Okay, I’m a bit short on time because I have to get bug to bed, but I had to get my update in.

Here is the up close picture. You can see part of the shell that is coming together. I’m almost done with it….


Looking at my last update I’m really happy with how much I got done. I was hoping to have the whole left side done before I updated, but that didn’t happen. It’s making everything come together too.

Here’s the whole shot:


I think I’m going to wait on the back stitching because the left and right sides go together do the outlining is almost the same. Now to go put the princess to bed. Goodnight WP!!


Finally used my magnetic polish!!

I had some spare time today so I thought I’d give my new polish a go. I took off my old polish and put on a base coat yesterday so that cut down on the time I needed.

After reading the directions, I put one coat on and let it dry. And I must say I am extremely happy with the drying time, super fast.


Then I put on a thick coat and held the magnet above it. Here’s my thumb:


And the rest of my nails:


(Who is that puppy sleeping in the back? Lol.)

I love the way these turned out but it looks more black/purple then it does any color of pink. I can honestly say that I will be adding more of these to my collection. They are so easy to do and the effect is awesome.  🙂


Who are you??

Who are you 2***5 and why don’t you want me to have this magazine??


We have both been bidding it up to a ridiculous price but I think $20 is too much for a single magazine. I’ll let you have it because that’s just too much for me. Hmph!!
