Almost Done....

Hey lovers!
Just want to update you on what's been going on since we last talked.

However that means it's crunch time...I'll be doing a 400 question theory test next Tuesday...and  a 4 hour practical exam the week after...

So I guess you could say that I'm feeling a little overwhelmed...
BUT! That means in 2 weeks, I'll be a CERTIFIED NAIL TECHNICIAN!!!

Little bit about what I've been up to...
I did the marble mani above with the gel polishes I bought. I recently got addicted to the pressed glitter technique GLITTER BOMBS!!!

Also, I sent these two manis off to VEGAS...I'm a little bit jealous....

So that explains my recent MIA tendencies...but we're almost there! So bare with me...

......When school is done, I'm throwing a party.....

Thank you all for putting up with my awkwardness....your love and support means the world to me.
I love you all!!!!

oh yea....

Have a wonderful weekend, my loves!

Product Review: KKCenterHK Triangle Studs

Long time no talk, I've been a bad blog mom....but don't worry, I'm back!!
Today I have a product review for these amazing Triangle Silver Studs* from kkcenterhk!

 These studs are 5mm in size, and each package contains approximately 50 pieces of these hardcore studs.

For this mani, I created the gradient with China Glaze- Tart-y For The Party and Aquadelic
What a great colour combination!

My thoughts:
Studs are awesome. Soon, I will be hoarding all shapes and sizes...I just know it!
They are a great way to instantly spice up a manicure!
Depending on the shape and size of your nails, they may or may not stick out on the edges.
I would recommend securing the studs with either nail glue, or a good amount of topcoat to seal it in!

But of course, I couldn't just leave it at that...

Here comes the exciting part!
Where can I get this exciting product, you might ask...
Well wonder no more!

May Flowers

I have a short post for you today!

We've moved onto the acrylic portion of the course in nail school...and I thought I'd try my hand at some 3D acrylic art! Starting with some May flowers....after April showers (get it? ha?)

I incorporated gold chains and studs into each tip to tie everything together.
This gradient is so pretty, I almost didn't want to do anything with it!

But I'm glad I did....

Did you know...
That there is only ONE MONTH LEFT until I become a CERTIFIED NAIL TECHNICIAN?
I am beyond excited.

That's all for me today!

Have a SPLENDID day, friends!
