Damone Roberts 1968 - A short post!!

HELLO FELLOW AND FAITHFUL FOLLOWERS!!

I still have a blinding headache but knew I needed to bring you something short and sweet....and yes this baby is sweet!!




This was a LE and re-released a month ago - don't know if it's still available - but I ordered this baby as soon as I heard it was available.

She went on so smooth and even and opaque.  She took three coats but easily could have worn well with two coats.

I really enjoyed this color.  I have quite a few mint colors that I will be comping for you in the future - just not right now.

Then I heard that this was very close to the Chanel Jade but needed shimmer...

...so I added some shimmer!!!

I found this 9 pack piece at Ross for $3.99!!  This 9  piece came with a base coat, top coat, this shimmer and 6 other colors!!  What a bargain!!
I put her over the Damone Roberts and it gave it just enough shimmer and shine to make me really LOVE the combo!!

BUT TWO DAYS LATER...HERE IS THE SHORT....

WHAAAAA!!!!!

I broke one nail and super glued it - then I broke another nail completely off and decided to chop them all off and start all over again!!
I KNOW WHAT YOUR ALL SAYING - THEY LOOK CUTE SHORT!!
WHATEVAH!!  (This is probably why I have a migraine!!)
To be fair - it is an adjustment and I think I kind of like them short too.
My nails haven't been this short since I took my acrylics off 6 years ago.
(Those who have had them - know this feeling)  I have been popping biotin, prenatals, water and moisturizing like a junkie on crack!! (Besides my valium!)

Okay - well that does it for me today - this post has taken me 3 hours to write (ARRRG!!)  Oh the things we do to be a blogger for our fans!! :-)

Okay - so the news you have all been waiting for - Tomorrow the secret to my giveaway will be revealed!!  I know you will ALL enjoy it and it will have so been worth the wait!!  I promise you will not be disappointed!!

Until next time - Happy Polishing!! 

(Turns off computer and goes back to bed to hide under the covers)
