hi there! happy monday!
last week marked my second week at school for the year (even though students have been there since the day after Labor Day). it was a great and super busy week. i put some finishing touches on my classrooms, went to band practice (we're gearing up for our Christmas concerts: SO excited!), and basically attended about three different meetings/ appointments besides that.
oh, and i found a new place to live. and i am probably going to move next weekend.
it's been a whirlwind kind of month around here... but i know it's what God wants me to do and where He wants me to be. and i take comfort daily in that reminder :D
so... today i actually wanted to showcase some manicures that i sported within a week of each other. now, usually i don't do stamping that close together (time!) but i've been getting a LOT quicker, so i did it anyway.
the first picture is of the manicure that i wore to my interviews when i got the job. so it was a pink base from China Glaze and then the black konad polish on top with a Cheeky super size plate. my nails are quite large, so it's a bit of a pain to get a design to transfer cleanly to my whole nail.
so, yeah. this is the not so good stamping picture example. i loved the colors and the design on the plate, but i know i was in a bigger hurry, so that might have contributed to the messiness.
next, this is the manicure that i wore for the first Friday of my teaching week... red and black happen to match the colors of both schools i'm teaching at, so i thought it was perfect!
i used a red China Glaze base and a sparkly (think ruby shoes--Dorothy style) Finger Paints polish over it. then the konad special polish in black with the zebra print plate (konad as well). i also too the time to make my ring finger a bit more blingy... the little jewels were something of a pain to place perfectly, but i love the end result. lots of shine in the end with the Seche Vite top coat.
thanks for stopping by! xoxo
