Had a nice weekend with my Chloe.  She gonna be 19 months old this month. She amazes me.  I heart her :)

I got my IBD UV lamp, gels/acrylics. Not sure if I want to try my gels or acrylics first. I found some lovely nail blogs to read. I really like nail art! Esp the ones where people create the most amazing designs.... who knew you could create gorgeous (delicious) desserts on your nails?? I got a package to pick up at the PO tomorrow, I believe it to be my electric drill, and 3d nail art molds! Yay! I'm so lazy to upload pics, but promise... soon!

I have received an ebay order that I placed for some IBD clear full well nails. I thought they were half well but I guess when I use them I can trim the excess off. I also rec'd some glitter and shell to put on the nail tips. I also rec'd my order today. That order included a brush, some dappen dishes, hexagon nail glitter, cuticle pusher, artificial nail clipper and rhinestones. I really like the hexagon glitter, they are small but not microscopic-the perfect size for tip decoration. I really need to get some fine glitter and would love some star shaped ones as well. The shipping from both took about a week. Normally shipping is faster, but with New Years and all, I can understand why it took a little longer. Will post pics later. I'm so anxious to get my gel lamp and gel/acrylic set!!

Today was super crazy at work. Busy busy busy... when I get home it doesn't stop since dd demands all my attention! <3 it doesn't help that I'm still sick! my congestion just doesn't want to go away. When will it end.... *sigh*

I was going through my makeup brushes last night and deep cleaned them all, or at least 99% of them. I found out that I have over 40 brushes. I couldn't believe it. I know that I don't use every single one of them, but would say I probably use at least 75% of them. A lot of them are MAC, I have quite a few Sigma and then some Artistry, ELF, Bare Escentuals, and other miscellaneous brands. Of course I love my MAC, but I also really like my Sigma which are high quality and are very reasonable priced, and very comparable to MAC. Surprisingly I use my ELF $1 e/s brushes just about every day to blend.... they're soooo good at blending! The bristles are so soft too. However for long lasting, high quality, least shedding brushes, I will continue to buy MAC.

My MAC e/s collection has topped 100 a while ago I think. I have a large selection from their permanent line, and some d/c ones, and a bunch from diff collections including holiday sets and other quads. I'm trying to use the ones I haven't used in a while and make them more noticeable. I used to be scared of color, but I LOVE makeup, so why be so subtle? I'm still learning how to apply and mix colors and use pigments * <3 * so if you know any youtubers I should keep my eye out for, lmk!

Anyhoo its off to bed soon, since i'll be up early again for work!
