L8R Miami... Hello St. Louis!

Hey Ladies!

Long time no see! Life has been crazy but its stabilizing again. I am officially in St. Louis for the entire summer! So, an update: I finished finals and I started to prepare myself for the summer. I had to pack for my vacation and start packing for St. Louis. Then I went on my cruise vacation and it was awesome. Wish the vacation would have been longer. But don't we all wish that? LOL! Then I came back from my vacation and I immediately had to finish packing because I was leaving for St. Louis the next day. Packing for 2 months is not easy. I didn't want to overpack but I didn't want to be limited to 2 pairs of jeans and 5 tops all summer. LOL! That was an overwhelming experience. It looked like my closet had thrown up all over my room. It was a war zone!

So now I'm in St. Louis and I've been here for a little over a week. The first week was very hectic. I started summer classes right away so I was doing homework. I was trying to find a way to accommodate all my stuff. I was trying to get used to the new routine. And if that wasn't enough, I had my first terrifying experience on Day 2... Tornado Warnings! I'm from Miami. We don't get any of those there. All we get are hurricanes. Personally, I prefer a hurricane over a tornado. Hurricanes give you plenty of warning that they are heading your way. Plus, homes in Miami are built to withstand them. However, a tornado doesn't give you much warning. It's more like "BAM! I'M HERE!" And can you even build a structure to withstand a tornado? Either way, we got bad weather and were under tornado warnings for most of the day. So I was glued to the news and had no idea where things were happening. Imagine that while being in a new city. I didn't know where the counties and cities they were mentioning were located. So I didn't know how close or far the tornado sightings were. I was literally sitting there with a map open on my laptop trying to follow the news. And then I heard the tornado siren going off outside. I think I almost crapped my pants... Seriously! I hope I never hear that thing again in my entire life! Luckily, nothing happened here. 

Needless to say, my nails have been naked for far too long now. I finally painted them this week. Go figure I chipped a nail the next day. LOL! I'm going to post up the backlog of manicures I have and then I'll start posting my most recent ones. You'll notice when I reached recent ones because I don't have a light box here. So I have to depend on the sun to get good pictures. Well, enough of my rambling and on to the nails!

This is Chrysanthe-mum's the Word from FingerPaints Spring 2011 collection. Yeah, the bottle doesn't have the name on the bottom sticker because I got this collection from a blogsale and they had received this collection for review. I'd describe this as a pastel lime green. Very appropriate for spring and summer. The formula was great. 2 coats for full application. I then applied 1 coat of China Glaze's L8R G8R to my ring finger because I was bored. LOL! L8R G8R is a light green holo from the OMG Collection.

Happy Polishing!
