Sunrise Vacation

I reserve the right to not do nail art or anything too fancy while on vacation unless I get a wild hair to do so.

I have not this week.

Let me start with another gellin update.  I told you I was bringing my gel kit with me and hadn't decided if I was gonna soak it all off or do a back fill.  Here's what I did.  I filed it down some, then made a homemade aluminum foil/cotton ball thingy soaked in acetone.  I kept it on for about five minutes.  My dad joked asking if I was trying to contact other planets since all my fingers were wrapped in foil.

When I took off the foils, I still had some gel on there, but I was ok with that.  I then did a sloppy, messy, thick job of it and already need to fix a nail.  I'm ok with that too.  I'm on vacation!

I do have some nice growth to my nails, but it certainly isn't making them magically healthy or anything like that.  So far, I'm happy with how things are.

Here is a sunrise I watched the first night I was here in Myrtle Beach-another of my happy places.

Oh how I wish I could live right on the water like this!  After this though, the sea fog came in and stayed for two days.  I didn't get another sunrise picture.

I did bring with me 24 holos to play with. Mostly Enchanted Polish.  I did bring stuff to do nail art, but I just wasn't feeling it.  So the next 2-3 posts will just have swatches.

This is Enchanted Polish Dime Piece, Hey Jude and October 2013.  I had just gotten October in the mail and wanted to wear it!  The first two pictures are room light, yes I know they are blurry! The last two are flash shots.  I wanted you to see the green of Hey Jude.

I think this is the first time I've ever worn it.

I hope you liked these!  I would rather have something post here even if it's swatches then have days go by with nothing happening around here!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
