KOTD: Teal My Flowers Bloom


I know I haven't posted as usual this week but I haven't abandoned the blog! Life is just dealing me some cards I don't like. I'm trying my best to handle it all but its tough. This semester is ending and we are getting close to finals. That alone is stressful and crazy. On top of that, I've had some unexpected family issues going on. My father isn't in the best health but I don't think I'm ready to fully discuss that issue on the blog. I've barely been able to keep up with all the blogs I follow but I've noticed a wave of other bloggers having issues with family members and their health. I simply ask that you keep us in your thoughts/prayers and be understanding of any time lapse you notice in my posting. This has all had an affect on me, bigger than I thought. I'm going to try to keep my sanity during this rough patch but it isn't easy with everything that is on my plate. I promise I'll try to keep up with blogging. But at the end of the day, school and family are #1. If you see that I disappear for a few days, don't give up! I'll always come back! I'll keep doing my nails and taking pictures so I can post it ALL up.

This is the mani I did on Sunday!

This is 2 coats of Sally Hansen's "The Real Teal." Then I used two of the flower designs on M51. I used the larger flower image and stamped that on the top of my ring fingers at an angle. Then I used the smaller flower image and stamped that on all my other nails. I used Konad's Special Polish in White but for some reason it didn't look so white in person after I applied topcoat. It looked more like a very very pale yellow. LOL! I don't understand what happened. Topcoat has never changed the color of the Konad White Polish. Maybe the Teal made it seem yellow.

Unfortunately, this mani didn't last a full 2 days. I suffered some unknown violent attack on my index finger and all the paint came off!

Hope you gals like it!
