Kiana's Prom & Fimo Nails

i hope you're all enjoying your weekend! =)

its been a beautiful weekend!~ besides for the fact that i've been off work since Thursday, the weather has been beautiful--just to top it off! =)

so on Thursday, Kiana & i went to the mall & we went to Sally's. i was able to pick up a few things..


i've finally found myself in Claire's & i grabbed two bottles of Claire's Mood Fabulous/Funky polish, China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy, Orly's new Spark & Green Apple. [not pictured are Maybelline's Pie in the Sky, Sally Hansen White On, & Forever 21's Love & Beauty Mint.]


i also grabbed a pack of fimo stuff at Sally's. i think i got it for.. $4 something? i forget =P

i was able to try out the fimo stuff on Friday... here's my first attempt:

my thumb has Spark as the tip & a layer of China Glaze's Fairy Dust. pointer finger - pinky; Orly's Cotton Candy, Spark, Sally Hansens White On, & Orly's Green Apple.

uhm..i personally like the fimo on nails without a full nail base color. the fimo with the tip of the nail painted looks cuter. i'll have to try a manicure of just tips & fimo one day... <--does that really make any sense? haha

moving on..Friday was also the day of Kiana's prom. i was her personal chauffeur that day. i drove her everywhere to get ready & also i had to buy her everything. she was going NUTSSS cause her boyfriend accidentally burned his shirt when ironing it, just 2 hours before prom..Kiana spazzed out on me & Salena to take him to get a new shirt...so we did. she's a Prom-zilla! gosh! i cant imagine how crazy she'll be when its her WEDDING day! i wanna avoid that! hahaha

but i did do her nails. she told me i could do whatever i wanted & then when i finally did them Friday afternoon, she wouldnt let me do what i wanted. i had to do what SHE wanted. it was very aggravating for me... =P here's how her nails turned out...


this was my first time doing a full manicure with acrylics. its not too bad but it didnt turn out too well either...

here's a close up;

i literally bugged her for 20 minutes to let me put on the burgundy glitter. she's such a pain! =P

to end this entry..i even though i tweeted it on twitter..i wanna post it on here too. starting today, im going to [try] to go a full week without buying any nail polishes! since March, every single week, i've bought nail polishes..thus i have SOOO many untried polishes just stacking up!~ its pretty ridiculous! i've been meaning to buy new volleyball shoes for foreverrrr now but i spend all my money on nail polishes...but this week...im gunna try REALLY hard not to buy nail polishes & get new clothes & shoes ^^ please wish me luck..i need all the luck cause i have no self control what-so-ever! and if you have tips on how NOT to buy polishes, please share! ahahaha

enjoy the rest of your day,
<3KATRINA

  11. Cute nails.

    Hadn't seen the two Orlys before and they're really to my liking. They're vibrant, yellow % lime, and they're Orlys, which in my case means they're perfect.
    Think I need to hunt them down.

  12. my only advice not to buy polish would be stay at home and never go out, and also stay away from internet. (however it never work for me either)

    ReplyDelete
  13. those are cute! good luck with your no-buy!

    ReplyDelete
  14. schmut, thanks! and yes..Spark & Green Apple are super cute! they're new & the displays at Sallys has the two polishes sitting directly next to one another..it was hard to pick up one & not the other! hahah i hope you'll be able to find them soon =)

    Rebie, thanks! thats just about what im going to do -- avoid going to the stores. i think i've been to the drugstores & sally's soooooo many times in the past 2 weeks..i should be able to last a week without going. haha

    aw, thanks Emma! =)

    see? the fruity fimo's are much fun! i also like the fimo on nails with polish just on the tips or only half of the nails have color. did i say it right?! lol anyway, it looks like this --> http://hueandme-jan.blogspot.com/2010/05/nailed-it-fimo-on-yellow.html

  28. I picked up a pack of the fruit nail decals. Would my usual Seche Vite or Out The Door be strong enough to hold them in place?

    ReplyDelete
  29. for sure, Seche Vite will do a good job. i havent tried Out The Door but it should be good too. just to make sure, do two coats of topcoat =)
