Hi guys! Long time, no post, huh?!

Sorry 'bout that! I've been SUPER busy and have lots of news!!! =0)

Most exciting news first,

I have an iPad!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you believe it!?!?!? I still have trouble remembering that it's real. I swear I never thought I'd have one! =0) I've had a flip phone for the last, let's see... 5 years? MORE!?!? So, yeah. Technology doesn't find me very easily much to my dismay...!

So when I was gifted an ipad recently, I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY with how cool it is. Seriously loving it and catching up on tons of lost time- downloading apps, taking pics, etc. Living the mobile life! Lol

Next coolest thing is that MASH sent me a new plate set to review. I've not ever received any products for review until then (or...well...now?), so it's s pretty big deal to me. I have been playing with it for sometime now so I have lots of pictures to share with you guys! Which is the reason I wanted to wait to do the post- I like regular blogger reviews that show an example mani, but I thought it would be AWESOME to wait on the review until I could show a TON of example manis. So that was my strategy... =0)

Next next, I should be receiving a set from CHEEKY very soon to review for you guys, also. Yes, I am super freaking out excited!!!!! Lol. I know we all (well,many of us, anyway!) have been waiting for what feels like FOREVER for CHEEKY to release their "Summer Set." Well, they are doing a short pre-sale right now, and will release the set "for real" very soon! YAYYY!!!

Now, the pic you saw at the beginning of this post was a mani I did a few weeks ago. The base isOPI Swimsuit Nailed It, and I painted the UK flag with polish stripers. I kinda suck (I think, anyway) at painting nail art by hand. However, the union jack is a pretty forgiving patter to do. I kinda just winged it and I thought it turned out pretty cute!


Next up is a punk rock crackle mani that I shamelessly copied from another blogger (i think? If it's yours, let me know so I can credit you!) Although, I did add the 3rd color (the neon yellow-green) - she had used (just!) pink, black, white, and grey. Behold:

I thought it was totally fun! Crackle in 2 colors, black and white and grey theme, but with pops of fun (summer trend) neon colors. I used china glaze crackles, the neon pink is a color club, and the yellow-ish is a Kleancolor.


Waddy a think?!

Feels good to be back! I'm hoping that between the new ipad, and the iMac I'll be more capable of putting together posts the way I want... WHEN I want!!! Lol

Love, end of summer weather, and plenty of NP to you all!!!!!

Ok guys. I get SO MANY EMAILS AND COMMENTS asking me where to get Lynnderella polishes. And I totally understand why! But it's gotten so overwhelming to answer you all individually. I don't have time! lol

Lynn has her own blog (and blogsales) here.

And Llarowe sells her stuff here.

So go forth and buy tons of it! And make sure to tell 'em I sent ya!
Thanks for understanding! Lacquerish =0)
