Sincerely Yours

WOW its been FOREVER! I know I’ve been missing in action and to all of you who have been messaging me and wondering where I am, I’ll explain. I’ve been looking hard for work and nearly had a lead or two but they all fell through. I’ve decided that while I’m still a meteorologist, I’m also going to branch out into the creative side of advertising. I’ve really had to focus on searching for work and prioritizing my time so the blog fell onto the back burner. HOWEVER, I do have a design for your today!!!

 

You know how I get strange inspiration? I was browsing the clearance bins at Barnes N Noble and they had GORGEOUS stationary on sale. Unfortunately the ones for T and F were pink/purple which clearly sucks for me, so I just snapped pictures of the patterns I loved. Hence, today’s design:

For this design I used OPI Nail Envy as a base, with two coats of OPI Dating A Royal. The design itself includes (all OPI) Alpine Snow, Black Onyx, Golden Rules!, and What’s With the Cattitude?, topped off with a swipe of Seche Vite.

And since a little birdie told me you all like to see the inspiration:

Obviously not quite as detailed as the stationary but seriously, my nails are only so big! :)

 

So yeah, missed you all! I hope to post more regularly now because I’ve realized that I can’t stop doing my blog because I’m looking for work- if I don’t do my stress-relieving-hobbies, then the job search burns me out and I get depressed and can’t focus. So spending SOME time on “me” time helps keep me fresh. So look out, you’ll be seeing more of me again! xoxo Tara The Terror

Trippy Hippy Dippy

I wanted to do a fall colors design that was unusual today. So I did! :D Its a bunch of earth colors and its meant to be a little scattered and abstract….

I started with OPI Nail Envy, then two coats of French Quarter For Your Thoughts with Alpine Snow sponged over it. I then used Road House Blues, Alpine Snow, Uh Oh Roll Down The Window, and Golden Rules for the designs. I sponged some Golden rules and as it got tacky I pushed some lines into it with a clear piece of plastic for some texture. It’s topped with Seche Vite.

 

Keep the nominations for the Palette Awards coming! I’ve already gotten to check out some truly lovely blogs and I’d love to see more! No blog is excluded from this and the more the merrier! Nominate your favorites, your own, your friends’, or ones you’ve stumbled on passing through!

Bob Barker’s The Man

I felt like doing a FUN design today so what better to do than an old game show!! Today’s design is based off of The Price is Right!

 

For this design I used all OPI, Nail Envy, Don’t Mess With OPI, Suzi Says Feng Shui, Dating A Royal, Gargantuan Green Grape, Green-wich Village, You’re Such A Kabuki Queen, What’s With The Cattitude?, The IT Color, Black Onyx, Alpine Snow, Golden Rules!, Quarter of a Cent-ury, and Seche Vite Top Coat.

 

This design is the logo of the show, the main background (green thing), the Plinko game, The Giant Wheel, the pointer on the wheel and then on the other hand is the contestants guesses for prices- 100, 2, 698, and 1 and then I gave myself a contestant name tag :)

 

 

Some of the polishes in this post were sent to me by the manufacturer. For further information, please see my disclosure statement.
