Pitter Splatter

I'm back! Sorry for the brief hiatus, I was sick all weekend. I even left my friend's wedding earlier than I wanted to and went and slept on the floor at the airport because I felt so rotten. Guess that's what I get for overdoing it. (work, blog, projects, etc) After sleeping all day yesterday and most of today as well, I'm feeling marginally better. Hating the hacking and sinus pressure, but I'll live.

Anyway, enough whining, moaning, and talk of lung butter. On to the nails!! ;-D Most of the colors I used in today's nail design are part of the new release of 12 colors by American Apparel (review to come in a few days), these colors are every bit as awesome as their previous releases. They even included a shimmer polish!

I used American Apparel California Trooper as a base, with American Apparel Raccoon for the dark brown, American Apparel Port for the wine color, American Apparel Trenchcoat for the yellowed khaki color, American Apparel Makeup for the pinky tan color, and BB Couture Kelly's Green for the avocado color (totally in love with this color!!). Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Disclosure: Several of the colors used in today's post were sent to me by the manufacturer for review.

  10. So sorry to hear about your sinuses. I know how it feels. :( Thank you for posting new nail pics even if you were sick! That takes a lot of energy.

    I used to have horrible sinus infections (to the point where I missed school, etc.). Use Neilmed Sinus rinse 2x a day and take 3,000 units (usually 3 pills) of Vitamin C pills WITH FOOD 3 times a day. So, with each meal, take 3 vitamin C pills between bites of food. Doing such will get rid of the bacteria in your sinus that CAUSES the infection. The only other way to remove the bacteria is by surgery! YUCK! Otherwise, the antibiotics they give you only kill the bacteria temporarily and allows them to grow back, making you go through a vicious cycle of sinus infections. If you do the sinus rinse and vitamin C pills for a good 1-2 months, you will NEVER have infections again. I suffered with it for a good 20 years before I learned about this.

    Good luck!!!! I shared your site with my classmates at Notre Dame. We are planning on doing nail polish night one of these days. :)

  11. I love this one! you make it look so easy! I'll try it some day.


Go on, comment... you know you want to. ;-P
