Think Pink

Hehe oh I'm so happy! (Oh so happy! Very, VERY happy!) Why you ask? (Or may not be asking...) Well, I have a list actually. *Ahem*
 1. I switched up my blog a bit -- It's spring/summer guys! Time to make the background POP. Do you like? ;) Now I need to change my favicon...
 2. I got a 92% on my World History test. Hands down hardest history test I've ever taken. I swear, I thought I was going to get a B or C on it. Hehe... class average was like a C and I was the only A. I feel bad that it was a bad test for everyone but I'm ecstatic that I still did well on that test.
3. I am getting sponsored by several different companions at the moment so STAY TUNED for some upcoming reviews on some fantastic products. ;)
4. While in college, I have met MANY amazing international people. :) They come from so many different countries and are learning English so quickly! (Some in just 6 months is pretty much fluent!! It amazes me by how well they learn another language and especially while going to college). Anyway, I talk to international students ALL the time. They make me laugh and I love telling them about the "American Culture" while they tell me all about theirs. The thing that really MADE MY DAY though was when Arab gal (I've never talked to her until today!) comes up to me and says, "You are very social and nice. I love how you always are talking to us new English-speakers and you don't make fun of us or smile and pretend to know what we're talking about when you really just can't understand our accents." It was way cute and made me feel really good because it's true -- I love talking to people, ANY people. ;) Especially though when I get to learn new things! <3
5. Finally, I BLOGGED 9x this month! Whoooohoooo! I'm getting better at it too, don't you think? Okay. Maybe not the blogging part (my life is somewhat un-amusing to some.. I enjoy it very much though ;)) but the nails have gotten a lot cleaner and cuter. XD Can't deny that!
WOAH.. I haven't really blogged about my life for a while. ;) This is fun! But let's add some nail pictures to make this even better.  Today I have some super simple pink ombre nails!

Houndstooth Nails

Hello my friends! :) I did these nails last Monday and was going to upload them but I just got way too busy this week! >:( Grrr... I really wanted to continue my streak of posting often! (Because I do my nails often ;)) I did keep these houndstooth nails on for 4 days though! So proud of myself. :) Would you like to see them? Take a look below then! OH! And these are FREE HAND, they are NOT stickers. A lot of my friends kept asking me if they were the stickers and I was like "No! I painted them myself..." Hehe.. ;) Keep reading for more picture spam and such details.

Mooohahaha! So without any further ado, take a took below and see if you're interested in learning how to make strawberry nails. :) *WARNING: This is a COMPLETE tutorial!* I do have the mini tutorial but I've gotten some complaints that they're too hard. (Read the captions please, don't ONLY look at the pictures :p) But anyway, hopefully this tutorial will be extremely helpful for those beginner nail artists! Hehe.. This is as close as I can get to "Video Tutorials" at the moment. I just don't have the time for those. :(
Strawberry Nail Art Tutorial
These nails are super duper easy. ;) All you need is red, green, and yellow nail polish, tape, scissors, and a toothpick/mechanical pencil to draw the lines. :) But let's get started guys!!

What A "Blue-tiful" Blue

WOOOOOOAH! I have been on this swatching run... I have the need to swatch EVERY polish that I own and haven't worn in a while. Alas, bottle views and paper swatches just aren't enough for me. (Paper swatching is when you test out out the polish on scrap paper). So today I decided to highlight one of Sally Hansen's most popular colors (or at least one of their best blues), Pacific Blue. :) And actually I took it one step further by added a coat of spectra flair so take a look below!
Isn't this honestly just magical? Keep reading for more pictures!
