The One With ISSE Long Beach

At the end of January I was in California for ISSE Long Beach! The Next Top Nail Artist finalists competed live and there was a party for the Top 12 to announce the winner. It was so great to finally meet all the other finalists and judges in person. Annnndddd I got to go to the Central Perk set from Friends which was literally the best thing in the whole word. So overall.. I had a lot of fun and shopped way too much....

I need some super cool nails so I decided to put some claws on to give myself a little more room to play. I literally could not function at all with these things.. It took me about 5 whole minutes just to put a ponytail in my hair. I got used to them eventually but they are not going to be a permanent addition... Way too hard to do nails with these.. 

The One With the Skingraft Nails

Hellllooooo my blog! Long time no see! I feel like a broken record and I'm always saying this but.. yes, I am the worlds worst blogger. I need to stop with the on and off and actually post regularly. So from now on thats what I'm doing!.. or at least until WWBS (Worlds Worst Blogger Syndrome) kicks in.. Yup. I gave it a name. Thats what I shall call it. Is that weird.. oh well.

Sooo. Since I last left off I've been super busy and a bunch of things have been going on. If you want to stay up to date with everything you can check out my instagram because I'm on there for 99% of my life. My most recent adventure has been New York Fashion Week! I worked a bunch of awesome shows but Skingraft was definitely my favorite. Pretty much everything was black with gold hardware and fur pom poms so it was right up my alley. The show was super awesome and the clothes were amazing and I knew it must be put on my nails.

Challenge #2:
This challenge was sponsored by Entity Beauty. We were asked to create a set of nails using 3D designs that went along with their ad promotion: "You've always been mysterious". I had absolutely NO idea what I was going to do at first. Literally.. mind blank. So I looked around online and found this awesome picture and decided to use it as my inspiration.

More fashion inspired nails today. These are from Balmain's Resort 2012 collection. I wore these a few weeks ago to Long Island Nail Tech Network Day.
