Wal-mart haul

Made a quick trip to Wal-mart tonight and picked up a few new pretties. It's been a long time since I've looked through Wal-mart's make-up section. I usually go in and out as quick as possible. I didn't get to look to long as hubby was with me and it was quite late. I'd been wondering where I could get Pure Ice nail polish and I found it there. Great colors and for only $2 bucks a bottle. I have to say I was looking at the other brands Maybelline, Revlon, etc. and for the same price or less I can get OPI, China Glaze, Misa, etc. online. Yes you can see the colors, but I would much rather get the other brands for the same price. Plus you can pretty much find most colors swatched online at some of the great polish blogs out there.

Back to my haul. From left to right. NYC Polyester Pink Creme. Hubby says it looks like Pepto Bismol, but I think it's pretty. Pure Ice First Time. Gorgeous light green crome. Pure Ice Peony. A pretty frosty medium pink. Pure Ice Scandal. A beautiful vampy dark red.

My color right now is China Glaze Spontaneous. I couldn't get a good pic of this. It's less grapey and more dusty in reality. I just couldn't capture it. I'm going on my third day and it has lasted really well. Maybe it's the Orly Bonder I got. Well just a quickie today.

New sparkles

Just a quickie right now. I got some new polishes from Target, but haven't got a pic yet. I'll talk more about them once I get a pic. I did use one of them, Rimmel Out There to go over my Shower Together to get one more day wear out of it. It was starting to chip so I touched it up and jazzed it up with one coat. I'm trying to go as long as possible between polish changes so I don't dry out my nails with remover. Ok here's a pic.

I'm still in a bit of a creative funk and haven't finished any of my projects. I hope to snap out of it soon and have something new to share.

New colors....

I got my latest fingernail polish haul today. I ordered these from ebay and then found out I could have gotten them cheaper from here. Oh well, that's what impulse buying gets you. You should see my shopping cart from Head2toe. I keep adding to it now I just need to get some sales in my etsy shops to pay for it. For now here's these colors from left to right all China Glaze: Recycle, or Audrey, Paper Chasing, Spontaneous, and Breakin. They are gorgeous!!!!

Today I am wearing China Glaze Shower Together. I got this the other day in the haul I showed in my last post. I really like this polish. The first coat was streaky, but the second evened everything out. Please excuse any bubbles as I thinned my top coat and all the bubbles hadn't worked out before I used it. Plus the thinner turned my Out the Door purple. The thinner is clear, but I guess the don't agree with each other. Weird.

I'm still working on the new pincushion so be sure to check back for it.

Good news......

Well I got the job working for Viking! YEAH!!!!! It will be nice to have some steady pay coming in. I've been getting myself used to the idea of being in the working world again. I start on May 11th so I have a little time to get ready.

I used to be quite the girlie girl with hair, make-up, and nails, but since I haven't been working I didn't bother. Well it's time to get back into the swing of things. I'm getting my nails back into shape and I've found a lot of groups online to share nails and make up pics, so I will also be sharing them here. I've ordered the 120 palette eye shadow from ebay which is loaded with tons of bright, cool colors. I've seen lots of talk about it on you tube. I'll share a pic when it comes. I guess if I'm not painting collages I'll be painting my face. Either way I love color!!!!

This is what I'm wearing right now it's Cabana Banana from OPI. I have been collecting many polishes over the years so I don't know if this is still available or not.

On the creative front I had another custom pincushion request. I put a wrist strap on one of my existing pincushions. I've had plans to make some wrist pincushions, but just haven't gotten around to it.
I've got a new style using circles in the works. It should be finished up tonight. I don't know what it is about circles, but I love them!

I just found out I am in the 2D artisan challenge on Blockhead radio. It is my girlie piece Apricot. I sure would appreciate any votes if you have time to hop over there.

I have some new toys I've been playing with. I'll post more once I get pics taken.........

I won...

I can't believe it, but I won something from a blog giveaway. A set of clear alphabet stamps!! The wonderful peeps at Lohman Trading Company were hosting the giveaway on this blog The Idie Showcase Blog. YEAH!!!!!

I just had to share a pic of this sinful cake I had from Publix this week. Talk about chocolate overload. I ordered it with vanilla cake rather than chocolate and I think that was a good choice. It was yummy!!

I finished up my custom pincushion order plus she bought an extra one for a gift! YEAH! I also sold another of the spring chick ones today, so maybe things are gonna pic up.

I have a job interview for a Viking sewing machine sales team inside my Joannes store this Thursday, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Oh to be surrounded by crafty goodness and get paid! It's actually the first interview I've gotten from all the jobs I've applied for. It's rough out there. I got denied a chance for a position at a sporting good store because my credit wasn't good enough. What's that? I'm still in shock and worried because most places I've applied to say they run a check. I never thought my credit would prevent me from getting a job. UGH!!!

Well enough of that. I'm just gonna believe in the Viking position and keep positive!!!
