What I know for sure.....


HELLO FELLOW FOLLOWERS!!

WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE...
Yesterday was my birthday and I had a great day!!  First, my hubby bought me an HTC EVO phone!!  How exciting!!  I'm rolling with the big boys now!!  It is so cute - I have no idea what I'm doing with it yet - but from what I've learned from it thus far - it is really cool!!  I can read the nb and see the pics at my finger tips now!!  My next present was a new watch from Invicta!  I have become very partial to this brand of watch makers.  Mine is the Russian Diver Invaka and is yellow!  Not my favorite color - but it was from my favorite man - so I won't complain!! 
Then off to dinner we went to Fish Bone Grill.  We had the best dinner there!  I started with a watermelon martini!!  OMG - it was the best flavored martini I have ever tasted!!  Then we had appetizers of Bang Bang Shrimp - which is a spicy breaded shrimp with a creamy sauce over a bed of lettuce - yum yum!!  Fish and Chips for dinner (traditioanl - nothing fancy) and then they brought me a slice of the best chocolate brownie cake with nuts and whipped cream and my name on a plate that said Happy Birthday!!  I was blown away - or should I say I blew out the candle.  It was a great day for me and I am a very happy woman to be married to such a wonderful man.  (why did I not take pictures of this great meal with my new phone I don't know - I think I must have been too sauced from my watermelon martini!!)

Okay - on with the show!!

WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE...
BIOTIN WORKS!!  Once a week I will be showing you my bare nails to watch my nails grow again!!  I started Biotin in February when my nails first broke and I tried it and it was awesome. 
In February I went from this...


TO THIS...
 in just 90 days!!  (I should be doing an informercial!!)

Well this time - I am going to do a technological diary of my nails growing back this time.  These are my nails after only one week of wearing OPI Nail Envy and taking Biotin (as well as prenatal vitamins and drinking lots of water, since I just cut my nails down:


These are just a week out!!

WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE:
The artist formerly known as Prince had a birthday yesterday also!!  Something tells me he didn't go to the Fish Bone Grill and get a slice of Chocolate Brownie with his name on the plate and a single candle.  I could be wrong - but I doubt it!!

Well, I do not have NARS Purple Rain (yet) or Illamasque Baptist (yet) or Pure Ice Purple Reign (yet) - but I do have China Glaze Let's Groove which I hear is a dupe for NARS Purple Rain - but I chose not wear it - I was in the mood for:

Why Plum Power - who knows (it could have still been remnants from the watermelon martini or because it was sitting on my dresser and I wanted to where this purple)

WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE...
NEVER PAINT YOUR NAILS UNDER A CEILING FAN THAT IS ON!!
Look at all those air bubbles - YIKES!!  :-O
Besides the bubbles, the color, IMO is just luxurious!!
This was only TWO COATS!!  Yes, it is just that opaque!!

WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE...
Painting nails under a ceiling fan, not wrapping tips and using SV
causes shrinkage!!
Besides having been charged with a PUI - Painting Under the Infuence - I really like this color and the application.  I even liked the wonky brush!!
So, this was my homage to the artist formerly known as Prince and his
favorite color Purple.

ONE LAST THING I KNOW FOR SURE...
Prince is older than I am - but I am definitely taller than he is!!!

Until next time...Happy Polishing!!
XOXOXOXO

So, tell me - what's your favorite hue of Purple and what do YOU know for sure??

  1. OMG! Happy belated birthday! Super sweet gift your hubby gave you. My friend has one, and loves it...I mean seriously could not live without it. :o)

    Me, I'm waiting for the iPhone 4. Counting the days, pre-order on the 15th then pick it up on the 24th. I feel like Cartman waiting on the Nintendo Wii. Haha. My husband's job is giving him one when they come out (Lucky, lucky)...so I am making him buy me one. :oP

  2. @Laura - just make sure you make him buy you one by making him think it's his idea that he's buying it for you!! I'm sure by the end of the month I should be pretty good with it. My nails won't get in the way with it - that's for sure!! :-) Thank you!!
