MMM: Meekay's Manicure Monday!

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Here in Colorado it was a scorcher! Admittedly, Saturday was WAY better than Sunday, and even better than today! Me and the man stayed home amongst air conditioned comfort.

It doesn't help that a good portion of Colorado is on fire. This morning smelled like I slept near a campfire, and woke me up with a start because I thought a field close by was on fire. All in all, not a beautiful, nor a nice day in Colorado today.

At least the butterflies were floating on a bed of bubbles...
Icky bubbles.

I have my manicure that I currently sporting to share with you, however I discovered that I needed a new top coat since my Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat that I bought when I first started doing my own manicures seems to bubble super bad when it dries, I have tried everything to not get it to bubble too! So much so, that it took me 4 hours to do my nails, waiting super long in between layers. I don't know about most people who do at home manicures, but that seems like an excessive amount of time... even when applying a normal dry top coat.

It's a Girl! \0/

For this week's manicure, I used Opi's It's A Girl in two layers, and then placed a fimo purple butterfly on my ring fingernails. :D I really enjoy these accents, and they are super easy as long as you cut them thin enough. I had my boyfriend cut them for me since he has a super steady hand and is good at cutting things.

Freshly painted nails, with purple butterfly accent.
You can order the fimo accent canes on Amazon, and I would suggest obtaining an Xacto knife to cut with. I will put up a tutorial on how to apply fimo nail accents soon!

I ordered some Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat from Amazon, which came today. This top coat is all the rage amongst friends and the nail bloggers I follow. I will put a review up later after my second manicure, to give everyone the full idea of why everyone loves it so much!

Back story:
I have been a nail biter all my life, until recently. I had acrylic nails for almost two years, and since acrylic nails are so hard to bite off, so I seem to have broke my habit that way.  Until now, I never really cared about painting my nails, so this is a new experience for me. So far, I love having my natural nails, and wouldn't think of biting them, besides, they are REALLY THICK!!

I hope you have enjoyed the first installment of MMM, look for more in the future, with better pictures!! :D

This post is my own, as are my opinions.

Wallpaper Wednesday

Hey everyone! I am back from camping, alive and didn't see any bears. I want to share a quick post Androinerdy post to show you my new phone setup. I finally got my replacement phone where I like it.

I am using Go Launcher Ex on my Samsung Epic 4G Touch with the Ice Cream Sandwich theme pack applied.
The wallpaper is Pawakit's Pixel from this month's premium chance item, Rainbot. And the clock is One More Clock - Zehro's Conky Clock stylized in blue (specifically #ff00bdff).

The wallpaper is Derlaine's Dee Saturate from the premium CI, Rainbot, as well!

Let me know what you think in the comments!

Now of to watch some Fairy Tail and eat some pizza! Manicure later! ;)
