I'm alive- but extremely busy. Between Health Department inspections and preparing for Mother's Day-the busiest, craziest day of the year for us at the restaurant - I don't know if I'm coming or going!
Time for comments on your Blogs and here, on mine, will be very limited this week.
Today, I have lots of errands to run, one of which, is the Post Office- to mail out all Giveaway packages. (I know- I suck! I wouldn't be surprised if I got polished and feathered).
I want to get everything out of the way so I have time to create a layered fauxnadicure this evening. New polishes are calling to me!
In addition to the Zoyas I received the other day, [Charla on bo :( ], I just opened the package of my first BB Coutures, from Overall Beauty...only minutes ago.
Zuma Wave Rider, Love Bug, Horned Devil & Dragon's Breath!!!
All the raves about Kim from Overall Beauty are true. In the almost 50 years I've been around, I can count on one hand- and have fingers leftover, of a Vendor giving me Personal Service. My order was not a large one...4 polishes is a dinky, almost insignificant amount...certainly not one to warrant attention. But that's what I got from Kim, and you know what? That kind of Service is a Luxury today. With time at a premium for everyone, she took the time to reply to a short note and exchange several emails.
And that, my Friends, is exceptional Customer Service.
I will most definitely be plunking down more money for BB Coutures with Kim at Overall Beauty.
This is my honest opinion of my first experience/order with Overall Beauty, I purchased all 4 bottles of BB Couture Polish.
My new set of nails!
I only have a couple of "spots" to file, and LOOK!- no unsightly cuticle wounds!!!!!
2 coats Diamond Cosmetics, Cotton Candy
1 coat OPI, Princesses Rule!
1 coat Seche
"Spots" are raindrops.
Next 2 photos- I would not have dared to show the thickness with my "old" set!
The profile in my new set is "true" to my natural nail. With my old set, I was trying to create a dramatic curve, much like that of my fellow Wicked Vixen, Andrea, from Black Nail Polish and Lip Gloss.
My nails grow flat-ish, and as much as I want Andrea's shape, I am starting to accept the fact that my nails were looking grotesquely thick & unattractive- especially under the Macro setting.
Much better now...
Re-usable nail forms were utilized in lieu of tips for all 10 nails. Tips on my 2 thumbs.
I've just about run out of the liquid monomer I was using, specifically, Aspire brand from Sally's Beauty. I want to switch my system to a professional one. I'm leaning to Creative, but am open to anything that's VERY good. I understand that not too many girls out there are sporting/supporting acrylics, however, I really don't have a choice and am looking for recommendations for systems and E-tailers. I don't have a license, so I need a place that sells to the public. Anyone...please?
