February and Roses

I have a confession to make. I actually started participating on Facebook.  Yeah, it only took like three years, but I'm there.

I actually started my own holo lovers group.  If you are a holo freak like me, please do join my group.  It's called Fingers Freakin Holo Freaks.  We talk holos and more holos. It's pretty cool so far.  I've no idea about these things, so I'm learning as I go along.

The sun has not been around much lately.  They are calling for snow again.  At least this time they are saying it'll just be flakes flying with no accumulation.  I am convinced Spring just ain't coming this year.  My daffodils are almost blooming.  The other thing I had done earlier this month was cut my 6 foot climbing rose bush down to the ground. So far there is no sign of new growth.  Damn I hope I didn't kill it.  The problem was, it was looking so scraggly and several branches were dying and it just didn't look healthy at all.  A coworker told me to cut it down and it'll regrow.

I sure hope it does.  Otherwise I will be very sad because this rose bush grows the most gorgeous salmon orange color flowers.  So pretty and unique.  Cross your fingers people!

I'll post pictures of them if they do in fact grow back this summer.

Now onto the mani for today.  Here's the silly bottle shot.

This is Enchanted Polish February 2014 and Liquid Sky Lacquer Moonlight & Roses.

I started with skittles.

Yup I told you I had to nub again. I am still having issues getting the shape right.  Next I was inspired by the very awesome Judyrox on Instagram.  So I taped and freehanded and it's a sort of failure but what the hell right?  She totally inspires me and does these amazing geometric perfect designs.  Swoon.  Anywho, here are the results.

Close Up
Not quite as perfect as hers by far, but notice anything? No smearage.  I used Seche this time for the final top coating.  As much as I love HK top coat, it is thin and seems to smear my final results.  So I will use both from now on.

Are you guys liking my new freehand stuff?

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
