Under The Sea

Hello everyone, it's been awhile. I've missed you all dearly and thank you for keeping up with me during the past week. Life has finally settled down a bit and I've been enjoying my new moments of spare time (:

In other words the weather here has been absolutely bipolar. Combined with that and the fact that I can't wait for the freedom of summer, I created a simple 'under the sea'-themed manicure. This is one of those times where the idea was a lot better in my head haha...


I started off with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Blue-Away. I painted the subtle pinstripes with a sheer pearly striping polish. Then I painted the starfish and the shell with Essie Van D'Go, mixed that with white to highlight and Essie Tart Deco to shade. Then I used OPI Alpine Snow and a dotting tool for the pearl strands.

So that's it. Please excuse my dry cuticles, the horrible thing about closeup photos is that the camera picks up every last, gross detail :P Also, I'm now using the new blogger interface. I'm not liking it too much so far, I'm totally lost. Is anyone else as confused as me? :P

Until next time!

  9. Thank you!
    Haha I've been avoiding the new interface for as long as possible and now it's caught up to me ): It looks nice but I find it to be not as user-friendly as the old one. For one thing I hate how when managing comments or posts I have to scroll back up the page to click 'next' to load more! This could just be me being lazy though :P
