ILNP Fall Semester and Homecoming, plus early vacay pics!

Today's post will have a mixture of early vacation pictures as well as a new to me brand of holo.

I just spent the last few days up in Canada at my happy place. Although the fishing was not great this year, I did manage to catch a 2lb large mouth bass and a couple of rock bass. Before you ask, yes we eat them. I only throw them back if they are too little for me to filet.

Oh yeah baby! I am a fishing rock star!  This was the first year that we didn't stay in 'our' camp as my mom sold it.  I won't lie, I was very saddened by this, as I wanted camp for myself for when I got older.  Sh*t happens and it wasn't up to me.  So we stayed at the neighbor's camp right next door. This was at first very weird, but as I saw how much the family who bought our camp is fixing it up and loving it, it made me feel a little better about things.

I took some amazing pictures with my new camera of the scenery.

Have I mentioned that my new camera takes amazing pictures?????? Holy crap people! It's like you're right there!  Anywho, this was our little spot in Canada.  Mom and I did some kayaking, we did a lot of lounging and I am sunburned on half of me.  It's funny as hell!

OK now onto the mani at hand.  I just discovered ILNP-or I Love Nail Polish as it stands for.  Their Fall holos called my name.  I'm using two for today.

Crap, you'll have to forgive me, as I'm not at home to check on the names of these two OPI.  They are from the latest Nordic collection.  Then there are the ILNP Homecoming and Fall Semester.

I started with the holos.


Not the most holo of all the holos, but damn are these gorgeous!  Once again, I used my Barielle Ridge Filler base coat, as I LOVE it, but I added another layer using Orly rubber something.  Again, I'm not at home for the proper name.  This was to be my driving to New York mani.

Next I used acrylic paint and the two OPI and for the first time, did freehand with brushes flowers.  Came out sort of a wonky petunia if you will.

Pretty cool eh??? I was pretty proud of these.  Now remember that I used two base coats, the Barielle and an Orly. Well I did my nails Saturday morning.  I then fished for three whole days, this is water intensive, worm and fish guts etc.  So for 5 days I wore this mani.  Not my normal two days.  Here is what it looked like after all that.

Only the first two fingers have chips. Normally with my day to day life, I have a chip after a day or two.  This was 5 days and fishing!  I have found me a new base coat combo that lasts forever!  WOOHOO!!

All right, I have to go.  Mom and I haven't seen our soap opera, The Young and the Restless in 5 days.  Did I mention that camp has no internet, no TV, no phone, no shower etc?  Totally an unplugged three days.  I LOVED IT!!!!!!

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
