A Picture is Worth 1000 Words

In the end, the clothes swap didn't end up happening. It was just too much of a hassle for all three of us (I still can't believe that out of close to 30 people, only two were going to come)! The fires here in So Cal were in full swing and the smoke at my house was unbelievable, both inside and out! With the smoke, the anorexic guest list, and everyone's busy day, the party just wasn't in the cards. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the boxes of clothes I had set aside for the party. I'm thinking a garage sale might be in order.

A few weeks ago there was a 30% Konad sale that I, of course, had to take advantage of! :) I bought image plates m19 (plain french tip), m56 (tip decorations), m73 (sheet music, a cool square geometric pattern, others. . .) and the brand's top coat (everything else smears their "special" polish).

The tips take PRACTICE, let me tell you. Those are so hard to get on straight! I still can't figure out how to use the decorative tips over the original since they are two different shapes! I'll work on it some more. Some of the decorative ones probably look better alone.

After many reapplications, this is my first official Konad french manicure. I had to cover it with glitter to mask the imprecise tip placement and replacement. The bow placement was suggested by a friend, and I quite like it. :)

I've decided that every post from now on will have at least one picture, whether one I've taken or one I've "borrowed" ;) from the internet. Life is so much more interesting when visually expressed.

OK, well I'm going to enjoy a margarita my mom whipped up (panic not, my friends, it's legal) and then eat with the fam! I hope you have a great weekend. (Highlight of mine will be a Gossip Girl catch-up get-together at my friend's house. Ooh baby! Only three more days until the new season! I haven't seen it for over a year. I hope it's as interesting as I remember.)

Up next. . . pictures of my recent thrift store finds!
