Long time no post/Randomness

What's up guys! I missed all of you tremendously. I dunno what's wrong with me lately, I haven't felt like doing ANYTHING, not even makeup (Gasp, the horror)! However, I'm back with a new post, so don't be too mad at me! LOL!

I recently got my nails done by my B-E-A-U-TIFUL friend Yang (whose pics can be viewed under the 4th of July post). She's self taught at how to do nails, and she's AMAZING! Here are the pics of my nails after the artist finished her gig:






I know the edges are not so smooth, but we don't have the professional nail buffing system to smooth out the surface after applying the powder thingy (how technical, LOL). She painted the flowers using the acrylic paint, she's SO PRECISE!

However, I think the nails are too long for me, so I took them off after 4 days of wearing them. IT TOOK ME FOREVER AND A HALF TO GET THEM OFF! I finally just cut them off, so I still have pieces of fake nails stuck to my real ones. Proof:





I found that painting nails are so fun, so I went to a beauty supply store w/ Yang to pick up more nails to do myself...I'm too dumb to create beautiful nails like Yang....I give up:




Yes, I know I fucked up that little guy's face...so sue me! LOL!

Here's my nail polish collection, too bad I'm not talented enough to use them all the time!


I was bored the other day, so I did a smoky look in under 10 mins. Please excuse the fact that I look scary hooker-ish.
