Keep on swimmin.....

Damn did I just give myself a major scare.  I was doing my taxes and the results were that I owed a ton of money.  This is not good since I count on a refund every year to pay my home owners dues that are due right at tax time.  After crying my eyes out and feeling sorry for myself, I went back and reread some information and realized I had made an error-slight but with huge consequences.  After fixing it, I am now back to getting my normal refund and can once again pay my dues with it.

That's all I ask, that I get enough back to pay my dues.  I break even-makes me happy. The bummer is, I can't efile this year and have to mail in my tax return.  This means a longer wait time to get my money. Hopefully, if I send it out this week, I'll get it back sooner.

Either way, I'm just relieved I found my error.

Last post I told you I had given up on my square nails.  Those lasted three days, and multiple cracked off corners.  I realized I'm just not meant to have that nail shape.  Plus if I file again, that takes the gel off the tips and I have to regel.  I'm already tired of gellin all the time.

This time I vowed to match my nail tips to my cuticle lines.  I think that's how mine are meant to be.  It's only been a day since I did them so I'm hoping they won't crack and break since there are no corners!

Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Liquid Sky Lacquer Thinking Of You and Blue Hawaiian.

Blue is a holo thermal polish.  This will be my very first foray into the world of thermals. I started with skittles.


As you can see, my two middle fingers are different colors due to the thermal.  My issue with this is-I like the bluer color on my middle finger-but that only appears in cold water.  The heat of my hands keeps the color more yellow as is on my ring finger.

Next I stamped using two Cici&Sisi plates 5&11.

Notice most of the time, this Blue is actually a yellow green.  I would prefer it be the other color most of the time.  That's why I've never tried thermals before and now know I don't need anymore.

I mean-it's a cool concept, but I'm not going to keep sticking my hand in ice water just to show you the color change!

Oh and what do you think of my new nail shape?  Rounded and matching my cuticle line.  There are bloggers out there with this nail shape.  I'm gonna stick with this for awhile.  No corners to crack.

Here is a picture of one of the plates I used and my close up shot.

See the fishy is swimming in the water?  That's nail art for ya!  Been long enough eh???????

What do you think of thermals?

How do you decide your nail shape?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
