CbL Blond Ambition, My Broken Down Crop Duster

Please do not adjust your computer screen.  You have not entered the Twilight Zone (although DAMN that was a good show), you have reached my new and improved blog atmosphere.  It has not been easy, it has not been a good time.  But I sure hope you like what I've done.

I had been working with a blog designer.  What a mistake that was.  She didn't listen to what I wanted, she did what she wanted and it was a huge disaster.  Stupid me didn't think to back up my blog before she installed her vision, not mine and I was left with crap.  Yes I got most of my money back.  I did keep the header she made from my idea and the social media icon buttons.  The rest I deleted and started over from scratch all by myself.

I spent over 4 hours googling how to HTML code, reinstalling stuff I had before that had been deleted and generally starting over from nothing.  So far, I am pretty happy with it. I plan to still mess with the fonts and try to figure out how to make her social icons bigger.  I did figure out how to center them.  Go me!  But the overall feel is done.

I plan to live with this for while, see what I think.  Maybe in the future, I will hire another designer, but for right now, I'm happy with how things look.

PLEASE let me know your thoughts, comments, ideas for change, anything.  I really want you to be happy here when you come to visit.

Now today's mani started out happy enough.  Then in my mind, it got ruined.  But people on Instagram sort of liked it.  I'll let you decide.

Here's the silly bottle shot.

This is Colors by Llarowe Blond Ambition and My Broken Down Crop Duster on the outside, Mundo de Unas stamping polish in Mustard and Chocolate on the inside.

I started with the two CbLs.

I still have yet to wear this Blond Ambition as a full mani.  It's SO blingy, I'm afraid it will blind me! HAHA!  Man these two are just amazing holos aren't they?

Next, I ruined them by stamping on top.  One you can't see, the other takes over the bling.  I tried to do a Thanksgiving theme with Bundle Monster plates BM H-11&12.

What you can't see are pumpkins and vines on the middle nails.  Oh well, they can't all be winners right??????

Again, please send me your thoughts on my new blog design.  I'd really love to hear from you!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
