We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties

So I was all set to get back to it and upload some new videos this week. Then gremlins came in the night and apparently attacked my laptop. After two days of trying to find and repair the problems it's time to take a break and accept that the videos I've recorded aren't going to get edited anytime soon.

Thankfully I can blog from my phone. (Yes, there's an app for that!) While it's only slightly less frustrating than playing amateur tech support with my laptop, it's a LOT more productive.

The video I have ready to upload will accompany the next blog post (when I can retrieve it and upload it) so stay tuned! I've got some fun stuff from Nails Inc to share....

Smile & Be Beautiful!
(And appreciate working technology, but back up your files just in case!)

Just wanted to post a quick look at the polish I've been wearing. This is Wet N Wild's "Ready to Pounce" (2 coats) topped with Nails Inc's Overglaze Top Coat from the Donmar set.

The WnW polish is from their On The Prowl collection (Fall 2011) and no longer available. Sorry. The topcoat, however, is available at Sephora.

I should add that these are NOT my nails. These are glue-on Broadway nails. It was my first time trying them and I really liked them. I think I'll do a full review on them sometime.

Glamour Doll Eyes & Sugarpill Go To the Circus

and get Lit? Yeah, I took that too far, didn't I? Oh well. After a MUCH longer break than I had intended, I FINALLY had a chance to edit a leftover "holiday/party" look that I recorded in December. I like the look and I haven't done anything with GDE's Circus collection yet, so I still wanted to post it. Here's the look:

Sorry for the Cybil Shepard "Moonlighting" focus, but I grabbed these pics off my video. (Please someone say they get that. Lie to me.)
