Pink Glitter Nails with 3D Roses

I had the day off work and used it all up on myself!
I feel very guilty.
Did my nails and documented it so I could share it with you.
I also spent the day watching the Pink Panther movies that Mr. Jimmy got me for Christmas. You can hear them in the video. So funny! Nothing like good old fashioned slapstick to make you chuckle.

I used Martha Stewart sparkles again. I like that they're subtle. The colours are transparent when you mix them with the acrylic powder and liquid.


I also used nail tips this time. I usually sculpt the tips using nail forms, but I wanted to see if this was any faster. I think it was faster. It took me about an hour and a half to do these nails. (Not counting the two and a half hours of video taping and editing.)


This is a pretty true representation of the colour. They are barley pink.
They're so girlie!


Hard to get a good shot of the rhinestone. These ones were heart shaped and pink.

The video!
Hope this helps you see how I do my nails. I think people are curious as to how long it takes to do them because I change them so often. It really doesn't take that long. Especially when you consider just putting nail polish on natural nails and letting it dry takes about an hour.

Mom's Embroidered Apron.

I made my Mom an apron for Christmas.
I embroidered birds and flowers onto it with DMC floss.

I really liked the old school tattoo art style birds in the pattern I used.
It was a Hobby iron on transfer made by HA Kidd and Company,


Some flowers and a ribbon.


Almost done.

I put some pockets on the apron so she would have someplace to put stuff. This was on one of the pockets and the little bird was on the other.

Oh yeah, here is a pic of the giant icicles from inside the house. They're growing longer and stronger every day.
Hope everyone had a great holiday.
