Still around

Still around just very busy with my grandson. I recently tried Sensationail  for the second time around because I really don't have the time to do my nails like I use to. I liked it the first time I tried this product and I liked it this time also. My hands are taking a beating as are my nails from washing them so much these days and this polish lasted a week without chipping.

Nails base: Sensationail, "Pink Chiffon"
Topping: Sephora, "Celibacy Club"
Top coat: Clear coat forget which one I used

Nail Beads

Happy Mother's Day! I treated myself to a day of polish and bead art. I have had these beads since Christmas. Not sure how long I have had the polish, heh.
First I did a base coat.
Second coat is Revlon Colorstay, "Cafe Pink".
Another coat of Revlon Colorstay, "Cafe Pink".
Top coat.
Then I decided I would try the LA Color Beads.
A few things to note for myself. I need to work quickly and also need to make sure the nail is well coated with polish or there are wholes. When I added a top coat it changed the color of the beads, made them darker so adding a top coat is not a good idea unless you don't mind the darker color.
