I wasin inspired for this look by this post on BellaSugar yesterday, I pulled out my leopard plate as soon as I got home I was so excited to experiment.

I did my favorite manicure yet last night and it was so EASY. (Check out my nails page for more on the Konad system) I did the silver basecoat and put a diamond coat over that to make it sparkle more. I stamped the leopard over it in black then messily dotted the pink randomly! Then a top coat of Seche Vite and the whole thing was dry in 5 minutes. The hardest part was honestly putting the pink because my hands are SO SHAKY. I am like a spaz. I've said this before but please don't say you don't have the patience for this type of thing. PLEASE. I don't know why but I kinda feel insulted even if people didn't mean it when they say it. I am neurotic I will be first to admit that. I also have ADD.

I haven't done an outfit today and I don't know if I will. I like what I am wearing but my skin is freaking out. :( I get self conscious as all get out.I got a Clarisonic about 3 weeks ago and I honestly have seen no improvement at all in my skin if anything it is worse. Dave on the other hand it worked miracles on. BAH. Figures!

What are your plans for this weekend?

Ours needs to be low key. OY. NEEDS!

Hi Hilary,

I am sorry you have not seen improvement yet in your skin with the Clarisonic. Your skin is most likely still getting use to the product and expelling what is beneath. This process could take a few weeks until you actually see an improvement in your skin. Please don't hesitate to contact our customer service at 1-888-525-2747 to discuss your questions and concerns. Thanks!

NAILS! They look amazing. I might have the patience for this, but I don't have the skillz. Or, y'know, the toolz. But, wow, I'm writhing in envy over how cool your nails look.

Love them! I reaaaaally want to get some Konad stuff, but keep finding other things to spend my money on. Like car payments and my "new" computer that I just haaaaad to have and have been making payments most of the year. *sigh*

It's not that I don't have the patience or skill for doing my own nails, it's that I tend to pick off any nail polish I have on. I blame the nail polish I had as a kid that was designed to be removed by peeling. I used to sit in church and try to peel an entire nail's worth off in one peel.

They look so cool! You've inspired me to actually try painting my nails once in awhile.

I like seeing your reviews and designs, because getting into nail-art is a daunting thing. Getting a 'sneak-peek' once in awhile is really awesome.
