Where Have You Been?

I have been here, but sadly, have barely even had time to do more than slap glitter polish on my nails.  My career is taking an exciting new twist!!!!

With that in mind, I am posting this link (hopefully) to a Go Fund Me Campaign.  I am trying to get access to more technology for myself and my students as my career booms.

Go Fund Me – Teaching with Technology

I did take some pics this weekend of my nails, so I hope to get back to writing on here, but I think no one should hold their breath too long for that!

Thank you all for your continued support!!!  LOVE!!!!!

Amazon Haul Part Three

Amazon Haul 3

 

Here is the third installment of my Amazon haul.  I love getting something in the mail that isn’t a bill or junk, and when it is from my Amazon frenzy a couple weeks ago, I love it even more!

First, I got my clear rhinestones.

Clear Rhinestones

I use my clear stones more than any others, and I found these for 69 cents, free shipping.  The reviews on them were mixed, but I wasn’t expecting Swarovski for that price.  I am pleased with them.  They came in ovals, kidney bean shape, rectangles, stars, teardrops, flowers, hearts, large circles, squares, bent teardrops, hearts, and small circles.  There are lots in each compartment, and they will be great for all kinds of designs.

Second, I got my neon studs.

Neon StudsThere are circles and squares in each of the six colors.  The colors are very vibrant in person, so don’t let the picture fool you.  These are very thin, so I think they will be great for nail art that I want to stay, because they won’t be jutting out really far from my nails.

Last, the crushed shells.

Crushed Shells

 

Clearly, there are lots of color options here, between pastel and bold.  The pieces are nice and small, but not glitter.  They all have a very beautiful iridescent sheen.  To top it off, compared to name brand kits that run about $20, and you only get one color, I got 12 colors for about $3.

Have you used shells in any manis?  Any tips before I go for it?

Thanks!  Ta-Ta!

Advice?

How many times have you not been able to sleep at night?  Don’t they say that media, like phones, computers, and so on just encourage you to stay awake?  So….why am I on here?  Maybe it’s because I felt this rush after seeing that I had actual views, one follower and one comment after posting just a few hours ago.  (Clearly it doesn’t take much to please me.)  Maybe it’s because I would rather do this than the work that I know needs to be done.  Maybe it’s just because.

At any rate, I thought I would get on here, and ask for help.  I am totally new to this, and I want it to work.  If you could give a piece of advice to kick this off right, what would it be?

Thanks!  Toodles!
