I thought I liked them on FB but I'll double check because lord knows I probably forgot. And since I finally created a Twitter account I'll do it there too. Thanks Nyn!

My current manicure is Julep Daphne with an accent nail of Julep Emilie (can you see the stripes?). Emilie really came out very green, I was going to do them all with the accent stripes, but I like Daphne better. I think I'll save Emilie for Christmas time or St Pat's, it's that green.

The amount of time from slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is exactly one bananosecond.
I do have a secret yen for pink in unexpected places. ~ninja dog
I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
I don't understand why I can't think to go before I start on my nails.

I did Fingerpaints Bronze Sculpture with the matte topcoat, trying to replicate Santorum, but it's too light. Plus, I think I'd have better luck with a microglitter. I'll have to investigate and see if I can find a dark brown microglitter. Zoya has one that's close, but not quite right.

I am wearing Shoot for the Maroon from OPI. I loooooove the deep purple/garnet tones of it and it is sparkly, too! Yay!

I have a question - does anyone use Seche Vite top coat? I am finding it makes the polish chip faster ;p
Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
My hair officially hates protein Once a month is enough!
Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
10/13: I couldn't take it anymore and took off Lava. I now have CG Liquid Leather and Lubu Heels. Pics after work.

I will report back when it starts chipping. See my optimism?

And Nailtiques 2 (not plus) is about to be tossed unless someone wants it for free. I'll send it so someone else can try it.

Arrgh! I forgot to fill the contacts case with fresh acetone so no cleanup, with black. Arrgh!

That way, I can get some polishes that go with the Seche Vite - cause I love the glassy finish it gives my nails tx! (and who knew nail products would be as confusing as hair products! lol!)

3 free refers to nail polish that is free form certain substances that are potentially hazardous or harmful over time.

http://www.alllacqueredup.com/2007/0...l#.UJ_2GL-9Kc0

Most modern nail polish is 3 free, with some going 4 or 5 free.

Things that aren't 3 free are more common in nail treatments and things like fast dry topcoats. 3 free and non 3 free sometimes don't play well together, causing more chipping or increased chance of nail staining.

I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

Thanks Jeep! I'm planning to break it out around Christmas. I'm hoping to find a red crackle top coat that will go with it

Curli: I googled and found this. if only I had the skills to do the tie.
