From Gelicious to Gold

So I wore the Aztec Blue from Gelicious for a week - no problems - but realized that I had a ball to go to and then a week of school camp so I really needed to sort my nails out.

I had bought a new bottle of acetone from the chemist - it cost me $15 which seems a lot even if you consider I live in the middle of no where.

Then I soaked my nails for 10 mins and it didn't work, then I tried the alfoil trick for another 10 or so. Unfortunately, I had to really scrap if off and damaged my nails.

I'm not blaming Gelicious but the acetone.

To go to the ball I put on Pretty Serious's Mummy Mush.

Very pretty, two coats. I only wanted to wear it for the night so didn't bother with a top coat.

Happy birthday!

Look at the glitter!

Don't you love it?

Nail colour - Gelicious - Aztec Blue
Glitter - Pretty Serious - Daphne's Birthday Party

The sparkle makes my heart sing - maybe even sing 'Happy Birthday'.

I had read that if you use a normal polish on top of the gel you can use acetone free remover to remove the polish but keep the gel - I'm going to see how it goes.

Gelicious - a first

I bought a Gelicious starter kit thing and a few colours. I thought it would be a bit of fun to try them out.

My first colour was Beachy Peachy Coral - and I quite liked it. I put on 3 layers of colour, along with the base and top coat.

It began peeling 6 days later on one of my nails, so I put a little more clear over it and set it and Bob's your uncle. (check out my PJ pants - that I'm wearing inside out - I'm such a fashionista)

I got a little bored of the colour 8 days in so I made a gelly sandwich.

12 days later 3 fingers was lifting up (well the polish was) so I removed it all, but I think I would have done it anyway because the nail growth was really starting to annoy me.

Anyhow, I got 12 days - not quite the 2 weeks but pretty close.

I've just put on Aztec Blue and will see how it goes.

New post

Look who arrived this week!

My husband picked it up from the post office for me, but while he was there an older friend sidled up to him to find out what the new package was.

When she saw Daphne, he thinks she got the wrong idea because she suddenly got embarrassed.


My 'fetish' for nail polish gets me in trouble again.

Anyhow - I haven't been wearing coloured polish for ages, I've been in a bit of a slump really and can't be bothered. I have a few projects in mind that will hopefully gets going again :)
