Today is a bittersweet day; its the last installment of the OPI Art Series. Firstly, I just want to say a special thank you to Crista over at OPI for helping me to obtain corporate art for the series and for all of the spectacular work she does. Secondly, there is hope for an OPI Art Series part II in the future though I can’t say when, as Crista sent me a ton of artwork and I just need to find out how to translate some more of it onto the nail while fitting it into my schedule now that classes start up on Monday.
Today’s design is a special one since it was the first piece of art that I saw on the OPI Facebook Page which in fact inspired the Art Series. I’m happy with it and I hope that you enjoy it as well!
For this design, I used OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, Alpine Snow, The IT Color, Simply Smashing, The Show Must Go On, Take The Stage, Jade Is The New Black, Black Onyx and Nicole By OPIPrized Possession Purple, Me + Blue, My Lifesaver, Miss Independent, Got Style?, and the hearts from Step 2 The Beat of My <3
Onto more serious matters:
I just want to take a minute to reach out to all of you, my lovely readers, for some help. I graduate in May from Cornell University, and our apartment lease is up 2 days after that. Upon graduation, Rafik and I will have to move and start our “real world” lives. Rafik and I are desperately trying to find jobs but we’ve both come up empty thus far. We’ve decided that we really both like Atlanta, Georgia. I (will) have a Bachelors of Science for Atmospheric Science and he (also a Cornell grad) has a Bachelors of Science for Applied Economics and Management (Business/Accounting/Finance/Marketing etc). I was hoping that if any of you have any contacts or friends in these arenas or this location, you’d find it in your heart to perhaps put us in contact? We’ve both been scouring the internet for careers and we’re both exhausting our resources. We’ll continue to look day and night but sometimes a personal connection is the best. We’re both extremely hard working and motivated and we’re willing to take entry level positions that fit our backgrounds and education. Its SO nerve-wracking not knowing where we’re going to be, what we’re going to do, or how we’re going to get there and we would both greatly appreciate your help. If you know anyone NOT it Atlanta but anywhere on the Eastern half of the U.S., that’s an option too. I really and truly appreciate any information you might have for us because I’m getting to the point where its my last semester and I just have no idea what to do! I like spontaneity for some things, but for a future life plan, I’d really sleep better knowing what we’re going to do. So, THANK YOU in advance in the case that you have any information for me, and thanks for reading through my plea for your help.
