Sometimes You Have to Use What You've Got to Get What You Want...

I painted so many nails this past weekend that I had no time to do my own. Then I got an order on my etsy page and I do not paint my nails if I am going to be painting posters or frames or anything like that because splatter is inevitable and it will ruin my nail design. But today, I got tired of staring at my boringly plain nails so I used what I've got to get what I want... Or... Wanted...

What I got:

What I want(ed):

Tomorrow I will be heading to what is arguably the happiest place on earth... That's right... I'm going to Disneyland with my niece and nephew... I dont too much care for Mickey Mouse but I am trying to get into the spirit of this trip (because I really don't feel like going) so because I had just finished making this:

I used what I've got to accomplish these Minnie Mouse nails...


Overall, I feel meh about them. I don't like using paint on my nails. But it'll do until I get to my polish stash at home... I plan on using actual nail polish to make Eeyore nails. But until then, these will suffice...

Also, I'm gonna see if I can talk little sister #2 into letting me paint piglet on her nails...

Not gonna post from Disneyland but I will certainly post when we get back...

Stay classy.

Peace... And much lacquer to you.






P.S.
Oh! I announced the winners to my Lupe Fiasco ticket giveaway today on the LupEND blog. I'm so excited for the winners! Check them out here...

I Go Hard in the Motha-Effin' Polish!

This weekend, I painted hella posters and hella nails... I think it's safe to say that just like Waka Flocka, I go hard in the paint (and polish)!
I was with my real sisters, sorority sisters and friends all weekend. And after countless hours of begging, they all allowed me to paint their nails! I was too juiced about it all! Take a look at my work (WARNING: Feet pics ahead!):


 These are the posters I made:
The Nupes very much enjoyed their hospitality suite. The Rho's set them owt!

She's a Nicki Minaj fan...  

And now on to the nails!

These beutiful Niner inspired nails belong to Isis... Little Sister Curious george who has yet to give herself a big sister name (But I think she should call herself Big Sister Ice, Ice Baby. Lol)... As you can see, she bites her nails...




Tribal Envy for Ms. Shanice... S.K.A. RHOyal NutKacĪ£


These Peace out Purple, flowers belong to Janelle... Not a soRHOr but still the homie...




Lightening Strike for my sweet, eternal neo Teezy S.K.A. Dean Big Sister Slow Your RHOll...


Blood sister #2... With old faithful, leopard...


Blood Sister #1 with galaxy nails. She loves these too much...


The homie Toccara with that good tribal design...


I was so busy working on everyone elses nails that all I had time to do to my nails was this:

That's right... NOTHING! Can you believe that?! I never walk around with my nails all plain and unpainted. Thats crazy to me! I'm definitely going to try my best to paint them tonight, though...

Ok, that's all...

If I paint them tonight, then it will definitely be for Pink Wednesday, so I'll post then...

Stay classy.

Peace... And much lacquer to you.




P.S.
I just got tickets to see my most favorite singer other than Erykah Badu (who is my ultimate number one favorite singer)...

So excited about this! You jelly?!

Pink Wednesday: Exhaustion Abounds...

I went way too hard in Rite Aid and Walgreens yesterday morning. I ended up buying 10 new polishes (ridiculous, I know. I'll post a pic of them all later.). But since it's Pink Wednesday and I had two new pinks to choose from, I had to try one out...

Initially, I had planned on doing somethinng super elaborate and using both of my new pinks but then life happened and I ended up being out until almost 3am engaging in shenanigans of an astronomical proportion. But there was no way I was going anywhere with this still on my nails:


I did not like how this design turned out, which is why I didn't post it...

Anyway, I decided that I would not go to sleep until I did my nails with something new and (obviously) pink, even if it wasnt challenging. So I just did old faithful; leopard nails.


Even though this is pretty plain for my taste, I love the color (Sally Hansen Coral Reef) and I like the way they turned out. However, when you are deliriously tired, it's probably best not to paint your nails before turning in... This is what happens when you fall asleep almost immediately after painting your nails:


Smudges! Grrrr...

It's still cute though. Not so cute that I'm not gonna take it off tonight, but cute enough...

Stay classy.

Peace... And much lacquer to you.

So Hood...

I know I'm like 4 days late posting this. I have been all gas, no brakes since the night my newest sorority members had their coming out show. It went so well and I am so happy and proud of them!

Now, on to the nails... This is what I did:
 Ten Pearls, 2 rubies

 Paw prints because  our mascot is a french toy poodle

Beware the pretty poodle



I really like the way it turned out and so did my sorority sisters. Hooray for the neos!
 #1: Lil Sis Cool Runnings & #2: Lil Sis Curious George

 I love you girls!!! Be OWT!
 Kujitoa in the House!

Look at all the gifts they got!

We also sent them to the Long Beach Step Show! And our sorority won the show!!! Check them out!!!
Stay classy.

Peace... And much lacquer to you.

Mid-day Snack... iREP the Bay!

If you read my posts, you know that if I am going to paint, then I don't change my nail art until I'm done with that project. So I thought I'd do a little mini-post to show you why I didnt paint my nails last night... I was painting this instead...

I painted this at the school that my Dean works at in Oakland, CA. We wanted something the kids would relate to. My Dean loves E-40 and we both are so proud to be Bay Area natives... We had to do it! Hakuna matata is the motto cause you only live once... We out here trying to function!!!



Ok, that's all...

Stay classy.

Peace... And much lacquer to you.
