Valentine’s Day Mix III.
Valentine’s Day Mix II.
Valentine’s Day Mix I.
"Candy Hearts" mix.
Decided to do some Valentine’s Day glitter mixes over the past week!
I haven’t made any nail content because over half of my nails broke! I wasn’t following my own rules (they’re in a post on how to have strong nails) and it serves me right. Since the new year, I’ve been nurturing my nails and trying to get them back in shape, which has been going alright, so far! They’re still not in the best shape, some are still a bit short. I might give them a little more TLC before I start painting on them again.
I also remembered that I was doing glitter mixes some time ago, so I figured that I could do that while my nails are growing back! I’d hate to leave this blog without content like I did for most of 2013.
I hope everyone’s been doing well. Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter and Instagram @CindysNails, and you can now follow me on Pinterest @xcindyc!
So many snowflake designs are on my dash and I felt compelled to make my own! Besides, I had yet to wear this color. Base color is Studio M’s Blue-ming.
A little inspired by the snowstorm we just had. Base color is Nina Ultra Pro’s Twinkle Twinkle.
(not really, just some fancy Tumblr talk)
So I love that I get messages and e-mails from my followers and Internet friends because it really makes me happy that you even want to communicate with me even though I’ve been MIA for the longest. I’m like that kid in one of your college courses that shows up the first day and you never see her unless it’s exam day and finals week.
Some time ago I went on a teensy tiny pre-rant about a topic that turned me into a grouch… Giving credit when credit is due, be a decent human being, the nail art community confuses me, etc. etc.
And MrCandiiPants herself made a fabulous video (and I watched every second) about when you should give credit, and she said basically everything that I wanted to say. After that I was like “well I think everyone will watch this and that will be sufficient.”
SO someone messaged me and said “I watched MrCandiiPants video about giving credit and I remember when you made a post and at the end you’d go on an actual rant… When’s that going to happen because I want to know what you really think about that”
I literally lol’ed because I thought everyone forgot about that, but really because they caught me off guard. But really, at that time I was highly frustrated with the whole thing, especially since it was happening to me (and still does) time, and time again. And at that point, I didn’t think it was safe for myself to make that rant.
However I think that now that I’ve calmed down for a bit, it’s an acceptable time for me to have that one-sided discussion.
In due time, friends. In due time.
Just a nail art design that I desperately needed for an Art History extra credit assignment :’)
