Hello everybody! I'm checking in from my mother's computer as yet again, I have no internet at home. It really is getting beyond a joke that just because I am 20 minutes outside of town, my internet connection is as flaky as a woman eating a chocolate bar while hiding under a bush.
But I digress. Saturday's BOM Nail Art January prompt was Dots!
I used French White Gelicious gel polish for my base (and got a mild sunburn from the light too, more info below). Over that I put randomly placed dots of two sizes of the gorgeous orange glitter flake Shining Bright from Lilypad Lacquer.
Shining Bright is one of the five limited edition polishes from the An Indie Extravaganza 3 box, which is still available from Powder Perfect. It's such a lovely cool orange colour, and loads of shimmery glittery goodness.
I had big plans on knocking over a bunch of manis this weekend. What I ended up with was a huge nana nap (I suppose I had to catch up from all the lost sleep my insomnia caused), no internet, slightly sunburnt fingertips from using a mini "one finger at a time" LED lamp, and one finger naked because on Sunday morning the gel polish ejected! (Note: The nail nearly always ejects for some reason, and I have skin on my fingers very sensitive to heat and sun). Talk about a weekend of nail fails!
I did originally type up this post at Mum's house, however the photos simply refused to upload. Then I fought with Blogger on a web browser on my phone and got them to load up, but then I couldn't shift them around easily. This post has certainly been an exercise in frustration!
Chocolate Trivia!! If you had no idea why I was referring to a woman eating a chocolate bar under a bush being flaky... obviously you have either blocked out this ad, or are far too young to have grown up watching this ad and then trying in vain to have the Flake bar separate into lovely bite-sized pieces like this, instead of three huge chunks and a whole lot of dust that you end up with.
Fingers crossed my ISP fixes their latest issue fast!!
