Day 1 – December Advent Calendar Nail Challenge

 December Advent Calendar Nail Challenge 2012


Day 1 – I am excited!!!   Ask me this on day 15, and you may have a different response 🙂


Day One`s theme is: RED


The polishes I used:  Wet n Wild Black Creme (which didn`t show up anyways, oh well :))   Orly`s Devil May Care (2 coats for full coverage) and 2 layers of China Glaze Blonde Bombshell striped down the middle of my ringer finger.




Manicure Mishap

The weirdest thing happened this morning to my manicure.

Last night, I gave myself a manicure with Color Club Revvvolution, and Orly Devil May Care.  And, if you follow my blog – you will know that I am NEVER without a basecoat anymore – so I used Yellow Stopper by ACI.

I did the manicure, applied the topcoat, cleaned around the edges and had them all photo ready for the next morning (I can’t do nail stuff until my son is at school or asleep).

After dropping him off at school, and bringing in the baby all snuggled in her car seat (it is soooo cold here today!) – as I started lifting her out, something fell to the floor, and guess what I found…

I don’t wear false nails, so this was one of my fingernails manicure!!  It must not have like it…

This actually happened one other time, but that was with a 2 layer glue base with layers of glitter and layers of Seche (it was thick!)

This was just weird, and for some reason, kind of icky to me 🙂  But, just for fun I still took photos, and even placed the piece that fell off, back on.


You can see in the photo, that chipping is already happening – so, I don’t know to blame the Yellow Stopper, or the nail polish as they were both first time uses.

Oh well, I just thought I would share this odd story.  Thank goodness it didn’t fall into my daughters reach….she is at the stage where EVERYTHING goes into her mouth (her favorite…dog kibble…so gross)

Enjoy your day!!
