Super Sonic Electronic

I don’t know how many of you out there have really known, but I’ve had some computer trouble recently. I didn’t want to post on it until it was all better, but here’s the story.

I have a bad habit of killing electronics. I’ve killed 3 computers, 2 blackberries, an iclicker, a Razr phone, two ipod touches…. the list goes on. They are usually replaced under warranty or I persuade someone to replace them no charge, but on a few occasions, I’ve been stuck and had to pay full price. When I was a freshman in college (3 years ago) during winter finals, I managed to spill an entire cup of coffee on my laptop. It was replaced no charge because of my warranty but here’s the thing, on my 3rd computer later (all replaced under warranty) you can understand why they wouldn’t let me renew my warranty. So, when I was laying in bed last Wednesday drinking broth and still feeling like crap, I coughed, and the broth mug rolled and poured onto my laptop. Since it isn’t under warranty and I couldn’t afford a new computer, I was really upset, to say the least. Rafik took it apart, dried it all, cleaned everything perfectly, and magically got it working 100%. Its better than it was before the accident and its all thanks to him. He saved us thousands of dollars. So, in dedication to him, and to my motherboard, which should be dead but is in perfect working order, I give you…

Not-So-Short Circuit Nails
For this manicure, I started with one coat of Color Club’s Vitabase Coat and one coat of Color Club’s Smooth Operator. I then used one coat of Rescue Beauty Lounge Orbis Non Sufficit as a base, a mix of Icing Envy and China Glaze Snow for the circuits and China Glaze Cheers To You for the soldering. I topped off with two coats of Color Club’s Speedy.
If it weren’t for Rafik, I wouldn’t be able to continue this blog, do most of my schoolwork, or keep myself occupied with the internet. So I for one, THANK RAFIK for the future of this blog :-)
If you’re wondering why my nails don’t look like they’re growing, I keep filing them down until the damage from the gels grows out so I don’t get my hopes up that the weak nail will grow since it will just break. Also, reminder: my nail art contest ends Friday Night! Get on over and enter! :-)

  1. You get wonder ideas from your life experience. Would this art be the 'mother' of all (nail) boards? ;P

    When you come to visit me, would you mind not using my computer, cell phone, TV, cordless phone, etc. etc.? LOL ;)

  2. Your mani looks very interesting and if I'd seen you somewhere, I would have asked you the story behind it.

    I'm a clumsy fool. But luckily, I'm only clumsy when it comes to my phones. I almost always drop it. :)
