40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Grey + Color

Hi there beauties!

Today makes for a very special post.  And what makes it so special you say?  Well this is my 1000th post!  Wow, that's a lot of manis and words!!  I've had such fun writing all posts for you and I hope you also enjoyed reading them!

Today's Crumpet's challenge prompt called for grey with color, and my personal one asked for a reciprocal gradient.  I've never done one so I had to google it (fantastic video tutorial by Simply Nailogical here) I used two Colors by Llarowe polishes: "Concrete Jungle" and "Love, Actually".  Check out below what I came up with and for a step-by-step tutorial!

Gothic mani with China Glaze

Hi beauties!

Quick post today since it's almost time to go to bed!

I went to the surgery center again today since they begged me and I was off on time!!  I can't say I"m too thrilled about going there but hey, at least I don't get stuck!

For the next week and a half I'll be reviewing the newest China Glaze collection.  Stay tuned because the colors are stunning!  Today I've got two of them:  China Glaze "Don't Get Elfed Up" (hahaha, that name!!  I love it!) and China Glaze "Coal Hands, Warm Heart" and did some gothic like nail art for one of the IG challenges.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - My Job

Hi beauties!

Long time no talk!!

So check this shit out...  they finally gave us guaranteed overtime after hours, so whenever I get stuck now, at least I'm getting paid.  Fine and dandy, right?  well not so much..  yeah, they're paying us but we've been getting stuck every single day!!  They've increased the number of operating rooms that we can run at 3pm without additional staff.  Gah!  I guess I should get used to staying at least additional hour everyday..

In case you don't know what it is I'm doing in the operating room, this mani will give you a hint =)  Crumpet's challenge prompt called for "Your Job" mani so I delivered!  my full title is Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) which means that I provide anesthesia to patients (in a nutshell I put them to sleep for surgery, wake them up and I'm responsible to keep them alive and pain free throughout the whole procedure).  Check out my mani to see what I came up with!  My base is Glam Polish "Timeless to Me"
