Day 357: Shellac Update

image

Okay, I know feet are weird shaped, but I promised to keep you up to date on my shallac toe nail polish.

One of my toenails lost the paint. Oddly enough it was all in one piece. My girl friend said that sometimes if the color was painted to the cuticle it can come off more easily as the toe nails grow.

I have some purple nail polish that I will paint on my nails as they peel off. I think this will make some cute toes with different shades of purple.

Day 354: Pot O’ Glumpki

image

I know I keep posting about glumpki, but I promise this is my last one. The process if very fastinating to me. I haven’t cooked anything similar to this before.

After mixing the meat and rice, blanching the cabbage and rolling the glumpki it is packed into a heavy bottomed pot that is lined with cabbage leaves.

After cleaning the pot I found out why we line it with extra leaves. There were two to four leaves that burned a bit, but all the glumpki were perfectly cooked.

We added four cans of diced tomatoes (I think) and a couple mini cans of tomatoe juice. We used plain diced tomatoes, but I wonder, for next time, how a garlic and herb spiced would taste.

Day 204: Candy Toes

This is my final post on candy corn toenails for a while. Especially since we are almost out of the candy corn season. Maybe I should do Indian corn toes? Hrmmm

I tried a different method this time and I think I like it better. So this what I recommend.

Paint your whole nail yellow. Allow to completely dry then paint orange allowing enough yellow to show. Allow to dry then paint white tips.

The two hard aspects of doing it this way is 1) visualizing how much to paint to allow even amounts of color and 2) allow things to totally dry.

I will have to find another easy winter or Christmas type style to do for the next few months.
Pinterest, don’t fail me now!

Day 177: Corny Nails

image

I know I have posted about these before but I have gotten a bit better at them and I wanted.to show them off.

I also have the correct yellow so I am really loving them.
This time I really got good coats of color on there too. The corn candy nails lasted most of the week and I had to remove it for work anyway–which took forever.

Anyone doing fun makeup or costumes for Halloween?

My costume is almost complete and I can’t wait to share it with you!!!
