missoni nails inspired by this fabric that became my new camera case.  I had so much fun using so many colors!  also, this is my first “real” nail art in a while.  I’ve been so busy!  feels good to be back.

had a nail-painting fundraiser for my friend, Melanie, last night!  she’s going to Japan this summer for a short term missions trip and we thought it would be a fun way to help support her while she’s there and to get away from our study guides, textbooks, and Word documents to chat for a while before summer.  I did a gradient “workshop,” and did some swatches.  I love seeing young women come together over polish to love and care for one another!

black French tape manicure!  I’ve really enjoyed wearing it for the last 24-hours or so.  I suggest giving it a try!  I based mine with a sheer color first, really evened out the tone of my nails.

finals = blog death

I know y’all feel me on this one.  I made a list of my final assignments and then wept over it.  basically you’ll be seeing mostly swatches from me until the close of this semester (May 11th).  whomp.  hope you understand!!

in other whomp-worthy news, my camera went all wiggity-whack on me and is not working.  SOOO I’m in the market for a new camera that can take sexy pics, specifically on the macro setting.  what’s a girl to do?
