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! :-)

Evenly Uneven

Another simpler design today- its prelim season (a prelim is a midterm but you have 2-3 per semester, not one…)

No real inspiration other than I wanted to try out colors I haven’t used on here yet and I wanted simple and quick, but fun looking :-)

Evenly Uneven

For this manicure, I started with two coats of Color Club’s Smooth Operator Ridge Filling Base Coat and one coat of Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Orbis Non Sufficit. I then used my nail art brush to draw in lines of Sinful Colors Mint Apple. I topped with one coat Color Club 0-60 Speedy Top Coat.

This is my first experience with an RBL shade; I’ve heard such good things and its reputation didn’t do it justice- this polish went on like buttah. One coat of this dusky green creme goodness was more than enough. I swapped three of my less loved shades for one 0.4 fl oz bottle of RBL, but I am in absolute love. Let’s just say, I have a new lemming brand- the ENTIRE brand.

Remember, I have a fantastic China Glaze sponsored nail art contest, so go, read the post, enter, win! I can NOT wait to see what you all come up with!
