Rapid Red

First off yes I have used this color and konad combo before, Only it wasn't this shade. That said now onward. This is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, "Rapid Red" with konad m64. My daughters graduation ceremony is Saturday and the school colors are black and red. I can't draw so I picked a konad that was a bit wild in my eyes. Since the school's mascot is Wildcats. I am so proud of her! I only have a GED so you can just imagine how much it means to me that both my daughters have college educations! My oldest has her associates and my youngest has her bachelors. My youngest daughters ceremony is Saturday at  Central Washington University  even though I have mentioned before that she graduated in the fall and has been substitute teaching and getting call backs, Yeah! The college commencement is held at the end of the school year. K, back to this polish this is a bright red if you love red you will love this shade. Sorry about the konad smears I just do not stamp enough to be good at it. This will work for me though.

Vintage Violet Crackle

Yesterday or was it the day before? My days are so melded together right now and it has done nothing but rain and rain until today. Anyway, I picked up Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat and then this morning was so beautiful I decided to do my nails. I used Sally Hansen Hard As Nails, "Chocolate" then topped it with, "Vintage Violet" Crackle. First the Chocolate was a bit runny and had some bubbles. I like the color though. Then I learned that crackle is best done using a thin coat. My ring finger didn't crack well I put the polish on too thick. In the end I can say I do really like this crackle and I love the purple. And yes I chopped my nails some more due to having broken a few while unpacking. The pups loved the sun and as you can see the yard is just the right size for them. And yes I am just rambling it's a rambling day for me. Also I used the word and over and over but since it is my blog I can and.. and use the word but and ramble if I like, heh. Have a good one peeps. I can also stop rambling and go enjoy the day. Oh what a beautiful day!
