IT WAS ALL A DREAM

I'm not saying Im "back" back, but I'm gonna give it a shot. I know I disappeared, for almost a year!! And those who follow me on facebook should know some of the reasons why I left. But to put it in the simplest terms - all the joy of blogging was gone and it turned into all work and no play.

Sooooo, I'm gonna give this a go again but under MY terms. I really wanna get back to what made me want to start blogging in the first place - a love of painting my nails and doing nail art. I think I got a little too wrapped up in product reviews and having to post all the new collections and all the new stuff first, and honestly that isn't what motivates me, nail art and painting my nails is what does. I'm not saying I won't do any reviews in the future, but they will be few and far between or done on a collection that I just really love!

These pictures were of a mani I did last night. I couldn't quite capture it with my phone so I busted out my real camera and it just brought back some good old blogging memories. So here we go ladies!!

I used Nubar Swiss Chocolate. For the accent nails I used a bright pink base color and then covered those babies in LA Splash loose glitter.

Yayy welcome back!!

I took a little break for the same reason (plus I was running out of money LOL), and sometimes, you really just need to take a step back from blogging to catch your breath.

I love the mani, and can't wait to see what's next!!

We all need a break from blogging from time to time. Between drama and/or it just not being *fun* anymore, I understand a hiatus. I'm lucky that I've gotten to know you better on FB than through blogging, so I feel lucky that way. But I'm seriously stoked you're gonna blog on YOUR TERMS! <3 <3

Makeup Zombie said...

Oh yeah and your nails ROCK.

It is so nice to see a post from you!!! I really missed reading your blog! To be honest, I don't care about seeing the new collections on here. I just like seeing your nail art and manis. (And the occasional pics of Dinky, Bananas and Fat Meaty) It's your blog, do what you want! :)
