I Might Be Crazy

promotional samples ahead

It is no secret by now that I am a nutball. You know it. I know it. Hell, my mailman knows it. That is my path in life and it is a nice path, littered with glitter and coffee. Sometimes, the nuttiness gets the better of me and things happen. Beautiful, amazing, magical things.  


I mentioned last week that I had a bit of an evolving nail thing going on...and then I left you hanging. Well...I always try to deliver when I can! Here is what I did with that lovely manicure from last week.


Colors Used
Carpe Noctem Cosmetics Taupey Tips
Octopus Party Who's Got Their Claus In You
Octopus Party Body Electric
Sally Hansen Luxe Lace in Ruffle




Before you ask, let me say: Yes. I did place the glitter by hand. And yes, I have lost anything resembling marbles. But I am in love. LOVE. This might be the best thing I've ever done. I challenge anyone to find something better. It took me the better part of an afternoon...but ohgod it was worth it.






I don't know when I will do this again. I used a large amount of the SH glitter to make this happen...and I think I would do it again. I've still got the white...
