This summer is just flying by! My keiki's (kids) return to school on Monday which means it's back to the hectic schedules. I'm exhausted just thinking about it. This past couple of weeks we've been busy with back to school shopping and trying to cram in last minute family outings. Today the kids are with their grandma and that means I have time to do a post!! Yeeeah.
The main reason to which I started this blog was to get in some me time as well as share my passion with others. I find it so nice to relax and not be rushed. I can't tell you enough about how nice change of pace it is. Nail time!! For some reason I've been in a purplish mood. Lucky for me, my daughter absolutely LOVES purple and we have a pretty nice collection for me to choose from. In my last blog, I talked about how I really wanted to try my new black matte polish that I purchased online. If your a polish fanatic like me, then you'd totally understand it when I talk about purchasing tons of polishes and not getting around to using it. <<SIGH>> So today I finally got to use my black matte.

I like it! I especially love how the gloss of the purple and black is against the matte black. Love. I'm still infatuated with my leopard print also...lol. Three things to mention. 1) I like a little color so I tend to do a lot of my manicures with just my tips only 2) I think I'm getting better with my free handing :D 3) This is a matte polish so that means no top coat :<. I'm not so sure how long this manicure will last without a top coat and it being vulnerable to dishes, diapers, and laundry...hmmm. LOL. Oh wells!
Also worth mentioning, I was able to water marble the neon colors!! In my previous post I had talked about trying to use all of the neon colors at once in a water marble but it turned out into a fail job. LOL. But I didn't give up. I kept trying and trying and I finally got it. Pictures in my next post. Thanks for reading!!
