
