Nail - Rainbow

This was one of those days when I spent soooooo much time doing a design and never managed to get a good picture! My hands were completely dried up no matter how much hand cream or oil I used. I pretty much photoshopped the crap out of these pictures to make my hands look normal. After this design I had to clip off the gel extensions I had on and now I'm giving my real nails some time to grow out a little bit before I try them again. 
My first race is coming up and it's the "Gay 5K" during Pride Week! I may have to try out another rainbow design for race day.

Nail - Purple Two Ways

I did a couple of designs with my new lavender polish but I got super lazy and didn't take take many pictures. The first one I like because it looked like a starry night with lavender fading to purple fading to black. The second one I didn't like very much though. Maybe I'll improve on the first design and post it again!

Nail - Green Chevron

I did my own gel extensions this week! I have really strong natural nails so I don't really need to do extensions, but I liked the idea that I can sculpt them to the shape I want. My natural nails can be bumpy and some curve more than others so with extensions they would theoretically turn out straight and smooth. They still turned out bumpy, but it was my first try and it's really not that bad. I had three break on my right hand but I was able to glue them back on without a problem. It was extremely time consuming but I had fun doing it! I never really liked getting professorial manicures even though they are much more skilled than I am and turn out better in the end. I always thought it was fun to do my nails. I remember having those peel-off nail polish kits as a kid and making all sorts of designs. I uess I haven't gotten over it!
I'm loving this green and grey color combination...

Lilac Festival

Festival season is here and we have been trying to get out to as many events as possible. My dad used to go to the Rochester Lilac Festival when he was a kid. It was fun even though we got rained out only a couple hours after getting there. We still managed to get in some dancing!

Nail - Leopard Print

This was my last full week of classes so I had SO much homework to do! We still have class next week but most of the big assignments have already been turned in. Now I can relax a little bit before finals week. Lucky for me I only have two finals and one should be a breeze.
My mom came out this past weekend to hang out with us and Ellie. We ran around all weekend and had lots of fun! I have lots of backyard pictures to share. I'm loving the warm weather and sunshine.

Ellie inspired my nails this week! My aunt got her this cute leopard print fleece onesie with a little hood and heart shaped knee patches. It was a little tricky to paint the heart and then put the gemstones on my nail but I like how it turned out.
