DIY

I’ve always been a do it myself kinda girl.

But I’ve been getting my nails done since I was 15 years old (I’m 39 now fyi), by someone else. The last 10 years I had a great guy I just love doing them, and he was spot on perfect at it.

Wellllllll….he just moved out of state. And it had crushed me that after he went I saw two other people and HATED how they did them. I’m talking full on panic attack, omg you’ve ruined them hate here!

That’s where my do it yourself girl from inside took over.

I went out and spent, well lets just say A LOT on everything I needed. But in the long run this will save tons and tons.

I set out to do them the way I like them, thick, fake, squared off at the tip.

And I’m proud to say in under an hour, and in my husbands sweats (huge bonus right there)

I was able to get just what I wanted, just the way I like, no scratch that LOVE, them.

To me this is perfect a French Gel Overlay over my real nail, no tips. A perfect set of fake nails, and yes the other hand is just as perfect (lol)

I couldn’t be happier!

ps: I have 3 years of cosmetology school under my belt from my fresh out of high school years. So I don’t wanna say run right out and spend the kind of money I did on every thing from a drill and light to gels and files and ect ect.

But I can fully attest that gels are a very easy product to work with, and with the bonus colors or any kind and fills whenever you need and well not leaving the house this winter, I am very happy about all this!

Regards!

And its only Wednesday

Its only Wednesday and this week has already hung me out to dry on a stormy day.

Let me begin with the beginning…

Sunday, Tank my beloved car of 14 years has come to break down. A first for her, only the 2nd car I’ve ever owned. My first car lost to a drugged out idiot running a stop sign and nearly killing me and my 2 children. Oh Tank, how I love this car. A 1997 Camry this has been a great car never needing anymore than basic maintenance in the last decade and a half.

She has failed inspection twice now, and has begun to hemorrhage everything. Just to be able to maybe pass inspection and stop the bleeding of fluids we are talking $800.00, but Tank needs a total overhaul nearing 7-8 grand.

What to do? Do you fix it? Is she worth it? I think so only because I’ve formed an attachment to her, as I do with most things, and I don’t like change at all, ever! To buy a new car or newer car will cost the same as it is to fix her but nearly 20 years old she is, well I just don’t know. This has me up nights.

Monday, I made no money in June not even half what I spent on supplies. Hubs is displeased by this, wants me to stop.

Making me talk of pulling out of my rental space. I am displeased. Though as of today I’ve decided no change will be made and June was just a hard month and he has no understanding of retail.

Tuesday, Mr. Crabs has passed. A hermit crab I bought for my middle son (at his request) for his birthday 3 years ago. This silly lil crab I’ve cared for and spoken to everyday for 3 years, I realize now I’ve come to love it, and am down about this. No pets I tell you loving and losing them is to hard! Even a silly Hermit Crab. The kids still have no idea hes gone, but like I said he was taken care of by me only, not even my husband has noticed or maybe he did and in the man way just said nothing. Kind of like when I dyed my hair purple.

Wednesday, Today…what shall you bring? What change shall you try to press on me? Why must it always be something?

For now I will try to remember…
