Worst. News. Ever.

Okay so as some of you may know,  today was my first day of class in the massage therapy program. It was orientation day so we went over all the rules, got fitted for our scrubs, filled out paperwork... blah blah blah. Well, when we got to the handbook and talked about appearance there was section on finger nails. It said we had to keep them short and such which I already knew and then I read this: "No fingernail polish is to be worn in the class at anytime." ...... NO POLISH!?!?!? WHY!? Apparently, it isn't seen as "professional" :( I will probably try to sneak by with some nude polish.... My heart sunk and I seriously considered dropping the classes for a second (yes, very dramatic lol). BUT HAVE NO FEAR!!! I will STILL be posting on my blog (with polish/nail art), keeping up with my new Glitter Bomb Thursday posts and I will MOST definitely still be buying the new collections coming out... I will just have to swatch everything tho and only wear polish on weekends :( Thankfully, once I am done with the class I can (and WILL) wear whatever polish I want! And I will make sure to find a job that will allow polish. I have 450+ polishes and I do not intend to let them go unused! :)

So there you have it! Just quick venting.. I know you girls will understand/share my pain! Now I must get ready for work and enjoy the lovely polish on my nails before I have to remove it tonight.

I hope you had a better Monday than me!! :P

(FYI, I really do love the class so far and I know I will enjoy the next six months!!) <3

Hello ladies!! As some of you may know, I am obsessed with glitter & anything sparkly (my mom calls me a blackbird hahaha)!!! So I have decided to start a weekly post for myself called GlitterBomb Thursday! I am really excited to do this :) So here is my first GB post:

What I used:
OPI Natural Nail base coat
China Glaze - Icicle (one coat)
OPI - Crown Me Already! (one coat)
China Glaze - Snow Globe (one coat)
Seche Vit

I LOVE THIS GLITTER COMBO!!! I don't really care for Snow Globe over solid colored polish, but it looks FABULOUS over glitters! CMA is hands down my FAVORITE glitter in the entire world! It's so dense and super gorgeous!

As for the update... I start massage school on Monday... YAY! I am SO excited you guys!! I have been waiting to do this for a while and I'm really excited to finally start school. I will be a full-time student and I will have class Mon-Fri so I may slack off a bit on my blog. but I assure you my nails will always be beautifully polished! ;) Because of school (and the loan money that will cover most of my bills, thankfully!) my hours will be cut at work so I may actually end up having more time to spend on my blog (since I get out of school at 3 and will only be working three days a week)! The only down-side to being in school is that I will have to keep my nails very short while I'm still practicing so I don't scratch anyone :( My massage therapist is able to have her nails longer (about as long as I let mine get) and she has never scratched me but she has also had more practice! So I am warning you now... you will be seeing nubs for a while! :(

I hope you guys enjoy my weekly glitterbombs, because I sure love having outrageously sparkly nails ;)

Have a fabulous day! <3

Flakie Layers

I finally have a new post for you, as promised! This is two coats of Wet N Wild - I Need A Refresh-Mint with Essie - Shine of the Times layered over top! I really like this combo :) I  bought all of the new Finger Paints special effects flakies and have been playing around with them but SOTT is much more dense so I used it for this instead. :) The WNW polish is one of the new ones that recently came out also. I bought all but three on the new display I saw at walgreens! I need to do a comparison of this and some other mint greens, I'm not sure if it's a dupe but for two bucks I won't complain if it is!

what do you think? I hope you are all enjoying the weekend! It's been really nice weather here in NC!
